LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)-Adobe announces that it would be adding new artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to its popular video editing program used by the film and television industries.
With the tools, video editors will be able to perform things like switch a shot’s lighting from daytime to dusk or create background music by simply inputting a few words to instruct the machine.
The tools are based on a brand-new system for producing still images and text called Adobe Firefly that the business unveiled last month.
Applications from Microsoft-backed OpenAI and Stability AI, which enable users to produce creative photos with just a few words of description, are riding a wave of enthusiasm in generative AI that Adobe is riding.
However, Legal concerns cast doubt on whether the output of such AI systems may be utilized in commercial activity after Stability AI was sued by Getty photos, which claimed the startup had improperly exploited Getty’s copyrighted photos in training its AI system.
One of the major providers of software for visual and video artists, Adobe, assures its clients that the output from its Firefly system will be safe for use in a commercial setting.
Apparently, users of the new Adobe video tools will be able to instruct the AI system to read a script and then automatically create a storyboard for the finished product, even suggesting some shots for a rough cut of the story.
Furthermore, the system will have elements for the advertising sector that allow for the generation of various ambient sounds and backdrops for the broadcast of commercials across several geographies using film.
“With a single button, we can generate 1,000 versions of the same video that are localised,” Ivo Manolov, Adobe vice president digital and video audio enterprise offerings, told Reuters in an interview.
