This new version of creative cloud will include Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator, Audition, and Premiere Rush.
The precision controls on Adobe applications are designed to provide creative envrionments for editors and video content creators.
In this spirit, the new version of creative cloud will include Character Animator 2.0, which introduces new scene cameras to your animations. Users will gain access to added dialog dynamics and greater ability to bring rhythm to narrative.

Memory Card Failure Tips
So these days I think I would be pretty hard pressed trying to find someone that visits this site that is recording their videos to anything other than memory cards.

The Plugable company targets the device for film producers and videographers. It uses the following key words to describe it: small, portable, and extremely fast. Yes, it is bus-powered. Ahead you’ll find the press release and images, while I prepare a review.
From the press release:
Redmond, Washington. – November 12, 2019 – Plugable, the leading developer of USB, Thunderbolt, Bluetooth and power-related devices, launches the Plugable Thunderbolt 3 NVMe External SSD, a powerful solid state drive that offers creators up to 1 TB or 2 TB of extra storage and rapid speeds of up to 2800 MB/second read and 1800 MB/second write, all without the need for an external power connection. With a 1 TB model available for US$299 and a 2TB model available for US$499, the Plugable drive is among the fastest portable external SSDs you can buy today.
The Plugable drive is perfect for creators like film producers and videographers who require fast scratch storage, regularly conduct large file transfers of formats like 4K, and need maximum data transfer speeds to keep their projects moving forward. These high capacity drives give you more space for more footage. The Plugable 1TB drive is capable of storing 155 minutes of ProRes 422 HQ 4K video or 175 minutes of DnXHR HQ 4K video.
Through the combined power of Thunderbolt 3 and NVMe technologies, the Plugable drive surpasses the limitations of traditional SATA III SSDs and interfaces directly with CPUs via PCI Express, resulting in rapid performance, lower latency and reduced CPU usage. With up to 4x faster transfer speeds than SATA, the Plugable drive is designed to maximize the throughput for the SSD making editing quick and easy.
The Plugable drive is a highly efficient plug-and-play solution, pre-formatted with exFAT right out of the box to make it compatible and interchangeable with any Thunderbolt 3-enabled Mac or Windows system. Videographers can import media directly into Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere or any of their favorite editing applications seamlessly.
The Plugable drive is also designed for optimal portability, weighing in at 6.1oz (or 173g) and having a surface area slightly larger than a smartphone. Encased in anodized aluminum, the full metal body is designed to keep the SSD cool while also protecting your data. The Plugable drive comes with a plush velvet carrying case so that you can go from shoot to shoot without worry of scratch or damage.
