Adobe Just added Video Speed Adjustment To The Adobe Premiere Rush App

Adobe Premiere Rush supercharges video speed adjustment

Adobe Premiere Rush, Adobe’s cross-platform video editor for smartphones, tablets, and PCs, arrived on select Android devices in May following a broad launch last year on PC, Mac, and iOS. Now, Adobe is beefing up Rush with a new feature that enables users to manipulate the speed of videos and add ramps while maintaining pitch.

The speed adjustment controls in Rush version 1.2 live in the speed panel (under the subheader Range Speed) and display speed as a percentage, where 100% is real time and values below or above the baseline are in slow and fast motion, respectively. You’re able to enter a specific value or use a slider, and optionally enable the Maintain Pitch option to preserve the original pitch of audio at any speed. (Normally, speeding up footage raises the audio’s pitch, while slowing it down lowers it.)

The feature niftily lets you adjust speed within portions of clips as opposed to whole scenes. Creating these portions is as easy as dragging the blue handles on the target clip in the timeline or in the speed panel; as the handles are dragged, Rush displays particular frames where the changes take full effect.

As for ramping, which refers to the progressive speeding up or slowing down in or out of a speed range, they’re set to 0.5 seconds by default, but can be adjusted to any value. As Adobe notes, they help smooth out speed changes that might otherwise seem jarring.

Lastly, the updated Rush lets you manually set a clip’s duration, after which it automatically adjusts the clip’s speed to the appropriate value.

Among Adobe Rush’s other core features are integrated color, audio, and motion graphics tools and one-click publishing to social media sites like Facebook and YouTube, with support for native YouTube features like video scheduling and thumbnail selection. Also on tap is auto-ducking, which leverages the power of Adobe Sensei — Adobe’s machine learning framework — to automatically generate clip volume keyframes from music to reduce the volume when dialogue, sound effects, and other audio elements are present…Read more

Adobe’s Premiere Rush version 1.2 adds speed adjustments

Adobe’s Premiere Rush latest update brings its highest requested feature—speed adjustments—to its mobile video editor.

When Adobe’s cross-platform editing app Premiere Rush launched last year, I was excited for the tools it provided and also for the opportunities it gave beginner content creators since its so simple and easy to use from a mobile device. However, the first iteration did lack a few features.

Figure A

Recently, Premiere Rush got a new update. One of the most requested feature—speed adjustments—was added to Premiere Rush version 1.2.

Speed up and slow down

With Premiere Rush version 1.2 users can now adjust the playback speed of their video footage to truly immerse viewers into a scene. You can use speed to show extended time periods in a few moments or conversely, slow footage down to draw your viewers in for peak interest (Figure A). Premiere Rush version 1.2 makes this easy to achieve for any video creator.

The interface of Premiere Rush version 1.2 is touch friendly on the desktop version, and this translates well with mobile devices. The speed option is clearly visible on the menu and uses toggles, sliders, and handles to help you dial in your speed settings…Read more

Adobe Lightroom is Available from the Mac App Store

Adobe Lightroom is Available from the Mac App Store

Adobe Lightroom is now on the Mac App Store

The first major Adobe app has arrived on the Mac App Store.

The first major Adobe app to be available on the Mac App Store has finally arrived. Adobe Lightroom, one of the apps in its Creative Cloud suite, is now available for download. It was one of the applications Apple promised would be available through its platform when it introduced the newly redesigned Mac App Store, along with Office 365 and Live Studio from Snap Inc. Microsoft’s office application suite made its way to the store earlier this year, marking the first time Apple has offered a bundle of software on Mac’s application marketplace.

To be clear, Adobe already offers other products on the platform, but they’re lighter versions of its major applications — like Photoshop Elements instead of the full-feature Photoshop…Read more

Adobe brings Lightroom to the Mac App Store

Adobe has brought Lightroom, its flagship photo editing and management app, to the Mac App Store a year after Apple announced its big revamp coinciding with the release of macOS Mojave. The move is Adobe’s first major app to make the leap.

Adobe’s Lightroom joins Microsoft’s Office 365, Panic’s Transmit, and Bare Bones Software’s BBEdit as major Mac apps now available from the largest catalog of Mac apps in the world.

