Premiere Pro CC 2015.1

Today we are thrilled to be releasing the very latest version of Premiere Pro CC, which is accompanied by brand new versions of After Effects, Adobe Media Encoder, and Audition, alongside the introduction of the much-anticipated Android version of our mobile editing application Premiere Clip. Read about this entire release of Adobe’s video and audio applications here, and learn about all the great new versions of the Creative Cloud applications here.

Creative Cloud members and trial users will be able to download and install these applications today using the Creative Cloud desktop application, or online from http://www.adobe.com/creativecloud.html.

Please note that the 2015.1 version of Premiere Pro will overwrite your 2015.0 installation. Also important to note is that 2015.1 requires a revision to the project format and as such projects saved in 2015.1 are not compatible with prior versions of Premiere Pro CC.

The 2015.1 release of Premiere Pro CC contains all of the amazing new features we previewed at IBC in September, including new ways to edit with powerful touch and gestural support, enhanced support for UltraHD/4K+ workflows, initial support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, amazing new Optical flow time remapping, and the ability to search Adobe Stock directly from the Libraries panel. Adobe Stock now also introduces an extensive catalog of over one million royalty-free video clips, which can be previewed and downloaded directly in Premiere Pro. This release also brings official support for OS X El Capitan.

In addition to the significant number of new and enhanced features, Premiere Pro CC 2015.1 contains extensive bug fixes and performance optimizations, a full list of which is available here.

Alongside the key features described above and in the original blog post, there are multiple other minor improvements, a full list of which appears below.

Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015.1

Overview of What’s New in Adobe Media Encoder CC 2015.1

If you have a Creative Cloud membership, you always have access to the latest version of Adobe Media Encoder. Go to the Creative Cloud site to download applications or to sign up for Creative Cloud.

For more information about Creative Cloud, see this overview video and the Creative Cloud FAQ list.

Expanded UHD Support

Media Encoder will offer Expanded UHD capabilities with the addition of support for XAVC Long GOP, DNxHR, and the new HEVC (H.265) codec, which, at 60% the size of comparable H.264 files, is ideal for delivering pristine 4K content online.

Publish to Facebook

Render and publish content to Facebook in one fell swoop. Easily showcase work, promote projects, or support social media campaigns on a platform where something in the order of 3 billion videos are viewed each day. Along with Facebook support, Destination Publishing also allows you to render and send video to Creative Cloud, Vimeo, and YouTube, giving you a super-fast delivery system for public or password protected video content.

Improved Image Sequence Support

After Effects artists rejoice! You will soon be able to automate rendering for image sequences from After Effects (and other 3D apps) with new Watch Folder support for OpenEXR. Streamline your workflow for frame-based content and offload rendering so that you can continue working in After Effects.

Automatic Loudness Correction

Loudness standards are now critical for the delivery of digital content. All you need to do is check the box in the next release of Media Encoder to apply automatic Loudness correction and deliver content with confidence, knowing that your deliverables meet broadcast standards.

MXF Channelization

Ensure that you meet changing broadcast content requirements with flexible MXF channelization. Export audio within single or multiple audio tracks.

IRT compliance

The IRT compliance in Media Encoder CC ensures that your content conforms to German broadcast standards. IRT (Institut für Rundfunktechnik) publishes the technical guidelines and specifications of Germany’s public broadcasters. There are six MXF Profiles for HD program material as specified by ARD, ZDF, ORF and ARTE. There are presets in Adobe Media Encoder that correspond to each of these profiles.

New effects

Under the Effects tab you will now find SDR Conform and Video Limiter effects to give you even more control over the look of your final output’s color.

And there’s more

The next Media Encoder release also included IMX audio options to create PCM encoded audio (instead of AES3) and 16 channel export, new Time Interpolation settings for improved frame-rate conversion, and the app icon in the dock/taskbar will now show the progress of your encodes.

Notable bug fixes

  • XAVC Intra preset names have been updated.
  • Various improvements to DNxHD
  • Improved speed when smart rendering sequences with many cuts
  • Official support for OS X El Capitan
  • Improvements to MXF OP1a – Match Source (Rewrap) functionality
  • Many workflow and stability improvements

Premiere Bro Goes to Adobe Video World

When I first heard of Adobe Video World, I thought “What is this place and how do I get there?” I envisioned a planet, not unlike Coruscant from Star Wars, where Adobe Jedis convene and discuss disturbances in the force. Come to learn this year’s Adobe Video World conference is the first of its kind, combining the successes of past Premiere Pro World and After Effects World Conferences into one 6-day Adobe galaxy… far far away in San Jose. [Star Wars theme plays.]
