New features in the November 2016 Release

Collaborating using Team Projects

New in the November 2016 release

This release introduces Team Projects, a hosted service that lets editors and motion graphics artists work collaboratively in projects within Prelude CC, Premiere Pro CC, and After Effects CC. This service adds deep collaboration features such as version history and smart conflict resolution. Post-production professionals can share their edits and get the latest changes from collaborators, allowing concurrent changes to happen on a single project – which is powerful for workflows where you can ingest clips in Prelude at the same time when visual effects and motion graphics are being done in After Effects and the edit is being refined in Premiere Pro.

Voice-over in rough cuts

New in the June 2015 release

Adobe Prelude CC now lets you add voice-over to Rough Cuts. Although Prelude lets you add Audio clips separately, you can use the voice-over feature to record audio clips on the fly, without the need for a separate recording software.

You can record and overlay voiceovers video footages during the basic editing process, before the final sequence is complete. Adobe Prelude lets you add multiple voiceovers to a Rough Cut, as well.

For more information, see Add Voice-over to Rough Cuts.

New API to ingest media

New in the June 2015 release

You can now use the new API to ingest media in to a Project directly. Previously, on using the Ingest API, the Ingest dialog was displayed as an extra step before you could select and eventually ingest media (video and audio clips).

Now, you can simply use the new Ingest Media API to select media files you want to ingest, and the selected files are added to the Project at the click of a button. The new API, not only ingests the media, but all related data files (.xmp) that contain markers and other meta-data.
