In this week’s edition of AI&YOU, we are covering the AI Video Wars through our blogs:

AI Video Wars: Adobe is Coming for OpenAI’s Sora – AI&YOU #51

Adobe's generative AI

New Generative AI Suite in Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe’s development of an AI model within the Adobe Creative Cloud is set to revolutionize video editing by integrating generative AI video tools in Premiere Pro, addressing some of the most common challenges faced by professional video editors. These tools are seamlessly integrated into core Premiere Pro workflows, streamlining video editing and empowering creative professionals by solving real problems, such as reducing the tedium of workflow, enhancing efficiency, and providing more creative control. These AI-powered features are designed to simplify and accelerate the editing process, allowing creators to focus on their artistic vision while the software handles time-consuming tasks.

1. Generative Extend

One of the most notable additions to Premiere Pro is the Generative Extend tool, which enables editors to seamlessly add frames to clips, making them longer and easier to fine-tune edits and transitions. This feature solves a common pain point for video editors who often need to create extra media for precise editing.

By using AI to generate additional frames, Generative Extend saves editors valuable time and effort, streamlining the editing process and allowing them to achieve the perfect timing and flow in their videos.

2. Object Addition & Removal

Another game-changing feature is the Object Addition & Removal tool, which allows editors and marketing professionals to select, track, and replace objects within a video. This AI-powered tool simplifies the process of enhancing the visual appeal of a video by manipulating objects in the scene.

Editors can use this feature to change an actor’s wardrobe, remove unwanted items, or add set dressings like paintings or photorealistic flowers, all with just a few clicks. The Object Addition & Removal tool opens up new possibilities for creative expression and enables editors to craft visually stunning videos with ease.

3. Text-to-Video

Adobe’s Text-to-Video feature harnesses the power of generative AI to generate video and create entirely new footage directly within Premiere Pro. By simply typing text prompts or uploading reference images, editors can generate visuals that can be used for ideation, storyboarding, or as B-roll to supplement live-action footage. This innovative approach allows for object addition, object removal, generative extend, and the application of Content Credentials to identify AI models used for generating the clips, in collaboration with third-party vendors like OpenAI.

This tool will change the way editors and marketers approach video creation, enabling them to quickly generate video content from scratch using AI, aligning with their creative vision without the need for extensive filming or stock footage searches.

Integration of Third-Party AI Models

Adobe is not only developing its own generative AI tools but also integrating third-party AI models from leading companies such as OpenAI, Pika Labs, and Runway directly into Premiere Pro.

Early explorations show how these third-party AI models could be used in conjunction with Premiere Pro’s features. For example, OpenAI and Runway’s video generation models could help create B-roll footage, while Pika Labs‘ model could add extra seconds to a shot, ensuring smooth transitions or providing additional visual interest.

The seamless integration of third-party AI models within Premiere Pro will provide a comprehensive and user-friendly video editing experience. By allowing users to access these powerful AI tools directly within the software they use every day, Adobe streamlines workflows and boosts productivity. This integration is designed to enhance the video editors experience by streamlining editing and generating B-roll, addressing the high-speed pace of video production and leveraging video generation models to benefit professional video editors.

As Adobe continues to explore partnerships with leading AI companies and integrate their models into Premiere Pro, users can expect an ever-expanding set of tools at their disposal, positioning Adobe as a frontrunner in the video editing software market.

Responsible AI Integration in Video Editing

Adobe remains committed to responsible innovation as it develops and integrates AI technologies into its applications. With extensive experience in AI development, Adobe ensures that the integration of third-party AI models adheres to its rigorous safety standards.

To maintain transparency and build trust, Adobe pledges to attach Content Credentials to assets produced within its applications. These “nutrition labels” for online content allow users to see how the content was created and which AI models were used, promoting transparency and accountability in AI-generated media.

As a founding member of the Content Authenticity Initiative, Adobe collaborates with partners to establish industry standards for the responsible use of AI in content creation, ensuring the ethical development and deployment of AI technologies.

AI-Powered Audio Workflows in Premiere Pro

Adobe will also introduce AI-powered audio workflows in Premiere Pro, set for release in May. These features provide editors with precise control over sound quality, making audio editing faster and more intuitive.

Key features include:

  1. Interactive fade handles for creating custom audio transitions with ease.

  2. AI-based audio category tagging system for automatic labeling of dialogue, music, sound effects, or ambience.

  3. Effect badges for easy identification and adjustment of clips with applied effects.

  4. Redesigned waveforms in the timeline for improved readability and visual feedback.

These AI-powered audio workflows streamline the editing process, ensure quick and efficient adjustments, and enhance the overall audio experience of videos edited in Premiere Pro.

Adobe’s AI Video Soars Where OpenAI’s Sora Struggles: Copyright Material

Adobe is directly sourcing AI training data from content creators to develop its text-to-video AI model. The company offers compensation for video clips depicting everyday human interactions, aiming to build a diverse and comprehensive dataset for training its AI.

To ensure legal and ethical soundness, Adobe meticulously curates the content it purchases, avoiding copyrighted material, nudity, and offensive content. This sets Adobe apart from competitors like OpenAI, which faced scrutiny over using YouTube videos without permission. Adobe’s approach involves offering content creators $120 per set of video clips, with potential for higher payouts based on quality and relevance.

Adobe’s approach of building its AI video model through legally acquired and compensated training data positions the company favorably in terms of innovation and public trust.

By purchasing videos from content creators and focusing on everyday human interactions, Adobe ensures its AI model is trained on a diverse and representative dataset, avoiding legal pitfalls and demonstrating commitment to collaborating with the creative community.
