Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015.2
[permalink] 29.01.2016

Adobe Premiere Pro CC Q1 2015 Creative Cloud update videoAdobe released an update to Premiere Pro CC which contains multiple bug fixes, and is recommended for all users. Alongside the fixes, 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. [source]
