  2. ASCII project files

    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.

    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.

  3. Put DVD support back into it.

    I figure that at $40 an hour you owe me about $640 for time wasted trying to figure out how to burn to DVD. Premiere Pro is priced like a professional product. It needs to act like one.

  4. Allowing kineraw to be native like red raw files . Camera company kinefinity | raw codec | kineraw

    Please allow us to edit kineraw natively inside adobe premiere . Right now it works inside fcpx and davinci
    . only thing stopping me from buying the kinefinity mavo Lf is it’s raw capability’s that work inside adobe premiere.

    Our Formats team is working on other formats and priorities, and will be for some time.

    The API we use for footage import is public; we’d be happy to help a third party write a Kineraw importer.

  5. Put Browse in Bridge back into Premiere Pro

    Now that I have the Creative Suite, I thought I would start using Bridge. Imagine my surprise to discover there is no "Browse in Bridge" function in Premiere Pro anymore. That just makes no sense.

  6. Watch Folders

    As I place assets into designated folders within the OS (videos, music, pics, GFX, SFX, etc.) they should automatically be imported into their corresponding bins inside of Premiere. It's a hassle having to organize hundreds of assets TWICE. Additionally, it's difficult to keep track of which new assets have already been imported into Premiere. Clients don't always have all assets available at the start of a project and send files through the course of the project.

    We’ve considered this, but that would allow random external users to add things to your project. For users who do want such functionality, it’s already available via third parties (like the Knights, mentioned by John Pooley).

  7. Lumetri - Make all panels individual effects

    For example if I want to use a curve prior to adding an input LUT, this would be useful. It can currently be done with the obsolete effects but new effects should be added up to date with the Lumetri ones.

    Another use is adding multiple secondaries.

  8. Bug report Premiere Pro CC 2018 Version 12.1.1 won’t import AVI files with MacBook Pro any more

    Premiere Pro CC 2018 Version 12.1.0 won’t import AVI files with MacBook Pro any more.
    Perian is installed on my os (10.12.6).
    When tested on Premiere Pro CC 2017 Version 11.1.2 same AVI files imported without problem.
    Same bug with FLV files, btw. Can import FLV into Premiere Pro cc 2017, and can't import theme into cc 2018.

    Sorry to hear that you’re having a bad experience with the Lumetri Workflow and other areas of the application. Unfortunately, your feedback isn’t actionable for us without getting more specific detail on what’s causing trouble for you. Please come back and either look at other reports already on User Voice or enter a new bug report with steps to reproduce the problem.

    Thanks

  10. quicktime 7 support

    I understand that you've removed Quicktime 7 support.

    As someone who works in a post production house in Asia, there are several codecs (i.e. XDCAM HD422 & H.264) that would still be required in the technical specifications for deliveries to particular networks to be delivered in MOV.

    This is disruptive to our processes, as we would rather keep our entire processes within Premiere but now we have to use other external software to output these.

    Would it be possible to bring back the Quicktime support until you're completely sure it's obsolete in all regions of the world?

  11. return of the good old SAA-menu-system.

    Combine the new menu structure with the good old standard saa-menu's that'll save tons of time - instead of every program having it's own menu-structure. I hate it!

  12. Dolby Digital support

    Please reinstall Dolby digital support. Without these applications you can not create surround sound on a Dvd/blu ray disc? There are some videoeditors among us who can not affort more then $200 dollars for a Dolby digital plug in?!

  13. Network Cluster Rendering

    Allow networked cluster rendering, such as what is provided with various encoding software for cinema (See DCP-O-Matic network render server). This would allow much faster encoding. It may be difficult to get this to work with interframe compression, though. Basicly, export the frame, transfer it, transcode it, and send it back. Or, alternatively, automatically split the sequence into small clips (from keyframe to keyframe) (similar to Youtube's DASH), and render them over the network, assembling them as they stream back in.

  16. fix the update process

    It is not ok, that a post dot update (12DOT1) messes up the file interchangeability. If on one machine the messed up update makes it impossible to export the work you did into a usable codec (hap, dds or any other QT-codec that is being used by pro-standard media servers like pandoras box or others) you have to be able to transfer the file (and working time) to another machine running 12.1 to export your work.
    Bring back qt7 and backward compatibility, please!

    OS level support for old codecs was removed.

    Rather than create new support for old formats, PPro will instead invest in support for popular modern formats.

    PPro supports a unified plug-in directory for all installed PPro versions.

  17. ring out

    There should be an audio transition for creating a "Ring Out," where the end of a song reverbs out over time. Currently to do this requires chopping off the last note of a song, nesting that into a sequence, applying reverb to the nest, and crossfading it with the original song clip. A faster, more elegant way to do this would be very much appreciate and super-useful; it would save me a ton of time.

  18. Adobe Paid version with limitations like Davinci resolve's & Avid's free version

    Option for a paid version.... eg: $300 or other price limited to 4096x2160 60p (supporting newer cameras) like the c200, eva1, blackmagic etc. avid & resolve have both & remove certain features like limiting the editing software to UHD 3840x2160 60p Free version on both resove & avid... A one time paid version with 4096x2160 60p with raw file support eg: c200, blackmagic.

  19. Create a beta testing community so the rest of us don't have to drown in bugs

    I'm bored of this software being absolutely riddled with bugs now.
    Why don't you start testing features before releasing them?
    You do? Test them more.
    Or create a community of beta testers who are expecting bug-ridden software, and don't charge them the monthly subscription you're charging me.

    I’m gonna close this thread as this is in many ways non-actionable feedback.

    For one thing, there’s a beta testing community, and it is large and active. Which addresses the subject line.

    As for the bugs listed in the comments: it’s ideal to pick one topic and add detail to it (or vote on something that’s already described like is the case for all the bugs listed here).

    On a general note: I appreciate the sentiment, and there’s already a plan in motion to shift towards more investment in stability and performance.

    Bugs addressed with 12.1. and 12.1.1 are listed here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/kb/fixed-issues.html

    A 12.1.2 release is in the works and will address a large number of concerns raised here on user voice and on the forums.

    As always, thanks for the candid feedback. Keep it coming.

    Patrick

  20. Stop adding new features and work on stability

    I'm sure we all admire your enthusiasm for adding new features and abilities to PP. But it is all for nought if you don't start thinking about stability. Perhaps it's fine for you in sterile lab environments but out in the wild it's a problem and you're losing users left and right to other NLEs.

    I’m gonna close this request as it is neither a bug report nor a feature request, and therefore non-actionable for the product team.

    We hear you on the overall sentiment, though – please come back and either look at the other requests already filed and vote for them, or enter a specific request or bug report if it’s not on user voice yet.

    Thanks
    Patrick
