Adobe just revealed Creative Cloud 2015 and these updates are no joke. Let’s take a look at what’s included.
We’ve known an update for Creative Cloud was coming for some time — we just didn’t know exactly when that would happen and what would be included. But yesterday Adobe announced the updated Creative Cloud 2015, and from Photoshop to After Effects, Adobe is bringing new enhancements and features to their entire lineup of desktop apps. Let’s look at the apps that matter to you and give you a rundown of what is being added and updated.
Here’s a quick overview of all of the updates from Adobe’s Creative Cloud YouTube Channel.
Adobe Premiere Pro
Premiere Pro saw some significant updates, especially in terms of color correction and grading. Lumetri Color panel has been added and allows for easier color correction workflows directly in Premiere with the use of sliders. Then there is the addition of Morph Cut, which helps to improve the jump cut transition between two clips. Finally, Adobe added support for the Premiere Clip mobile app, which now allows you to open assets from Premiere Clip directly in Premiere Pro.

Adobe After Effects, Prelude & Audition
After Effects, Prelude, and Audition had a few updates and we’ll cover those all together. Let’s start with After Effects. In the 2015 release, Adobe has added a new face tracking feature that allows editors to create tracking masks for faces and then apply effects and color correction to them without the hassle of keying each frame. Next, Audition sees improvements to workflows by allowing Premiere Pro projects to open natively without the long wait for rendering. And finally, Prelude is giving you the freedom to add voice-over to your rough cuts and then send those back to Premiere Pro for your final edit.
- Face Tracking in After Effects
- Improved Previewing in After Effects
- Dynamic Linking Between Audition and Premiere
- Voice-Over linking from Prelude to Premiere
For the After Effects updates, Pro Video Coalition has released a video that goes through each one of them in some detail.
