Premiere Pro CC (2014.2) Release

Today we’re announcing the release of Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014.2, which contains some important editing enhancements, including support for Arri Open Gate media, the ability to set transitions and still image default durations in seconds or frames and Cineform Export improvements. We’ve also improved scrubbing and shuttling in long GOP MXF files. In addition, QuickTime and Cineform codecs are now available for use as sequence preview file formats on Windows.

    “the ability to set transitions and still image default durations in seconds or frames”

    Yeah!

    Evidently this update did not take care of the Yosemite OS X crashing during premiere pro editing in the Program Monitor. The screen turns black and crashes the system. (Macbook Pro retina, 2013)

      Sorry to hear you’re having this problem. This is not common to your system. Could you please visit the forum and seek further assistance there?

    Does the new update fixes dimming, flashing and flickering with the exported video in MP4? This fix is very critical and it is a real show stopper and revenue impacting.

  • By Steve G - 6:42 AM on December 17, 2014  

    Thanks for the updates and ongoing improvements… but the big issue still remains, the smoothness of the dissolves… that annoying last frame or 2 is still not being incrementally faded properly… there should be one more frame of transparency level there to make it smooth… My clients have complained about the “jumpyness” or “abruptness” of this most basic transition… Is there anything out there to fix this problem?
    Thanks, Steve

      Do you have ‘composite in linear color’ checked in sequence settings? Can you try toggling that?

  • By Rain Perry - 7:30 AM on December 17, 2014  

    Does this update include the global search function I’ve been hearing about?

    • By Al Mooney - 1:38 PM on January 5, 2015  

      We added Search Bins and Timeline Search in the previous release, perhaps you are thinking of that?

  • By Robert Withers - 7:40 AM on December 17, 2014  

    More than 20 bug fixes! Would that Adobe would see the wisdom of doing an update that would just make the software solid and predictable in its current version, instead of adding new features and bugs each round.

    • By Al Mooney - 2:12 PM on January 5, 2015  

      There were actually hundreds of bug fixes – we just posted the more notable ones on the blog. A full list appears on the forum here:

    Great to see shuttling improved, and lots of audio work. And the XD red frame issue.

  • By Michael Ron - 3:20 AM on December 18, 2014  

    What about all the Project Manager bugs?
    I know the previous update completely re-designed the Project Manager tool, and it indeed solve some of the issues (such as GOP files not being trimmed), but definitely not all.
    As long as there are issues that prevent files from being trimmed (which basically defeats the purpose of the tool completely), they still need urgent fixing.. And to be more specific, these are the issues I’m aware of that seem the most problematic:
    * using audio only from an A/V clip (something most editors do on a regular basis)
    * using time-remapping
    * using merged clips

    These are all very common tools and actions that can’t be used right now if you want to be able to export a trimmed-project for backup or for transfer to an AE artist, at the end of the edit process.

    Any ETA on when some of these issues might be fixed?

    • By Al Mooney - 1:44 PM on January 5, 2015  

      Michael, thanks for your comments. We do intend to continue to improve the Consolidate and Transcode feature but sadly I am unable to give you an ETA at this time.

  • By Will Johnson - 5:20 PM on December 18, 2014  

    This update fixed the dynamic link issues I was seeing between Ae and Pr. It on the other hand did not fix round tripping issue I have between Pr and Auditions. grrrr

    I can’t believe that no one else is not having the same problem editing (.MXF) audio in a Pr timeline when sending it to Au and returning to Premiere.

  • By Brian C - 6:13 PM on December 18, 2014  

    What about the ability to have multiple projects open at once?? FCP 7 can do it, why not Premiere? A necessity in today’s editing environment that is sorely lacking in Premiere.

  • By Jamie H - 12:27 PM on December 19, 2014  

    Thank you to you and your team for pushing out this update. I cannot tell you how excited I get when a major release is mostly bug fixes. I sincerely hope that future releases follow this model of a few good features and the rest are fixes. Stability is the single most important thing in my opinion to these programs. There are thousands of people still using FCP7 because it’s stable. They probably know by now that upgrading to Premiere is super smart because they are WAAAAY behind the feature curve, but I never blame them because I know how it is to feel that with everything that’s unpredictable about editing, the nicest thing to have is a predictable and stable version of the software. It might not be as sexy as a laundry list of new features. But I’ll be if you took a poll of all your users, 90% would take stability over features.

    So thank you for this release. Yes, there are issues that still remain but I applaud the direction this release took and hope the next ones do the same.

  • By Geoff C. Bassett - 5:13 AM on December 21, 2014  

    Simple but amazing update. Default transition duration and the ability to use Cineform as a preview file format are fantastic additions as well as the new export options! Thank you!

  • By Troy S - 1:25 PM on December 21, 2014  

    I am very excited for the fix on the multi-cam stopping the playback. I can’t tell you how much work I lost because it wouldn’t stop and I had to kill it and start over. THANK YOU!

  • By Pierre Louis Beranek - 3:41 AM on December 24, 2014  

    Hi Adobe team,
    Just want to say I’m really glad too that you’ve decided to put more attention on squashing bugs rather than releasing new features!

    One bug I’m really hoping to see fixed soon is the one that was introduced in CC2014 whereby the active/forward tab switches from the Source to the Program monitor when sending media from to Source monitor to the Timeline via keyboard shortcut.

    Regarding the new 8.1 workflow for seeing and modifying global clip effects… Well done! It’s FANTASTIC!
    The fact that changing the color of one clip segment in the Timeline changes the color of all segments of the master clip might be useful for some but it makes my workflow of visually identifying Warp Stabilized clips through color coding impossible. Now, more than ever, we need a visual cue to know at a glance which clips have been Warp Stabilized for later review of the effect after it finishes analyzing. Hope to see this in the next release!

    One last thing, I don’t mind the interface change from yellow to blue, but unfortunately, the one thing that actually needs a color change didn’t… A title’s bounding box in the Titler. Creating titles over an all white background isn’t at all uncommon, so why have a bounding box colour that completely disappears any time an editor makes a title over a white background? Please change the bounding box color to blue (or any other color). This should be a super easy fix!

    Thanks for listening and keep up the great work!
