Graphics and Titles
The Graphics and Titles workflows in Premiere Pro have multiple enhancements including an all-new universal text engine, convenient spell checking and find and replace in titles and Motion graphics, simpler text navigation, and more.
Manage titles and graphics efficiently via the new Graphics tab in the Text panel. Use global Search and Replace to update text and titles – or just search to navigate between graphics in a sequence. Use spell check for anything with text, whether it was created in Premiere Pro or After Effects.
Premiere Pro now has a universal text engine that makes working with multiple languages in Premiere Pro and After Effects easier and faster.
The shape tools in Premiere Pro have been expanded and improved, including a new polygon tool, improved controls for ellipses and rectangles, and the ability to define and apply rounded corners.
Draw lines with greater precision with improvements to the Pen tool in Premiere Pro. Draw straight lines including perfect 0°, 45°, 90° angles, rotate existing lines, and add control points with Bezier handles for curves, whether at custom angles or constrained to 0°, 45°, and 90°.
If you open projects containing Legacy Titles, a dialog opens prompting you to update your legacy titles to modern graphics. Follow the prompts to update.
Editing text is easier with improvements to text selection and carat behavior.
Editing and workflow
This release introduces improvements for professional editors, including a convenient new button for ganged playback and changes to streamline multi-cam workflows.
You can now add a new Gang button can be added to the transport controls for side-by-side playback in the Program and Source monitors. Ganged playback makes it easier to compare sequences. This is not a new capability, but the new button makes it easier to access and provides a visual indicator when ganged playback is enabled.
You can now define which camera view to use as your multi-cam thumbnail in the timeline. Instead of the top track in the timeline, the new default thumbnail is the A camera and you can use keyboard shortcuts to cycle through camera views to preview them and choose new thumbnails if needed.
You can now use your keyboard to batch edit footage with the move poster frame 10 frames forward or back keyboard shortcuts - for example, to show a slate or skip ahead to the action in a scene.
Caption files now load faster and can be updated more easily. After importing a captions file, Premiere Pro scans the file in the background. Once the captions are available, you can use the new Update Captions from Source command to populate the timeline.
Hardware-accelerated ProRes is now up to 5x faster on new Apple silicon Macs. Playback and exports for 4K and 8K ProRes are much improved on new MacBook Pros with Apple M1 Pro and Apple M1 Max chips.
Premiere Pro exports for high-resolution HEVC are faster with macOS 12 on M1 Macs. Hardware encoding is now enabled for DCI 4K and 8K HEVC exports, resulting in significantly faster performance.
Display technology optimizations provide improved playback on Windows systems with Intel Integrated GPUs.
Powered by Adobe Sensei, color match is up to 30% faster - speeding up the color correction workflow in Premiere Pro.
Newly GPU-accelerated effects include Gradient Wipe, and Roughen Edge.
Premiere Pro Beta
Here are some of the new features currently in Premiere Pro Beta!
Use Remix to intelligently re-arrange songs so that your music matches your videos. Instead of manual razor cuts and crossfades, let Remix do the work for you, generating a new mix in seconds.
Auto Tone uses new technology to apply intelligent color corrections in the Lumetri Color panel. Auto Tone adjustments are reflected in the Lumetri sliders so that you can fine-tune the results.
Now in Beta, Speech to Text on-device lets you use Speech to Text without an internet connection, providing faster transcriptions.
New import mode, currently in Premiere Pro (Beta) now includes UI refinements, sorting options, marquee selection, a playhead for scrubbing thumbnails, the ability to copy files on import, and more.
Today I say yes. Oh my God, the developers have made adjustments to smooth playback on the timeline. Four projects are behind us. PlayHead runs back and forth without stuttering. I even specially checked the JKL keyboard shortcut, everything is running. Kevin, my respects. You can, when asked.
This is on the Win 11.
Kevin system, but it worked better in version 22.1.1 when working with text, feedback, and without slowing down. Why did they touch it? So far, I haven't noticed anything from further improvements that can be noted in the latest version, except for the smoothness of the question. Sadly.
Kevin, likewise. The entire Adobe Happy Holidays community and company ✌️
Please give users flexibility to move caption objects beyond "title safe" areas.
The revamp of Premiere's captioning feature (prior to this version) no longer allows users to move around a caption object as one would a video object by allowing changes to the position values via the Motion section of Effect Controls. This was a very helpful workaround, but with the recent revamp, Caption objects can no longer be handled like video objects.
There are many special non-broadcast special use cases where precise positioning of stylized captions are necessary.
Also, the position slider values continue to go adjust, even as the caption object has stopped moving.
I will also note especially, thank you very much to the Adobe developers, for paying attention to my request, which few people wrote about here in the community, which is surprising. Finally, we adjusted the correct display between switching workspaces (panels) in Premiere. This is very important, because I waited and wrote so much, I don't know who contributed, but it is extremely important for everyone to see it in the new version. Everything is responsive and does not stutter as before. The panels switch between each other as intended. My respects. Let's figure out the rest
Thanks for the kinds words, Baffy. You have a nice holiday, as well.
Every time there is an update, something doesnt work anymore...
I literally dont know what's going on because i've just got a macbook air 13' m1 8gb 256ssd and also got adobe pack genuine, installed adobe premiere last version, and it's lagging a lot in a simple video preview in 1080p 24fps in 1/4 of the quality. Could someone explain me why is that?
I read this entire post and NOWHERE does it speak about Plug-in issues? I am currently unable to see my Boris, Sapphire and Red Giant EFX in the Effects panel.
