Editing and Workflow
The April release of Premiere Pro (version 22.3.1) introduces Frame.io for Creative Cloud with built-in review and approval, redesigned Import and Export in Premiere Pro, a new header bar for easier navigation within the application, Auto Color, which uses the power of Adobe Sensei to accelerate color correction, workflow enhancements and Speech to Text support for Cantonese.
Check out this video by Adobe's Jon Barrie and Chris Hanson.
Share work-in-progress with colleagues and clients and collect their feedback, using Frame.io, now built into Premiere Pro and included with your Creative Cloud membership. Open the new Review workspace and log into Frame.io, using your Adobe ID. Use Frame.io to upload projects and assets, share for review, and receive comments in real-time. Reviewers can view and comment securely using the Frame.io app or in their browser.
All feedback is collected in one place, providing a simple, streamlined solution for review and approval.

Instantly connect production with post-production. Included with Frame.io for Creative Cloud, the new Camera to Cloud workflow lets you send camera files directly to Premiere Pro so that editing work can begin while production is happening.
Camera to Cloud works with the professional cameras, audio recorders, and production gear you already use. Images are sent from your RED, ARRI, Panavision, or Sony cameras to a Teradek CUBE, while sound recorders upload directly to Frame.io. Camera to Cloud supercharges the on-set media workflow and can also connect with software such as Pomfort Livegrade and ShotHub, ZoeLog, Magic ViewFinder, and Colorfront.
For more information, check out the Camera to Cloud Training Series.
The redesigned Import experience opens the door to editing in Premiere Pro with a rich, visual, and intuitive way of starting video projects and collecting media. Instead of project settings, you are presented with your media. As you select files and folders, these are added to the tray, providing the first glimpse of your storyline. Click Create and Premiere Pro brings your media onto the timeline as a new sequence, ready for editing.
Collect media from multiple locations and favorite regularly used sources for faster access. Create Bins for your imports and copy media in the background while you begin editing. The new workflow is great for reviewing and copying camera media and for workflows such as assembling dailies stringouts. When needed, create an empty project and use existing import workflows, such as File >Import or via the Project panel.
For more information, see Import media.
The new Export experience gives you all the power of Premiere Pro in a more organized and streamlined design.
Orchestrate all of your exports with an efficient one-to-many layout, and deliver them to their destinations in one process.
Toggle on each destination, including exporting to a local drive, social media platforms, and FTP sites, and Premiere Pro presents recommended settings for each.
Click Export and Premiere Pro renders all of your output files, with the option to post them automatically.
The whole export workflow is customizable. You can choose other presets from the Preset dropdown menu – and open the Preset Manager for more options and save custom presets.
Use smart rendering for faster exports. Customize the sequence preview file format to use the format you wish to export, ProRes, for example. Then render as you work, and when it’s time to export, choose Sequence Preview Settings to get lightning-fast exports – no need to rerender.
For more information, see Export Video.
The new header bar makes navigating in Premiere Pro faster and easier. With a logical, left-to-right flow, the main stages of the process are accessible via the Import, Edit, and Export tab so it’s easy to find the things you need and move within the application.
The project name and save status are shown in the center of the header bar. Access Workspaces via the new dropdown menu, where you can also customize your workspaces and how they are displayed in the header bar.
Quick Export now includes the new Preset Manager, so you can export in any available format without leaving the current editing workspace.
For more information, see Header bar to navigate within Premiere Pro.
Use the new Preset Manager to access your preferred export settings from Quick Export or in the new Export mode.
This means you can now easily customize output settings for Quick Export, for example to output ProRes or any other export format. When you open the Preset Manager you are presented with a list of existing Premiere Pro export settings. Click the star to favorite any of these or modify any of the parameters to customize and save your own presets.
You can also use the Preset Manager to import presets from other machines or colleagues. Export presets to share with others.
For more information, see Export Preset Manager.
Color correction is now faster and easier in Premiere Pro. Auto Color uses Adobe Sensei ML technology to apply intelligent adjustments and accelerate your color correction workflow. Position the playhead somewhere in the clip your want to color correct. Auto Color uses frame sampling to optimize color across the whole clip. Adjustments are reflected in Basic Correction sliders at the top of the Lumetri panel. Adjust the overall impact using the new Intensity slider or use individual sliders to fine-tune the color and light values.
