Adobe has announced the beta release of their latest intuitive audio workflow designed for faster and easier editing and mixing of sound directly in Adobe Premiere Pro so editors can focus on storytelling — and get to a final sound mix with fewer clicks.
The audio workflow changes now available in the Premiere Pro (beta) include:
- Interactive Fade Handles: Click and drag from the edge of a clip to create a variety of custom audio fades in the timeline or drag across two clips to create a crossfade.
- AI-powered Audio Category Tagging: When dragging clips into the sequence, they’ll automatically be identified and labeled with new icons for dialogue, music, sound effects, or ambience. A single click on the icon provides access to the most relevant tools for that audio type in the Essential Sound panel — such as Loudness Matching or Auto Ducking.
- Redesigned FX Clip Badges: An updated badge makes it easier to see which clips have effects added to them. New effects can be added by right clicking the badge, and a single click opens the Effect Control panel for more adjustment without changing the workspace or searching for the panel.
- Modern, Intelligent Waveforms and Clips: Waveforms now dynamically resize when you change the track height and improved clip colors make it easier for you to see and work with audio on the timeline.
