Learn how to take advantage of high-resolution formats from the latest cameras to achieve the best possible picture quality in Premiere Pro.

Adobe Premiere Pro offers thorough native media support, meaning you can edit virtually all of the major video, image, and audio formats natively without waiting.

In this video you’ll see how easy it is to work with several formats within one Premiere Pro project: ARRI AMIRA, Canon EOS C300 and EOS-1D C, GoPro Hero, LongG on a Panasonic, RED media, and Sony F55. You can pretty much disregard the format you’re working with when cutting with Premiere Pro.

  • Enhanced format support: Premiere Pro enables you to work with the vast majority of formats natively — including 4K, 5K, and 6K RED media; XAVC; ProRes; and DNxHD — without transcoding or file rewrapping. Premiere Pro supports Sony SStP and Canon RAW, and also CinemaDNG formats. You can mix formats on a single timeline and still expect the best-quality performance on a well-configured system — that is, a multicore CPU and modern GPU with a minimum 1 GB of video RAM and high disk throughput.
  • Enhanced graphics performance: The Mercury Playback Engine takes full advantage of supported GPUs so you get smoother playback without rendering. It support the Intel Iris architecture found in current Apple MacBook Pro machines as well as Microsoft Windows configurations.
  • Debayering with supported GPUs: GPU-based debayering for CinemaDNG and RED media is also supported, providing significant performance enhancements when you work with those formats and a supported GPU.
  • ARRI AMIRA workflow: If you work with footage from the ARRI AMIRA camera, you can take advantage of a powerful workflow where LUTs created in-camera are automatically applied as Master Clip effects on ingest.
