At IBC 2019, Adobe not only surprised its subscribers by not having the usual IBC update for video products this year. Only one only new feature - Auto Reframe - was announced for an upcoming Premiere Pro CC version.
However, a look at the recently introduced Premiere Elements 2020 now announces far more news, because in this slimmed-down consumer version of Premiere Pro, some new functions are now appearing that could not previously be found in the large version.
Premiere Elements 2020 now includes an integrated Video Denoiser:
In Premiere Pro, on the other hand, you either need to use After Effects or install third-party plug-ins.
New Sensei/KI features have also been added. People and basic motifs in videos can now be automatically recognized and tagged. Or you can have the sky in a still automatically replaced by animated clouds. Also the automatic filling of unwanted page margins with different formats was implemented for easy handling. Stop motion and time-lapse sequences should be easier to create with appropriate tools.
Some of these features will certainly be available in a future version of Premiere Pro. Probably Adobe has already preferred it for the consumer programs, since this program track only receives an update once a year.
Apropos update: You can still get Premiere Elements without subscription for a one-time fixed price of about 100 Euro (and in a bundle with Photoshop Elements for about 150 Euro), but Adobe does not offer very attractive upgrade offers for a change from an earlier version. As a rule, one can only save 10 to 20 Euros compared to a new purchase.
If you want to try out the new features, you can download a 30-day trial version. For reasons we don&t understand, however, the Elements programs are not part of the Creative Cloud, which is why CC-Abo customers unfortunately won&t be able to use these new features until further notice...