While major developers were quick to embrace the iOS App Store, many Mac developers hesitated to put their work on the Mac App Store because they already had other options for selling their work. Additionally, Apple imposed some restrictions for apps sold on its official App Store that were similar to iOS, but entirely new to the more openly permissive software model that has long existed for Macs.

Apple has made some adjustments to accommodate Mac developers’ needs, and last year also gave its Mac App Store the same overhaul that it brought to iOS 11 two years ago. The revamped App Store in macOS Mojave, just like iOS 11’s a year earlier, focuses on editorially curated content, with regular “App of the Day” and “Game of the Day” sections as well as lists, how-tos, developer interviews and feature pieces highlighting third-party developer’s work.

Apple opens the aperture for Lightroom

Another enticement for Adobe bringing Lightroom to the Mac App Store: Apple’s own Aperture is now going away, with last year’s Mojave being the last version of macOS capable of running the aging app. Apple first launched Aperture back in 2005 as a professional version of iPhoto.

Aperture was initially viewed as Apple taking on Photoshop, but the new title was really aimed at managing photographic workflows rather than comprehensive photo editing. Adobe was quick to react, however, launching its own beta of Lightroom just weeks after its launch.

After competing for several years, Apple essentially put Aperture into maintenance mode in 2014 and last version of macOS capable of running its aging, 32-bit Aperture software. The title hasn’t been listed on the Mac App Store since 2015.

Lightroom for pros in the Mac App Store

Emphasizing its professional audience, Adobe commonly refers to the title as “Photoshop Lightroom.” The app is a free download from the Mac App Store and comes with a free one-week trial…Read more

Adobe endorses Apple Mac App Store with Lightroom release

The photo editing software is the first Adobe product to arrive in Apple’s online store.

Stephen Shankland/CNET

The Mac App Store has received significant criticism, but Apple’s efforts to improve it apparently have paid off, as Adobe started using the store to sell its Lightroom software for the first time on Thursday. The photo-editing and cataloging software, geared for photo enthusiasts and pros who want something richer than Google Photos or Apple Photos, costs the same as outside the Mac App Store: $10 per month, including the software and 1TB of online storage.

“With the redesign of the Mac App Store, it was the perfect time to set this in motion and make Lightroom the first Adobe app to be available on the MAS,” Sharad Mangalick, Lightroom principal product manager, said in a statement. “We’ve been working closely with Apple to bring Lightroom to leverage the new MAS.”

On iPhones and iPads, the App Store is the only way you can download software, and plenty of Adobe apps are available there. But on Macs, you can also download apps directly from the software maker. By bypassing the Mac App Store, developers can sidestep some security-minded restrictions, Apple approval processes and the 30% fee Apple charges.

Plenty of software is available through the Mac App Store, though, which can be familiar to iPhone users, bring buyers some assurances that software can be trusted, and offer sellers benefits when it comes to software discovery, distribution and payments. Apple scored one notable victory when Microsoft released Office 365 on the Mac App Store in January.

Adobe offers Lightroom in the Mac App Store with a seven-day free trial. “Once your free trial ends, the recurring monthly payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account,” Adobe says on the Lightroom Mac App Store listing. If you want to cancel, you have to do so at least 24 hours before the beginning of a new monthly billing cycle. It’s a 603MB download.

Adobe’s Lightroom software, now available in the Mac App Store, is designed for editing and cataloging photos and costs $10 per month. Apple

One app that isn’t available through the Mac App Store, though, is Adobe’s Lightroom Classic, a version with a longer lineage and a richer feature set. For now at least, the newer Lightroom, until recently called Lightroom CC, is the only option.

“Lightroom is better suited architecturally to operate within the structure of the Mac App Store,” Mangalick said of Lightroom Classic’s absence. “We can’t go into specifics, but it is related to sandboxing and how Lightroom and Lightroom Classic differ in approaching photo organization.” Sandboxing is a security precaution that reins in potentially badly behaving apps, but it also limits the power of legitimate apps…Read more

Adobe Lightroom returns to the Mac App Store

The first pro Adobe app in Apple’s redesigned store.

Adobe has made Lightroom, its pro photo editing and management tool, available on the Mac App Store. It’s the first pro Adobe app to make it to the App Store since Apple redesigned it with Mojave, last year’s version of macOS.

