Use this page to understand the end-of-life and end-of-support policies for SpeedGrade CC.

What is being announced?

On August 22, 2017 Adobe stopped development for SpeedGrade CC.  We encourage SpeedGrade CC users to consider the powerful, comprehensive Lumetri Color tools inside Premiere Pro.  You can export looks created in any version of SpeedGrade CC as .looks or as 3D LUTS, which are fully supported by the Lumetri Color tools in Premiere Pro and After Effects. 

What is the migration plan for the users of SpeedGrade CC?

We encourage SpeedGrade CC users to consider the innovative Lumetri Color tools inside Premiere Pro. You can export looks created in any version of SpeedGrade CC as .looks or as 3D LUTS, which are fully supported by the Lumetri tools in Premiere Pro and After Effects. 

For more information on Lumetri color tools, see Change the look of your clips.

The native format for SpeedGrade which is .ircp can still be used to open projects using SpeedGrade CC 2015. You can render content to a range of formats including .DPX for uncompressed output and H.264 for distribution. You can also save creative intention from any shot in a SpeedGrade project by exporting Looks to either a .look file or a range of 3D LUTs including the popular .cube. Both Premiere Pro CC 2017 and Photoshop CC 2017 recognize all of these formats. The .cube format is used in almost every product in the industry supporting 3D LUTs, including Nuke, Baselight, select AJA hardware and many more. 

Can the users of SpeedGrade CC 2015 continue to use the software?

Yes. SpeedGrade CC 2015 is not made available to new customers; however users who have an existing license can continue to use it.

What about the Creative Cloud Learn content associated with SpeedGrade CC 2015? Would it continue to be made available for the benefit of those still using legacy software?

Similar to other discontinued products, core product information and documentation remains available from Help & Learn pages. 

What is the workflow for using SpeedGrade projects in the future?

You can continue to use the native format for SpeedGrade, which is .ircp to open projects using SpeedGrade CC 2015. Users can render content to a range of formats including .DPX for uncompressed output and H.264 for distribution. You can also save creative intention from any shot in a SpeedGrade project by exporting Looks to either a .look file or a range of 3D LUTs including the popular .cube. Premiere Pro CC 2017 and Photoshop CC 2017 recognize both these formats. The .cube format is used in almost every product in the industry supporting 3D LUTs, including Nuke, Baselight, select AJA hardware and many more. 

What happens to projects that have been using Direct Link between Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade?

Projects that use the Direct-Link functionality are based on the Premiere Pro file format, which is .pproj. These files can still be opened using SpeedGrade CC. You can extract looks in the same way as stated above for the .ircp format. 

To repurpose any projects that use Direct-Link functionality, you can open these using Premiere Pro CC 2014. Also, looks that are present in SpeedGrade and the Direct Link engine are fully functional inside earlier versions of Premiere Pro CC 2014 which can be installed from the CC installer by searching for earlier versions. 

Бележка:

This above-mentioned workflow has been used ever since the support toward DirectLink functionality was dropped in 2015.
