Feature summary | Premiere Pro (February 2022 release)

New features in Premiere Pro 22.2 dramatically accelerate key editorial workflows, including Remix, which uses Adobe Sensei AI to intelligently retime songs to a specified duration, and updated Speech to Text, which can now be used offline generating accurate transcriptions up to 3x faster.

Speech to Text for offline use - up to 3x faster

Speech to Text on-device allows creators to work without an internet connection, leveraging the power of their CPU.

On current hardware, transcriptions are 2x faster, and up to 3x faster on Intel Core i9 and Apple M1 systems.

 Currently, Speech to Text in Premiere Pro supports 13 languages.  The English language pack is included with the Premiere Pro installation. You can install other languages packs individually, as needed. Language packs are approximately 650MB.

Remix in Premiere Pro

Powered by Adobe Sensei

Use Remix to intelligently retime songs so that your music matches your videos. Instead of painstaking razor cuts and crossfades, let Remix do the work for you, turning hours-long music editing chores into a task that can be done in seconds. 

Powered by Adobe Sensei, Remix is a proven technology from Adobe Audition where it has had rave reviews. 

To use Remix in Premiere Pro, apply the new Remix tool to sections of audio. Remix analyzes the patterns and dynamics in songs to create new arrangements that match the duration you need. Use the Customize sliders to try out different mixes.

For more information, see Remix audio in Premiere Pro.

More GPU-accelerated effects

Support for MacBook Pro notch

In fullscreen mode, Premiere Pro 22.2 automatically adjusts UI elements to account for the notch in 2021 MacBook Pro models.

Format support

Premiere Pro 22.2 includes support for footage from the new Canon EOS R5 C camera.

Currently in Premiere Pro (Beta)

Auto Tone

Auto Tone uses new technology to apply intelligent color corrections in the Lumetri Color panel.

Auto Tone adjustments are reflected in the Lumetri sliders so that you can fine-tune the results or simply use Auto Tone to guide your colorwork as you become familiar with the Lumetri tools.

When it is released, Auto Tone will replace the current Auto adjustment button, providing more sophisticated color correction, with better results, with a single click.

Try Auto Tone in the Premiere Pro (Beta).

Improvements for new Import mode

Improvements to the new import mode include sorting options, marquee selection for choosing media, keyboard navigation, a playhead for scrubbing thumbnails, the ability to copy files on import, and the option to import both clips and whole folders. You can also specify Bins (folders) to import files into.

The Project name is now located at the top of the Import panel, providing a clear starting point for new projects. Enter a project name right in the title bar and press return to create a new project. From there, you can continue in the new Import mode to select files and folders for the project or move straight to Edit mode and assemble your assets using the existing Media Browser workflow.
