fix the update process
It is not ok, that a post dot update (12DOT1) messes up the file interchangeability. If on one machine the messed up update makes it impossible to export the work you did into a usable codec (hap, dds or any other QT-codec that is being used by pro-standard media servers like pandoras box or others) you have to be able to transfer the file (and working time) to another machine running 12.1 to export your work.
Bring back qt7 and backward compatibility, please!
OS level support for old codecs was removed.
Rather than create new support for old formats, PPro will instead invest in support for popular modern formats.
PPro supports a unified plug-in directory for all installed PPro versions.

That's bad news and good news at the same time.
So is After Effects also "afected" by the introduction of a unified plug-in directory? That would be a great help for every Pro.
... and while You are at it: In After Effects most Pros work with a wide range of plugIns. It's not a great option to have to manually reinstall them for every real update. Please find a way to transit plugIns automatically (and then validate them).
