September 2020 Update: Premiere Pro

Scene Edit Detection 

This new features allows editors to quickly and more accurately find cuts in previously edited video. Furthermore, this new feature is aided by AI, and adds cuts and markers so that editors can apply effects to individual shots and re-edit previously rendered content.

HDR for Broadcasters 

With this feature editors can produce programming in Rec.2100 HLG HDR for broadcast applications including automatic colour conversion, HDR scope support, and colour space overrides for incorrect metadata. Moreover, editors now get the benefit of full colour management for ProRes and Sony XAVC Intra codecs.

Quick Export (currently in Beta)

With this feature editors get quick and easy access to the most popular and frequently used export settings, right from the header bar in Premiere Pro.

And this way they can export the default, high-quality H.264 output with matched Source Settings or choose from a short list of H.264 presets that let you reduce the size of export files.

Performance Improvements

ProRes multi-cam performance in Premiere Pro can support up to twice more streams. 

After Effects will soon get Channel effects – which are now GPU-accelerated, providing up to 1.65x faster performance. These include Minimax, Shift Channels, Set Channels, and Channel Combine.

OpenEXR Previews for multipart and multichannel files are now up to 3x faster in After Effects.

Faster Effects scanning for VST3 and Audio Unit (AU) plugins in Audition and Premiere Pro means faster launch times for users with third-party audio plugins. Effects scanning is up to 15x faster on macOS and up to 10x faster on Windows.

September 2020 Update: After Effects

3D Transform Gizmos 

With this feature users can navigate a scene faster and more intuitively. Also, they can scale, position, and rotate layers with helpful guides that show how far a layer or object has been moved and how many degrees it has been rotated. Furthermore, users also can switch between gizmo modes to focus on a single task and make precision adjustments efficiently.

Camera navigation Tools – redesigned

The camera navigation tools have been revamped for a more intuitive and flexible approach. In addition, the new default scene camera streamlines scene setup.
