2017 release of Adobe Premiere Pro CC

The 2017 release of Premiere Pro CC (November 2016) comes with a host of exciting new features. Collaborate effectively using Team Projects (Beta), a hosted service that lets editors and motion graphics artists work collaboratively in projects within Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, and Prelude CC, allowing concurrent changes to happen on a single project seamlessly. Customize your text, position, background and font color, and use the new Edge Color feature to ensure that your open captions are easy to read on any background. Expand your creativity with enhancements to the Lumetri Color tool set. New color pickers allow you to make immediate, intuitive selections directly on the video itself when working with HSL secondaries and white balance. New VR support expands on the powerful virtual-reality features and now offers features such as auto detection of VR media, and metadata options.

Collaborating using Team Projects (Beta)

New in this release of Premiere Pro 2017 | November 2016

This release introduces Team Projects (Beta), a hosted service for CC enterprise users that lets editors and motion graphics artists work collaboratively in projects within Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, and Prelude CC. This service adds deep collaboration features such as version history and smart conflict resolution. Post-production professionals can share their edits and get the latest changes from collaborators, allowing concurrent changes to happen on a single project – which is powerful for workflows where visual effects and motion graphics are being done in After Effects at the same time while the project is being refined in Premiere Pro.

New VR support

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

Introduced earlier in 2016, the VR workflow in Premiere Pro now offers more improvements. You can work with stitched equirectangular video to show field-of-view, enabling you to replicate viewing experiences while you edit your content. New VR support expands on the powerful virtual-reality features that are part of Premiere Pro.

Enhanced support for VR Workflows

Premiere Pro now auto-detects whether your VR media is monoscopic, stereoscopic over/under, or stereoscopic right/left, so you can focus on your work and let Premiere Pro determine the proper VR settings behind the scenes. Also, you can now choose to hide the VR controls while in VR mode for a more immersive editing and playback experience. When exporting and sharing your video, you can easily add a metadata flag to your content so that VR-capable video players, such as YouTube or Facebook, automatically recognize that your content is 360-degree, giving viewers the full virtual reality experience.

Visual keyboard shortcut mapping

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

Take the guesswork out of keyboard-driven editing and work faster with new visual keyboard shortcut mapping. Learn commonly used shortcuts with the default shortcuts map, or customize your own keyboard optimized for the way you want to work.

Enhanced open captions

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

Expand your audience with captions and subtitles, whether to enliven silent auto play video previews on Facebook, generate versions for different languages, or improve accessibility for hearing impaired viewers with closed captions. Easily create, fine-tune, and version captions, including tasks like text manipulation and altering duration and location right in the timeline. 

You can now create Open Captions as easily as creating closed captions. Customize your text, position, background and font color, and use the Edge Color feature to ensure that your captions are easy to read on any background. Adjust the duration and location of your captions right in the timeline, making it faster to create captions from scratch and adjust them to fit your storyline.

To learn more, see Open Captioning.

Refined Lumetri color tools

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

The color toolset in Premiere Pro is ever-expanding, allowing editors to work deeply with color. Expand your creativity with enhancements to the Lumetri Color tool set. New color pickers allow you to make immediate, intuitive selections directly on the video itself when working with HSL secondaries and white balance. Premiere Pro now delivers the best HDR viewing experience for your audience with support for HDR10 metadata workflows, enabling editing of HDR10 and output for new HDR-enabled TVs and displays.

Expanded Destination Publishing – now including Publish to Behance

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

Sharing your projects via destination publishing allows you to render and share videos to popular web locations from directly within Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder CC. With the addition of Publish to Behance, you can publish your videos directly to your Behance portfolio, the world’s largest creative community. Whether you’re posting to your favorite social media site such as Behance, YouTube, Facebook or Twitter, or want to share your productions privately to Creative Cloud, destination publishing gives you a fast delivery system to meet your needs.

To learn more, see Behance Settings.

Live Text Templates

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

You can now use Live Text Templates to include dynamic graphics with video content in Premiere Pro. Since this helps you to directly edit the text within those graphics, you don't have to work directly inside After Effects. Live Text Templates are ideal for adding visual production value to any type of recurring content, such as tutorial videos, web series, broadcast graphics, and more. Using Live Text Templates, an After Effects user can create an animated lower third, intro or outro, and choose which attributes are editable in Premiere Pro, ensuring both visual consistency and flexibility.

With enhanced Live Text Templates, editors can harness the power of After Effects directly within Premiere Pro to streamline their branded graphics workflow. Thanks to a new file format, Live Text Templates can be used without requiring an After Effects license (After Effects can be installed as a trial version or in render-only/non-royalty-bearing mode). Live Text Templates provide enhanced Typekit support, so any missing fonts can be automatically synced in your project.

Support for extra file formats

New in this release of Premiere Pro CC  2017 | November 2016

Adobe Premiere Pro comes with an array of support toward a wide variety of file formats. You can load your files and start working, even during ingest regardless of whether you work with native source file formats, or lightweight, auto-linking proxies. Along with more efficient ingest of camera media, this version also provides for native QT DNxHD / DNxHR export.
