At IBC 2019, Adobe plans to demonstrate Auto Reframe, a new time-saving feature coming later this year to Premiere Pro. Auto Reframe intelligently reframes and reformats content for different aspect ratios, from square to vertical to cinematic 16:9 versions. It can be applied as a Transform effect to individual clips, or to whole sequences under the menu. First previewed as Project Smooth Operator at Adobe MAX 2018, Auto Reframe (like Content-Aware Fill for After Effects) is an Adobe Sensei technology that uses AI and machine learning to accelerate manual production tasks, while maintaining creative control with keyframes.
