Adobe Premiere Pro 22.3 new file creation sucks and should be removed!
The new update 22.3 has a new interface when you want to create a new file and it sucks! I prefer version 22.2 where it interfaces with Windows 11 as to where you want file located and named. I had to remove the 22.3 update and restore the 22.2 version. I would make the new file creation optional (Windows vs Adobe interface) for future updates.

Is premiere pro really better tool for creating and uploading videos on Pinterest?
Todd Dunn commented
Adobe, please remove the new file creation interface or make the new file creation optional.
Rebecca Carter commented
I so agree! this is ridiculous!!!

I just had to log in to say how horrible the new version was... I also downgraded to 22.2. the new one was laggy, poorly made, difficulty to use and UGLY! Atleast we can roll back.

If you're going to copy something from Davinci, copy the good stuff, like render performance and GPU usage, please...

I completely agree.
Why introduce a dumbed-down file creation?
Why would I be using Premiere and not know how to import footage AFTER setting up the project?
Why remove features like column view, new folder creation etc.?
Why make it so that it's so easy to make a mistake like selecting folders to import as footage rather than opening a single folder?
It makes me so frustrated, within a minute of trying to create a new project I was cursing Adobe for making such a stupid change.

For Adobe's defense, it does provide more vertical room for UI controls for encoding settings

It's problematic in it's intent, and frustrating for several reasons.
1. Essentially you are introducing a new UI/visual language in only 2 places (opening and import/export). This UI exists nowhere else in your user experience. For example, we all use AME. You've essentially reskinned AME just for this one moment. Outside of that, it's business as usual. Because of this, this decision is half baked, seemingly arbitrary, and abrasive to the day to day experience.
2. Too many UI's / visual languages. Now we have 3: The open/import/export, Premiere business as usual UI, and our operating system. The last of which is, has been, and should be more than adequate! So 3 UI experiences... The newly added interface is messy, sparse, INVASIVE, and ultimately not offering anything new other than immediate frustration and cute toggles.
3. It adds no functionality, creates extra steps to basic tasks, and also lacks expected production features. Generally, when post production software implements it's own folder UI, it does so to add functionality that supports it's purpose, like aggregation of image sequences into a single clip, or hierarchal folder see-through viewing. Not simply to reskin a tried and true thing that already exists.
4. In your attempt to simplify these 2 moments, you've overcomplicated daily/basic tasks for the long term user / professional.
I imagine this is all motivated by increasing the user base yearly, or an appeal to fresh content creators, or media buzz. We understand that stability, reliability, and performance isn't as attractive from a marketing standpoint, but it should be considered paramount above all.
If such a UI is necessary for a certain user base, why not split the path, tabling some of these decisions for an essentials or reduced type version (Premiere Rush)? Or introducing a mode switch: A Pro mode that is sensitive to consistency, with the complexity needed for users that require complete control, and a (for lack of a better term) Toy mode for drop in, drop out consumer content creators?
Let's not forget that this is software for career professionals. It's OK, if it's a little bit complex. That's how we learn. Production and Post-Production is inherently complex, always will, and should be.

I hate it with passion as well but specifically not being able to create a new folder is a dealbreaker.
Jim Sullivan commented
What is wrong with Adobe?!! They keep making their apps worse and worse. Just as I was beginning to like Premiere Pro they completely ****** it up and now it absolutely sucks. Are they stupid? What is wrong with them?
Erik-Jan de Boer commented
It's so bad. What an oversight. You need to be able to click on a previous name, edit and save.
Ricardo Leon commented
Start referring to the update as "Ugly Sonic." Maybe that will clue in Adobe to what they could gain by listening to their customers. The movie producers listened and salvaged a franchise.
Francisco Ortiz commented
Totally agree, they shoud get back to previous version till they figure it out, right now is unworkable
Thad Mermer commented
slows my workflow nearly to a halt. Apple native file browser please!
Why do I need another one... Especially one that is worse?
I'm going back to 22.2 as well until a better solution is offered.
Curatorial Design commented
I have to agree. The whole new process of importing (as best I can tell...) has really slowed down my workflow. I have several shortcuts on my desktop that don't show up in list view and I have to dig around to find the files which is very inconvenient.
I realize this is not everyone's way of doing things, but it has really messed with mine in what seem like a completely unnecessary way.
Ian Burgmyer commented
Agreed. This is probably the worst file browser I've ever used. I'm sure it's an improvement for people who keep all of their project files in a single location, but it's incredibly cumbersome if you don't.
