Adobe Aims to Refine Video Workflows with New Premiere Pro Updates

Premiere Pro Updates
New updates to the Adobe Creative Cloud include some workflow updates for Premiere Pro.

While some of the biggest news from Adobe’s new Creative Cloud updates are for After Effects and its new “Content-Aware Fill” (which you can read how to use step-by-step here), there’s plenty of updates as well for Premiere Pro.

Let’s take a look at some of Adobe’s workflow refining updates below.

Adobe Premiere Pro Updates

From the additions of a new “freeform project panel” to faster mask tracking and improved tilting tools, here are all the updates for Premiere Pro.

  • Freeform Project panel - Visually review, organize, and storyboard your media. Assemble rough cuts and then drag them right onto your timeline for editing.

  • Rulers and guides - New rulers, guides, and grids make sizing and aligning graphics and titles easier. Snap graphics to guides or each other. Color-coded guides ensure consistent positioning for lower thirds, logos, and more.

  • Auto Ducking for ambient sound - Powered by Adobe Sensei, Auto Ducking for ambient sound utilizes AI technology to detect dialog or voiceover and automatically adjust background sound. Adjustments are keyframed and easy to fine-tune.

  • Faster mask tracking - Speed up color grading and effects workflows with improved performance for HD, 4K and higher resolution content.

  • Improved titling tools - All your titling and graphics tools are in the Essential Graphics panel, plus new options like multiple strokes, stroke styling, and background fills. Replace font families in a Motion Graphics template with one click.

  • Graphics enhancements - Drag and drop multiple Motion Graphics templates into the Essential Graphics panel. Group shapes and apply masks from the Essential Graphics panel.

  • View menu - A dedicated View menu consolidates Program Monitor commands, such as magnification and playback performance and new Guides.

  • Audio efficiency - User-requested improvements include the ability to re-order audio effects and to copy and paste effects across clips and projects.

  • Performance improvements - Improvements include new 10-bit hardware decoding for smoother HEVC playback on Windows, faster hardware decoding for H.264 and HEVC on MacOS, and RED Metal acceleration.

  • Frame replacement for decode errors - Instead of replacing problem frames with red frames, they are now replaced with a copy of the adjacent frame.

  • Shortcut support for non-English keyboards - Shortcuts are automatically mapped to non-English keyboards including German, Japanese, French, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Portuguese, and Norwegian.

  • Image scaling options - Choose between absolute or proportional scaling to maintain correct positioning when reframing or resizing sequences.

  • Expanded format support - Import native Sony Venice V3 files and 32-bit AIFF audio media along with recently introduced support for ProRes Windows (13.0.2) and ProRes HDR (13.0.2).
