What's new in Premiere Pro

July 2021 release (version 15.4)

Premiere Pro 15.4 introduces Speech to Text, an integrated and automated workflow for adding and customizing captions, native support for Apple M1 devices, tools for stylizing and editing text, and more.

Speech to Text

The industry’s only integrated NLE solution for captioning videos, includes automated transcription, a dedicated Captions track on the Timeline, design tools for customizing captions, and a full range of export options.

Transcript editing tools

Review and edit transcripts easily, with tools like search and replace, insert pauses, the ability to distinguish between speakers, and an option to export text files from the Transcript panel.

Generate captions automatically

Powered by Adobe Sensei, Speech to Text transforms transcripts into caption items on the timeline, matching the pacing of your dialog. If needed, you can apply broadcast captioning presets or create your own.

Native support for Apple M1 computers

For macOS users, everything is faster on the Apple M1 - from launch times to export, and editing is buttery smooth. Premiere Pro allows you to take advantage of the latest hardware advances.

New titling and caption styling tools

Even more tools for stylizing text and captions, including multiple shadows for text, text background enhancements, and expanded font substitution for 28 different international alphabets.

Upgrade Legacy Titles

Convert Legacy Titles into Source Graphics within your Premiere Pro projects. Source Graphics are displayed in the Project panel where you can track and sort them like any other project item. 

 

Color improvements

Tetrahedral LUT interpolation offers more precise interpretation of color information for better consistency when grading difficult footage. Now in public Beta, a new colorized Vectorscope provides more detailed image analysis for color grading.

Faster Team Projects

Premiere Pro offers faster saving for Team Projects, thanks to a lean new project file structure. Now in public Beta, progressive project loading means you can start working faster after opening existing projects and improved media relinking makes it easier to keep local assets organized.

Label colors and clip names

Customize label colors and clip names on the timeline with the option of  limiting the change to the current sequence, or applying the change to your source media – helpful for editors working on shared Productions.

Faster Scene Edit Detection

Thanks to new optimizations, Scene Edit Detection, powered by Adobe Sensei, is up to 2x faster on macOS and Windows, and 3X faster on Apple M1 devices

Automatic audio device switching

Premiere Pro on Windows now detects changes and switches automatically when you swap out audio devices, such as interfaces, microphones, or headphones.

Discontinued CUDA and OpenCL support on macOS

As macOS moves towards modern Metal-based graphics, we are discontinuing our support for CUDA and OpenCL graphics.
