🤯 Adobe Premiere Pro “Generative Fill” is Coming + Partnerships with OpenAI, Runway, and Pika

Generating b-roll with AI

Want to see your mind blown? This week, Adobe teased generative AI video tools that will be coming to Adobe Premiere Pro soon. This feature went viral last year when it was introduced in Adobe Photoshop.

This upcoming AI model will enable users to:

  • 📹️ Generate videos (e.g., b-roll).

  • Add new objects to a scene.

  • ✂️ Remove objects from a scene.

  • 📏 Extend video clip lengths.

And more that we don’t know yet…

Unlike previous announcements, Adobe has not set a release date for these new video generation tools, indicating only that they will be available sometime this year.

Just look at these crazy examples 👇️ 

Removing objects with AI

Adding objects with text prompts

Swapping objects

Extending existing videos

The new update will come with collaborations with third-party AI providers such as Runway, Pika Labs, and OpenAI's ‘Sora’, though these partnerships are still in the exploratory phase.

You’ll be able to choose from specific AI models from one of the collaborators based on your needs.

You’ll later be able to view “Content Credentials,” which will show which AI model produced the AI-generated content.

🔠 Figma Releases Typography and Gradient Variables, “Code Connect” for Developers

On Tuesday, Figma introduced several new features at its Framework 2024 event, designed to foster greater adoption of design systems by bridging the gap between design and code.

Typography and Gradient Variables

Variables allow designers to set and use specific styles that can be consistently applied across all their projects. This was previously possible, but not with typography (text) and gradients.

Code Connect for Developers

This new feature lets developers copy the code they need for design elements directly from Figma, saving time and reducing errors