Auto Color works on the source footage, including LOG footage and footage with LUTs applied. Use Auto Color as a jumping-off point to fast track your color correction before moving on to secondary color tasks, like skin tones or sky adjustments.
New content creator? Use Auto Color as a guide as you become familiar with the color tools in Premiere Pro.
For more information, see Auto Color.
Speech to Text now includes language support for Cantonese. Speech to Text language packs are now available for 14 languages. English is included with your Premiere Pro installation and additional language packs can be installed as required. Running Speech to Text in your local system is up to 3x faster than the original cloud-based transcription.
For more information, see Speech to Text.
You can now show or hide markers by color across the entire application. Clicking the color boxes now hides unchecked marker colors in the timeline, Program Monitor, Source Monitor, Reference Monitor, and Effects Control panel.
Premiere Pro does not remove any markers. It only hides the unchecked markers. You can always display hidden marker colors by selecting the desired color or unchecking all boxes.
For more information, see Show and hide markers according to color.
You can now start looping playback at the playhead rather than the closest edit point. This option is much more intuitive and immediate since the nearest edit point may be unrelated to what you are currently looking at.
When you apply Remix to an audio clip, a new indicator shows Remix analysis progress. This provides visual confirmation that Remix is at work.
For more information on Remix, see Remix in Premiere Pro.
Premiere Pro now offers support for the Sony VENICE 2 cameras.
You can now increase or decrease the size of the text in the Text panel in Premiere Pro according to your reading comfort level.
While exporting an Edit Decision List (EDL) file, you can now choose whether to show the source clip name (as shown in the Project panel) or the timeline clip name by clicking on the wrench menu and toggling Show Source Clip Name and Label.
This allows you to modify a clip name in an EDL export without changing the source file names.
For more information, see Exporting a project as an EDL file.
Premiere Pro Beta
There are currently no new features in Beta. Premiere Pro's import, export, header bar, and Auto Color (called Auto Tone while in Beta) features are now available in the latest main release of Premiere Pro. Download it from Creative Cloud Desktop and get started editing.
New Known Issues
I don't know what is going on with this update but Premiere keeps crashing and it is consistently getting stuck on my exports. The previous version had no problems exporting out my 1:30 hour project. I am rolling back the update.
My export freezes. Is there a way to fix this?
Uhm, can anyone give me an idea on how to downgrade back to the last version?
This is complete and utter shite. I got the new Macbook Pro 16" M1 Max Chip and when I play the footage even on 1/4, it lags like a mf. This is not it.. Imma go back to the pirated version if they don't roll out a new update. Honestly.
Everything's confusing as heck. 😠
Open your CC desktop app, go to All Apps and hit the three dots next to the program > Other versions.
The new update looks nice, however, it is causing crashing to occur on either import or open of legacy projects. I just today tried to open several project files and now they crash every time. This occurs on import or on opening the files.
It appears to be an issue with legacy titling since all of the projects crashing have legacy titles. I had to roll back to 22.2 and now I can open the files or import projects without issue.
I have HUNDREDS of videos that I have to rebrand (did hundreds last year too) and I MUST be able to convert legacy files to the new version of PP. Please fix this bug as I am sure anybody using legacy titling will see this problem as well.
I udated to 22.3 but notice it's buggy. Everytime I make a cyt I get the spinning wheel of death. I have a 64 gb, m1 max MBP. I like the layout and such and want to use it. Am I missing optimal settings?
- slow start up
- everytime I make a cut I get the spinning wheel of death and it takes a while to become responisve
- If I paste objects it becomes unresposnive for a bit as well.
Any fixes here?
First, I hope you dumped all your cache files before running a new version ... that's a good thing to do. Running an older version project without dumping cache files can be problematic.
Second ... some M1's are running hot & sweet, some ... not so good. No clue what's up.
Great update and thank you for addressing the HDR override in the previous comments - I had the same issue (which wasn't present in the previous 22.x)
Is there any way to revert the new export UI to the previous? It seems to be more inefficient. Crucial elements / settings are hidden in expand menus within dropdown menus and it feels a lot clunkier/more clicks and menu-diving to get to essential settings i.e. changing VBR. Or is the recommended workaround to avoid all together and just queue in AME?
terrible to export... don't export anything longer than 20 min
Why is my 16 inch maxed out M1 MAX MBP slower than my 2019 13 inch 2.8Ghz i7 MBP with 16GB of ram?
