New Create screen is SLOW
Your new Create media selection window seems nice, but it is VERY SLOW when working with many videos that are offloaded from the local drives by OneDrive.
Just trying to create a simple new video project causes ALL of the videos in the "favorites" drive to completely download again, which can take a VERY long time... This before anything can be selected!
If you must, create thumbnails of files for selection. But, at least offer a default list of filenames ONLY without any thumbnails or scrubbing options. As it is, this new "create" screen is causing a HUGE delay in doing any work.

Yeah, that's what I'm doing, but the first time, it selected some "Favorite" folder and took an HOUR before I could actually click Create. When I attempted to cancel the OneDrive downloads, Premiere Pro crashed. I think I finally have it pointing to a pretty empty folder so I can bypass the screen, but wow! what a poorly implemented new feature!

As a workaround you can also skip the import screen and go directly into the editing tab. This would then allow you to e.g. drag the files into your project from the os folder view or using the media browser.
