Adobe Creative Cloud to Release Premiere Pro CC 2014.1

Adobe released an update to its subscription-based Creative Cloud called version "2014.1".

The apps updated include Premiere Pro, After Effects, Prelude, SpeedGrade, Audition, Media Encoder and more.

Here are some features that I find interesting.

  • User Interface color can now be changed... though mostly shades of grey. 
  • New codec support for GoPro Cineform and BlackMagic 4K Raw DNG... so if you are getting an Action Camera, it's nothing else but GoPro.
  • Multi-colored tags and markers for Prelude, the video logging and ingesting tool... currently only one color.
  • In Premiere Pro, 
    • You can  pick a sequence from Media Browser and view it in the timeline... though its locked for safety (just for viewing and copy/pasting only).
    • A favourite folder in Media Browser panel... for bookmarking frequently accessed folders.
    • Consolidate and Transcode feature in Project Manager... so you can change multiple formats to one single format for speedy smoother editing experience (like FCPx).
    • Similarly there is the "Render and Replace" on the clip level and "Restore Unrendered" for better quality final export.
    • Color indicators on the FX icon in the timeline clips to tell you if effects are applied on the original master clip.
  • You can actually install CS6 for backward compatibility from the CC download app.
  • A magic button in SpeedGrade for one-click color matching... I love this one, no need to spend hours tweaking colors anymore.
  • Media Encoder setup to render a file in another machine.
2014.1 will be released later after Adobe MAX next week... 

I will find out more next week.

Side note: I am surveyed and classified by Adobe as a Preditor, aka Producer Editor.

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.

There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
