Premiere Pro (Beta) introduces a new import and export workflow, along with a unified header bar
The new designs aim to streamline key workflows in Premiere Pro and make it easier to navigate between them. Our goal is to ensure the new workflows improve your video editing experience. Install the Premiere Pro (Beta) today and share your feedback with the Premiere Pro team.
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.
We haven’t announced a release date. Our focus is on ensuring the new workflows meet our users’ needs.
Install the Premiere Pro Beta from the Beta tab in Creative Cloud Desktop.
Share feedback via the feedback link in the top right corner of Premiere Pro Beta.
The new import workflow streamlines the process of creating new projects or adding media to existing ones. It is a more visual, media-first workflow designed to make it easier to find your assets and get onto the timeline faster.
Yes. The new workflow allows you to visit multiple sources as you collect the assets you want to use in your project.
Double-clicking thumbnails for a full-size preview is not enabled in the initial public Beta. This is a feature we hope to add soon.
This feature is not enabled in the initial public Beta. The ability to set in- and out-points before importing is on the list of features we hope to add soon.
Not in the current Beta build. Sorting clips (e.g. according to duration, or date or other attributes) is on the list of features we hope to add soon.
In the thumbnail view, Time codes are truncated, making it easier to scan your thumbnails quickly. To see the full Timecode, you can hover over the clip thumbnail, or click the List view icon in the top right corner of the Import window.
Navigate to the drive or folder you want to favorite and click the star icon at the end of the file path. The file path is displayed in the top left corner above the Import Window.
You can also favorite (or unfavorite) drives and folders within the Media Browser when your project is open.
No. Currently if you include Media from a removable drive in your import, Premiere Pro maps that media to the removable drive. The ability to copy media from removable drivers is a feature we hope to add soon.
Create sequence allows you to turn your selections into a sequence. With Create sequence toggled on, when you create the new project, Premiere Pro opens with the Timeline pre-populated with your media.
If your frames are displaying incorrectly, this is likely due to your sequence settings. To change sequence settings, such as frame size, frame rate, color space etc., select the Timeline panel and choose Sequence > Sequence Settings.
With the initial public Beta, sequence settings are determined by the first clip you select for import. In future builds we plan to refine this functionality.
You can change the current sequence settings from the Sequence menu. If needed, you can create an additional new sequence within the open project.
No. We are considering adding this capability.
The new header bar provides a centralized navigation within Premiere Pro, connecting the core phases in the video editing process: Import, Edit, and Export – and direct access to frequently-used features like Quick Export, System Compatibility Report, and editing workspaces.
In Editing mode, you can access editing workspaces (such as editing, audio, Lumetri, etc.) via the dropdown menu on the right-hand side of the header bar. You can also access workspaces from the Window menu or use your own keyboard shortcuts.
The System Compatibility Report flags issues with system drivers which can impact stability and performance. If there is an issue, the System Compatibility Report will appear in the header bar beside the Quick Export icon. You can access the System Compatibility Report at any time via the Help menu.
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 and advanced settings are easily accessed.
Yes. Toggle on all of the versions you want to export. Select each location to access its export settings.
Not in the initial public Beta. Background rendering is on the list of features we plan to implement in the new export workflow.
All the Premiere Pro export presets are still available in the new workflow. Open the Preset dropdown menu and choose Preset Manager to see the full list of export presets.
In the Preset manager, you can set favorites to determine which presets are displayed in the dropdown menu (and in Quick Export).
Click the three dots on the right of the Preset dropdown menu and choose “Save preset” from the menu.
You can export custom presets from Premiere Pro 15.2 as .EPR files. To do this, hold down Cmd +Alt (Windows) or Ctrl + Opt (macOS) and click the Save Preset icon in the Premiere Pro 15.2 Export Settings. In Premiere Pro (Beta), open the Preset manager and click the Import icon at the bottom of the window. You can also click on the options menu (three dots) next to the Preset dropdown menu and choose Import presets.
You can also export custom presets from Media Encoder 15.2 and re-import them with Media Encoder (Beta); the presets will appear automatically in Premiere Pro (Beta).
It is not necessary to automatically upload your exports. If you prefer to preview your video on device beforehand, you can export platform-optimized videos locally and upload manually afterwards. Another option is to upload privately and review the video on the platform.
Currently you can export directly to Behance, Creative Cloud, Facebook, Adobe Stock, YouTube, Vimeo, FTP sites. To export for other platforms, export locally (Media File) and upload manually. We will consider adding other platforms for direct export if there is sufficient demand, so let us know during the public Beta!
