The November 2015 release of Premiere Pro CC delivers UltraHD and HDR format support, powerful slow-motion capabilities, improved integration with CC libraries and Adobe Stock, enhanced touch capabilities, and many other features that help you create compelling video content.
Optical Flow technology interpolates new in-between frames for time remapping to produce better-looking and smoother slow motion from conventional footage. The new Optical Flow option is now available in addition to the two existing options: Frame Sampling and Frame Blending.
All the three options are now available through:
Additionally, you can interpolate frames for export to a different frame rate by choosing the Optical Flow option from within the Export Settings dialog.

Premiere Pro now supports Adobe Stock videos. A new asset type, Videos, has been added to the Libraries panel. From the Libraries panel, you can browse to the Adobe Stock website to search for and download videos.
In this release, when you purchase an asset (image or video) after trying it out, you do not have to replace the image in sequences in which you edited the asset. The original, full-resolution, non-watermarked content is automatically replaced for you in the Project panel and in any sequences in which you edited the asset.
Premiere Pro now has enhanced support for UltraHD and HDR (high dynamic range) formats to include DNxHR, HEVC (H.265), XAVC Long GOP, and OpenEXR. You can now edit and deliver HDR video that captures and preserves greater detail in shadows and highlights.
The Lumetri Color panel now includes a High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode that helps you work with video that shows rich details even in the highlights and shadows.
The HDR controls are disabled by default and are enabled when you toggle the High Dynamic Range setting in the setting menu of the Lumetri Color panel.
To learn more, see Color Workflows
A new option in the Lumetri Scopes panel switches the display to read High Dynamic Range (HDR) data in HDR signals. When switching to HDR, the scope scale displays a range from 0-10000 (Nits) / 0-100 (Percent). The scale is logarithmic to allow the display of high Nit values in the user interface.

Premiere Pro now supports import of PQ JPEG2000 MXF files, bringing them into the HDR working space of Premiere Pro, and preserving overbrights. You can adjust these overbrights in the Color panel using the new HDR mode, and view them in the Scopes panel.
Now you can use your touch devices such as Microsoft Surface Pro and Apple trackpad to edit your videos using touch and gestures. You can use touch and gestures to scrub clips, mark in and out points, drag clips to the Timeline, and more.
On Mac notebooks that support the haptic feedback feature, Premiere Pro provides haptic feedback when clip snapping is toggled on in the Timeline. You receive haptic feedback via the trackpad when snapping two clips together, or when snapping a clip to a Timeline marker.
The new Start screen provides you with a more usable and intuitive experience when you launch Premiere Pro. The Start screen includes Recent, Libraries, and Sync Settings tabs to help you accomplish common tasks more easily. Cards at the bottom display content such as trial period countdown, subscription offers, Adobe Stock and Library assets, and so on.
The new Start screen is currently available only in English, French, German, and Japanese.
Recent tab: Displays the most recently opened Premiere Pro projects. You can also click the New button to create a new project, or the Open button to browse to a project.
Libraries tab: Displays a list of your Creative Cloud Libraries. When you click a Libraries card in the engagement stream, that public library is downloaded to your computer and added to your CC Library panel.
Sync Settings tab: You can use the Sync Now option to sync settings using your currently logged in account, or you can sync settings from a different account.
To skip the Start screen at start-up and to instead open the most recent project, set the At Startup option in the General Preferences dialog box to Open Most Recent.
The Open Project command, when selected while a project is currently open, opens the operating system's Open Project dialog box by default. To have the new Start screen open instead of the Open Project dialog box, set the When Opening a Project option in the General Preferences dialog box to Show Start Screen.

A panel frame is now called a panel group in the panel tab (options) menu. You can choose to present Panels in a panel group in a stacked state or in the traditional tabbed state. Stacked panels are expanded and collapsed with a single click of the mouse on the panel header, or a tap of the finger when using a touch surface.
Premiere Pro now includes two new default workspaces: Titles and All Panels. The Titles workspace presents the Titling tools in a right-side column of stacked panels, with the Title Designer in the same frame as the Program Monitor. Every panel is open in the All Panels workspace.
You can now toggle the application title bar on/off with the Cmd/Ctrl + \ keyboard shortcut. Toggling it off provides more room to display the application's user interface.
The Thumbnails show effects applied setting in the tab menu of the Project panel enables or disables the rendering of master clip effects into the poster frame of the thumbnail. (Default: on)
This setting applies to thumbnails in both the Icon and the List view.
This setting affects only the thumbnail display in the Project panel. If a clip has a master clip effect applied, the effect is always included in exports or instances of that clip in a sequence.
You can now create titles in Indic script, including Hindi, Tamil, Punjabi, and more.
To learn more, see Creating and editing titles.
The monitor's Multicam view now includes camera pages. You can set any number of cameras to display per page, from 1 to the maximum number available in the multi-camera source sequence.
With this feature, you can divide a large number of cameras into smaller groups; this improves playback performance and increases the size of the multi-camera sources.

To conform HDR media to SDR, choose Effects panel > Video Effects > Video > SDR Conform. SDR conform is also available in the Effects tab of the Export settings.

Premiere Pro can now automatically shift the overlapping track items during a ripple delete. An overlapping track item is one that originates to the left of the trim point (that is, the start of the gap), and continues past the trim point.
To enable this feature, in the Preferences dialog box (Edit > Preferences > Trim), select the Shift clips that overlap trim point during ripple trimming check box.

The Markers panel now has the option to display sequence timecode for your clip markers instead of clip timecode. This helps you to accurately point to markers in the timeline.
To learn more, see Working with markers
The Overlay Settings dialog box now includes Sound Timecode and Sound Roll values. These values display in the monitor overlays when toggled on.

In previous releases, exported EDLs truncated long clip and tape names down to eight characters. In this release, a new option, File_32, has been added to the EDL Export Settings dialog box. When checked, this option exports clip and tape names up to 32 characters, making it easier for you to identify clips and tapes with long names.
Premiere Pro's J2K exporter now includes a 12-bit PQ option. When you select the RGB 4:4:4 12-Bit PQ option from the Chroma and Depth pop-up menu, a new drop-down list allows you to select the Color Space: Rec709, Rec2020, or DCI P3.
