To recap, the release included 3 new key features: 

Adobe Video World - a GREAT success!Adobe Video World - a GREAT success!Adobe Video World: Premiere Pro masters taught courses at Adobe Video World, from September 12-17. Nick Hauruz, Rich Harrington, Luisa Winters, Abba Shaprio, Jarle Leirpol, and Jeff Greenberg were the featured Premiere Pro presenters. It was the first time the conference has ever been held virtually.

Maybe you've noticed him helping others around the forum. Maybe he's helped you! Neil has been around the community for years now. I just wanted to give him a tremendous amount of credit for giving so much of his time assisting others, especially new editors. 

 

First of all, who is Neil Haugen? Browsing Neil's profile page, you can see that Neil is a pro photographer with years of experience. Neil is very tuned into providing the best possible image for his clients, so naturally, color correction and color grading skills carried over quite well into the video realm.

 

Neil is a wellspring of knowledge when it comes to color. Neil was one of the original gunslingers when Iridas SpeedGrade was first ported over to Adobe. Neil currently writes and contributes content for Mixing Light, well-known in the colorists realm.

 

Motion graphics and titles is also an interest of Neil's and loves to help others with those things in the Essential Graphics panel. Personally, I am so glad Neil has taken this on as the feature set is fairly dense and requires a good deal of experience to master it. Neil has created this neat set of keyboard shortcuts you may find useful here

Check out Neil's website for more helpful articles about Premiere Pro and color in the video realm here. This small article only scratches the surface for all Neil has done for the Premiere Pro community. Once again, thank you Neil, for all your help!

Welcome to Premiere Pro 14.4!

New Update.jpgPremiere Pro 14.4 is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop app. This update includes new features, several bug fixes, and performance improvements. It is recommended for all users.

 

 

New features & enhancements

Scene Edit Detection.pngScene Edit Detection
Use machine learning to automatically detect and add edits where cuts occur in a video.

 

 

HDR.pngHDR for broadcasters
With the new Rec.2100 HLG color space, broadcasters can work with more vibrant and dynamic content.

 

 

Proxies.pngExport with proxies

You can now choose to use proxies while exporting if you want a quick export that doesn't require full resolution media.

 

 

Plugin Enhancements.pngOther enhancements

Premiere Pro now scans VST 3 and AU (Audio Unit) plugins faster. Also, exporting an AAF with Breakout to Mono deselected preserves audio channelization.

 

Fixed issues.png

 

 

Here is what we've fixed in version 14.4

  • Playback does not stop when waveforms expanded with smooth scrolling and multicam view enabled
  • Improved location of licensing information for Stock Audio
  • Improved consistency of contextual menu behavior using search bins
  • Deleting an empty Audio track prevents VoiceOver from being recorded
  • Hardware encoding not available on Mac when encode height is greater than 2196 pixels
  • DNxHR MXF files files exported as non-standard frame size that contain display aspect ratio of 16:9 may play incorrectly in external players
  • Some files that play correctly in QuickTime Player import as audio only
  • Improved ProRes Multicam Playback Performance
  • Twitter 1080p preset now produces higher quality outputs with match source for frame rate and higher bitrate.
  • Cannot log in to Vimeo

Keep the cameras rolling on Twitter @AdobeVideo

We used to have our video content spread out across a few different Twitter handles, but we've restructured with you in mind! By the end of this month, all Twitter conversations will be happening @AdobeVideo.

 

Join us there to stay up-to-date with changes to the application and opportunities to connect with other artists like you! We hold contests, share tutorials, and collect feedback for future improvements. By consolidating the Twitter handles, we're hoping creators of all types will share their work – we can all learn from each other!

Premiere Pro 14.3: app.encoder.bind() is not present, which can cause problems with rendering

Hello all,

We've found that in Premiere Pro 14.3 the app.encoder.bind() function is not correctly exported. This means that, while rendering still works, attempts to connect to the usual render status messages will fail.

 

We apologize for this.

 

The problem is already fixed in Beta builds of Premiere Pro, and will be fixed in our next official release as well.

FAQ: All about Hardware Encoding in Premiere Pro 14.2

With the release of Premiere Pro version 14.2, you can take advantage of dedicated H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) encoders provided by NVIDIA and AMD on Windows-based systems. These encoders can accelerate the encoding (export) performance when using H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) codecs in the export settings.

 

To enable Hardware Encoding, navigate to Export Settings and select H.264 or H.265 as Format.
Under the Video tab scroll down to Encoding Settings and set Performance to Hardware Encoding.

Also, enable Hardware accelerated encoding and decoding from Premiere Pro preferences.

Enable hardware accelerated encodingEnable hardware accelerated encoding

 

For the Hardware Encoding to work, ensure that you have NVENC supporting NVIDIA GPU or AMD VCE/VCN supporting AMD GPU.


Refer to this link to check if your NVIDIA GPU supports H.264/H.265 encoding.

https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-decode-gpu-support-matrix

Please, note that a few of the Pascal, Maxwell and Kepler series NVIDIA GPUs don't support the H.264/H.265 encoding. NVIDIA GPU based Hardware Encoding won't be available on these GPUs.
Though, if you have an Intel CPU with Quick Sync support, then that can be used for Hardware Encoding (but it might not be as fast as NVIDIA based encoding).

 

To check for AMD GPUs that support H.264/H.265 encoding, please refer to this link.
https://www.amd.com/en/products/specifications/graphics

 

Also, please ensure that you have the latest NVIDIA/AMD drivers installed on your system. If after installing the latest driver you are still not able to utilize Hardware Encoding, try doing a clean installation of GPU drivers. Here is how to do it.

NVIDIA

AMD


Here are a few points to remember while using Hardware Encoder.

  • If Premiere Pro noticed any problem with the GPU driver, then the Hardware Encoding option might get disabled. Try updating or doing a clean installation of the GPU driver.
  • Premiere Pro will use only one GPU for Hardware Encoding.
  • AME can use two cards if one is Intel and one is Nvidia in case of Parallel encoding.
  • A higher CPU utilization might be observed during the Export if software decoder is used for the source files (like for MXF, R3D, ProRes) or if multiple non‐GPU accelerated effects are used.
  • Hardware encoder performance may change as per CPU and GPU combination.
  • Some features are not supported for Hardware Encoding like VBR 2 pass and 5k & 8K export for H.264. 
    error.jpg
    If you are getting this error while selecting Hardware Encoding, try changing the above-mentioned export parameters.
  • On macOS, Hardware Encoding is done through Video Toolbox. There is no change on macOS based systems with regards to Hardware Encoding in Premiere Pro 14.2.
    (to be able to use Hardware Encoding on macOS, please ensure to have macOS 10.13.5 or later).

Hope it helps in answering your questions related to the new Hardware Encoding in Premiere Pro v14.2.

 

Thanks,

Sumeet
