Adobe Creative Cloud 2017

April sees the yearly NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) tradeshow in Las Vegas, so you see a lot of new tech being launched that appeals to creatives working in video post-production, VFX and animation – though many of these will also be of interest to those in other fields, especially the hardware (as a colour-perfect screen will suit both an editor and a designer working on a branding project).

So with NAB here, it's no surprise that Adobe launched updates to Premiere Pro, After Effects et al – though they kicked off the month with updates to Illustrator, InDesign and its still-in-beta Project Felix and Adobe XD apps.

Video pros get some nifty tools to help them work faster – including an Essential Graphics panel in Premiere to quickly adjust parameters on motion graphics templates (shown here, bottom), and a similar panel in After Effects to design these. There's also support for new hardware including Microsoft's Surface Dial and the Apple MacBook Pro's Touch Bar.
