As part of Steam’s latest update to its platform, an integrated Notes app and a redesigned in-game overlay tool have been added. The new feature allows gamers to write thoughts and tasks about the game they’re playing and runs as an overlay, accessible across any logged-in PC and when playing games offline.

When overlaid on a game, pinned to-do lists can be adjusted for opacity, and guides, discussions, and other content can be clipped to the screen.

Further updates from Steam include a redesigned toolbar and overview. The new toolbar now features everything from chat to guides and is fully customizable. The game overview feature will also show a player’s achievement progress, gameplay stats of friends, and news about the current title.

Notifications have also received an upgrade, and there’s an in-game option for taking screenshots, which are sortable by the most recent capture, instead of per game.

The new features are currently only available through the Steam Client Beta. If you’ve never tried a Beta version before, the process is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is head to the settings (preferences if you’re a Mac user), click the Beta Participation change button in the Accounts tab, and select Steam Beta Update. Once you restart the Steam app, the Beta features will be visible.

Valve has pointed out that much development time has gone towards updating and improving code sharing between the Steam Desktop Client, the Deck, and Big Picture mode. The company notes that the upgrades should allow new features to roll out faster across different platforms.

Adobe Teases New AI Editing Tools And Updates In Premiere Pro

The video editing app will be enhanced with a generative extend tool, text-to-video, improved timeline waveforms, and more.



adobe teases new ai editing tools and updates in premiere pro

After launching the generative AI model Firefly last year, Adobe is now showcasing how the technology will be used in upcoming versions of the editing app Premiere Pro. In an early sneak peek, the company demonstrated several new features, including Object Addition and Removal, Generative Extend, and Text to Video.

The first new feature, Generative Extend, targets a common video editing problem by using AI to “Seamlessly add frames to make clips longer, so it’s easier to perfectly time edits and add smooth transitions”.

Meanwhile, Premiere Pro’s Object Addition & Removal tool will leverage Firefly’s generative AI to “Simply select and track objects, then replace them. Remove unwanted items, change an actor’s wardrobe or quickly add set dressings such as a painting or photorealistic flowers on a desk,” Adobe states.

Adobe also showcased another new feature that can automatically generate new film clips using a text prompt. To use the content creation tool, editors can “Simply type text into a prompt or upload reference images. These clips can be used to ideate and create storyboards, or to create B-roll for augmenting live action footage,” Adobe explained. The company seems to be commercializing this particular feature extremely quickly, considering generative AI video only appeared a few months ago.

The new additions to Premiere Pro will be added later this year, but Adobe is also introducing smaller improvements to the editing app in May. The changes include interactive fade handles to enable easier transitions, an Essential Sound badge that uses AI to “automatically tag audio clips as dialogue, music, sound effects or ambience, and add a new icon so editors get one-click, instant access to the right controls for the job”, along with effect badges and a new look for waveforms in the timeline.
