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)

Time Remapping – now supports up to 20,000 percent

New and Improved File Formats:
• Improved Apple ProRes HDR support
• Import of QuickTime Animation files with Delta Frames
• Import of AVI Motion JPEG files (macOS)
• Import of Canon XF-HEVC footage
• Import of Canon EOS C500 Mark II footage
• Import of Sony Venice V4 footage

Exporting HDR Content with HDR10 metadata – ensures your content looks its best on HDR-enabled displays. To add this metadata, choose High10 (H.264) or Main10 (HEVC) from the Profile menu under Encoding Settings. Enable Rec. 2020 Color Primaries, High Dynamic Range, and Include HDR10 Metadata checkboxes.

Other enhancements
• The Metal GPU renderer option in the Project Settings dialog box is now the recommended renderer for Premiere Pro on macOS.

• You can now free up disk space directly from the Preferences panel. Select Preferences > Media Cache, and click Delete.
