Adobe updates Premiere Pro CC to 2015.2
28th January 2016
Adobe has released an update to Premiere Pro CC which contains multiple bug fixes, and is recommended for all users. Creative Cloud members and trial users will be able to download and install these applications using the Creative Cloud desktop application, or online from www.adobe.com/creativecloud. This update does not require project files to be updated.
Alongside the fixes, which are listed below, a new High Quality Playback option has been added to the playback settings. In previous releases, Premiere's playback settings only gave users fractional resolution choices, and playback was optimized for real time playback performance. At the default settings, frames typically have a slightly softer look during playback vs. pause, even when both are set to full resolution. Toggling on the new High Quality setting can provide a smoother viewing experience, where playback better matches the image quality of frames when paused. High Quality playback may result in dropped frames depending on the media and hardware configuration, and most users will find the default settings are still the best choice for real time playback.
Fixes in Premiere Pro CC 2015.2 address the following issues:
- Adobe Stock and CC Libraries could not be used by users who connect to the internet using proxy servers.
