    Future versions of Premiere Pro will no longer support Quicktime 7 era formats and codecs

    Patrick J. Palmer Adobe Employee

      Hello everyone,


      I’m the product manager for Premiere Pro. As there will be a change to our file format support starting with the next release of Premiere Pro, I wanted to be sure you’re aware of what that’s going to look like. Below is the official statement and a link to further information. Please let us know if you have any questions.



      Adobe continuously aims to keep up with the most modern workflows and support formats and codecs broadly used across the professional film and video industry. As a result, future versions of Premiere Pro will no longer support legacy QuickTime 7 era formats and codecs. Professional codecs typically found in QuickTime movie files, such as ProRes, DNxHD, and Animation, are not impacted by this change.  These codecs are supported natively in Premiere Pro.


      To alert Premiere Pro users regarding this pending change, the most recent versions (12.0, 12.01) of Premiere Pro show a warning notification when you attempt to use a legacy QuickTime format or codec that will no longer be supported, starting with the next release.



      If you are affected by this change, please stay tuned for more information regarding next steps.
