There’s also news for Team Projects, Adobe’s hosted collaboration technology for Team and Enterprise customers – as well as being fully integrated with the new release, the update now supports Dynamic Link between After Effects and Premiere Pro – one of the most effective workflow features in collaborative workflows. In addition, Team Projects now supports Adobe Media Encoder. Adobe Media Encoder allows you to browse Team Projects in the Media Browser and encode media in a Team Project such as file media, Premiere Pro sequences and After Effects compositions, directly in Adobe Media Encoder.
Adobe have also restructured the Help and Learn content for Premiere Pro, you can now find the best content for getting started with Premiere Pro by choosing the track for beginners, or look for tutorials on advanced subjects by choosing the track for experienced users. Following NAB, Jason Levine will kick off a 6-week series on best practices for creating stellar video content. Join him every Friday at 9am PT on the Creative Cloud Facebook page to learn start-to-finish video workflows for beginners and anyone who wants to bring their skills to the next level.
Please note that the newly released versions of Adobe Creative Cloud applications will overwrite prior installations by default. No parallel installs are possible as this is a patch release. Also, please be aware that projects saved in Premiere Pro 2017.1 cannot be opened with previous versions.
