Stock Audio now available in Premiere Pro
Adobe Stock is launching an entirely new content category, audio, making music tracks available for license. And you can now search, download, and license royalty-free audio soundtracks from Adobe Stock via the Essential Sound panel in Premiere Pro.

Apple After burner Support for macOS
You can now use the Apple Afterburner card with Premiere Pro to decode ProRes 422 and ProRes 4444 media (decoding in hardware instead of software).

Afterburner support requires the Metal Renderer. Projects that use other renderers decode ProRes content in software and will not use the Afterburner hardware. To disable Afterburner support, deselect the Enable hardware accelerated decoding (requires restart) preference in Preferences > Media. When that preference is disabled, all decoding is performed in software, turning off Afterburner support.

New File Format support in Premiere Pro

Enhanced bitrate controls for JPEG 2000 MXF export
Import of Canon EOS R5 footage (upon camera release)
Import of Canon EOS-1D X Mark III footage
Import of RED Komodo footage

What’s new Premiere Pro 14.2 (May 2020)

ProRes RAW support
Premiere Pro now offers a comprehensive, cross-platform (Windows and macOS) solution for Apple ProRes workflows, from camera media through to delivery.

For more information, see ProRes RAW Support in Adobe Video Applications.

Graphics improvements

Premiere Pro now offers better support for Bezier curves using the Pen tool and a great new option for filtering effects so you can show only attributes that have keyframes or adjusted parameters. This makes make your work more efficient when creating graphics and titling in Premiere Pro with the tools in the Essential Graphics panel.

Link: How to create Bezier curves using the Pen tool

Auto Reframe (now faster)

Auto Reframe now analyzes video sequences up to four times as fast (depending on type of footage and computer hardware). Powered by Adobe Sensei machine learning technology, Auto Reframe automatically reformats and repositions video within different aspect ratios, such as square and vertical video, so you can deliver video optimized for different viewing platform. Auto Reframe accelerates workflows, such as the creation of Quibi content, which requires paired horizontal and vertical files for their mobile viewing platform.

You can now copy and edit keyframes while editing clips with the Auto Reframe effect. This feature allows you to edit them separately from other motion keyframes. Link: Auto Reframe workflow

Hardware-accelerated H.264 and HEVC encoding

With new support for NVIDIA and AMD GPUs on Windows, hardware encoding for H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) is now available across all platforms. This means consistently faster exports for these widely used formats. 

Fixed issues in Premiere Pro version 14.2

  • Pressing Opt-click fails to expand all folder contents
  • Duplicate name of a folder can disappear
  • Open Caption center alignment is not being respected
  • Exported Final Cut Pro XML does not correctly reflect changes made to audio channel mapping

What’s new Premiere Pro 14.1 (April 2020)

Project locking
A Productions feature

When working within a Production in Premiere Pro, you can lock a project when editing to prevent unwanted conflicts. Locked projects are available for use in a read-only state for other users, allowing editors to review each other’s work and even copy pieces out of locked projects without needing to request the project owner to release the project.
For more information, see Change project lock status.

Cross-project referencing in a Production
A clip in one project can be reused throughout every other project in the production. This reduces the need for duplicate master clips. Avoiding duplicate master clips has multiple benefits:

You only need to manage master clip properties once.
Individual project file sizes remain small, which helps keep project load and save times fast.
For more information, see How clips work across projects in a production.

Shared project settings in Productions

Project settings include important settings such as scratch disk, GPU renderer, and capture settings. A benefit of having project settings synchronized is shared preview render files. When a sequence is rendered by any editor on the team it automatically shows as rendered for all other editors who open that project ensuring smooth playback for everyone and time savings for the team.

Fixed issues in Premiere Pro version 14.1

  • Blank name project in blank name folder is duplicated in trash folder after being deleted.
  • VR preview issue for 2048X2048 found in HMD (Oculus Rift) under H.264 format.
  • Program monitor turns red on changing the color space of MPEG file from interpret footage window.
  • Source and Program monitors can appear pixelated in Metal.
  • “Add Property to Essential Graphics” right-click Context Menu Command was not working.
  • Premiere Pro does not respond when removing all video attributes of a graphic with a Clip Layer.
  • Keyframes added to motion graphics that are applied to a different frame rate sequence are at the wrong position.
  • Label color changes when adding video to graphics.
  • Create new caption or open project with existing captions sometimes fails to show captions.
  • Smart rendering MXF (XDCAM HD422) may result in corrupt frames.
  • Tearing may occur in some exported files.
  • Unable to import some H.264 clips created with older versions of macOS Mojave screen recording.
  • Importing H.264 clips created with Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) screen recording takes a long time.

