Premiere Pro CC 7.0.1 Update Now Live Today, Prelude Update Too

 

 

Less than a month after Creative Cloud launched, Adobe as released significant update to Premiere Pro. This isn't just bug fixes, but actual features added. The first one is a personal favorite of mine I'd been asking for from them for a long time. Its great to finally have it and it makes life a lot better. As for the CC critics, well told you so. Adobe is keeping their word about delivering product updates on a more timely basis now that they aren't tied up by the stupid SEC rules. You aren't waiting another year or so to get some nice new features and improved behaviors in the app, you're getting them when they are ready for use.

Oh, and did I also say Adobe Anywhere is also now shipping today :) ?

Other updates for Prelude to support Anywhere and bug fixes is also now live.

Here is a list of whats new.

  • Duplicating a title in a sequence creates a new, unique title, which can be independently edited from the original.
  • Lift and Extract can be used when only an In or Out point is set (if only an In is set, Lift/Extract will use the end of the sequence as the Out point; if only an Out is set, the beginning of the sequence will be used for the In point).
  • Copy, Cut, and Clear commands work between In and Out points on targeted tracks when no clips are selected.
  • When a sequence is loaded in the Source Monitor, keyboard shortcuts can be used to navigate to edit points (Up/Down keys by default).
  • Keyboard shortcuts can be used to clear In/Out points on clips in the Project Panel.
  • The Enable Clip command now works as a toggle when multiple clips are selected, such that any disabled clips become enabled and vice versa.
  • The Match Frame command will prioritize a selected clip over a targeted track.
  • The Relink command can now be used on a sequence containing offline media.
  • The Export EDL dialog now contains the option to include or exclude Transitions and the Key Track.
  • The Reveal In Project command now works from the Source Monitor.
  • A preference has been added to select whether or not playback jumps to the beginning of the Timeline or a Clip once the end has been reached.
  • A button has been added to the Timeline Panel to globally Link or Unlink all clips in the sequence.
  • An assignable keyboard shortcut has been added to enable toggling between the Source and Program Monitors.
  • The Reveal In Finder command can now be used on clips in a sequence.
  • A default start timecode value for all new sequences can be set in the Timeline panel.
  • Clips can now be dragged from the Finder or Explorer directly into the Source Monitor.
  • The Match Frame command now works on Nested or Multi-Camera Source Sequences, first matching to the source sequence, then stepping back further to the original master clip used in that source sequence.
  • Offline audio clips are now displayed in red, matching offline video clips.
  • The Source Settings dialog can be accessed by right-clicking on Clips within the Timeline Panel.
  • A preference has been added to allow the Timeline Panel to be automatically focused after an Insert or Overwrite edit is performed.
  • The Auto-Save dialog is suppressed during editing, and auto saves will not occur if no changes have been made to the project.
  • The Tone Settings dialog allows users to set the amplitude and frequency of the Bars and Tone synthetic clip.
  • Closed Captions are displayed on thumbnails in the Captions panel.
  • Options have been added to the Automate To Sequence dialog for Still Clip Duration, giving control over whether still clips use the In/Out range or a specified number of frames per clip (for timelapse workflows).
