Adobe has just released the new version 22.4 of its video editing program Premiere Pro 22.4. The focus of the improvements in Premiere&s May update is performance. For example, exporting 4:2:2 HEVC 10-bit video is now available for both Intel and M1 systems on macOS and AMD GPUs on Windows, thanks to new support for hardware encoding. This brings up to 10x speedup in encoding for export.
In addition, intelligent rendering performance and QuickTime screen recording playback and scrubbing have been accelerated. In addition, for more resource-efficient HDR work, medium- and high-resolution HDR proxies can now be created in the correct color space. New features in version 22.4 include support for transparency in GIFs and options for distributing spacing between objects for titles and graphics.
