Is there any kind of significant overhaul planned for the next version of Premiere? Because it needs one
I've been posting about some significant bugs and wishlist items (most needed one IMO is an overhauled Warp Stabilizer, but another one is more stable handling of render files) in the past week. I just finished expressing my sentiments to a fellow frustrated user about how Adobe's Creative Cloud suite COULD be the best in the industry, if only they would figure out these problems and start advancing things more, better and faster. The potential is there, but I feel like it's not being pushed forward as much as it could and should be.
So can anybody from Adobe please tell me... What's the plan? Is there any significant overhaul coming that will seek to actually polish Premiere up to the level it really ought to be at in 2018? What's being introduced in the next version? What's being fixed? Will we ever get a "Warp Stabilizer 2" or 3 or 4, etc?
Generally speaking, Premiere 2017 and 2018 have been very marginal upgrades. But I feel like Premiere needs its "Final Cut X" style leap forward. Maybe not so much in terms of layout/visual design, because that's aspect is fine. But just in terms of functionality, features, smoothness, etc... Premiere feels like it's really lagging on development in these areas lately. Another marginal upgrade for 2019 isn't going to cut it.
So what's going on? Please let us know.
your comments are as thoughtful as they are timely.
While I usually would have to close this item as it isn’t specific enough, I’m gonna leave it open so others can see this and add comments:
Please come back and vote for exactly the items that you feel need a V2, some polish, or just remove friction in areas that have grown over time. Add a new request if what you’d like to see revised isn’t discussed yet.
We’re already seeing good patterns on User Voice as to which items and areas would be good candidates for upcoming releases. You can see some of the top runners already marked as “Under Review”. And while that won’t tell you with which release exactly we’ll have things ready for you, it’s an indicator of an investment we’re making to improve features and workflows where most users express their needs.

Better performance for Mac machines. I have a brand new iMacPro and the performance is terrible ( actually slower than my 2010 MacPro for after effects). If i convert the same project over to FCPX it plays perfectly with no issues. It seems on the surface that Premiere and Ae are only using 10% of the processing power in the computer... which is just crazy!
Yes, even on a good system, I find it a bit laggy and playback can often be choppy. There's gotta be a way to make things smoother.

I also think about an overhaul, but also in terms of visual design, sometimes I feel that Premiere is aging. I do not know if it is because of the way it is programmed or the smoothness, for example, in Final Cut X, when you place the mouse over a clip it will play smoothly with a nice visual design, I do not feel that with Premiere.
I agree with you, and I think all Adobe users have the same idea.
Come on, Adobe, you can be the best :)
