Premiere Pro 14.5 crashes constantly and lots of bugs
Aren't versions supposed to improve as there are new updates? This is 14.5! Not 14.0.
I get crashes when trying to attach proxies. (I created my own h.265 proxies for 120p footage in handbrake because when I try to create 120p proxies in Premiere it changes the frame rate to 60p making the proxies unusable..) I can attach 1 at a time and it works perfect, however if I try to do all of the 168 clips, it says "Not Responding" for several hours and if I click on anywhere on Premiere while it says the message it crashes. Same thing happens if I try to do more than 1...?!! It seems to get stuck on 'Locating Media'. Then goes to not responding. The proxies are literally in the same assets folder.
This program is so buggy.. Using adjustment layers with Transform/Wave Warp effect for example just doesn't work sometimes, either the transform effect won't do anything when adjusted, or the screen will turn black when using Wave Warp.
Or when working with scale/transform keyframes in Effect Controls, sometimes the left and rights just disappear and I have to move the panel window to get them back..
If I open a new project, my windows layout moves the Effects panel window to a tab in the Projects panel window for some reason, and I have to move it to where I actually saved my workspace layout...
Playback of H.265 is super buggy, it causes weird blocky noise. Davinci resolve works perfect..
Also, Sync settings just doesn't work; Hasn't worked for several versions. It says 'Sync Failed' when trying to upload local settings. (Trying to save all of the custom settings that I use daily incase I have to ever reinstall, which is the point of cloud settings right? Unfortunately it just doesn't work.....)
Why does After Effects RARELY crash year after year and same with Photoshop, but Premiere has always been TERRIBLE with stability? Isn't the Premiere team tired of having customers complain about stability? I'm honesty just sick of filling out these forms for the SAME thing to have the following release with a slightly different effect or feature. PLEASE JUST MAKE A STABLE EXPERIENCE!! STOP RELEASING VERSIONS THAT HAVE BUGS. FULLY TEST IT BEFORE RELEASE WITH A TEAM OF EDITORS WORKING ON BIG PROJECTS ON DIFFERENT SYSTEMS.
All of your paying customers don't have time to be troubleshooting and reporting back, filling out these feedback forms; we should be working on client projects.

It's quite unstable for me too
