Some of the new graphics software technologies coming out of Adobe sound like they will add to the palette of creative professionals in the video and imaging sector.

Speaking with Beet.TV in this video interview, Adobe product management senior director Bill Roberts says the recently-announced “Project Candy” allows users to capture a color set using their smartphone camera for use in desktop video editing.

“Quite often, you want to capture the mood of a moment,” Roberts says. “If you’re at the beach at sunset, and you’ve got this glorious orange sky… that would be a great way to warm up a video interview.

With new Project Candy, I’m able to capture the colour and light, select the elements of the light that I want to exchange and save it. That look is immediately available to me when I jump in to Premier, After Effects of Premier Clip. The cloud should be something that’s seamless that makes your life better.

Additionally, Adobe Premier Pro CC introduces a new transition, Morph Cut, which lets editors blend moves between jump cuts, effectively eliminating the disparity between separate scenes.

We interviewed Roberts at the NAB Show. Beet.TV’s coverage of the show was sponsored by Akamai.  Please find more coverage from Las Vegas here.
