Adobe has introduced several new AI-powered features in the betas of Premiere Pro, After Effects and Frame.io that will make life easier for editors and editors. Among them is Enhance Speech, which removes background noise and, according to Adobe, can make poorly recorded dialogue sound as if it were “It was recorded in a professional studio.” The Premier Pro voice editing tool now has the ability to automatically remove unnecessary pauses and fillers like “mmm,” “uh,” and the like.
Enhance Speech uses AI to automatically extract background noise from the soundtrack and gives Premiere Pro users the ability to adjust the voice to match the background noise levels of their projects using an additional mix slider. There’s also a new automatic audio category tagging feature that tags clips that contain dialogue, music, sound effects or ambient noise.
Premiere Pro’s voice and text editing tool, added earlier this year, now features noise detection to automatically detect and remove unnecessary pauses and fillers from both the audio track and program-generated subtitles (voice scripts). It is also possible to configure breaks that are longer than the duration to be deleted. Additional updates to Premiere Pro significantly improve timeline responsiveness and speed, improve automatic sound mapping, and add new project templates to help you complete common tasks faster.
After Effects has a full-featured 3D workspace for creating visual effects and motion graphics projects, with support for importing pre-built 3D models. The lighting model generated from the image creates a scene with realistic lighting and shadows, and editing effects that reference other layers, such as: Other functions, such as a displacement map, vector blur, or calculations, can use the 3D model layer as a source. The Roto Brush tool, which automatically selects moving objects, has also been updated, making it easier to separate difficult-to-isolate objects like overlapping objects and hair.
Frame.io has updated its comparison tool to display videos, audio, photos, design files and PDF files so users can compare them and add comments. Later this year, Frame.io Storage Connect will launch for enterprise customers to reduce cloud storage costs by connecting directly to their existing AWS S3 storage.
The listed features are already available for testing in beta versions of software products, which are expected to be released towards the end of the year.
