Edit with unparalleled precision, control, and frame-accurate customization - Go beyond traditional keyframing and fine-tune every parameter of your edit—positioning, size, speed, overlays, transitions, effects, and more. Adjust your workspace to your personal editing preferences: set custom tool shortcuts, group and edit clips simultaneously, and explore a streamlined workflow for your most intuitive editing experience.
Smart object tracking
Edit more efficiently and save a lot of time with new Smart Object Tracking, intelligent, shape-aware motion tracking for masks applied on common objects. Now you can easily apply masks to objects in your video–from pets and cars, to drones, and more. There is no need to re-create masks for each frame because smart technology automates the process by recognizing the original masked object and tracks it throughout the selected episode.
Improvise on the fly with Blend Modes and choose how one clip blends with another—from creating a superimposed effect, to blending masked areas, or creating light bleeds or other color and exposure effects. Each Blend Mode uses a different formula to combine the color and brightness values in a selected clip with the values in an underlying clip. Blend Modes boost your creativity and help to bring an artistic touch to your films.
