Select HEVC from the Format drop-down under Export Settings to enable this option. Then under the Video tab, go to Encoding Settings. If the system supports hardware encoding, the Performance field is set to Hardware Encoding. Set the profile level to Main 10. Setting it to Software Encoding will disable hardware encoding, and Adobe Premiere Pro won't use hardware to encode the media.


The minimum OS version required for this feature to be enabled is macOS Big Sur (version 11).

On Apple M1 systems, HEVC HLG 4:2:0 10-bit encoding still encodes via software.

Whats-new-pr-may-2022-10x-faster-hvec.jpg.img.jpgExports for 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC footage are up to 10x faster for supported AMD GPUs on Windows.

Select HEVC from the Format drop-down under Export Settings to enable this option. Then under the Video tab, go to Encoding Settings. If the GPU card supports HW encoding, the Performance field will be set to Hardware Encoding. Set the profile level to Main 10. Setting it to Software Encoding will disable hardware encoding and Adobe Premiere Pro won't use AMD hardware to encode the media. 


If you have an AMD GPU card that supports 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC encode on your Windows machine, you will be able to use this feature.


HEVC 10-bit encoding is enabled in Navi10 and up. Consumer: RX 5XXX, RX 6XXX, Pro: W 5XXX, W 6XXX. The minimum driver version required is 21.10.1. Its corresponding Windows Driver Store version for Win 10/11 is 30.0.13025.1000.


Improved QuickTime screen recording playback
Whats-new-pr-may-2022-improve-screenrecording-playback.jpg.img.jpgWork more easily with screen captures, thanks to smoother playback and scrubbing of QuickTime screen recordings in this release of Premiere Pro.

 

 

 

Smart rendering improvements
Whats-new-pr-may-2022-smart-render-improvement.jpg.img.jpgUse smart rendering to speed up exports by taking advantage of matching codecs and sequence previews. Smart rendering improvements in this release provide greater reliability and faster exports for supported formats.


For more information on smart rendering, see Smart rendering.

 

HDR Proxies
Whats-new-pr-may-2022-hdr-proxis.jpg.img.jpgWork faster with HDR footage by creating HDR proxies of your media. Generate smaller medium- and high-resolution copies of your files in the correct color space automatically. HDR proxies match the originals visually and offer improved performance while editing.

 

To create proxies in Premiere Pro, right-click on your media in the Project panel and choose Proxy > Create Proxies. Then select your preferred format. Adobe Media Encoder generates proxies in the background so you can continue editing. Once your proxies are ready, Premiere Pro automatically swaps them in, providing better performance while you edit. You can easily toggle back and forth between the proxies and your source files, for example, to check for quality, crop in on high-resolution footage, or color grading.


For more information, see Create proxies.
-----------------

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.

For This Statement:

Work more easily with screen captures, thanks to smoother playback and scrubbing of QuickTime screen recordings in this release of Premiere Pro.

 

Does this refer to VBR improvement for decoding?  or what does it mean in practice?

Hi @FlyingFourFun ,

 

Thanks for asking. The current improvement is focused on removing glitches with screen recordings(Quick Time/iphones etc.). Like in the following threads :-
https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-discussions/my-premiere-project-quot-glitches-quot-when-...
https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-discussions/quicktime-screen-recording-glitches-in-premi...


Ideally, Premiere Pro should handle variable framerates without any issue now. 
If you still find any issues with any such file, please let us know. We will take it up on priority.

Please also share the source media(screen recordings) causing such issues. 

 

Thanks,
Mayjain

I am AMAZED by smart rendering in this update. No joke, for me at least 8 times faster, but probably more like 10.

All 22.3 and 22.4 Versions including this release are crashing without saving my current project if I don't take the time to open my sequences first in Source Monitor first.  For example if I just double click a sequence on a timeline in order to open the sequence at that point then BOOM gone Premiere Pro app no longer open and any work since the last save is lost.   This also happened in Premiere Pro 22.3.X

 

Im excited about the new features but wish that the platform would not do these crashes because it is very frustrating.

 

I am on a 2020 fully loaded iMac 128gb Ram 16G Radeon Pro 5700 graphics card and i9 10-core processor.

 

If there is a better more effective place to report problems like this Im not sure what it is.  My previous post about this issue seems to have been ignored so I am replying here hoping someone will see it.  Thank you

Even just Command-Shift-K to cut all tracks in the timeline is causing an abrupt crash without saving.

 

Can anyone tell me if they are also experiencing these crashes?

Hi, 

Any chance you can get rid of the god forsaken abortion that is the head bar taking up valuable verticle realestate? 
I imagine this is something that would require only 3 seconds to code. 

Thanks.
