Adobe provided video intros to Proxy Improvements and New Workspaces in Premiere Pro. New Proxy Badges make it easier to distinguish between proxy files and source media and give editors the option to burn-in watermarks, so everyone working on the project can see which media is being used.
New workspaces allow users working on a laptop to streamline their screen real estate by putting the core functions, such as giving you the option to toggle through your control panels (effects, color, graphics, and audio) more efficiently. Users putting out a lot of social content, will appreciate the new Vertical Video workspace that helps you deliver video footage as quickly as horizontal.
