Smart rendering improvements
Use smart rendering to speed up exports by taking advantage of matching codecs and sequence previews. Smart rendering improvements in this release provide greater reliability and faster exports for supported formats.

Work faster with HDR footage by creating HDR proxies of your media. Generate smaller medium- and high-resolution copies of your files in the correct color space automatically. HDR proxies match the originals visually and offer improved performance while editing.
To create proxies in Premiere Pro, right-click on your media in the Project panel and choose Proxy > Create Proxies. Then select your preferred format. Adobe Media Encoder generates proxies in the background so you can continue editing. Once your proxies are ready, Premiere Pro automatically swaps them in, providing better performance while you edit. You can easily toggle back and forth between the proxies and your source files, for example, to check for quality, crop in on high-resolution footage, or color grading.
