New Exporter & New Project UI's are a downgrade, less intuitive and efficient
New Exporter & New Project UI's are a downgrade, less intuitive and efficient. Please go back to the drawing board on these "new features" they do not help content creators.

Just finally made the upgrade from 2020 and this is an abomination. Totally confusing. God forbid you click a folder it suddenly slows an iMac Pro to a crawl as it tries to load every file.
Why is the Create button on the opposite side of the screen from the initial options?
Just let us skip this. Let me turn it off, it's not that hard.

It's especially terrible because my main monitor is 43" and the Import/Edit/Export windows take up the entire screen and can not be resized. Meaning all the parameters in the windows are spaced very far apart and afaik don't have keyboard shortcuts, so have to use the mouse. It's tedious and frustrating.

Why does Adobe do this, I haven't been able to upgrade from PPro 2020 because they removed a 'bug' which was actually a very useful feature for ripple editing. I learned that they added it back in, in PPro 2022 but now I have to contend with this strange Import/Edit/Export tab system that makes creating new projects and exporting media much more cumbersome and time consuming. Adobe, please stop ruining my workflow.
Back to 2020 I guess, which at this point I can no longer download and have to copy an .EXE file. Not sure why I'm paying for this garbage.

what is wrong with your team? why make it more difficult and slower to create a new project? stop messing with the UI, and focus on compatibility, and performance. this is really getting old

I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro for many years now, and the new UI
to create a new project is (to say the least) horrible.
The main real estate of it use to select the media files and the project location is a small text field at the top.
It took me a minute to see it after I couldn't find my project in the selected folder while overwriting an existing one...
As a product developer, it is clear to me that the one who came out with this UI never used the app...
Please roll it back.

This has none of the file management shortcuts, the create button is greyed out if you click something, even though it's what you have to click. The templates are not good. Can I just go back to regular legacy file management, why did they make this UI thing, there’s plenty of things like sticky sliders and legacy issues they could have worked on.
I find it much easier and faster to open a blank project and save it as a new one then to go through this new project loader
Luiz Amoasei commented
Here in the studio we created an unthinkable workflow: we have an empty premiere project file, which we copy to the folder of each new project. A way to bypass this horrible new interface.
For now, this is how we will proceed.

We always use explorer to import clips,
It's much faster, we don't have to build thumbnails, we can rename just for import,
view date and filesizes, do a quick selection, switch to different directories etc.
Rob Eggleston commented
I find that the new Import window starts to lag heavily as soon as any clips are selected for import. Kind of defeats the purpose.
Krisanna Sexton commented
I couldn't agree more.

"Seriously, no "Create New Folder" option in the import window? Why have all of that if you can't modify it to your liking? BORING."
Thanks for the feedback. Can you please clarify your ask? Creating new projects uses the same number of mouse clicks or keystrokes as the old flow. You type in a name, optionally choose a folder and hit enter/return or click the Create button. When you choose a folder you can also bring up the operating system dialog box to make a folder.
You create new Bins by selecting that in the Import Settings panel and providing a name.

Also what's with the new Export window requiring that I set a name for the file AND folder destination separately?! Previously I could click on the export path, click on a previously exported item, update the number iteration in the filename and accept. Now I have to once again exit Premiere into Explorer, navigate to the output folder, copy the name of the previous video version, jump back into premiere and paste the name there. This makes export versioning SUCK.
Here's my idea: STREAMLINE, don't BULK.

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.

I strongly dislike the new import and export windows
Erik Pelyukhno commented
It's as if Adobe wants to stay disconnected with the professional users and keep pushing new features and changing key interfaces instead of just fixing bugs. I've switched to Davinci Resolve because my projects kept having new crashes pop up.
Michael Stephenson commented
Welcome the chorus. The new interface has gone down like a lead balloon. It seriously needs to be rolled back ASAP.
Rein Jakobson commented
I hate new interface changes. It feels like Final Cut Pro X all over again - trying to simplify interface for kids and grandmas. Creating new project was pain. It took me about 10 minutes. Slow and unintuitive. Exporting new files is also much worse. I would like to have option to turn everything back to normal.
Dyson Ritchie commented
At my office we have a very specific way of naming exported files; with this new UI we have to go into our files to find the name of our most recent export and name the new one accordingly instead of just changing 1 little thing like we used to. This wouldn't be an issue if we only had a few projects but we have several.
Its is incredibly inefficient...
Adobe please take us back to the previous exporter... if it ain't broke, don't fix it you know?
Andrew Chandler commented
Adobe, please listen to the large amount of your user base.
These implementations were a mistake and need revisioning.
Andrew Jehan commented
A list of just some of the problems with the new export interface:
1) Overwrites existing files (such as past exports) with no warning!!!
2) Can't create a new folder from the save location dialogue box!
3) New save location dialogue box doesn't show existing files, so when saving a new version of an export, you can't just copy-paste the old filename. Now you have to open the file browser, navigate to the save location and copy the filename from there. This is extremely time consuming.
4) When exporting from in to out points (such as exporting a single frame jpg), the export preview doesn't automatically show the first frame of the export. Instead it always shows the first frame of the sequence.
5) When it's necessary to adjust a single export setting (i.e. when creating a whole preset isn't necessary), you have to mouse-click to twirl down the settings rather than just using the scoll wheel like you could in the past.
6) When using a massive UHD display, you have to move over to look up in the top left corner to adjust settings and filename. Then move over again to find the export button in the bottom right. The whole thing is way too big.
7) The export button must be mouse-clicked. Hitting enter/return doesn't work.
