Adobe Unleashes Several Updates for Premiere Pro, After Effects, SpeedGrade and Other Video Apps

Creative Cloud

Adobe has updated Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, SpeedGrade CC, Prelude CC and Media Encoder CC. Notably, this is the fourth update to Premiere Pro CC since the application made its debut earlier this year. The new updates add several new features and bug fixes.

Brief listings of the new features below.

  • Adobe Premiere Pro CC adds Open CL performance enhancements, media management improvements and editing enhancements for even greater workflow efficiency, and delivers more intuitive voiceover recording. (Full list here.)
  • After Effects CC offers customizable output of file name and path templates, improved snapping behavior, enhanced scripting options and the ability to migrate user settings when updating to newer versions.
  • Speedgrade adds expanded camera format support in Direct Link mode.
  • Adobe Media Encoder includes Sony XAVC format.
  • Adobe Anywhere introduces performance improvements and diagnostic tools for monitoring system status.

Note that Adobe has issued a warning that the Premiere Pro December 2013 update may cause problems with XML imports.

We have become aware of an issue in the recently released December 2013 Update of Premiere Pro CC. If you are user who frequently imports from other projects, or via XMLs, we recommend that you do not install this update. We are working hard to fix this and hope to have a patch available within 7-10 days. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

I’m holding off on installing this since I frequently will create a XML project for sync’d footage in PluralEyes and then open it in Premiere Pro for multicam editing. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for when the fix for this issue is released and pass that along.