Improved : Clearing Cache Method Premiere Pro v14

As with any new version of Premiere Pro that comes out and opening previous projects – I highly recommend clearing your media cache before you open your current projects. This includes even small updates ie: 14.0>14.01. Clearing the cache files will force Premiere Pro to rebuild cache and pek files for the new version.

There are specific steps to follow to do this correctly starting with Premiere Pro v14. and higher.
1. Launch Premiere (DO NOT open any projects)
2. Open Preferences >Media Cache
3. Click Remove Media Cache Files (Delete)
4. You will now see Delete all Media Cache from system as an available option

Why do I suggest this?
As we improve performance with various codecs (ie: ProsRes & H264/65 are now much faster than 13.x) the “math” can change on how we decode these codecs which can cause issues when cache files are based on older decode “math” . Issues might be bad playback or glitchy files . Taking this proactive step can save you time in the long run.

What’s new for Premiere Pro 2020 v14.0

What’s new Video:  (click on Splash Screen above)

The biggest new feature for Premiere Pro v14.0 is Auto Reframe Powered by Adobe Sensei, Auto Reframe applies intelligent reframing to your footage, keeping the action inside the frame for different aspect ratios such as square, vertical, and 16:9 video. This is quickly becoming the ”goto” feature for creating multiple size/aspect renditions of your video for various video platforms.

Graphics and Text enhancements – The Essential Graphics panel now has a number of text and graphics enhancements to make your titling and graphic workflows smoother. Renaming shape layers, Text underlining, Multi-line text fields, NEW Drop Down Menu option (Mogrts created in After Effects) and new keyboard shortcuts for working with layers, including reordering layers, adding text, and selecting layers. For example, you can now use familiar Ctrl + Shift or Cmd + Shift with square brackets to send layers to the back or bring them to the front.

Audio Enhancements – Mix multi-channel audio more efficiently with increased performance for multi-channel projects. Improved Loudness Radar .You can now add up to 15 decibels of gain to audio clips. This provides more headroom for your audio, without requiring additional amplification effects and matches the gain feature in Adobe Audition. (Previously, the limit for adding audio gain was 6 decibels)

What’s New for Premiere Pro Spring 2019 v13.1

What’s New for Premiere Pro Spring 2019 v13.1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video demo of New features :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KHpV5BebXI&t=139s

 

 

 

The engineering work on this version (13.1) has been mainly centered around performance and OS stability with a few features I gear more towards “editing efficiencies”.  No question that many software vendors have had their share of challenges when it comes to driver updates and deprecating older 32bit code in order to give the end user the most benefit from newer iNtel , Nvidia, & AMD chipsets.  I think many of us can agree that the major change with discontinuing legacy Quicktime 32-bit codecs caught many people off guard.

 

GPU and chipset drivers continue to be the #1 issue I see when helping people troubleshoot along with legacy plug-ins that many people forget are there. These are 2 of the main things you need to remember to update before you apply any update to Premiere Pro or AfterEffects. Plugins and drivers will go out of date at some point you it’s easy to get in “bad state”.

 

In this release, you’ll see our first attempt to call out driver issues with a warning to update them. You wil be promted at [First Launch] and then you can check via the help menu after that. We are also looking at more ways to flag other incompatibilities or known issues. I would agree that Plug-ins would be a great thing to flag and we are looking into how to coordinate – not as easy as you might think as these vendors are not required to inform us of their changes.  But, I would agree we need to work together and figure it out..

 

GPU Warnings …

Mac users have it easier for many of these driver issues as they control all aspects of all drivers with each SW update. With each macOS software update you’ll usually see a mention of graphic driver updates. For the record, macOS users need to know that we are tuning all GPU speed performance to OSX Metal which is nw performing better or on par with OpenCL.

 

 

**We are yet to see Nvidia Cuda support via Nvidia’s WebDriver for macOS 10.14.x . 

 

 

Multi-GPU Enhancements and new eGPU support:

As many of you know, Premiere Pro and Media Encoder (AME) have had Multi-GPU and Multi-Core/Threading support for many years. BUT…. we’ve needed to take another pass at how we use Multi-GPU not that many of the options and use cases have changed. For users with Desktops that have Multiple GPUs you see better overall performance with our GPU tuning. This includes New Mac Pro users with GPUs like the AMD D500 & D700 which will now use more of the GPU due to new Metal updates in macOS 10.14.x . BTW – for Mac users wanting to get the most out of their GPU(s) I would highly recommend macOS Mojave. Apple has done a great job on this OS for editors and compositors. Windows 10 users have had some great updates as well since version x1803 and higher. I’m also looking forward to the end user having control of when to turn off Windows updates…