The Mac App Store version of Lightroom is the “new” Lightroom formerly known as Lightroom CC, which syncs with complementary mobile and tablet apps and has a different UI to what is now called Lightroom Classic. It’s free to download and use for a week, then it’ll require…Read more

Adobe Fresco brings painting to the iPad

Do you like to be creative on your iPad? Adobe brings Fresco to Creative Cloud, so you can paint wherever you want.

Adobe has a wide range of professional tools available via Creative Cloud. As a (professional) photographer you can, for example, get started with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. However, many creative people do not stick to a single hobby and for them there is now added Adobe Fresco , previously known as Project Gemini.

So anyone who likes to paint a portrait instead of taking a photo can work with Adobe Fresco later this year. That has got its name from an age-old Italian painting technique. It is not known when the app will be available correctly, but we do know that the private beta test is currently available. Adobe thus comes up with its own alternative to popular apps such as Procreate…Read more

Upcoming free app for the Apple iPad might turn you into the next Michelangelo

Adobe announced today that its drawing and painting app for the iPad originally called “Project Gemini,” will be known as Adobe Fresco when it launches later this year. Fresco is an old technique used for hundreds of years that involves painting on wet plaster. It requires the artist to complete the painting before the plaster dries. That type of “spontaneous creativity” is at the center of Adobe Fresco. The app will first be available for iPads with Apple Pencil support, which means that users can unleash their creativity wherever they are. Eventually, Fresco will be offered for other stylus supporting touchscreen devices.

The app uses Adobe’s AI-based Sensei platform for the Live Brushes feature. This allows users to “paint” on the app using watercolors and oils and experience the same response as a painter would in real life. Adobe says that those using the app can even paint with virtual water to dilute colors. The company has gone to the trouble of determining how certain paint pigments interact on different types of surfaces and has recreated these experiences for the Adobe Fresco app.

Brushes used in Photoshop can also be employed in Adobe Fresco and users have access to digital brushes from artist and digital brush creator Kyle Webster. The app is equipped with vector brushes to allow the artist to “create clean, crisp, and infinitely scaleable lines and shapes.” And users will be able to create their own brushes thanks to Adobe Capture.

 Drawing is fundamental to developing creative literacy. It is most people’s first connection to creativity, and every great painting, sculpture, film, or building began with a drawing. And today, more than ever, it’s essential for everyone to develop creative literacy. As artificial intelligence takes over more and more repetitive and mundane tasks, creativity is the unique human quality that sets each of us apart and helps us succeed.

Connecting brain and hand through drawing unlocks creative magic. To forge that connection, a digital generation needs a digital tool, which is why we’re developing a powerful and sophisticated drawing and painting application.”-Adobe

While Fresco will have professional features like layers, masking, and selection, Adobe points out that the app has what it calls a “streamlined” interface that even children can use. And Fresco users will be able to move their project between the app and Photoshop seamlessly. The art can also be exported to PDF where it can be edited using Adobe Illustrator.

Adobe’s upcoming iPad painting app is named Adobe Fresco

Adobe scientists have studied the chemistry of common real-world pigments like cobalt and ochre. They’ve looked at the physics of how watercolors are absorbed into thick, cotton-based paper. And they’ve examined the ways that a thick slash of oil paint dries to add dimension to a painting,” wrote Scott Belsky, Creative Cloud executive vice president…

 “Adobe scientists dangle studied the chemistry of classic accurate-world pigments be pleased cobalt and ochre. They’ve regarded on the physics of how watercolors are absorbed into thick, cotton-basically based paper. They assuredly’ve examined the ways that a thick reduce of oil paint dries so that you simply can add dimension to a painting,” wrote Scott Belsky, Ingenious Cloud govt vp in a weblog post. To that halt, Adobe Fresco will encompass a original characteristic called Are residing Brushes which mimic how accurate watercolor and oil paints behave on a canvas. Reckoning on the instruments primitive, colours can bleed into every diversified or be applied in neat, crisp, radiant strokes. To boot to having access to brushes from Photoshop, artists can dangle derive admission to to thousands of brushes created by digital brush maker Kyle Webster.

