Fix AJA ProRes support!!!!
Yesterday I found out the hard way while working on a time critical live event that ProRes 422 files recorded by AJA recorders (the standard for live show records) are totally incompatible with Premiere 13.0.3. The video file would not playback at all, and it would brick my external hard disk the file was on. We experienced this on multiple systems. Finally another editor let me know 12.1.2 would work. While 12.1.2 would edit and play the file. It would drop audio or drop frames every 20 seconds during playback in premiere. Making for the most frustrating editing experience I have had yet. When I tried to transcode the file in Media Encoder it would crash as well. Ultimately I had to make a transcode in Apple Compressor. I tested the problem file in FCP X and it had no problems playing it at all as well. This is very bad for pro adobe users, please fix.

Let me specify these are 4K files. But I have used 4K prores with Premiere in the past without issue. Also it was premiere that would brick the external hard disk.