 

Here’s a short 5 minute video on our eGPU update. I would like mention that Windows 10 users will also see great improvements as well. Windows users just need to pay close attension to GPU drivers and as I mention in the video , try not to mix GPU drivers if you can avoid it. Ie, if you laptop has a Geforce mobile GPU then match with Geforce Desktop card for your eGPU chassis (same for Quadro & AMD). Yes, you can mix and match and in many cases it will work but in many cases,  it can be the root cause of weird hard to track down issues. If you mix cards then remember that when/if you see issues.

eGPU support explained in 5 minutes…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drlUWYh_U4I&t=137s

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My #1 favorite feature in Premiere Pro v13.1

Render and Replace now includes a checkbox for Include Video Effects. This is HUGE for those times with Effects can’t play in real-time. Works great for 4K video with Red Giant plug-ins and Warp Stabilizer. YES – you can still use [Restored Unrendered] to re-activate the applied effects to make changes.

 

 

 

 

Freeform  View is long awaited feature that many users have been asking forto help organize shots into mini stories or what I like to call “Story Stacks”. I think this is one of those features that will be used in many different ways depending on the user.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Multiple Strokes and Masking Text in Essential Graphics is a small but huge time saver . This is worth spending some time with as it really shows how much can be done in Premiere Pro without the need to jump to AE for basic text and templates.

 

 

 

 

 

If you didn’t know , you can save any title/text with effects controls as a Motion Graphics template which can saved and also used with Premiere Rush (make sure to click the Premiere Rush Compatibility box)

 

 

 

 

Rulers and Guides are now available in the Program Panel to help align elements . This was a top requested feature in our User Voice form which can be found under the [Help] menu >Provide Feedback. Please submit your requests.

 

 

 

Another small but useful feature : Auto Ducking now allows for Ambient Sounds. Duck ambience sound behind dialogue, sound effects, or any other audio clip using the Ducking parameter in the Essential Sound panel.

 

 

 

 

 

Another huge performance boost for Masking and Tracking .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frame Replacement for Decode Errors

Instead of inserting red frames for decode errors, Premiere Pro now replaces problem frames with a copy of the adjacent frame, smoothing out the issue so you can edit your content without distraction red frames and export pristine footage in your completed projects.

This feature is enabled by default.

Note:

Frame replacement is limited to 5 consecutive decode errors. If there are more than 5 consecutive frame errors, Premiere Pro shows a pop-up error in the Events panel and inserts black frames to replace bad frames where possible.

 

 

 

New support for Sony Venice V3 files . ** We are looking to add additional codec support stay tuned.. Supported file formats.

 

Other enhancements

  • Ability to consolidate duplicate folders in the Project panel. For more information, see Consolidate duplicate folders.
  • Ability to render and replace video effects in a sequence. For more information, see Render and replace media in a sequence
  • Ability to save the current view state of the Project Panel into keyboard-mappable presets. This includes the metadata columns that are visible in List View, as well as their arrangement from left to right.

 

Just a reminder to Windows users that we added Apple ProRes encode support in v13.02 which is great way to do crossplatform work with macOS users.

December 2018 CC2019 UPDATE

Adobe Pro Video Apps Now Support Crossplatform Apple ProRes Export

(Pr/AME 13.0.2 & AE 16.01)

We are pleased to announce new support for exporting Apple ProRes on the Windows platform with the Dec 2018  updates to the Adobe Creative Cloud video apps, including:

  • Premiere Pro CC
  • After Effects CC
  • Adobe Media Encoder CC
Apple ProRes is a codec technology developed by Apple for high-quality, high-performance editing. It is one of the most popular codecs in professional post-production and is widely used for acquisition, production, delivery, and archive. Adobe has worked with Apple to provide ProRes export to post-production professionals using Premiere Pro and After Effects. Support for ProRes on macOS and Windows helps streamline video production and simplifies final output, including server-based remote rendering with Adobe Media Encoder.

  

 

Key call outs for this update

 

Stability

  • Crash when switching into DM mode after dragging the application to another monitor.
  • Crash when running a film project with multiple audio effects.
  • Effect Controls Panel crashes randomly. The control points of curves cannot be selected and adjusted.
  • In a locked project panel, double click opens importer dialog.
  • Crash occurs on zooming video or image in program monitior to 400% and scrolling to the left on Mac OS.
  • Multiple MXF files appear truncated on the system.

Performance

  • Performance drop in software decoding in the current build when compared to previous builds (12.11 and 12.12)
