flagship Adobe professional video desktop applications as well as the
full range of Adobe desktop applications for design, Web and
photography. With Creative Cloud membership, users also have access to
publishing services to deliver apps and websites, the ability to synch
cloud storage, and new products and exclusive updates as soon as they're
released. This offers more efficient ways to share work with colleagues
and the creative community; and enables more innovation, collaboration
and efficient productions from post to broadcast. Key new updates to the
video tools in Adobe Creative Cloud include:
A new Direct Link Color Pipeline between Adobe Premiere Pro CC and
Adobe SpeedGrade CC�provides an integrated workflow that
allows users to share multi-track timelines seamlessly back and forth;

professionals to create masks and apply effects that track
automatically frame-by-frame throughout a composition to save
countless hours of tedious work.
A more streamlined editing environment provides editors with

individual camera angles on or off as you edit.