I did a simple test of stacking 15 clips of 4k 10 bit 4:2:2 clips with an adjustment layer on top to prerender just to see if M1 max is really that fast; sadly my 2019 MBP beat the 2021 maxed out M1 MAX MBP by 1 min 30 seconds, which tells me that M1 max chip is not really optimized yet...
Question here from a fairly new user to the software, do i need a 3 days course on how to create a new project?
the create button is greyed out and the window is so slow i feel like go bashing my head in a wall.
I run my monitor in 5k, using a dual xeon workstation with a 16 gig P5000 quadro card and 128 gig ram and Windows 10 is freshly installed like a week ago, and every click in that new create project window takes a few seconds to register, not a fun experience at all.
You should be able to simply give the project a name and location ... then hit the create or whatever its called in the lower right corner. Then import from the Project panel or MediaBrowser as always.
Same. The new way to start a new project is now absolute trash. Both in performance and flow.
I rolled back to 22.2 - Computer was hanging just opening the new Export panel, especially after editing for a while. I have an extremely fast custom PC which has no problem with multiple 4K camera editing. Something about the new version, just made Premiere hang when clicking Export. It would go eventually. Clicking on the drop down menus in the Export window also took a very long time. I had to close and reopen Premiere and then immediately Export without doing any editing.
I also don't like that for the File Name in Exporting, you cannot open the Save To folder and click on an old file to load that name - every time you have to enter a new name. Makes more work when you are exporting multiple versions over time. I liked the export section being a popup window rather than taking over the whole Premiere window.
There was no features in this update that I needed, so I'm back to 22.2
I completely agree re: the file name in exporting. This was such a useful little functionality that they've completely trashed. I'm going to revert back to old version of Premiere on my next project until this is fixed.
I was accepting the weird changes of this update until coming to this very thing in EXPORT window... so freaking dumb , and really as a whole the import/export panels are totally unnecesary ...
First, the filename thing as stated elsewhere was "an unfortunate oversight" ... that was never designed to happen at all. And will go away the next patch.
Second, they never expected advanced/experienced users to ever use the new project start/Import page. They pulled a bunch of options never ever used from the old one, added those & reshaped ... and expected experienced users would all naturally know to:
1 Type project name
2 Select project location
3 Click Create as before.
The Import page options are suited for beginners and those with simpler workflows ... that's all they're designed for.
The export page ... huh. As-is, it's a royal pain.
But if you take the time to remove ALL stars for presets you'll never use, and set detailed presets for what you need, it works. I'm not a fan ... but it works.
And it's easy to skip it by sending to Me, which I've done for years for nearly every export anyway. I get bored waiting for Pr to finish an export.
I had to roll back due to export freezes, and the new media export dialog actually takes more time to figure out.
Premiere locking me out of 'scratch disks'....
Not able to open old projects
Not able to load Adobe's stock titles
Error messages coming up on MOGRT files - unusable...
This update is FULL of bugs for the old tried and true functions - and I havn't even tried to get the new stuff looked at!!!
I've got a job deadline in a couple of days and nothing is working! What's going on???
.srt file sidecar file not being generated even when captions are displaying properly in the preview. I have tried many different export settings including burning in captions but nothing works.
Better to start a new thread; a moderator may move this.
Post a screenshot of your caption panel and the timeline.
What specific version of PR are you using? (Not just "the latest.")
Really weird bug: Exporting vertical videos leads to an error on (at least) iOS devices.
I recorded a vertical video in a vertical sequence. And then wanted to export it and went with the preset "adaptive high quality" and set it to "match to source" (I guess thats the english translation for "use the size of the sequence of 1080x1920 rather than 1920x1080"). Exported it. MacOS can read the file, everything is okay. But then sent it via wetransfer, dropbox and airdrop on my phone to post it on social media and my phone with the latest iOS updates installed just gives me crossed playbutton and wont play it back. Tried different settings and different presets. Nothing helped. Then I once accidently forgot to press "match to source" and got an export with black bars left and right. Was curious and sent it to phone and boom, it worked. Now I had a vertical video in a horizontal video, damnit. Then I clicked further and found out, that the facebook-video preset doesnt need to be clicked by "match source", its just recognizes the vertical video and there we go, those vertical files are accepted by the iOS devices. So this is a work around which works well, but the error needs to fixed....
Perfect ✌️ Thanks for the great advice
