Powered by Adobe Sensei, Auto Reframe applies intelligent reframing to your footage, keeping the action inside the frame for different aspect ratios such as square, vertical, and 16:9 video.
Premiere Pro provides robust native support and improved performance for widely used formats, like H264, HEVC, and ProRes – including ProRes HDR – on both macOS and Windows.
The System Compatibility report now checks for more drivers to make sure your system is primed for editing with Premiere Pro.
You can now easily optimize your content for different social media and mobile viewing platforms. Instead of manually cropping and keyframing footage, Auto Reframe automates the process using Adobe Sensei AI technology.
Use Auto Reframe to reframe sequences for square, vertical, and cinematic 16:9, or for cropping high-resolution footage.
Auto Reframe can be applied as an effect to individual clips or to entire sequences. Graphics and other edits are maintained within the new aspect ratio.
For more information, see Automatically reframe clips and sequences for different social media channels.
You can now rename shape and clip layers inside the Essential Graphics panel by clicking the name and editing the resulting text field. You can then commit your new name by pressing Enter or clicking away from the text field.
Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects now include the option for multi-line text fields. Instead of requiring a separate text field for each line, you can now add and edit multiple lines of text in Premiere Pro when using templates.
Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects can now include drop-down menus, simplifying the workflow in Premiere Pro. Use the controls in the drop-down list to choose different styles or graphic elements when customizing your motion graphics.

Premiere Pro now includes additional keyboard shortcuts for working with layers, including reordering layers, adding text, and selecting layers. For example, you can now use familiar Ctrl + Shift or Cmd + Shift with square brackets to send layers to the back or bring them to the front.

You can now add up to 15 decibels of gain to audio clips. This provides more headroom for your audio, without requiring additional amplification effects and matches the gain feature in Adobe Audition.
Previously, the limit for adding audio gain was 6 decibels.
The maximum speed for time remapping has been increased to 20,000 percent, allowing users to create time-lapse footage from very long source clips.

In order to ensure high-quality content for Adobe Stock, the Render at Max Bit Depth check box is enabled for the ProRes presets. The H.264 presets are set to VBR 2-pass. The VBR 2-pass option generally provides higher quality. This preset also disables hardware encoding, which optimizes quality but takes longer to encode.
For more information, see Supported file formats.
Export HDR content with HDR10 metadata to ensure your content looks its best on HDR-enabled displays.
To add this metadata, choose High10 (H.264) or Main10 (HEVC) from the Profile menu under Encoding Settings. Enable Rec. 2020 Color Primaries, High Dynamic Range, and Include HDR10 Metadata checkboxes.
