“For artists and brands alike, trends are a critical tool. They’re about more than what people are enjoying or fascinated by at the moment. They’re a look at where we are as a culture, and as a world, so you can really understand what makes an image resonate.” – Brenda Milis, principal of Creative Services and Visual Trends at Adobe.
The amazing growth of Video items presents a significant time for authors and content creators alike, to challenge themselves and explore visual spaces and opportunities in 2018.
With creative tools helping to innovate and empower various forms of expression, authors are becoming ‘hybrids’ or as Photographer and Adobe Creative Resident Aundre Larrow calls ‘hybrid creatives’ driven by the need for more engaging video and supported by the social media platforms that allow for easy accessibility of video content.
Larrow believes the rise in hybrid creatives are those that ‘execute better than they market themselves’ people that can create both fun and high-quality motion content using modern styles like animated titles, bold colors and graphics, as well as ‘standard’ business branding content. We are seeing this more and more through video content, through After Effects, Motion Graphics and Premiere Pro templates.
After Effects templates have helped creatives to build and edit their creative work, however, it has also presented challenges when using it alongside other editing programs. More recently, Motion Graphics Templates were introduced to allow creatives to edit a graphic template solely within Premiere Pro – an editing application built for modern video production.
Premiere Pro can easily assemble and edit a video, add audio and video effects – creating titles, manipulating colours and exporting content in any format, making it very use for creatives to include motion graphics in projects. Google trends show that searches for Premiere Pro have increased by 138%, in comparison to searches for After Effects from the past 12 months.
Within our marketplace, Premiere Pro is making up 20% of the top weekly best sellers, demand is high from customers and we’re really excited to see what happens next. We recently launched a new category for Premiere Pro Templates on Elements – Premiere Pro will be part of the Elements subscription offering and selected authors have access to opt-in items.
Many businesses and industries, including Videographers and Editors, rely on Premiere Pro to help them create engaging and well-presented content that is resolution independent and stays up to date with evolving styles.
