Adobe recently showed off a new feature that will make this issue much easier to deal with by automatically and dynamically cropping a video to match the desired aspect ratio while simultaneously keeping the most important action in the frame. One of the trickiest things about modern video consumption is that it’s watched on many different devices with vastly different aspect ratios, Adobe has effortlessly managed to succeed in all levels. Let’s take a closer look at its newest feature and just what exactly it can do.
Creativity only hands away
The feature, dubbed “Auto Reframe,” is slated to launch in Premiere Pro for Mac later this year. Leveraging Adobe’s Sensei machine learning technology, a user can select the desired aspect ratio, such as a portrait orientation for mobile devices, and the program will automatically follow the important action in the scene and constantly reframe the video specifically to keep the desired parts in the crop.
Attention videographers, this one’s for you
The majority of the time, a videographer shoots in a landscape format, but as more and more video is consumed in portrait orientation on mobile devices, creatives are left with the sometimes tedious task of manually reframing the video as the action moves across the original frame. If Adobe’s new feature can effectively automate this task, it should help videographers save a lot of time, particularly when they’re creating content for social media.
Adjustable to the user’s wish
Users can choose between three motion presets such as slow-motion, default, and faster motion to let the algorithm to know how much movement to expect in the video. The effect will produce motion keyframes that follow the action in your content.
