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
For a complete list of supported file formats, see Supported file formats.

  • Improved stability when switching editing workspaces when logged into Sync Settings
  • Improved stability when exporting using NVIDIA GPU without NVENC

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.

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

  • Duplicate name of a folder can disappear
  • Open Caption center alignment is not being respected

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.

  • 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.
