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
• Encode Apple ProRes MXF Op1a

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.

• Clip thumbnails in the Media Browser are cached in order to provide faster scrolling.

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.

Premiere v12.1 UI Audio Bug (FIX)

 

 

In case people are still experiencing the v12.1.1 Audio Bug in a current project with our most recent update V12.1.2, here’s an official post to help clarify what’s happening and how to fix the v12.1.1 project.

v12.1.1 UI Audio Bug
Issue:
The issue could occur when an audio track was muted in a sequence and then the v12.1.1 project was saved and closed. When you reopened the project, the UI for the sequence no longer showed the audio track as being muted as the UI reset the toggle to show it as on. When a user would play back the sequence , not all of the audio tracks would appear to play causing them to possibly think it was a caching issue or codec related issue. Premiere was actually playing the sequence back correctly as those tracks were muted from the previous save state but the UI bug caused the issue where there was no indication that the track was muted.

Solution: (the Fix)
Once a v12.1.1 project shows this UI behavior it needs to be corrected and resaved. **Note** v12.1.2 will not correct this issue simply by opening the project in V12.1.2 .

You need to follow these steps to repair the project.

1. Toggle the Solo button on/off and the Audio track will correct the playback state. To keep it simple, Solo/Unsolo each audio track.

2. Playback the Sequence to insure that all audio tracks can be heard and monitored.

3. Save the Project

4. Quit Premiere Pro

5. Relaunch and issue should now be fixed.

As stated, the fix for this issue is included in the recent update, v12.1.2. This update keeps the UI bug from occurring so the user should not run into the issue again.

Dav’s NAB 2018 #1 Show Pick must have..

As I pack up and head out to NAB 2018 I’m actually looking forward to my 25th NAB show . Each NAB show has our field teams and booth teams busy coping files back and forth between our main booth , field laptops, and our partners who want to share their new tools and their project files. In the past this took all day just to get files copied and it also required stacks of small portable drives that we needed to keep track of who had them last. All of this was mainly due to one thing…transfer speeds .

Our typical Adobe Premiere Pro project folder size ranges from 12GB to over 40GB depending on native RAW projects vs Proxy projects or both RAW & proxy in one project . This NAB, I’ve found the perfect solution and it fits in my pocket – the new Thunderbolt 3 OWC Envoy Pro EX (VE)

This small 2TB bus powered Thunderbolt 3 drive packs the latest SSD (NVMe) technology and something you just need to see and use in person. I could just tell you that it has a sustained 2600MB/s per second that’s optimized for professional video production but my real world daily “on the go” tests are much more impressive to me.

It takes just under 20 Seconds to copy my NAB files (14.56GB) from my Mac Laptop to the Envoy Pro EX. Impressive no matter how you look at it. As I said seeing (& using) is believing.

 

On the setup side, OWC does a very nice job of making it easy while also giving techies like me full control over setup.

What next?

After NAB , I’ll be taking a closer look at the Envoy EX Pro’s big brother, the ThunderBlade , that’s about twice as wide and a little thicker (cooling fins) and packs up to 8TB of pure Thunderbolt 3 speed. So many uses come to mind from backing up 8K RAW files and my huge VR projects. I’ve using both these drives for several weeks and no question that OWC has set a new performance bar..

Here’s a quick peek inside the New ThunderBlade ..

Stay tuned..
