Adobe Premiere Pro 11.1.2 Brings Support for GH5’s 10-bit Files

Adobe Premiere Pro 11.1.2 Brings Support for GH5's 10-bit Files

A new update for Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 has been released today and it brings important bug fixes and performance improvements. It also brings support for 10-bit files filmed with the Panasonic GH5, which was a widely discussed topic in the past few months.

The Panasonic GH5’s 10-bit files were not behaving very nicely in Adobe Premiere Pro. Specifically, it has not been possible to edit them since the last Premiere Pro update, as they were just behaving like audio files. Adobe promised to bring an update to tackle this issue and add 10-bit support in June. That time has now come, with the 11.1.2 update released today.

As Adobe states in their news post: “This is a critical update which is highly recommended for all users.”

The new Premiere Pro CC 2017 11.1.2 update brings new media cache management features, which change how Premiere Pro cache folders are handled. In the previous version 11.1.1, cache management preferences could only be applied to files within the Media Cache folder structure. Version 11.1.2 only applies the preference to media cache files of a known type, like *.pek, *.ims and *.cfa. Only those files will be deleted according to the cache management preference.

Apart from the Panasonic GH5’s 10-bit file support and media cache management changes, the new Premiere Pro brings stability and performance improvements, as well as support for new file types. Below is the full list of updates:
