Adobe Max Roundup: The Creative Cloud Continues to Grow

first_imgAdobe Max reveals, yet again, that Adobe’s Creative Cloud is the across-the-board digital resource for video and film creatives. Here’s everything coming to the Cloud in 2017.Top image from Adobe Max via Annie St. CyrAdobe Max is becoming the go-to mega-conference for the company’s growing army of digital creatives. Hosting over ten-thousand digital designers, photographers, videographers, editors, and all manner of multi-hat wearing creatives in San Diego, Adobe Max quite literally jam-packed a convention center full of all things Adobe. Guest speakers Jordan Peele and Quentin Tarantino highlighted presentations by Adobe’s program designers that previewed a host of updates and new features for the next version of the Creative Cloud.For those who haven’t joined the flock, Adobe’s current version of its Creative Cloud (Adobe CC 2017) is a monthly-subscription-based “cloud” service that offers different design-based programs in its suite. The full Cloud includes everything from mainstays like Photoshop, InDesign, and Premiere Pro to more advanced programs like After Effects, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver. There are also hybrid, crossover, and ancillary programs (Bridge, Media Encoder, and the new Behance social platform) that tie everything together.For those in the film and video production industry, the Creative Cloud has become the most popular service for across-the-board editing needs. The Cloud has changed how we work by crossing between programs like Premiere Pro and After Effects with assets and renders in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Media Encoder. If Adobe Max showed us anything, it’s that the Cloud is expanding to further engulf all of our video editing needs. Here’s everything you may have missed.Team ProjectsCurrently in beta, CC 2017 will include Team Builder in Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Prelude as a way to encourage real-time sharing and collaboration between multiple creatives through the Cloud and across the world. At its heart, Team Builder is designed to help those with fragmented offices and scattered assets. Its version controls and conflict resolution screens allow for seamless sharing of sequences and compositions that truly streamlines team editing.Social Publishing PanelAlso currently in beta, Adobe’s Social Publishing Panel promises to optimize how social creators publish and maintain their online video content and communities. You can read our full write-up on the program here, but the big take away is the direct workflow that allows for direct publishing and monitoring from within the Cloud. Additional capabilities include:Cross-platform social publishing Strategic recommendations for peak performanceKeyword presetsCross-platform performance trackingRendition managementCustom thumbnailContent schedulingNew 3D Rendering Engine in After Effects CCFor those interested in working in 3D, After Effects CC’s new 3D rendering engine is now natively included and fully integrated in the program. MAXON’s Cinerender technology drastically improves 3D CPU rendering to allow more edibility in 3D elements, including extended text and Shape Layers without leaving After Effects.Real-time Playback of Source Footage for VFX and Motion GraphicsIn conjunction with the updated 3D rendering engine, After Effects has also upped its game in VFX and motion graphics by updating its video preview architecture to play raw footage in real time. You no longer need to cache before previewing footage thanks to new GPU-accelerated effects. Faster rendering in compositions means enhancements for Dynamic Linking between Premiere Pro and After Effects and speeding up your overall workflow on projects.Destination Publishing to BehanceAdobe continues to push its online creative community Behance as its go-between for creators and their social media communities. With the new version, destination publishing will add to existing capabilities to render and share your videos directly to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter (sadly, no Vimeo yet) with rich metadata directly from Premiere Pro (and Media Encoder).Other Updates and New Features to Creative CloudWithout a doubt, Adobe’s Creative Cloud is growing and expanding its empire at full speed. The cloud-based multi-service suite is adapting perfectly with the market as more and more creative individuals are asked to work cross-platform in today’s digital landscape.

I can tell that by what he’s trying to do and the things he’s trying to implement into our football. He has the mentality of winning, which we all want and we all need, so him coming in was just an extra boost for me.”He’s already given me confidence, having a chat with me here and there, and it’s great when a manager has faith in you. I’m delighted he’s here and I’m looking forward to working more with him.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Roundup of Nova Scotia campaign news

first_imgHALIFAX – (NSElxn)The leaders of Nova Scotia’s three main political parties were focused on the provincial capital Tuesday.Each leader spoke before Halifax council about plans for the municipality, where some of the tightest electoral battles are expected in the May 30 provincial election.Tory Leader Jamie Baillie said he’d like the city to be designated a “provincial capital district,” though he was vague on whether that would bring additional funds to beautify Halifax’s parks and main streets.Baillie declined comment on whether the Conservatives would offer the city more than the current $2 million a year for public transit.(The Canadian Press)—(NDP-Commuter-Rail)The NDP says it will partner with the city of Halifax to bring commuter rail to the municipality if elected May 30.Leader Gary Burrill says his party will work to secure access to federal infrastructure money and will provide up to $5 million a year to support annual operating costs.He says the suburban rim around Halifax is “bursting at the seams.”Burrill says having an accessible and modern transportation system will help connect the entire municipality.(The Canadian Press)—(Liberals-Halifax-Gallery)Premier Stephen McNeil is endorsing the idea of a new provincial gallery for downtown Halifax.McNeil says the existing Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is in a heritage building, but efforts have been launched in recent years to replace it due to a lack of space and problems controlling humidity, leaks and air temperature.But he stopped short of providing firm financial commitments — telling city council that he expects Ottawa’s infrastructure program may be able to contribute, along with private donors.McNeil says he believes a larger facility would become a major downtown tourism destination.(The Canadian Press)—(NSElxn-Health-Care)Health care continues to dominate the Nova Scotia campaign as it enters its final week.The Liberals say they will invest $100 million over the next four years to improve access to health care and cut waitlists.They say the Progressive Conservative plan for improving health care “doesn’t stack up” and is short on details.But Tory Leader Jamie Baillie is pledging to fix the province’s “broken system” and is holding a health care rally Wednesday to outline his plan.The NDP is promising to open a pilot mental health hub in Sydney, reverse cuts to community support groups and invest in a mental health and addictions strategy.last_img read more
