  • Audio pitch remains the same when you shuttle forwards and back.
  • The ability to select all tracks backwards.
  • Select multiple transitions and change their durations simultaneously.
  • Match Frame backwards, from the Source window to the Timeline.
  • Tag ‘favorites’ in the Media Browser.
  • Automatically back up autosave files to Adobe’s Creative Cloud.
  • All video and audio tracks can be locked with a keyboard shortcut.
  • A contextual export menu for items in the Project Panel.
  • Add a keyboard shortcut for the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog.
  • ‘fx’ badges on timeline tracks can be turned off in the timeline.
