FAQ

What hardware will make Adobe Premiere Pro CC run even better? Does Adobe Premiere Pro support the hardware, camera, and other software I use?

Adobe Premiere Pro CC has a scalable architecture, so performance scales with the speed of your system. The minimum system requirements for your workflow depend on the type of content you plan to work with. See the system requirements for Adobe Premiere Pro CC. With native 64-bit support, Adobe Premiere Pro can take advantage of all the available RAM on your system. For multicore systems, Adobe recommends 4GB or more of RAM per core. On any system, you will see substantial performance gains as you add more RAM. 16GB of RAM is a good baseline if you plan to run multiple applications simultaneously. Plus the Adobe Mercury Transmit plug-in enables tighter integration with third-party I/O hardware.

New features in Adobe Premiere Pro (version 12.0) October 2017 release

Multiple Open Projects
Premiere Pro allows you to open, access, and work in multiple projects simultaneously. It also allows editors working on series or episodic content to jump between and across episodes without repeatedly opening and closing individual projects. When you are working on feature films, multiple open projects helps in the management of large productions - you can break-up a large production into individual projects per scene, instead of opening and closing multiple timelines by accessing individual scene timelines via a tab-based structure. You can also freely edit and copy portions of one project into another with ease.

Shared projects
This feature helps an editing team in the same facility to work collaboratively on a single project simultaneously. Managed access throughout the project allows you to lock projects when they actively edit and provides read-only access to those who want to see their work but not allow them to make changes. Using shared projects, co-editors or editors and their assistants can access a single project simultaneously, thus enabling the ability to get more work done faster without concern for overwriting work.

Responsive Design - Time
The Essential Graphics panel includes controls for Responsive Design for motion graphics creation. Responsive Design for Motion Graphics include time and position-based controls to make Motion Graphics respond intelligently to changes in duration, aspect ratio, and frame size.

With responsive design time-based controls, you can define segments of their graphics that preserve intro and outro animations, even when the overall duration of the graphic changes. Your graphics can adapt as your creative vision develops. You can also preserve intro and outro animations for motion graphics even when changing the overall duration of the graphic.

Responsive Design - Position
Position-based controls for Responsive Design allow you to define relationships between layers in a graphic with each other along with the video frame itself so that alterations to one automatically alters properties in the pinned layers/video frame.

Responsive Design position-based controls in Premiere Pro enable pinned graphic layers to automatically adapt to changes made to other layers or to the video frame itself – like changes to positioning or frame size. By applying specific Responsive Design designations for Position, your graphics automatically adapt when changing the length of your title or lower third, so nothing goes out of frame.

Motion Graphics templates available in Adobe Stock
You can access professionally created Motion Graphics templates in Adobe Stock. Editors wanting to work with dynamic, professional graphics, or graphics packages such as titles, lower 3rds, bumpers and closing credits, can access Motion Graphics templates created by talented professionals right in Adobe Stock through the Libraries panel in Premiere Pro.

Immersive VR editing using head-mount display
Create smooth transitions, titles, graphics, and effects and navigate your VR timeline in a headmount display while still incorporating keyboard driven editing like trimming or adding markers. This helps you edit in an immersive, head-mount display environment such as an HTC Vive, Google Daydream VR, or Oculus Rift. In addition, you can shuttle playback, change orientation, and add markers all while in a head-mount display environment. The viewing of Virtual Reality content is an immersive experience – and with immersive VR editing capabilities in Premiere Pro, now editing VR can be too. This set of features enables editors to experience the immersive qualities of the content they are editing, review, and mark places that need finessing, all while wearing the same VR head-mounts as their audiences.

Immersive audio editing for VR
Edit VR content using audio based on orientation, which increases the immersive quality of VR content exponentially. The new functionality that is added enables audio by your orientation / position to not only be edited but also exported as ambisonic audio for VR enabled platforms such as YouTube and Facebook. Much like VR video in Premiere Pro, the audio is an explorable 360 representation. Expanding on the foundational VR workflow components Premiere Pro now offers immersive ambisonic audio to take the VR experience to the next level with positionally aware audio represented within the spherical video.

Improvements to Essential Graphics workflows
Enhancements to the existing essential graphics panel include:

  • Ability to directly manipulate multiple graphic layers simultaneously in the program monitor.
  • Support for title rolls.
  • A new font menu that gives font previews in the menu, allows you to select favorites, with filtering and improved search options. This gives you more intuitive functionality when working with the Essential Graphics panel.

360/VR transitions, titles, and effects
Premiere Pro offers a deeply integrated set of Mettle Skybox Suite of plug-ins for 360/VR including dynamic transitions, effects, and titling. When working in 360/VR, you no longer have to go through installing third-party plug-ins to accomplish dynamic transitions, effects, and titling for immersive experiences.

Support for more formats
Premiere Pro supports the latest formats including Sony X-OCN (RAW for Sony F55), and .WAV files more than 4 GB.

Support for certain regional Closed Caption standards
You can set metadata to sidecar .stl files so that the created sidecar file contains the wanted information.

Support for Team Projects 1.0
Support for Team Projects 1.0 includes auto-save history and a host of experience improvements.            

Auto-save history:

  • Visibility into your auto-save history provides assurance that all changes were saved.
  • Allows you to revert to an older team project, even when you haven’t already shared with collaborators.
  • Access to prior auto-saves provides security if you run into issues with your current state.

Experience improvements:

  • Better notification helps to minimize conflicts before they occur.
  • Avoid inadvertently closing your Team Project without sharing your changes with collaborators.
  • Easier access to version history.

Optimized Lumetri support for ARRI
Optimized Lumetri support for ARRI Amira in-camera look decisions Amira LUTs are now loaded automatically and wired into the Lumetri panel for convenient control over its impact to the look of each shot. Performance is optimized to allow for using this feature on long form work such as documentaries or feature films. Performance is optimized to allow you to access and implement in-camera look decisions directly from within the Lumetri Color panel.

Use After Effects-created Motion Graphics templates without installing After Effects
When editing the properties of the Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects, you can use it now without having After Effects installed on your machine.

New Getting started experience for beginners
Enhanced getting started experience helps you be successful in a short time. Thus, Premiere Pro enables you to get comfortable with the software, feel confident and successful quickly.
