We are happy to announce that Sapphire, Boris Continuum Complete, and mocha Pro are all 100% compatible with the freshly released Adobe CC 2017. If you are interested in using "Team Projects", please be aware this feature is still in beta. There are a couple of minor issues we are still working to correct within the new, shared workflow. For example, if you try and load a sequence with Sapphire effects on a machine that does not have Sapphire licensed, Premiere will crash.
