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.

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
Exporting content in Windows 11 is messing up colors, and not the way I set it up my project. Grabbing screenshot from video is exporting in weird oversaturated color. Not happy with this update
I have the same issue. After the update exported files have strange colors with a lot of yellow. The new UI design is a nice idea, but why is it so slow compared to the one we had before? Will try to roll back now
Is your media HLG, or from an iPhone? Or is it log-encoded? What?
And have you checked the clip properties in the bin ... if HLG, or if it's log-encoded, you should try the right-click/Modify/Interpret Footage and set the Override to Rec.709.
As it sounds like your color management settings are not properly set. That's new in the 22.x series.
It's recorded in Log with an insta 360 one r one inch module. It worked fine with 22.2 but not with 22.3
Thank you for sharing this tip. I will try it when I'm back at home and upgraded again to 22.3
I have the same/similar issue as SadakoX. Faded-looking (desaturated) in the monitor window. I tried your above override setting, but the result is that the footage became even more desaturated. I believe the footage was shot on an Iphone. Please advise.
I should add that this is new as of the recent update- I have edited hundreds of videos prior. More info: it also applies the same faded look to the essential overlays that I put on the timeline. I have tried starting a new project an importing the footage again and this hasn't helped. For what its worth, the footage shows up just fine when I open it with windows media player from the raw footage file.
I had to roll back both PP and AME to 22.2.0. I was exporting a sequence with a number of nested smaller sequences with video files interspursed in between them. From both PP and the qeued export to AME would hang in the same place every time. (a video file in between 2 nexted sequences) Reloaded 22.2.0 and all worked fine.
Maybe the Adobe team can duplicate this error.
Did you dump the cache before opening the project in 22.3? And allow the new version to build its own cache files?
That's the type of thing that can easily happen if we don't.
That was the first things I tried. (dumping disk cache and database)
I loaded the project on two different Windows machines with 22.3 installed. (Windows 11 and 10) Same exact result. I even pre-rendered all the nested sequences THEN pre-rendered the main sequence. Same result. Rolled both machines back to 22.2 and all worked fine.
When I have time, I'll involve Adobe with a support request but work comes first. I'm leaving this issue for the community to see if anybody can duplicate the issue.
I had this same issue. Premiere would freeze the audio at the exact same point in time (even if I cut out some of it) and only the video would play. Premiere was completely unresponsive and I had to close it via the task manager. I tried rerendering the files in different formats and clear the disk cache. I downgraded to 22.2 and my problems were resolved. This happened during the fifth video that I exported using Premier, four videos worked fine, that fifth kept freezing during the export process as well as experiencing the problem mention above.
Having the exact same problem here. i opened the file i was working on prior to the update and clicked "Play." After a few seconds, my audio cuts out but the playhead keeps going. i see the visuals in the Program monitor. As soon as i click the Stop button... or really, if i do anything from that point... Premiere Pro crashes really hard, and i need to choke it out with Task Manager.
i have tried dumping the cache, but it doesn't solve the issue. Looks like i need to revert the install until Adobe fixes this. (Fingers not crossed.)
Hi Untold Entertainment,
Sorry about that. I suggest you update to 22.3.1. Please let me know if that helps.
Sorry. Please see if updating to 22.3.1 fixes the issue and report back.
I have also had severely frustrating export freeze-ups after the upgrade. Always requires a force quit... To export a hour-long video I had to export it in smaller segments....
Was super excited to integrate Frame.io into our edit review workflow. Unfortuntaely, Adobe has not included users at Universities. Such a shame.
Matt, so sorry to hear that. I have no been paying attention, but the details made my eyes glaze over.
For anyone who's curious, see the FAQ:
Not a big problem, but I can't access tutorials. It seems the permissions on the tutorial folder are getting in the way. Error says scratch disks are unavailable, and will be set to documents folder. If I say yes, I get an empty project.
I've given Premiere all the permissions I can, and gave myself read and write permissions on the tutorial folder, but it didn't help.
iMac 2020, Mac OS 12.3
I am also experiencing this same issue. I have not been able to resolve it.
Its not quite ready yet...
Greetings to the entire Pr/Ae community.
Added a very very useful and long-awaited feature integration and approval of projects within the Pr/Ae program provided by the company Frame.io Tell me, in addition to those functions listed in the introduction to the new function, is it possible to send timelines to the client after the edits are approved without the need to consolidate and copy the material to the hard disk, as we did before?
You're wanting to send timelines with the source media to the client without using the media management tools. Is that right?
Creative Cloud app ... File/Preferences/Apps ... make sure the Auto-update in this tab is unchecked, and the Show Older Apps is checked ... the little icon should be blue.
Now go to the All Apps tab on the left of the Creative Cloud app's center section. Scroll until you see Premiere Pro. There's 3 dots to the far right, that's a menu naturally.
Click on the 3-dots, you get several options. Click the "Other versions" option,
You now have a number of prior releases to select from. You can have one build of each 'major' series installed such as 2020, 2021, 2022.
The one exception is if you go to the beta apps tab, and select a public beta, you can have both a 2022 'shipping' and the 2022 public beta installed at the same time. In fact, you can open a project in the public beta, try something out, close, and open in the shipping version without troubles.
