Adobe increased the efficiency and reliability of the dynamic link between Premiere Pro and the other video applications, such as Adobe After Effects CC and Adobe Speedgrade CC. New features and increased functionality for common tasks were added into Premiere Pro CC to decrease the amount of round tripping needed between Premiere Pro and the other apps.
