Adobe Releases CC 2014.2

 Premiere Pro CC 2014.2

Premiere Pro CC 2014.2

Yesterday, Adobe pushed out CC 2014.2 which appears to be a bug squashing release for the most part. But there are several needed improvements to call out. Check out Premiere Bro's favorite updates below...

1. Export channels as separate WAV files | Media Encoder CC 2014.2

We have added an option to the WAV format that will allow you to create a separate file for each channel of audio in your source file. You can enable this option by choosing Waveform Audio as your format and from the Export Settings dialog, checking “Export each channel as a separate file”

[UPDATE 12/19/14] AS THE QUOTE SAYS ABOVE, THIS FEATURE ONLY APPLIES TO WAVEFORM AUDIO EXPORTS.

As long as this feature applies to merged clips in Premiere, this is by far Premiere Bro's most anticipated improvement. This will allow editors to more easily create synced master files, preserving the channels from their source audio. Hopefully this will simplify or eliminate Premiere Pro's complicated audio mapping process to prevent Premiere Pro from mixing down the audio when exporting. Now, if only Adobe would add the ability to sync clips in Prelude!

2. Set transitions and still image default durations in seconds or frames | Premiere Pro CC 2014.2

There is no further information from Adobe on this feature at this time. Not that more is needed. This just makes sense and gives editors more control when applying transitions or arranging still images in the timeline. 

3. CineForm Export improvements | Premiere Pro & Media Encoder CC 2014.2

In the 2014.1 release of Media Encoder there was a mismatch between the GoPro CineForm presets and the bit-depth of the resulting output. The export settings and presets have been renamed to correctly match the expected output.

This fix clears up the confusion surrounding the newly added Go Pro CineForm codec export options. Go Pro CineForm is an efficient and high quality intermediate and archival codec and is now available on Windows.This fix clears up the confusion surrounding the newly added Go Pro CineForm codec export options.
