Try the new Import and Export workflows, now in Premiere Pro (Beta). Along with streamlined new designs for importing media and exporting finished projects, a new header bar connects the different parts of the video editing workflow.

Premiere Pro (Beta)
Install Premiere Pro (Beta) from the Beta apps tab in Creative Cloud Desktop.

We want to make sure these new workflows meet your needs. Explore new Import and Export - and share your feedback while we refine these feature sets during the public Beta.

New header bar

Navigate easily within Premiere Pro

The new header bar provides a centralized navigation within Premiere Pro (Beta), connecting the core phases in the editing process: Import, Edit, and Export.

The current project name is displayed in the center of the header bar. In the Edit mode, task-specific editing workspaces are accessible via a dropdown as well as Quick Export, System Compatibility Report, what's new in the latest build, and a link for providing feedback on the Beta.

The new header bar will be a common design element across the Creative Cloud applications to help users orient themselves more easily within different creative workflows.

Install Premiere Pro (Beta) from the Beta apps tab in Creative Cloud Desktop. Share feedback via the feedback link in the top right corner of Premiere Pro (Beta). We look forward to hearing from you!

New import workflow

An intuitive, media-first approach to creating projects and importing media

The new import experience in Premiere Pro (Beta) is more visual and focused on your media rather than your project settings. You can now visit multiple locations and select media from them. The workflow can be customized to your needs, but the overriding objective is to help you get your media onto the timeline faster.

 The initial Beta presents the basic workflow. New functionality will be added during the public Beta and existing features will be refined based on user feedback.

You can use Import mode to create new projects, starting with the media you want to include, or you can use it to import media into an existing project.

Create a New Project

In Premiere Pro (Beta) home screen, click New Project to open the Import mode. 

  1. In the left hand column, navigate to your media storage location.

  2. Select the storage location. Your media is presented on the Import desktop.

    The import workflow moves from left to right: Start by navigating to your media storage location. Your media opens on the Import desktop, where you can select the clips and other assets, such as audio and graphics, which you want to use. Hover scrub over individual clips to review them.

  3. Select video clips and other media assets to add to your project.

    As you choose your media, the assets are collected in the Selection Tray at the bottom of the window. Premiere Pro chooses the optimal project settings based on the media you have selected.

     For locations you use frequently, click the star next to a storage location to add it to your favorites.

  4. At the bottom of the window, give your project a name and select a location for your project file.

 The initial Beta has import support for video, audio, and image files. Support for other file types will be included when the full feature set is released. Check the Premiere Pro (Beta) forum for updates to this workflow during public Beta.

Import options

With Create New Sequence toggled on, when you click Create, the media in the tray is added directly to a new timeline, in the order they were selected. This is great for shorter projects and you can start editing right away.

If you toggle Create New Sequence off, a new project is created with the selected assets. In this case you can add them to the timeline manually from the Project panel. Depending on your workflow, this may be more suitable for longer projects with lots of assets.

Sequence settings: With the new import workflow, Premiere Pro (Beta) chooses the sequence settings, such as resolution and frame rate, based on the media in your project.

 Currently Premiere Pro (Beta) uses the first clip you selected to assign sequence settings, but we will refine this behavior in future Beta builds. Once your project is open, you can always make changes to your sequence settings, if needed.

Import media into an existing project

In an existing project, choose Import on the top left of the new header bar, and start selecting your media. All media you select are imported into the existing project.

Share feedback via the feedback link in the top right corner of Premiere Pro (Beta).

New export workflow

Streamlined export based on your video destination

The new export workflow streamlines the process of delivering completed videos by focusing on the destinations of the content. Optimized render settings for popular social platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are presented. Advanced settings are easily accessed for customizing exports. 

Exporting video projects

  1. Select the sequence you want to export.

  2. Choose Export from the new header bar at the top of Premiere Pro (Beta) to open the new Export workspace.

    The export workflow moves from left to right. Start by selecting a destination for your video from the choices in the left-hand column, such as YouTube, Vimeo, or your local drive (Media File).

    Premiere Pro (Beta) presents optimized export settings based on your destination. 

  3. Accept the default settings or open the dropdown menus to access advanced export options to customize your output.

     While individual settings are available for all export parameters, Match Source presets are often the best option. These are adaptive presets which use the same frame size, frame rate, and so on, as your source sequence. Choose the High Bitrate preset for the highest quality.

    Choose export presets from the dropdown menu
    Choose export presets from the dropdown menu

     You can set multiple destinations if you want to create more than one version of your video.

  4. Click Export.

Try out the new Export workflow yourself. Share feedback via the feedback link in the top right corner of Premiere Pro (Beta).
