[Inter BEE 2014] Adobe Systems Demo of the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud Introduction to video production on a large 355 inch 4K screen
The shape of the horse is captured by the curves and it is being automatically tracked using the “Mask & Track” function
The Adobe Systems (“Adobe”) booth (booth: 6304) was a standout among the booths in Makuhari Messe Hall 6 at Inter BEE 2014. Upon entering the hall, one’s eyes were immediately drawn to the super-large 355-inch 4K LED screen, measuring 8m by 4m, placed on the main stage. Adobe introduced video production tools for the 4K age in its latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud.
- Adobe Creative Cloud allows using curved lines to select of automatic tracking subjects.
The latest version of “Adobe Premier Pro CC” editing software has native support for the Windows and Macintosh cross-platform codec “GoPro CineForm." GoPro CineForm supports resolutions over 4K and is capable of the smooth editing of 4K contents.
“Mask & Track” is a new feature that was demonstrated which allows the creation of freely-shaped masks using Bézier Curves on a video and for the selection to be automatically tracked. It increases the ease with which users can track and cover a specific person or object and with a light or mosaic, etc.
Further, the “Search bin” feature was introduced which enables searching for files satisfying specific conditions. The ease with which files within a project can be found using keywords was demonstrated.
- Adobe After Effects CC will also support GoPro CineForm
The latest version of “Adobe After Effects CC,” a tool for creating motion graphics and special effects, will support GoPro CineForm encoding/decoding natively. As it is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh, it can be used in mixed-platform environments.
The hardware used for the demo was the latest high-function Japanese-produced Hewlett Packard “Z840” workstation equipped with two Intel 18 Core Xeon processors. However, stress-free 4K60P editing was also shown to be possible on a middle-class “Z640” workstation with 2 Intel 4 Core Xeon processors.
- A packed main stage
At the main stage where the large 355-inch 4K LED screen was located, stage demonstrations and talk events continued without end. The large crowd’s gaze and attention were held by talks about 4K60P video production with Adobe Creative Cloud, color grading, and special effects.
