Auto keyframe should be OFF! By default it should be off!
The autokeyframe by default on things loke opacity has been a source of many a frustrations for me.
I set an opacity value. 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 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. Pick one and stick to it.
Implemented in 14.2.

It's still happening to me!
WHEE! How many years did it take to get a glaring design defect fixed?
Adobe's windfall software-rental scheme is TOTALLY HELPING USERS by funding rapid bug fixes as promised!
Maybe by 2050 there'll be a way to relink a project's footage.
Richard TOULON commented
Great job , Now the problem is fixed !
Jeremy Abbott commented
Unless it's exclusive to the beta program or buried deep in a menu or something, this has still not been implemented...
Euan Preston commented
ALSO, could Adobe PLEASE remove the completely pointless nag/confirmation dialogue that pops up whenever I remove keyframes for properties such as motion? I know how to use the undo function, thanks.
Joshua Dunn commented
This isn't implemented. Why are you guys saying it is? This auto keyframing is infuriating.
AllTheGoodNamesAreGone that's what I'm thinking
Bruce, how is this implemented in 14.2?
I am running 14.2 and auto keys are still applied to Opacity and Speed
Jarle Leirpoll commented
I love that it's now off for Opacity. Now, please, do the same thing to Audio Volume/Level.
Jarle Leirpoll commented
Thank you SO MUCH for fixing this! You have no idea how much this means to me and thousands of other users!
I guess those who complain that they don't see it are NOT on the beta (which is 14.3, not 14.2 BTW, Bruce). I'm happy, though!
Pierre Louis Beranek commented
I installed 14.2 and I DON'T see this new feature, nor do I see some of the other features that were supposed to be implemented in 14.2 (such as the option to not display "Project" in the project window). What's going on?
Dear Mr. Bruce Willis, could you please add more Information about this feature I don't really see?
William Peters commented
cool... what about the feature tho... anyone seeing this? can the admin give more info or steps on how to get this to work.

Sometimes I feel people commenting they are happy with how and where Adobe software is going and that they do work on things like this are either paid or really bored.
Adobe software is nothing if not complete and utter sh*t. At least for me Adobe is famous for this since early 2000's, when I started using Abobe products. The worst usage of resources that can put even the most powerful computers on their knees for even simple tasks (that other software can do with incredibly better efficiency). Lack of interest in developing products according to user requests. Rare - and rarely useful - new features.
The problem is competing software is usually not better overall. I don't know about FCP, I keep away from Apple products in general, but Resolve has its own issues and the same lack of interest in implementing features that customers might need. So I keep using Adobe for now, at least until my yearly plan expires, also because if I cancel it now they will still charge me a lot of money. But that doesn't mean I am pleased with it or shouldn't complain about all the serious defects.

Oh boy, the old and ridiculous "must be paid" nonsense. Paid by WHOM? Talk about juvenile. Think it through.
And Premiere DOESN'T EVEN SUPPORT ILLUSTRATOR FILES. Your example is a perfect one for why Adobe's rental model is a fraud. How old is Premiere, and yet it doesn't support Adobe's own scalable graphics! That is pathetic.
Then there's Illustrator itself: abandonware. Do they even recompile this defect-riddled dinosaur anymore?
Could it be that people are sick of getting bilked by Adobe for junk? And now that some viable alternatives have finally emerged, they're celebrating verbally right here, FREE!
We don't hate everything. Premiere's still better than the shitshow that is FCP X. But it's not worth it.
At least Adobe added ProRes Raw. I'll give 'em that.

Sometimes I feel like people commenting to say they hate everything and canceled their subscription are either paid or really bored. I know I'm notes of the comments.
Adobe products are tools like any other. I know for certain that I wouldn't be able to work with 90% of my clients as fast and well using other products, even Resolve. If others can that's great. But I don't care about the tools you don't like. I for one am happy with how and where Adobe software is going and that they do work on things like this. Maybe it's slow but try using even Avid with fast turnarounds with modern camera codecs and then come back and see where you are. Or try to animate quickly Photoshop or illustrator files in Resolve.
FCP (old and new) blows. Resolve has serious defects, but it's free for most people's purposes and not much worse than Premiere. When you combine that with Affinity's (also flawed but usable) offerings,it's bye-bye Adobe suite.
The only thing I'll miss is Audition, and I'm about to shell out for Pro Tools instead of Adobe's nonsense.
Jeremy Solterbeck commented
So you guys that are jumping ship for a poorly thought out feature . . . what are you using now? I 93% really like Premiere and it does a number of things that FCP7 never did, despite some silliness. I don't know of another workflow where I can accomplish as much. Would like to though!
Robert Keuler commented
Sorry Bruce. Still active. Maybe you meant 14.3 when that's released?
Morgs B commented
I'm just here to express, along with the others, how utterly, laughably useless Adobe and Premiere has become. Way too little too late. Also cancelled my subscription earlier this year, and there's gonna be more and more.
