This Action Will Delete Existing Keyframes warning... WHY?
Why is there a pop up warning when deleting keyframes in Premiere 'Pro'. Are Pro users not savvy enough to know what they're doing and need a warning EVERY SINGLE TIME we delete keyframes?
There is no warning like this in After Effects. Why in Premiere?
I've requested this be removed since CS5. How does this annoying pop-up still exist?
At least give a preference toggle to turn this off. Seriously.
Over 7 yrs, come on Adobe! Give your Pro users the benefit of the doubt in this 'Pro' application. YES I KNOW I AM DELETING KEYFRAMES.
@ Johan Malmsten... I agree, the keyframes placed on certain properties make absolutely no sense. Speed, opacity, audio levels. If I want a keyframe, I'll put one there.

Not only is that message a timewaster, but the autokeyframe by default on things loke opacity has been a source of many a frustrations for me.
I set an opacity nr. Then later I change it. Play it back and I wonder why it isn't set where I wanted. So I open it up an goddammit the autokeyframe was on by default so to get rid of it I push the stop watch and that warning mentioned here is thrown right at my face. I never wanted the keyframes in the first place so why did you assume I would, adobe?!
This problem would not be nearly as aggravating if the behavior of keyframes was consistent. Not like now, when autokeyframe is on by default for some values but not others.
YES!!! this wastes time during projects. and it's a simple fix to make it go away using an external program. They need to make this part of the official program.
@Jason Ross. It's called Premiere 'Pro'. Pro users know what they're doing.
And if you accidentally delete your keyframes, there's a handy command called undo (cmd/ctrl + z)

@Jason Ross, the feature request is to build an option into Premiere to disable this, with the default set to how it behaves now.
No reason to not have it as a feature, as it would eliminate an entirely unnecessary step for those who are aware of what's happening.

I strongly DISAGREE. That pop-up window has saved me MANY TIMES. And for those reading at Adobe, this goes to the heart and soul of the culture of the Premiere Pro use community. There are so many of us who are not nearly as advanced as the user who posted this comment. Trust me when I say, we users who are not as advanced are not being less advanced in order to anger users such as him/her who wishes that warning would go away. PLEASE KEEP IT THERE!! I have accidentally deleted keyframes MANY TIMES. That warning truly saved my efforts!! And the efforts of thousands of others who didnt post a response here.
