Adobe MAX: Technology Sneak Peeks Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

6 November 2019

At Adobe Max today, comedian John Mulaney and Adobe evangelist Paul Trani hosted Sneaks, the research and development showcase that demos early-stage, cutting-edge technology being developed in-house by Adobe employees. There's no guarantee these innovations will make it into shipping products but it's always nice to see what the wizards are dreaming up.

Sneak Peeks. John Mulaney (l) and Paul Trani reveal all.

Adobe provided the following roster of today's sneak peeks, many of which are powered by Adobe Sensei:


When taking group photos, people usually take turns as the photographer, so one person is always missing from the photo. Powered by Adobe Sensei, Project All In eliminates the need for a tripod and a timer by automatically identifying and adding missing people so that no one gets left out.


Quickly solve the challenge of relighting outdoor photos and videos with Project Light Right. Relighting outdoor videos and images has long remained beyond the reach of the casual photographer, especially when it comes to large-scale outdoor scenes, where controlling the lighting is close to impossible. Light Right quickly solves the challenge with 3D scene geometry. Powered by Adobe Sensei.

Facial Recognition

Automatically detect facial features and adjust them to enhance a portrait or add a creative character to a fun shot. Project About Face also allows you to identify and undo these adjustments to revert back to the original image. Powered by Adobe Sensei.

Video from Stills

From still to in-motion, Project Sweet Talk creates dynamic videos from static images. The possibilities are endless: animate drawings from centuries ago, random sketches, 2D cartoon characters, Japanese mangas, stylized caricatures and casual photos. Powered by Adobe Sensei.

Video Tracking

The ability to track a person is critical for editors as they produce videos, but it's not easy. Project Go Figure makes it possible to track using skeletons and contours, enabling smooth and robust tracking even in a crowded scene. Powered by Adobe Sensei.

Video with AR

Creating an AR application today requires heavy technical expertise. Project Pronto combines the benefits of both video prototyping and AR authoring into a cohesive system that allows non-technical designers to rapidly express AR design ideas.


Whether used as an inspirational tool for designers or to bring sketches to life, Project Image Tango mixes two assets to create a new image that has the detailed shape of one and the intricate texture of the other. Powered by Adobe Sensei.

Animated Text

In today's digital world, animated texts are used everywhere. While popular, the process of converting text to animated keyframes is tedious and tiring. Project Fantastic Fonts provides predefined effects so that a previously exhausting task is now quick and painless.


Content creators are constantly looking for specific sounds that occur multiple times in audio recordings. Wouldn't it be great if you could simply select a couple of target sound examples and have a machine find the rest? Boom. Powered by Adobe Sensei.


Enhances amateur audio recordings and turns them into professional-sounding recordings with the click of a button. The technology helps with enhancements such as denoising, dereverbing, equalization and environment matching so that you can take your audio to the next level. Powered by Adobe Sensei.


A plug-in that allows people to enrich their artwork by "painting with light" in Adobe Illustrator. The integration of a simple 2D path tracers might just open up a whole new area of 2D illustrations.