Recordsdata automatically keep on Ingenious Cloud, giving artists a replace for iOS’s file management system or Dropbox. Being cloud-basically based further expands the Fresco’s skill and permits artists to manufacture on-the-plug…Read more

Adobe Acrobat’s PDF Software Stays Ahead of the Pack

Adobe Acrobat’s PDF Software Stays Ahead of the Pack

Acrobat Pro DC: Adobe’s PDF software is still the one to beat

A feature-packed solution for professionals

Since its development back in the 1990s, the PDF has gone on to become the industry standard for documents. The file’s ability to work across all platforms has seen it become a ubiquitous format, and Adobe’s software remains the most popular choice for viewing, editing, and sharing PDFs.

The latest Acrobat Pro DC suite brings a slew of benefits and features that allow you to create and edit your PDFs, export to Office formats, read your documents across multiple devices, sync and store them in the cloud, sign the PDFs with ease, and much more.

Adobe Acrobat Tablet

One the best elements of the digital age is less reliance on paper. We all know what it’s like having to wait for a form to arrive in the post so we can sign it and send it back. Some companies let you print the documents out at home, but that still requires using snail mail once they’re signed. Collecting physical signatures is said to add 3.1 days to a process, yet just 18 percent of North American businesses use e-signatures, and over 60 percent are unaware of this solution.

Adobe Sign

Adobe’s Fill & Sign feature takes the physical element out of paperwork: you can use the iOS or Android app to add your signature to a PDF with a finger, or just type your name using a desktop keyboard and it will be turned into a handwritten format, which is then stored and ready for use on any PDF.

You can even convert a photo of a form into a signable PDF. The tool can also be used to request signatures—recipients don’t need to purchase anything or sign up to use it—and form deliveries are tracked.

Adobe Tablet

In today’s connected society, it’s important to be able to read and edit your work on the go. That’s where Adobe’s Document Cloud comes in, letting you access all your PDFs from your smartphone or from any computer using a web browser. Collaboration is also made simple, with recipients receiving links to PDFs that they can open, view, and comment on, all without needed to sign in or install software.

Acrobat Pro DC’s latest update brings with it a revamped UI that makes accessing the plethora of tools on offer very simple…Read more

Adobe unveils handy capture mode in its Scan app

Adobe Acrobat Scan app

There’s going to be some rejoicing for marketers on the move, as Adobe has unveiled a new feature in its Adobe Scan app, enabling users to toggle between a variety of capture modes to ensure that documents, forms, whiteboards, and business cards are captured picture-perfectly as PDFs.

The new feature enables users to select modes by swiping left or right. Once captured, Adobe Scan uses Adobe Sensei AI to intelligently identify and sharpen printed or handwritten text while removing elements such as glare and shadows. Users can then store and share these PDFs, fill and sign them in Acrobat Reader mobile, as well as pull contact details directly from business cards into their phone’s contacts.

The app has amassed nearly 30 million downloads and 140 million scans.

Together with Acrobat Reader mobile – a free PDF reader built by Adobe that works with Adobe Scan and is packed with essential PDF tools – users can work on-the-go as if they were in the office.

The app has also added the ability to automatically search digital documents instead of flipping through stacks of paper, filling and signing forms with a few taps, and annotating and sharing trackable PDFs – all possible via a mobile device…read more

PDF Reader Pro – View, Annotate, Form Filler review: A lightweight Windows app for basic editing needs

This freebie makes it easy to edit, annotate, and share documents, but it lacks advanced functions.

Adobe PDF Reader Pro

PDF Reader Pro – View, Annotate, Form Filler tells you everything you need to know  about it right there in its name. This free, lightweight Windows app provides a basic set of tools for working with Adobe Acrobat documents in an unintimidating interface.

PDF Reader Pro eschews the Office-style interface you see in a lot of PDF editors. Instead, a row of icons above the document pane provides access to editing functions. Another set down the left side lets you view the current document as thumbnails, change the display, or print.

The editing functions are pretty basic. You can add, highlight, underline, and strikethrough text; make freehand markups; add notes, hyperlinks, and stamps; and bookmark pages. A three-dot menu at the end of the top toolbar holds the file info, save, and share buttons. With the last, you can share a PDF via Dropbox, Email, Skype, Twitter, and other apps. A link is included to add more options from Microsoft Store.

PDF Reader Pro makes editing text simple and intuitive.

The straightforward interface makes editing docs quick and easy. To add text, for example, you just click the text icon, which opens a drop-down menu where you can select your font style, color, and size. Then you just place the cursor where you want it and type away. Adding a stamp is as simple as choosing one of the 14 offered, then clicking on the page where you want it to appear.

