Adobe’s Creative Cloud May updates improve Audition and Premiere Pro.
Adobe is back with another round Creative cloud Update. The good news is that for Adobe Audition Audio editing software users now support Apple M1 devices and receive new features and updates including an updated volume meter (also new in) Premiere Pro) and Strip Silence function.
To the Premiere ProDevelopers will see improvements in the subtitle workflow, improved performance with Canon XF-HEVC, and DirectX support on Windows, among other things.
Loudness Meter in Audition and Premiere Pro
The volume meter provides industry standard ITU-based loudness monitoring for broadcast, podcast and streaming media content. This volume meter replaces the loudness radar and has presets for general regional volume requirements. For example, EBU for Europe and ATSC for America as well as new presets that are compatible with Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Netflix and YouTube.
Strip Silence in Audition
According to Adobe, Strip Silence is a feature that allows users to identify and remove silent or inactive areas in recorded clips without losing sync with multitrack audio. You can use this feature to clean up voice recordings, interviews, and multi-track edits. It’s a valuable tool for podcasters.
The parameters can be adjusted for noisy backgrounds or different volume levels between talents. Once identified, “dead air” can be removed quickly, saving you processing time.
Text gradients in Premiere Pro
Gradients previously only available with the Legacy Titler toolset are now part of the Essential Graphics panel. Users can now apply gradients to letters or colorful effects to text and titles. You can use the color picker to select the colors you want and save presets for the next time.
Caption colors for subtitles in Premiere Pro
Annotation elements in the annotation track now have the same color options for annotation as other elements on the timeline. Select Label Color Group to assign labels and label colors and use the same keyboard shortcuts.
Improved trimming of subtitles in Premiere Pro
Annotation elements are linked to their associated video and audio clips, making it easier for you to edit and synchronize your timeline. According to Adobe, simple edits with subtitle elements on the subtitle track behave the same as traditional linked video and audio pairs. Selecting, moving, trimming, and blade editing are applied to video-audio and subtitle elements at the same time. Linking can also be disabled, and individual or multiple caption elements can also be linked manually to a video clip in the timeline.
Other updates include improvements to Canon XF HEVC performance and support for DirectX display technology on Windows. The latter enables HDR playback for Premiere Pro with HDR10-capable monitors and a DirectX-compatible GPU.
