    SAN DIEGO, CA, December 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Following two significant Adobe Premiere Pro CC enhancements, NewBlue, Inc. today announced full compatibility of its entire line of 68 NewBlueFX video transitions with the newest Adobe release.

Editors who update to the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud receive two powerful new features in Adobe Premiere Pro CC that dramatically increase the speed and ease of editing with video transitions: fast drag and drop insertion and native editing in the effects tab and the ability to run transitions directly in the GPU, via OpenCL or CUDA, for real-time performance. Through technical collaboration with Adobe, the NewBlueFX team delivered transitions that fully leverage these powerful new features.
