Adobe is using artificial intelligence and machine learning to increase the capabilities of its video editing tools in Adobe Creative Cloud.
The company announced new features in CC including Content-Aware Fill for video, powered by its AI technology Adobe Sensei, which allows users to track a discrete object across a clip, remove it and fill that space with pixels that blend with the surrounding imagery. Adobe said the technology could be used for anything from removing anachronistic giveaways from a period piece to erasing a stray boom mic.
Other updates include faster Mask Tracking for effects and colour workflows, dual GPU optimisation and improved hardware acceleration for HEVC and H.264 formats in Premiere Pro. In After Effects, enhancements include GPU-accelerated effects, such as Change Colour and Roughen Edges.
“Video consumption is exploding across broadcast, film, streaming services and digital marketing, resulting in a spike in content creation demands,” said Steven Warner, vice president of digital video and audio, Adobe. “Through optimised performance and intelligent new features powered by Adobe Sensei, Creative Cloud helps video professionals eliminate the most tedious production tasks so they can focus on storytelling and executing on their creative vision.”
