Adobe has revealed the set of updates it will be providing for its Creative Cloud in the upcoming IBC 2016. These include video collaboration and VR.

Adobe’s video tools have added another dimension to their service. The company has been hard at work to provide users with a wholesome experience with their service and put away the shroud of distrust and abandonment that has been covering their name. They have revealed a whole range of new features for their Creative Cloud video tools like improvements to the VR workflow, new team collaboration features, etc.

The new features are set to affect a lot of areas in Adobe’s service. They have also rolled out updates for the Character Animator software and other important updates to speed the video editing workflow. As for the collaborative features, they let people working on different software like After Effect, Premiere Pro, and Prelude to access shared Team Projects.

These do not require dedicated server hardware to operate, and include smart version control and automatic intelligent conflict resolution. This lets everyone work on the same project simultaneously without affecting the other’s work. The users don’t overwrite on the work done by others, thus keeping their works separate. This makes doing reversions much simpler than before, and local storage for the project files is supported as well.

The focus is not mainly on team-focussed features but also on VR, 3D and animated content creation. Adobe Premiere, for instance, will be improved to detect VR source video on ingest automatically and set it to stereoscopic over/under, left/right, or monoscopic  output correctly as well as apply the proper settings.

Working on lower thirds and simple motion graphics has been made a lot easier within the Adobe Premiere, thereby taking away the need to jump to After Effects. This change to the Live Text Template will surely be welcomed by the Adobe user community, and with the new files format making file sharing more simple and efficient, it’s surely going to make Adobe Premiere a lot more useful.

Other modifications to the Premiere include Audition’s fine-tuning features that are used for direct audio editing, making Premiere the one-stop solution for the video editing workflow. Posting your videos on your portfolio on the Adobe creative professional network has been simplified with the Behance publishing option.

Speaking about After Effects and Character Animator, the former has been blessed with a new 3D Render Engine designed to improve rendering performance on all devices as well as other allowing real-time raw footage playback. The Character Animator has an exciting new feature, where you can use your webcam to animate a cartoon puppet which you have created. Animated segments can be created quite easily and quickly using this.
