Notes: I’ve been an Adobe Premier/AE/Photoshop user for a very long time. Adobe continues to add more features to their suite of video/image editing with every release. A lot of people were upset with Adobe changing their licensing model. There are benefits to the cloud pricing model and there are liabilities. For me, the benefits outweigh the liabilities. I like the fact that I’m paying for the applications a little each month while I’m actually making money using them. The biggest benefit is that as Adobe adds features I get them. This thirty minute video cover in-depth some of the major updates to the next version of Premiere Pro. The second link is a five minute video interview with Patrick palmer of Adobe about some of the new features.image
