Five New Features in Premiere Pro CC 2017 (April Spring Update) Worth Considering

Even though Premiere Pro CC already packs a myriad of extremely convenient tools and assets for video editing and color grading, the latest April Spring Update brings even more useful features to the table.

Being one of the beta testers of the latest version of the software, Jordy Vandeput of showcases five of them in the next video that are not only worth implementing in your daily video editing workflow but can even help you to earn a few dollars along the line.

First and foremost, creating text and graphics in Premiere Pro CC has never been easier. With the Photoshop-like Type and Pen tools, you can now create text and graphics layers directly in the Program Monitor. Just click on the Type tool icon on the right-hand side of your timeline, head over to the Program Monitor and start typing directly there. After that, you can edit and customize the new elements just as any other text layer or graphic created in Photoshop.

In the above video, we can also see the newly added Essential Graphics panel in action. In essence, it allows users to create different graphics or shapes and also animate them in a similar way like text layers. On top of that, you can add multiple layers right inside the Essential Graphics panel to each of the existing tracks on your timeline which can be an extremely convenient feature keeping your timeline organized and clutter-free.

The third functionality allows users to implement motion graphic templates created in Adobe After Effects. And, the best part is that you can now not only flawlessly import an After Effects motion graphic in Premiere Pro CC but you can also continue with its customization further right inside the NLE itself.

Audio workflow in Premiere Pro CC was also enhanced significantly. Besides adding multiple plugins to your audio tracks on the timeline, you can also control all these features from the Essential Sound panel. You can even auto mix different audio tracks and balance their levels automatically on the fly thus saving more time while working on projects with tight deadlines.

And finally, you can publish some of your unused clips directly to Adobe Stock and sell them just with a few clicks. You can find this new functionality in the good, old export window of Premiere Pro CC under the Publish tab. Meanwhile, make sure that you’ve subscribed to on YouTube as Jordy promises to share some cool custom motion graphics templates that are currently in the making completely free of charge.
