Turn raw footage into flawless productions with Premiere Pro CC, the industry-leading video editing software. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, you can edit, adjust color, refine audio, and more — all in one seamless, integrated workflow.
What’s New in the Premiere Pro 2020 (14.0) Release, November 2019
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.
You can now easily optimize your content for different social media and mobile viewing platforms. Instead of manually cropping and keyframing footage, Auto Reframe automates the process using Adobe Sensei AI technology.
Use Auto Reframe to reframe sequences for square, vertical, and cinematic 16:9, or for cropping high-resolution footage.
Auto Reframe can be applied as an effect to individual clips or to entire sequences. Graphics and other edits are maintained within the new aspect ratio.
This release of Premiere Pro has many graphics and text enhancements.
Ability to rename shape layers
You can now rename shape layers inside the Essential Graphics panel by clicking the name and editing the resulting text field. You can then commit your new name by pressing Enter or clicking away from the text field.
Multi-line text fields in Motion Graphics templates
Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects now include the option for multi-line text fields. Instead of requiring a separate text field for each line, you can now add and edit multiple lines of text in Premiere Pro when using templates with this feature enabled.
New drop-down menu option in Motion Graphics templates
Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects can now include drop-down menus, simplifying the workflow in Premiere Pro. Use the controls in the drop-down list to choose different styles or graphic elements when customizing your motion graphics.
New keyboard shortcuts for working with the Essential Graphics panel
Premiere Pro now includes additional 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.
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 to 20,000 percent
The maximum speed for time remapping has been increased to 20,000 percent, allowing users to create time-lapse footage from very long source clips.
New and improved file format support
This release of Premiere Pro provides improved performance for H264, H265 (HEVC), and ProRes – including ProRes HDR – on both macOS and Windows.
New and improved format support includes:
Improved Apple ProRes HDR support
QuickTime Animation files with Delta Frames
AVI Motion JPEG files (macOS)
Canon XF-HEVC footage
Canon EOS C500 Mark II footage
Sony Venice V4 footage
Encode Apple ProRes MXF Op1a
New encoding presets for publishing video to Adobe Stock
The following presets are added to the preset pool and can be found in the Preset Browser:
Adobe Stock 4K DCI:
with audio – 40Mbps
with audio – Apple ProRes 422 HQ)
without Audio (40Mbps)
without Audio (Apple ProRes 422 HQ)
Adobe Stock HD:
with Audio (20Mbps)
with Audio (Apple ProRes 422 HQ)
without Audio (20Mbps)
without Audio (Apple ProRes 422 HQ)
Adobe Stock UHD:
with Audio (40Mbps)
with Audio (Apple ProRes 422 HQ)
without Audio (40Mbps)
without Audio (Apple ProRes 422 HQ)
Note: In order to ensure high-quality content for Adobe Stock, the Render at Max Bit Depth checkbox is enabled for the ProRes presets. The H.264 presets are set to VBR 2-pass. The VBR 2-pass option generally provides higher quality. This preset also disables hardware encoding, which optimizes quality but takes longer to encode.
More drivers audited in System Compatibility Report
The System Compatibility Report utility was introduced in April 2019 to ensure your system is running current drivers, as required by Premiere Pro. This utility runs when you start Premiere Pro and is also available by clicking Help > System Compatibility Report.
The Metal GPU renderer option in the Project Settings dialog box is now the recommended renderer for Premiere Pro on macOS. For more information, see Create a project.
You can now free up disk space directly from the Preferences panel. Select Preferences > Media Cache, and click Delete. For more information, see Media Cache preferences.
Clip thumbnails in the Media Browser are cached in order to provide faster scrolling.
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.

