New in Premiere Pro: Remix for music and 3x faster Speech to Text

Timeline in Premiere Pro.

New features in the latest release of Premiere Pro dramatically accelerate editorial workflows, including Remix, which uses Adobe Sensei to intelligently re-time music clips to match video content, and an updated Speech to Text, which can now be used offline, generating accurate transcriptions up to 3 times faster.

Video editors, from established professionals, social creators to new filmmakers, need tools that help them work efficiently while they craft their stories. By weaving intelligent features into streamlined workflows, and leveraging the power of modern hardware, Premiere Pro continues to innovate, enabling creators to keep up with the growing opportunities for video.

Remix in Premiere Pro, powered by Adobe Sensei

The new Remix tool in Premiere Pro allows editors and creators to rearrange songs to match the timing of their videos. Remix, powered by Adobe Sensei, uses artificial intelligence to analyze the song and generate a new mix that fits the desired duration, whether shorter or longer than the original. Remix works so fast that it is easy to try out different arrangements using sliders in the Essential Sound panel. Until now, an editor could only fade music in and out, or had to make precision cuts with the razor tool to manually assemble a new arrangement, a process which can take hours. Remix does this in seconds.

A flexible, faster Speech to Text

Speech to Text in Premiere Pro is already the industry’s best workflow for captioning videos. With this release it is faster and more flexible. Downloadable language packs allow the user to transcribe videos without an internet connection and offer the same exceptional accuracy that users value in the original release of Speech to Text. On Intel Core i9 and Apple M1 computers, transcriptions are 3 times faster, and typically 2 times faster on other current processors. The English language pack is installed automatically with Premiere Pro and all other 12 supported languages can be installed within the application or via Creative Cloud Desktop. All language packs will be updated on an ongoing basis with future releases.

Faster exports for 10-bit 420 HEVC and other improvements

Editors and creators who are delivering HDR content can now export projects up to 10x faster on Windows systems with Intel or NVIDIA graphics. 10-bit footage includes more color information, allowing for beautiful HDR imagery, but requiring more processing to encode. Hardware acceleration takes advantage of the GPU to speed up those exports.

The latest release of Premiere Pro also ships with GPU acceleration for Linear Wipe and Block Dissolve effects. GPU acceleration means better playback and faster exports when using these effects. To date over 70 percent of Premiere Pro effects have been GPU-accelerated.

For owners of new 2021 MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, Premiere Pro now adjusts to accommodate the notch in the bezel of the display.
