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).
