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.
