Adobe has released version 32.1 of the popular video editing application Premiere Pro. The new version comes with a bunch of new features, but topping the list are stylised animated graphics created from captions (including speech-to-text captions) and an update to Premiere Pro’s collaborative features, with sequence locking and easy sharing. Other features include improved masking tools and expanded XAVC HDR support, along with improved and new support for ARRIRAW and RED V-Raptor XL support.
Adobe Premiere Pro now has AI speech recognition for automatic subtitle creation
Adobe has released a new July 2021 update to Adobe Premiere Pro with two big headline features. The first is that Premiere Pro can now natively transcribe the speech in your videos to text in order to text documents for closed-caption subtitles. Previously, you’d need to purchase separate AI transcription tools like Simon Says, but now it can all be done natively within Premiere Pro itself.
The other big news from the Adobe camp is that Premiere Pro’s native Apple M1 version has now been officially released in its final form. Apple M1 support was launched as a beta in December 2020, but after seven months of testing, it’s now ready for prime time, with Adobe claiming speeds almost 80% faster than comparable Intel-based Macs.
Adobe Premiere Pro beta shows a major UX facelift for creating and exporting projects
Adobe has announced a new import and exposure interface for Adobe Premiere Pro. And while I described it as a “facelift” in the title, it’s more like major reconstructive surgery. Like John Travolta & Nick Cage levels of different. It’s currently in public beta, so you can all go and have a play with it, but it comes with a whole new streamlined way of importing your media and exporting your final results.
One thing that should be made clear is that this change doesn’t take away anything you’ve already got. If you prefer to do things the old fashioned way, you can still do that. The new enhancements are simply extra options that add to your overall experience. And, I have to say, they look pretty awesome for speeding up your project workflow – at least the very beginning and end of it.

Adobe Audition now M1 native and Premiere Pro workflow improvements in May CC update

Audition now sees native Apple M1 support, with improved performance for recording and mixing and a couple of very handy new features for stripping silence and monitoring loudness.

Here’s how you can edit Blackmagic RAW footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC
When the news that Blackmagic were replacing CinemaDNG with their own Blackmagic RAW format, there was a mixed reaction. It’s Blackmagic’s own format, offering a lot of benefits over similar formats when it comes to speed, file size and efficiency. But it’s only officially supported by Blackmagic’s own DaVinci Resolve editing and grading software.
Fortunately, though, Blackmagic released the new format with an API that allows 3rd parties to integrate BRAW compatibility into their software. Adobe hasn’t picked up that gauntlet yet, but the developers at Autokroma have. Their BRAW Studio plugin allows you to use BRAW footage easily within Premiere Pro. In this video, Gerald Undone shows us how it works.

This guy is suing Adobe for $250,000 claiming Premiere Pro deleted his work
A freelance videographer by the name of Dave Cooper is suing Adobe for the deletion of around 100,000 digital video clips totalling around 500 hours. After upgrading to Premiere Pro 2017 v11.1.0 in April of last year, he claims that a bug caused the deletion of video clips that cost him around $250,000 to create.
He says that the bug exists in the “clean cache” feature which deletes temporary files and backups created during the editing process. And Adobe has actually acknowledged this bug, but I can’t help but feel there’s quite a bit of user error here.
