      Hi Mariano,

    Has anything changed with media managing (consolidating) SD files that contain closed captioning?
    Are we able to import files with captioning, edit them, take advantage of the tool set available for searching the captioning for words and phrases, and still project manage them (consolidate)?
    CC 2014 isn’t able to consolidate captioned files (SD) and this is a BIG problem for my group.

    • By Meagan Keane - 12:27 PM on June 18, 2015  

      The feature set for closed captioning has not seen major changes in CC2015, but a large number of bugs have been fixed.

    Has the content analysis feature been permanently removed, or will it be re-enabled in a later version? While it was far from perfect, it was still quite helpful with our workflow.

    I updated to Premiere Pro CC 2015 (from 2014) today. When I get into my project, it will not let me play the Timeline. The spacebar and the play button do not even work. Essentially, I can’t do anything. I have worked with Premiere Pro for a long time and have never had anything like this occur. Everything else is fine (all the keyboard shortcuts, etc)….so it is not the keyboard. I’ve troubleshooted this for the past 24 hours and am on a tight deadline, but I cannot get my media to play!

    Also, is there a way that I can download CC 2014 again so I can open my project and work on it? I am not being offered that option, just the CS6 version.

    • By Mark McKinney - 8:54 AM on June 21, 2015  

      Any help with this would be much appreciated. I am a professional editor and absolutely love Premiere Pro, but this update has really thrown me for a loop!

      Hi Mark,

      I’m really sorry you’re running into problems but the best way for you to get support is not through blog comments – you can find great support through our Premiere Pro forums here:

    Use to be able to adjust .r3d source from the timeline in Premiere CC 2014. Where is this function in the new Premiere cc 2015?

    • By Al Mooney - 10:19 AM on July 28, 2015  

      Hi Michael, the Source Settings are now intrinsic Master Clip Effects. The keyboard shortcut for legacy Source Settings is now back in 9.0.1.


  • By Jonas - 6:07 AM on June 24, 2015  

    This is really great news! However; has anyone experienced any troubles with the OpenCL and external monitor (full screen playback) like in the 2014 version? (MacBook pro 15″ mid 2014). I could just update and test myself, but I’d rather not have two versions installed on my machine.

    Just began using Premiere Pro CC 2015 after upgrading a few days ago. Using the Audio track Mixer to mix two tracks in a single camera project. After about seven or eight minutes I stopped and looked at the timeline and noticed that after four minutes, my adjustments were no longer there…and the track was a straight line. (in other words…no keyframes where I either raised or lowered a track volume level.) I tried the same thing three times and got the same response. I then started another project with different footage from a different drive and the same thing happened after only a few minutes. Is this a bug and should I return to CC 2014? Answer please. Thank you.

      Hi – this should be fixed in the newest update -please let us know if you are still having issues.