To conclude, this is an exciting update!
Selective color grading
Take the guesswork out of curve adjustments with innovative new Lumetri Color tools for selective color correction.
Each curve offers two axes with paired values, such as Hue versus Hue, or Luma versus Saturation, so you can fine-tune colors with ease and accuracy.
To display accurate colors on any system, enable Display Color Management. It automatically converts colors to the color space of your display (including Rec. 709, Rec. 2020, and P3).
In the past, it was necessary to manually set your OS display profile to be sure that you were seeing accurate colors, and sometimes it was not possible. Display color management takes the guesswork and displays correct colors no matter what ICC profile your display is set to in the operating system.
For more information on enabling or disabling color management, see Set general preferences.
Note: This feature requires GPU acceleration.
Create and edit multiple Lumetri color effects
In the Lumetri Color panel, you can now have multiple effects or layers stacked. After you create a new Lumetri color effect, you can rename it, add more layers, or subtract layers.
You can now easily select which instance of Lumetri you want to work on in the Lumetri panel. You can also add, subtract, and delete specific Lumetri instances using the same dropdown.
For more information, see Create and edit multiple Lumetri instances.
Edit Premiere Rush files in Premiere Pro
Edit Premiere Rush files in Premiere Pro
Premiere Rush CC is an all-new mobile and desktop app that lets you create and publish professional-quality video, including color, audio, and motion graphics from almost anywhere. You can capture and edit footage using Premiere Rush on iOS, macOS, or Windows.
When you want to take editing to the next level, you can open native Premiere Rush projects in Premiere Pro and continue to edit them in Premiere Pro.
For more information, see Open Premiere Rush projects in Premiere Pro.
Note: If you have a single app Premiere Pro subscription, Rush is available bundled with it.
Intelligent audio cleanup
Instantly improve your audio by removing background noise or reverb. The new Reduce Noise and Reduce Reverb sliders in the Essential Sound panel let you dial down, or remove, background noise and reverb. These options are also available as effects (DeNoise and DeReverb) in the Effects panel. You can apply them to your audio track and then control the intensity of the effect using the Effect Controls panel.
Vector motion controls reduce pixelation and eliminate render bounds. To transform layers of the graphics, and adjust and set keyframes directly, use the vector motion controls in the Effects Control panel.
When you edit graphics using the vector motion controls, they are retained as vector graphics preventing pixelation.
For more information, see Edit and transform vector graphics.
Essential Graphics and Motion Graphics Template enhancements
Ability to fine-tune Motion Graphics templates in Premiere Pro
Turn numbers into stories using data-driven Motion Graphics templates
In Premiere Pro, you can now add your own spreadsheet to a data-driven After Effects Motion Graphic template (MOGRT) and drive the animation or make changes to the data in the MOGRT.
In earlier releases, you had to make a lot of tedious changes manually. For example, if you wanted to change the numbers in a chart for all months, January-December, you had to change 12 values manually. Now, if you have the data in a spreadsheet, you can simply map the spreadsheet to the MOGRT and all values are updated automatically.
For more information, see Create data-driven Motion Graphics templates.
Edit source text properties in Motion Graphics templates
You can now edit source text properties in Motion Graphics templates (if they are enabled for editing by the author in After Effects).
Some of the properties you can edit are:
Font size adjustment
For more information, see Customize your Motion Graphics template.
Note: This is applicable for Motion Graphics templates created using After Effects CC versions 16.0 or later.
Change the duration of a Motion Graphics template
You can now change the duration of a Motion Graphics template in Premiere Pro while maintaining the animations.
Improved search experience of Motion Graphics templates in Adobe Stock
You can now search and sort cinematic footage and professionally designed Motion Graphics templates more efficiently with the pagination improvements in the Essential Graphics panel.
For more information, see Search Adobe Stock for Motion Graphics templates using the Essential Graphics panel.
End-to-end workflows for 180 VR
You can create 180VR video with optimized ingest, editorial, and effects, for otoscopic and stereoscopic content that puts your audience right in the middle of the action. You can also output finished videos in the Google VR180 format for YouTube, Facebook, or other platforms.
Theater Mode gives you a new portable reference monitor within the Adobe Immersive Environment. This mode acts as a virtual screening room for collaborating with your director or producer, whether for 2D or immersive content, or a combination of both.
When you try to view footage with Adobe Immersive Environment (AIE) active, you now enter a virtual room with a monitor ahead of you that represents something like a home theater experience. Adobe Immersive Environment automatically switches to this “theater mode” when the Source or Program Monitor encounters traditional 2D, non-immersive footage.
For more information, see Set up and use Head Mounted Display for immersive video in Premiere Pro.
Group invites for Team Projects
You can now invite collaborators to your team project using groups that are synced from your organization’s directory (for enterprise users). You can also invite others to collaborate on your team project by inviting a group instead of typing individual email addresses.
Premiere Pro now supports the Australian OP4T2 closed captioning standard.
Hardware-based decoding for H264 and native HEVC provides better performance for those formats and faster rendering.
Improved image processing provides more responsive playback, rendering, and Lumetri Color performance.
New Home Screen
The Premiere Pro home screen when you first launch it
When you launch Premiere Pro, it now displays a Home Screen, which includes options to:
Open a wide range of tutorials to help you quickly learn the basic workflows, and more advanced tips and tricks.
Create a project or open an existing project.
For more information, see Navigate and use the Home screen.
A new option Auto-Save also saves the current project(s) has been added to the AutoSave preferences panel. When you enable this option, Auto Save creates an archived copy of one or more current projects, but also saves the current working project. This setting is off by default.
Autosaved versions have a suffix with the date and time it was saved (yy-mm-dd-hh-mm-ss) appended to the project name (for example, ProjectName-2018-08-31_09-53-41.prproj).
When an auto-save occurs, Premiere Pro creates a new backup project file and adds it to the auto-save folder as an emergency project backup. This file is always the latest saved version of that project.
For more information on auto-save preferences, see Set Auto Save preferences.
Premiere Pro now shows a confirmation dialog if you delete preferences using the Alt or Opt keys at launch.
You can now use shorthand substitutes when you enter timecode values (for example, a period instead of two zeros). You no longer have to type the zeros manually. For more information, see Use shorthand substitutes while entering timecode.
You can now delete clip markers on clips in the sequence without having to load them back into the Source monitor first to delete. For more information, see Delete markers.
You can now press the Esc key to deselect anything that is selected in the Timeline.
Label colors now remain visible when video clips are selected.

To replace a template in a timeline with an updated version from After Effects, simply hold Alt/Option +, and drag and drop the new replacement template onto an existing one. You can choose to have the template updated everywhere it was used in a project or limit to one instance. Where possible, your customizations will be preserved.
Toggle animation for graphics layers in the Essential Graphics panel
Animate more quickly with the ability to toggle on animation for Position, Rotation, Anchor Point, Scale, and Opacity by clicking their icons in the Essential Graphics panel and then adjusting the property in the panel or by editing the graphic layer directly in the Program Monitor. As you move your playhead, changes you make to the property are recorded as key frames.
This new panel inside the Adobe Immersive Environment gives a view of the full sphere of footage and can be used to rotate the current view in the head mounted display.

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.
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.
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.
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.
