    4 and a half years waiting for this very obvious fix to one of the most used features, and the fix Adobe proposes is one that won’t work properly from the start. Brilliant. That’s what we pay our money for.

    Frame count of proxies simply needs to match that of the original clip and then play back at whatever is set in the project. It’s extremely simple.

    Crucially this also applies to clips that have been manually duplicated in the project - we need to be able to set different frame rates even if they’re sharing the same proxy.

    It's not the same because for it to work in the timeline you'd need Premiere to generate a thumbnail for every frame - that is what a proxy essentially is.

    @Boy Linders - Your video just shows that computers struggle to decode Long GOP video - no real surprises there and it's why you use proxies.

    The feature request relates to the need for project panel thumbnails to be saved to disk so that Premiere doesn't re-generate them in RAM every time a bin is opened.

    Dan, that's not a solution. It's a workaround.

    A solution would simply be - as requested - to save the thumbnail cache.

    It's not a revelation that ProRes generally performs better than Long-GOP codecs. We know this already.

    @David Luís
    Turning off thumbnails isn't 'fixing' the problem. It is avoiding the problem. Big difference!

    Throwing my hat into the ring on this as well. Little things like this would be a huge help.

    I try to avoid touching the mouse so there's no way I want the position of the cursor to suddenly start affecting keyboard shortcuts.

    @Richard Herlihy - have a look at the comment from Sir Ivan below. Excalibur does that (and a lot more)

    @ Antoine - excellent work! Thank you. At least we have a workaround now.

    As a community we need to get past the idea that the multi-cam method is anything but a really poor workaround for audio syncing. It's not what it was designed for, and if we are requesting enhancements to it we're asking the wrong questions.

    When you sync audio using multi-cam:
    - Every clip ends up with a ridiculous yellow box around it when you play it in the source monitor.
    - You can't double click to load the audio into the source monitor (it just opens the multi-cam timeline).
    - There are no options to trim the synced timelines to match the video clip length.
    - You have to manually change the multi-cam timecode if you want it to match the source clip timecode

    The list goes on quite a while longer. Basically we all just want syncing to behave the way it does in Avid or Resolve, i.e. new, synced clips that contain all of the audio metadata and with the option to rename the clips based on scene/take metadata from the audio files.

    Yes, I totally agree that adding an option to sync using sound timecode is essential, but please can everyone vote for the guy asking the right questions?

    At this point I have no faith that the people behind Premiere understand the needs of higher end collaborative workflows. This request is so obvious that it shouldn't even need to be asked.

    I can't believe we're still asking for this. It's shameful from Adobe. This page alone has been up for 2.5 years, and people have been asking for syncing improvements for much longer than that.

    The multi-cam workaround is barely useable.

    Adobe, just picture this:
    You have a bin of clips. You want the matching external audio added to those clips.

    IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!

    Why has it been made so complicated?!?

    Here's what we need:

    - Provide the option to keep clip length the same as the original video
    - Provide the option to re-route audio to different channels
    - Don't change the timecode
    - Read the audio metadata and let us see it for track names
    - Don't force me to spend hours panning tracks and assigning track outputs on a clip by clip basis in order to see my waveforms
    - Don't put a fucking yellow box around every single clip

    Adobe, this isn't a complex request. Any experienced editor or AE syncing anything but the simplest of projects could demonstrate this in 15 minutes.

    Resolve has it sussed. Avid has been doing it for years. It's not complicated. Failure to address this tells people that either Adobe have no idea what they're doing or they're simply not interested in the people who expect professional workflows. I'm sick of putting up with it.

    It's astonishing that we're still waiting for the solution to this. What the **** are Adobe doing?

    How is this STILL the case over a year on!?

    And how does it only have 4 votes? Do editors not use their keyboards these days?

    "Premiere Pro 2018 latest version"

    It's crazy that over 2 years and 2 major versions on, this still hasn't been addressed.

    Yes please! Track keyframes are incredibly useful, particularly for me when using submixes. The inability for these keyframes to ripple is a major limitation.

    This gets my vote. Point tracking is needed so often and sometimes we just want it done quick and dirty track rather than 'properly' in After Effects. A quick phone screen replacement for instance, or tracking a graphic to a point on screen.
