Hello there Premiere Pro Community! It's June and that means the sun's out and summer is here. I hope you have a chance to get outside and enjoy the weather now we have fewer restrictions on getting out and about in most places.
Have you attended any of our end of the month virtual gatherings, the Adobe Video Community Meetups? The content has been great. I advise you to attend this June 30th.
Premiere Pro 15.2 was released since the last community digest. There are a few issues you should be aware of. Just scroll down to be more aware of those. It may help you troubleshoot. Of course, if you have any issues, just create new post. Happy editing!
Let's take a look back at May and ahead to the rest of June 2021.

Top Troubleshooting threads
Issues with 15.2? Here are a few:
UI issues while editing: This can be due to audio in nested sequences. Remove the audio from nested sequences and your UI issues return to normal. See this thread for details.
- Screen tearing and freezing on playback: This can happen in certain laptops that contain a discrete GPU: for workarounds see this thread.
- M1 Mac and Black Screen issues: I have heard some complaints that the LUT popularized in this thread is no longer working on M1 Macs. You get a black screen. Change hardware acceleration, as indicated in this User Voice thread to work around the error for the Intel version. You cannot use the Beta version and the LUT at this time.
Cool New How-to Content
Here are some great new "How To" technique threads, videos, and other stuff you may find interesting. If you have a cool tutorial or technique to share with the community, please drop Kevin a message.

Premiere Pro 15.2 (May 2021 release) is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop app. This update includes numerous bug fixes, several new features, and performance improvements.
- This update is recommended for all users.
- If you are experiencing any issues, please create a new post explaining your issue so we can help.

Caption items in the Captions track now have the same label color options as other items on the timeline.
Info about this feature is here.
Edit video files containing embedded captions more intuitively. Caption items are linked to their associated video and audio clips, making it easier to fine-tune edits and keep everything in sync on the Timeline. More info here.
Support for DirectX12 display technology on Windows
DirectX now replaces OpenGL as the default display rendering technology for Premiere Pro, providing improved stability. DirectX also supports native High Dynamic Range (HDR) playback for Premiere Pro with HDR10-capable monitors and a DirectX-compatible GPU. More info here.
