Premiere Pro CC (7.0.1), July 2013

Today, the Adobe Premiere Pro CC (7.0.1) update was released.

You can check for new updates and install them by choosing Help > Updates.

If you’re checking for updates in the Creative Cloud desktop application, and the updates don’t appear, restarting the application can force it to check for recent updates. In general, updates will appear in the Creative Cloud desktop application within 24 hours of being made available.

If you are not able to install the updates automatically by choosing Help > Updates, you can also directly download the update packages from the download page for Mac OS or Windows by choosing the “Adobe Premiere Pro CC Update” under the “7.0.1” heading for your operating system.

One of the best things about Creative Cloud is that we’re able to develop and release features in cadence with the demands of this rapidly growing and evolving industry. The Premiere Pro CC July 2013 update, available now, is the first example of that, and we’re thrilled to be able to give you multiple new editing features so soon after the first CC release – less than a month after we shipped CC. These features are focused in the areas of timeline editing, viewing, navigation and media management, and are direct responses to customer feedback we’ve been closely listening to. The release also includes a number of bug fixes, including a documented critical bug with multicam workflows, and is recommended for all users.

The Premiere Pro team puts great importance on engaging with customers at every level. The new features added to this update are based on the incredible amount of feedback we get from our user base, and are designed around making those small things you do thousands of times a day easier and faster to achieve, keeping you creative, productive, and hopefully, happy. We hope you enjoy them, and we look forward to bringing our Creative Cloud members more great new releases in the future.

Adobe also announced today that Adobe Anywhere for video, which was initially previewed in April 2013 at the National Association of Broadcasters tradeshow (NAB), is now available and shipping. With Adobe Anywhere, the biggest headaches in video production — massive file transfers, duplicate media, and proxy files – are a thing of the past. Adobe Anywhere brings virtual teams of talent together, enabling them to efficiently log, edit, share and finish video productions using standard networks and hardware. Today’s release of Adobe Anywhere supports the latest versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Prelude CC. Support for Adobe After Effects CC is expected later in 2013.

See this page for a list of bugs fixed in this update.

The complete list of newly added features in this Premiere Pro CC update is below:

1. Anywhere for video support
2. Duplicating a title in a sequence creates a new, unique title, which can be independently edited from the original.
3. Lift and Extract can be used when only an In or Out point is set (if only an In is set, Lift/Extract will use the end of the sequence as the Out point; if only an Out is set, the beginning of the sequence will be used for the In point).
4. Copy, Cut, and Clear commands work between In and Out points on targeted tracks when no clips are selected.
5. When a sequence is loaded in the Source Monitor, keyboard shortcuts can be used to navigate to edit points (Up/Down keys by default).
6. Keyboard shortcuts can be used to clear In/Out points on clips in the Project Panel.
7. The Enable Clip command now works as a toggle when multiple clips are selected, such that any disabled clips become enabled and vice versa.
8. The Match Frame command will prioritize a selected clip over a targeted track.
9. The Relink command can now be used on a sequence containing offline media.
10. The Export EDL dialog now contains the option to include or exclude Transitions and the Key Track.
11. The Reveal In Project command now works from the Source Monitor.
12. A preference has been added to select whether or not playback jumps to the beginning of the Timeline or a Clip once the end has been reached.
13. A button has been added to the Timeline Panel to globally Link or Unlink all clips in the sequence.
14. An assignable keyboard shortcut has been added to enable toggling between the Source and Program Monitors.
15. The Reveal In Finder command can now be used on clips in a sequence..
16. A default start timecode value for all new sequences can be set in the Timeline panel.
17. Clips can now be dragged from the Finder or Explorer directly into the Source Monitor.
18. The Match Frame command now works on Nested or Multi-Camera Source Sequences, first matching to the source sequence, then stepping back further to the original master clip used in that source sequence.
19. Offline audio clips are now displayed in red, matching offline video clips.
20. The Source Settings dialog can be accessed by right-clicking on Clips within the Timeline Panel.
21. A preference has been added to allow the Timeline Panel to be automatically focused after an Insert or Overwrite edit is performed.
22. The Auto-Save dialog is suppressed during editing, and auto saves will not occur if no changes have been made to the project.
23. The Tone Settings dialog allows users to set the amplitude and frequency of the Bars and Tone synthetic clip.
24. Closed Captions are displayed on thumbnails in the Captions panel.
25. Options have been added to the Automate To Sequence dialog for Still Clip Duration, giving control over whether still clips use the In/Out range or a specified number of frames per clip (for timelapse workflows).

More information is available in the ‘What’s New’ document.

Our commitment to customers includes those who haven’t yet subscribed to Creative Cloud or who rely on CS6, and we plan to release an update to Premiere Pro CS6 in the coming weeks that will address an AVCHD clip spanning issue.
