Adobe turns up the speed with major Premiere Pro and After Effects updates

Ahead of the NAB 2023 broadcast industry show, Adobe has highlighted key new features in their video apps. These include AI-powered text-based editing, significant GPU acceleration, and new ways to collaborate efficiently in the newest version of Premiere Pro (which was, by the way, used to edit over 60% of films at the last Sundance Festival). 

Text-based editing isn't the same as speech-to-text; Premiere Pro can already do that (though has now learned some more languages). It instead means that an editor can access the transcript and cut and paste parts, just like a word processor, and have Premiere Pro adjust the timeline accordingly, slashing the time it takes to prepare a rough cut. If you're not already an Adobe Cloud user, you can try Premiere Pro for free.
