Here are some of the new features that will be available in Creative Cloud video applications by the end of the year.

Native HEVC/H.265 support

For videographers shooting using H.265 -- such as the video produced by Samsung's NX1 and NX500 --  no more transcoding! You'll  also be able to encode in H.265 format.

HDR

There are some new Lumetri Color tools in Premiere and After Effects for working with HDR video. Basically you can control specular-highlight clipping, and the waveform scope now displays up to 10,000 IRE, an essential increase from the outmoded 100 IRE.

Optical Flow interpolation

GPU-accelerated Optical Flow interpolation will theoretically provide higher quality results when producing slow-motion video from standard frame-rate footage.

Touch optimized

Adobe promises easier trackpad- and touchscreen-based editing with support for multitouch and a more finger-friendly interface. For instance, when you touch the media in the bin a scrubber interface pops up, and when dragging and dropping you get more placement feedback.

Remix to length

Audition gets the ability to target audio to a particular duration with content-aware algorithms that use beat detection and source separation to intelligently rearrange the audio.

Match Loudness

Match Volume has been reworked to the more findable Match Loudness, and Adobe has added a few more standards -- EBU R128, ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770-3, updated from 1770-2.

Text-to-speed for audio placeholders

To figure out how long a voiceover will be or needs to be for a video, you can generate a placeholder voiceover track in different timbres and languages, then replace it with the real track later in the production process.
