SAN JOSE, CA — Adobe (adobe.com) has announced a number of updates and performance improvements to its Premiere Pro and Premiere Rush applications.
Premiere Rush now supports Apple M1 computers, including recently released models such as the MacBook Air M1, MacBook Pro M1 and MacMini M1. On Apple M1 computers, Premiere Rush offers improved performance for playback and editing, as well as faster exports compared to comparable Intel-based systems. All common video and still image file formats are supported, providing a seamless transition from previous generation Mac computers. Project syncing works across devices, so users can continue to work with their projects on Apple Intel, Windows, iOS, Android and new Apple M1 systems. There is also support for new Android devices, including the Samsung Note 20/20+.
Premiere Pro (15.1) has a number of improvements, including H.264/HEVC encode performance on Windows (Intel). New optimizations further improve export times using Intel Quick Sync hardware acceleration, with results up to 1.8x faster than Premiere Pro 14.0. And Lumetri presets now display a frame from the current sequence, while thumbnails for Lumetri presets in the effects panel dynamically update, providing a preview of the preset.
