Adobe Unveils New AI Tools for Premiere Pro

Adobe is stepping up its game in Premiere Pro with new generative AI tools that promise to revolutionize video editing. These tools allow users to seamlessly add or remove objects in scenes, extend clips, and even generate entirely new footage directly within Premiere Pro. The company is expanding its Firefly family of AI models to include video capabilities, aiming to integrate these across Creative Cloud and Adobe Express. Additionally, Adobe is opening up Premiere Pro to third-party generative AI models, providing professional video editors with a wider range of creative possibilities without leaving their familiar workflow.

One of the key features introduced is Generative Extend, enabling editors to add frames to make clips longer, facilitating smoother transitions and precise edits. Object Addition and Removal simplify tasks like replacing objects or changing actors' wardrobe, enhancing the editing process. Text to Video is another exciting addition, allowing users to create new footage by typing text or uploading reference images, ideal for storyboarding and B-roll creation.

Adobe's approach to generative AI emphasizes seamless integration and responsible innovation. The company aims to make AI-generated content a natural part of creative workflows while maintaining safety standards and transparency. With new audio workflows also on the horizon, including interactive fade handles and AI-powered audio tagging, Premiere Pro users can expect a comprehensive suite of tools to elevate their editing experience.
