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

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.

  • Tabbed panel groups can be stacked vertically in a column for Lightroom-style one-click access.
  • The Start screen has been redesigned.
  • Certain timeline actions such as snapping will provide haptic feedback on supported Mac trackpads.
  • Thumbnails in the Project Panel can show the effect of applied Master Clip Effects and Source Settings.
  • A keyboard shortcut (Command/Control-backslash) has been added to hide the application title bar.
  • New lens distortion removal presets have been added for GoPro HERO4, Vision 3, and Inspire 1 cameras.
  • Sound timecode and roll can be displayed in the sequence overlays.
  • Multi-Camera angles can be arranged across multiple pages.
  • The Video Limiter effect can be included in an export preset to keep video levels safe.
  • A new effect, SDR Conform, has been added for tone-mapping HDR content.
  • A preference has been added to shift clips that overlap the trim point during ripple trimming.
  • Sequence timecode can be shown in the marker panel.
  • Grid lines have been added to the Curves in the Lumetri panel.
  • Indic languages are supported in the Titler.
  • Multiple improvements to Merged Clips have been added.
  • The Transform effect has been GPU accelerated.

    Hm. This update doesn’t show up in my Creative Cloud.. And downloading from the website just gives me version 2015.0

    • By Al Mooney - 12:55 PM on December 2, 2015  

      This does sometimes happen – try restarting the CC desktop app and you should be good.


  • By Anvid Monjo - 2:54 AM on December 1, 2015  

    Does this one include previous 2015.0.1 and 2015.0.2 updates or it is needed to install them first and apply 2015.1 after?

    • By Al Mooney - 12:55 PM on December 2, 2015  

      You can just go straight to 2015.1.

    Since this update Premiere will no longer open. Every time I try and open the program it automatically crashes (no splash screen). I have tried absolutely everything, uninstalling/reinstalling Premiere, updating graphics drivers, updating windows, deleting preview files and auto save files, error checking HDD… nothing works.

    I have checked the Windows event viewer and have found the following errors:

    Windows cannot access the file for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015.1 because of this error.
    Program: Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015.1 File:
    The error value is listed in the Additional Data section. User Action 1. Open the file again. This situation might be a temporary problem that corrects itself when the program runs again. 2. If the file still cannot be accessed and – It is on the network, your network administrator should verify that there is not a problem with the network and that the server can be contacted. – It is on a removable disk, for example, a floppy disk or CD-ROM, verify that the disk is fully inserted into the computer. 3. Check and repair the file system by running CHKDSK. To run CHKDSK, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F, and then press ENTER. 4. If the problem persists, restore the file from a backup copy. 5. Determine whether other files on the same disk can be opened. If not, the disk might be damaged. If it is a hard disk, contact your administrator or computer hardware vendor for further assistance.
    Additional Data Error value: 00000000 Disk type: 0

    Please help resolve this issue, thank you.

    • By Al Mooney - 12:54 PM on December 2, 2015  

      We are aware of some issues with Phenom processors currently and are investigating. Rolling back to 9.0.2 is the best workaround we have right now. Sorry for the trouble.


      • By Chelsea - 10:02 AM on December 3, 2015  

        Same issue for me. how do I roll back my version?

        • By Al Mooney - 12:37 PM on December 3, 2015  

          It’s available from the Creative Cloud desktop app. Scroll down and there’s a link under ‘Find additional apps’ called ‘previous versions’.


  • By David - 9:41 PM on December 1, 2015  

    How can I re-install Premiere Pro CC 2015 v.8?

    • By Al Mooney - 12:53 PM on December 2, 2015

  • By Jacek R - 1:58 PM on December 2, 2015

    I work alternately on both computers , it’s very difficult for me to work . I have to go back to version 2015 and the time when You fix it.

    • By Al Mooney - 6:11 PM on December 2, 2015  

      Please just try relaunching the Creative Cloud application. The updates are fully available.


  • By Victor - 5:02 PM on December 2, 2015  

    Does this update address the issues people have been having with OpenCL rendering?

    • By Al Mooney - 6:09 PM on December 2, 2015  

      That issue should be fixed in El Capitan 10.11.1 – please update to that (along with updating to Premiere Pro CC 2015.1) and hopefully the issue will have gone.


  • By Jonathan - 3:14 AM on December 3, 2015  

    The updates are still not showing up for me on my CC app. I’m in the UK with an enterprise subscription. Don’t know if that’s got anything to do with it. Illustrator update was available yesterday, nothing else yet. Guess I just have to be patient.

    • By Al Mooney - 12:37 PM on December 3, 2015  

      You’ll need to talk to your system administrator Jonathan – they manage enterprise software deployments, not Adobe directly. Sorry and hope you get to upgrade soon!


  • By Mario - 5:03 AM on December 7, 2015  

    I want know if this update work correct with El Capitan and if I can update my OS.

    • By Al Mooney - 1:30 PM on December 8, 2015  

      Yes Mario, El Capitan is supported with this release.
