Please provide an option to save project files as ASCII files instead of binary. This is particularity needed for source control (such as when checking in Premiere Pro projects into a Git repository) and for traceability (i.e., who/when changed what) but also allows project issues to be easily rectified with a simple text editor (such as performing search-and-replace of media paths or replacing one plug-in with another and do it across projects in a fraction of the time that it would take to do it manually).
Note that all professional content creation software support ASCII files including Maya.5 votes
It is not the case that all professional content creation software supports ASCII files.
Premiere Pro project files contain both XML representations of project and timeline items, as well as chunks of binary data (from third parties as well as Adobe). No user editing or modification of .prproj files is recommended, or supported. Our media asset management partners use PPro’s APIs to export representative projects, as needed.
After Effects already provides an option the export a text-only version of the AE project; .aepx files.
EVERY **** TIME YOU UPGRADE, SOMETHING BREAKS.
1) PS Type 1 fonts don't work
2) Can't relink files to clip references4 votes
Both issues are being tracked already with more detailed info here:
Auto backup to creative cloud stops working after a number of saves. It says to check permissions but the only fix I can find is to move the backed up file from the creative cloud files, or save the project under a different name, and then it starts saving again. Is there a reason why the permissions change after a number of saves?2 votes
This is a duplicate.
I like how you can start working in After Effects without creating and saving a project first. Sometimes I just want to quickly open a Premiere timeline to test a clip or an effect without creating a project file. Without this ability, I find myself having to create a bunch of 'test' prproj files that clutter my hard drive.4 votes
For now and the foreseeable future, sequences live in projects.
