    All,


    first of all I wanted to thank everyone for making this a productive conversation over the last couple of days.


    As several people responded to my comment about keeping the tone civilised, I need to dwell on that for a minute. Please hear me out, this is important to everyone on my crew and I hope it will be to you.


    Saying that we shouldn't be surprised when things get heated is very problematic in my opinion. How do you expect a junior person on my team to respond to a technical question when it is combined with something that can easily be described as hate speech? How do you think we can actually come together on actual issues when there's already the assumption that we're a big faceless corporation, not even listening to our customers?


    People on my team have received threats. I've been there over the years,…

    I've created a new topic for the Import screen which I feel needs improvement (I looked but couldn't find an existing thread. If there is one, please let me know!):

    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/45366871-new-import-screen-needs-improvement

    Feel free to add.

    Just want to add, in the old Export screen, 'Match Source - High Bitrate' used to be the default which meant for test exports or rough exports for clients, I didn't have to change anything.

    Now for some reason it defaults to High Quality 1080p HD which means unless I remember or catch it, anything that isn't 16:9 has black bars.

    It's a minor but annoying thing!

    Another one, CMD + M no longer works to export, even though it's still listed in File > Export > Media as the correct shortcut.

    Hi Patrick,

    I agree people do get a little too heated here! But just to give you some insight, I think this is an attitude that Adobe has fostered across many of its programs, not just Premiere Pro.

    There's a general lack of consistency, and while it's not your teams fault, you certainly feel the brunt of the frustration. Some examples are:
    - Shortcuts being different between InDesign and Illustrator: and this goes to your point of CMD + Enter triggering export. We don't want that. We want the universal shortcuts to work
    - Illustrator not having a Reveal in Finder yet (after many years of feature requests)
    - Photoshop resize behaving in the opposite manor to other Adobe programs
    - Multi-core support in After Effects (I think this may be too big of a challenge for the AE engineers...)
    Just some examples...

    I actually don't mind the new design, but yes there are definitely many of changes that need to be made. I think the main thing if you want to reduce mileage is, this shouldn't be a full screen export window. Video editing works best on Ultrawide monitors, but the export screen does not.

    I also found the New Project window got in the way by being slow and clunky, before even trying to import any media (I always do this via drag and drop anyway). It seemed to lag A LOT. Haven't had this issue with the export window. As with before, I tried to summarise people's grievances. Not all of these may be important, but all are worth considering (and some may already be fixed):

    - Slow/clunky performance reported. Wasn’t an issue with the old interface.
    - Seems ‘dumbed down’ – contrary to the Premiere PRO userbase
    - Adobe fixing something that wasn’t broken instead of focusing on bugs, making Premiere Pro faster etc
    - No easy way to ‘Cancel’ exports unless you’re familiar with the new tabs on the top left (Home, Import, Edit, Export)
    - Tabs don’t stay open after you click them. This should be an option (maybe in preferences?) for those that need to edit video and audio settings simultaneously
    - Vimeo.com Media Encoder/Premiere Pro integration broken (requires sign in every time)
    - Export settings of a project don’t Auto Save (ie – next time you export you need to input all options again)
    - The new presets dropdown list has more padding and therefore takes up more space and requires more scrolling to see all options than the last interface)
    - New export UI flow is broken. Export button on opposite side to settings etc. All settings and buttons should be on one side and the source/program video window should be on the other to save time, especially on large monitors
    - Window is not resizable or moveable: problematic especially on large monitors
    - Saving over export presets is now much more difficult, requiring you to write the name of the preset that is being overwritten and typing it in manually
    - Due to platform agnostic features, OS shortcuts often don’t work
    - Allow keyboard entry in all drop-downs to allow quick searching of presets (ie – hit Q to automatically scroll to ‘Quicktime’
    - ‘Enter’/’Return’ doesn’t trigger Export
    - The ethos should be ‘less pointing and clicking’. This new export window requires more clicks
    - Captions no longer part of the ‘Metadata’ tab
    - Ability to quickly overwrite renders – selecting the previous file instead of the file path
    - Exporting audio wav file starts timecode at 0:00:00 instead of the location of the audio file
    - Why separate the file name and location boxes? They’ve always been one-in-the-same. Again, LESS clicks not more please…
    - - Can't see files in folder when I change folder location. (even same file type)
    - Can't change name of file from change folder location.
    - Can't rename files by clicking file that already exists and adjusting which adds an incredible amount of extra work for me.
    - Can't see all settings without scrolling/using drop downs.
    - Can't separate export tab into a window
    - Can't resize panels properly
    - Can't swap panels
    - If you’re going to roll out new interfaces, please test and make sure they work first
    - Critical settings such as bitrate hidden under two submenus
    - Ability to be able to save Export Workspace
    - 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.
    - The export button must be mouse-clicked. Hitting enter/return doesn't work.
    - 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.

    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.

    I'm having this issue also. The two red logos are the same file, one from CC Libraries and one from Finder. They look completely different.
