Apart from the features listed in What's New in Premiere Pro CC June 2013 (version 7.0), Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC includes many other useful features.
Editing and Timeline-related
You can add or delete a single track with a context menu command. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) in the track header area and select Add Track or Delete Track. This command is in addition to the previous commands Add Tracks and Delete Tracks, which opens a dialog box for adding and deleting multiple tracks.
A Show Tool Tips preference is available in the General Preferences dialog box to turn tool tips on or off.
You can assign a keyboard shortcut to toggle video preview through Mercury Transmit on and off. To do so, select Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts. In the Keyboards Shortcuts dialog box, select Enable Transmit, and assign a keyboard shortcut.
Double-click in the empty area to the right of the Timeline track header buttons. You can increase the size of this target by dragging the header divider to the right.
The Import Into Project option lets you automatically import an exported frame or movie back into the current open project. The following export options are supported:
- Still frame export
- Direct export
- Queued export (using Adobe Media Encoder)
Video tutorial: Import directly into the Project panel
Learn how you can use the Import into Project option to export media assets or clips and sequences to a hard drive and have them show up immediately in the Project panel.
Use the Media Browser to browse through your Premiere Pro project file (.prproj), and access all the bins, sequences, and clips contained in the project. You can also hover-scrub the clips, and import a bin, clip, or sequence.
The existing Copy command (Edit > Copy, Ctrl+C (Windows), Command+C (Mac OS)) is enhanced when used in the Timeline panel. If there are no clips or keyframes selected, and an In Point or Out Point is set, then the range of time between the In point and Out point is copied to the clipboard.
When you are in direct-manipulation mode in the Program Monitor (the mode in which you can drag the clip to position it spatially), you can use the arrow keys to modify the clip's Position property. Each press of an arrow key moves the clip 1 pixel in the corresponding direction. Holding Shift makes each press of an arrow key move the clip 10 pixels.
Hard subclips prevent accidental trimming into media outside the subclip boundaries. Soft subclips allow trimming to any portion of the original master clip's media.
Earlier, subclips had “hard” in- and out-points, limiting flexibility when you needed more head or tail frames for video cross-dissolves or audio crossfades. You can now create subclips with “soft” edits in Premiere Pro, meaning you are no longer limited to the original in- and out-points in the subclips.
For more information, see this video:
The Timeline is customizable, including show/hide markers, effects, through edits and duplicate frame markers.
You can now search markers in the Marker panel. Go to Next/Previous clip marker in the Timeline. The Next/Previous Marker commands now navigate to both sequence and clip markers in the Timeline.
To quickly set the Marker duration, Alt-click (Win) or Option-click (Mac) a Marker icon in the Source Monitor, Program Monitor, or Timeline. A duration of one frame is set. You can adjust the frame duration by clicking and dragging the handles on either sides of the frame.

Transitions and effects
The new Clip Name effect renders the clip name in the program, with position, size, and transparency as specified in the effect's controls. This effect is GPU-accelerated.
The Wipe and Slide video transitions are accelerated by the GPU when you are using a GPU video card that Premiere Pro CC uses for CUDA or OpenCL processing.
Select Sequence > Render Selection to render a preview file for the duration between the In point of the first selected clip to the Out point of the last selected clip.
Dragging the edge of a transition now trims it symmetrically on each side of the cut point. To trim only one side, hold down the Shift key as you drag.
The Crop function in the Effects Control panel (Window > Effect Controls) now has an Edge Feather feature that provides a feathered edge effect to the cropped video. From the Effect Controls panel, click the Edge Feather button under Crop and enter a value for the feather effect.
The edges of the cropped video display a feather effect:
Before and After applying Edge Feather Crop effect
To view the audio waveform for your clip in the Source Monitor panel, click the Drag Audio Only button at the bottom. Click the Drag Video Only button to switch back to the video view.
Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) in a time ruler and select Show Audio Time Units to enable or disable display of audio time units.
The following commands have entries in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box:
- Increase Clip Volume (by 1 dB)
- Increase Clip Volume Many (by 6 dB)
- Decrease Clip Volume (by 1 dB)
- Decrease Clip Volume Many (by 6 dB)
Rectified audio waveform and Standard audio waveform
The Rectified Audio Waveform option is turned on by default. You can turn it off by deselecting Rectified Audio Waveforms in the Timeline panel's pop-up menu.
Rectified Audio Waveform option in the Timeline pop-up menu
- Audio output mapping preferences for Mercury Transmit
- Audio waveforms generated for nested sequences
- Keyboard shortcuts to change pan values
- Ability to open an audio plug-in effect dialog from clips in a sequence
- Ability to toggle audio on and off during scrubbing
Smart rendering improvements
Export performance for QuickTime files such as Pro-Res 422 has been accelerated.
QuickTime audio export with individual tracks
When exporting multi-channel master sequences, the Export Media dialog's Audio Channel setting changes to a pop-up menu that allows you to select audio channels to be included in the export.
16-bit DPX support
16-bit DPX support has been added to Premiere Pro CC.
In the Scratch Disks tab of the Project Settings dialog box and New Project dialog box, there is a Project Auto Save control. You can use this control to specify the location of the Auto-save folder. The default setting is Same As Project.
In the General preferences category, you can select Show Welcome Screen or Open Most Recent from the At Startup pop-up menu. If the preference is set to Open Most Recent, the last project in use is reopened. If the last project in use cannot be located (for example, because it's been deleted), then the Welcome screen is opened.
