  1. Properly import long RED files without duplicate clips.

    Current Behavior: Whenever you import a long R3D file Premiere automatically groups the smaller "spanned" clips into a larger clip. If you import the clip via the media browser it works fine because the media browser will hide all but the first clip in a sequence. But if you try to import multiple folders(multiple cards, or days of footage.) Premiere will still group the clips, but it creates a full length master clip for each of the parts the the file was split into causing tons of duplicate clips.

    The only work around is to manually recreate your folder structure…

  2. BUG: Premiere Pro 2019 "Unresponsive" During Imports

    I stopped editing for several months and recently came back to it. What I noticed is that Pr seems to have some issues importing the same types of footage that it previous had no issues with: 4K/60 h.264 files that are 5-6GB in size. Previously, Pr would just import them in with no issue. Now, Pr seems to lock up during the import, and again when I try to put that footage on the timeline for the first time.

    During this "lock up", one CPU core from my 7900X is pushed right to 100%. The rest of them are at…

  3. Allow relinking to clips with different # of audio channels

    Just like you can re-link a file to one with different timecode than the version in the project, you should be able to re-link a clip to a file with different audio channels than the original. Just like with TC, if there is 4 channels in original clip and one user wants to use only has 2 channels, the slash marks simply appear in channels 3 and 4.

    Sure, warn the user, but sometimes this is just nessecary when a mistake was made in transcode... or you're relinking to colored files, and colorist didn't export with 4 audio tracks (and…

  4. Allow Proxies and Master Clips to have Different Audio Channels

    Just like you can re-link a file to one with different timecode than the version in the project, you should be able to link a proxy file to a master clip with different audio channels than the original. Just like with TC, if there is 4 channels in original clip and proxy clip only has 2 channels, the slash marks simply appear in channels 3 and 4.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT because the H.264 spec only supports 2 channels. ALMOST ALL CAMERAS shoot with 4 channels. H264 is IDEAL proxy format if you're taking project to edit mobile (ie to the…

  5. Merge Imported Files

    Say you're doin' a bit of editing, and you've got yourself in a bit of a pickle and realise you've left a beautifully cut sequence in an older project file. You go and import the sequence from the old project and then BAM, it has imported the rushes AGAIN! WHY!

    So here's my idea, when something like this happens, it would be absolutely magic if we could say select the imported rushes folder and the rushes folder that was already there (matching of course), and then right click and hit a button (something like "Merge Imported Files") and it will…

  6. Importing a sequence duplicates multicam/nested sequences

    This idea has already been posted here:

    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33974281-do-not-duplicate-media-when-importing-a-sequence

    The admin say it has been fixed but it has not. When working with multiple editors on a single project, If we import a sequence that uses multicam or nested sequences, the newly imported sequence also duplicates all of the multicams it uses. This is highly inefficient and not a good workflow for working with multiple editors. especially in a large project. Currently happening to us on a documentary that uses over 70 multicam sequences. It takes days to replace all of the duplicate material to ensure that the correct sequences are…

  8. Some mp4 files no longer import - The file has no audio or video streams error

    Please fix this issue! I never had this issue before the last update, or maybe two updates ago. It's new within the last few months.

    I have an Inspire 2 Drone and have shot footage with it for over a year now with no issues. Recently when I try to import the footage into PP CC SOME of the files... not all... randomly give this "The file has no audio or video stream errors.". The files look fine. I can play them in ANY type of video player. There is no reason PP shouldn't work with them. This is a…

  9. Correct incorrect levels interpretation of DNxHR and H.264 High 10

    444 variants of DNxHR/HD are misinterpreted as having data level/full range encoding instead of video/legal. H.264 High 10 is incorrectly encoded as full range instead of legal. Please correct these.

  11. Dropbox Smart Sync and File Location/Linking

    At our studio, we use Dropbox to store smaller files such as audio and stock video. With Dropbox's new Smart Sync feature, all of the files are listed by name in a folder's Finder window, even if they are not synced locally. This can cause an issue when another editor is opening the file on a different system that does not have all of the media synced locally, and Premiere will freeze during the "Locating Media" step of opening a project.

    For example, if an editor has downloaded ten different stock video clips but uses only one in the final…

  12. File import issue

    File import issue with 4k VR and large mp4 files in 12.1.1 while they import fine in After effects 15.0.1 and Premiere 12.0.1 respectively.
    Importing them on 12.1.1 either gives generic import error or causes certain to import only as audio.

  13. aaf exported out of premier 2018 with embedded audio can't read the audio when premier tries to import it

    If you export an AAF out of Premier 2018 with embedded audio. Then try to import it back into premier it doesn't extract the audio and you just get a bunch of audio files that won't link.

  14. Import captions from Premiere Pro to After Effects using dynamic link

    Doing captions inside Premiere Pro is super easy, and sometimes you need to import the composition inside AE to add some last retouches to it. It would be amazing to be able to import the captions from PrP to AE effortlessly!

  16. When Importing a folder with a group of subfolders, the subfolders with only one file are not imported just the enclosed file.

    Since I work with files that have cryptic names, having them inside of a subfolder helps me identify them and keep my project organised. Currently, Premiere Pro discards any subfolders with just one file and imports them into the root folder. Please change Premiere Pro so that it no longer discards subfolders containing a single file.

  18. h265 10bit issues

    It seems that Adobe Premiere 2019 has problems with the management of the 10 bit h265 codec. Once the clips are imported, they results more contrasted than 8bit file (shot with Fujifilm XT3). Importing the clip, the video loose dynamic range and there are no problems with any other editing software, or video players. Please, can you fix?
