All Film Program workstations, suites, and classrooms have been updated to the latest release of Adobe CC 2017 (v11.1.2) and macOS Sierra (v10.12.6). We strongly recommend any student running Premiere Pro v11.1.0 to update as soon as possible as some of our stand-a-lone users have reported problems with project and media files being unintentionally deleted due to a known bug in that release. This issue has been resolved in the latest stable release, version 11.1.2.

Installations of Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Studio have been updated to version 14.0.1.

Students who are using Adobe CC on their personal computers should wait to upgrade to the recent 2018 release of CC in order to keep compatibility with UCF’s post-production environment. Instructions on how to walk back an Adobe CC 2018 installation to Adobe CC 2017 can be found here. For a full list of the currently supported software versions, please visit the software section of this site.
