Adobe has previewed new features to be added to its video tools: After Effects CC, Premiere Pro CC, Audition CC, Media Encoder CC, Prelude CC and SpeedGrade CC. Adobe isn't saying when the upgrades will be released, but past experience tell us it should be with us in about a month or two - and the company will be showing them off at the NAB 2015 exhibition next week.

Headline features include Photoshop's Creative Cloud Libraries being added to AE and Premiere, Face Tracking in AE, Photoshop-style colour controls in Premiere Pro, a new way to deal with jump cuts, and interface tweaks to make the tools easier to use on touchscreen Windows tablets and laptops like the Dell M3800 I'm currently writing this story on. There are also two completely new products - the still-in-beta Character Animator and the 'Kuler-for-video' project Candy.