Clicking the BOTA button from the left-side toolbar allows you to view any of the bookmarks, outlines, thumbnails, and annotations associated with the current document by toggling through a smaller sub-toolbar. From here you can jump to specific bookmarks, sections, chapters, or pages within a document and quickly scroll through text revisions and comments.

PDF Reader Pro also supports PDF forms, allowing you to fill in interactive fields such as check and text boxes. You can sign documents and open password-protected files, as well…read more

Adobe Premiere Rush Debuts on Android

Adobe Premiere Rush Debuts on Android

Premiere Rush, Adobe’s video-editing app for YouTubers, is now available on Android

Adobe’s Premiere Rush CC, which arrived on the desktop and iOS last October, is now available on Android. The video-editing app is a simplified, mobile version of Adobe’s more powerful Creative Cloud software, but borrows some key features from Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Audition. For example, there are motion graphics templates from Adobe Stock for smooth transitions and auto-ducking features that balance and adjust audio to the background music.

Adobe says the app is tailored to YouTubers and online video creators, with exporting options optimized for social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. That means you can input your video title and add metadata like descriptions in Premiere Rush, without having to go through the process in each individual app. The app also automatically syncs projects to the cloud across desktop and mobile, so you can pick up where you left off on any device.

Hands On With Adobe’s Premiere Rush Video Editor for Android

Mobile video editing tools have struggled to keep up with the exploding demand from a wide variety of users — ranging from professional video bloggers to casual users sharing their experiences. There are plenty of simple, consumer-oriented tools, and some cool special-purpose tools like DJI’s Mimo, but most of them don’t tie into a larger ecosystem or full professional workflow. Adobe has been working to change that with its Premiere Rush entry-level video editing tool.

Available since the fall on Mac, Windows, and iOS, Rush is now shipping on Android. The app has a deceptively simple interface but is powered by the same underlying engine as its beefy sibling, Adobe’s Premiere Pro. That means it benefits from the same high-quality rendering, motion-graphics templates, and presets, and that its projects can be directly imported into Premiere Pro for further work. I’ve been using Rush on Windows since its release, but as an Android phone user, I haven’t been able to try out the mobile version until now. After using the Android version, I’ve come away impressed.

A Clever Implementation of Rush’s UI on a Phone Screen

It is no easy feat to cram a powerful video editing interface into a touch-only device and a phone-sized screen, but Adobe has done a remarkably good job. Essentially all the capabilities of desktop Rush seem to be there, although they can be a little harder to find. The UI is responsive, and for anyone used to the mobile version of Lightroom, will seem familiar.

However, the small screen and being touch only does have its drawbacks. First, an errant finger can cause all sorts of trouble. It is remarkably easy to forget that you’re in a particular mode and accidentally duplicate content or add an unwanted title, for example. Fortunately, Undo is only a touch away. It can also be hard to select small screen elements. When I inadvertently added extra copies of a title to one of my clips, it wasn’t easy to select it precisely enough to delete it. Before I managed to do that, I’d added a couple more. It can also be tough to see exactly what is happening between clips. Short transitions are almost invisible.

But overall, the interface is very usable, although I can’t wait until it runs on some larger-screen devices. There is quite a bit of good online tutorial and help material, but much of it uses the desktop version of Rush to illustrate how to do specific task… read more

Adobe Launches Significant Update to Premiere Rush

Adobe’s Premiere Rush application, an all-in-one tool for shooting, editing, and sharing videos, has just received a significant update.

Premiere Rush has already been available for Windows, OS X, and iOS. The software brings simplified versions of tools from Premiere Pro and Audition (Adobe’s pro video and audio tools, respectively) into a single app. With a focus on creating and sharing online videos, Rush has always had an emphasis on portability, enabled by Adobe’s creative cloud.

The new update brings Premiere Rush to Android phones, via the Google Play Store and Samsung Galaxy Store. While I have an iPhone, I’ve found Premiere Rush to be a great way to shoot and edit short videos in the field, and I’m happy to see Adobe bringing this app to more users.

Along with the new Android app, all users now have access to new Motion Graphics templates. A number of additional templates are also available via Adobe Stock.

The starter plan for Premiere Rush offers access to a full featured version, and is available for both desktop and mobile users. Users can create an unlimited number of projects, but are limited to exporting up to three projects… read more
