    @Alex Elkins
    You're under-thinking it.
    Exactly HOW does the user select a different track? Right now, it uses the track targeting, but that must be done by manually clicking each layer on or off, and is also used for tons of other stuff. Then the editor would paste, and then have to return the track targeting to what it was. more annoying clicking.
    Source patching makes more sense. It's already used for insert/overwrite, and does not affect anything else like Q and W (ripple trim)
    Top-most targeted track, and top-most empty track also make sense.
    So, this can all be done wither with different dedicated shortcuts per command, by adding default pasting behavior options, or best of all, both.

    I personally had another idea for how to do this: Not with several different shortcuts, but as a global preference. This has the advantage of not requiring two or more shortcuts to be mapped, all related to slightly different "paste" functionality. Personally, I think the default behavior is stupid anyway, and it should be changed, even if we do also get additional shortcuts for different track pasting behaviors.

    "
    Pasted video clips currently go on the lowest numbered (and unlocked) targeted track by default. This is quite annoying, since the user probably already has something there. Please give us the following option/preference:
    Pasted video/audio clips go to:
    ⚪︎Lowest number targeted track
    ⚪︎Highest number targeted track
    ◉Source patching
    ⚪︎Same as copied track(s)
    ⚪︎ V▭ and A▭ (Choose specific tracks)
    "

    This is item 78 on my spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dVJb7kI_ZETLavrplfARgn9gL8HUpvkq6A0jCPxqA3w/edit#gid=1133868629

    An additional shortcut has been recommended.

    "Vastly improving pasting is simple: Give users the ability to choose 'on the fly' where they want their media pasted or insert-pasted:
    1. on the lowest enabled track (current behavior)
    2. on the highest enabled track
    3. on the same track in was copied from"

    @jim_simon
    The trouble is the track targeting is also used for a ton of other stuff, like Ripple Trim to Next/Previous edit, (Q and W,) Go to Previous/Next Edit Point, (Up/Down keys) and more. As a result, I pretty much have to leave it ON for all tracks at all times.

    My suggestion to fix all this is as follows:

    Pasted video clips currently go on the lowest numbered (and unlocked) targeted track by default. This is quite annoying, since the user probably already has something there. Give us the following option/preference:
    Pasted video/audio clips go to:
    ⚪︎Lowest number targeted track
    ⚪︎Highest number targeted track
    ◉Source patching
    ⚪︎Same as copied track(s)
    ⚪︎ V▭ and A▭ (Choose specific tracks)

    IMPORTANT: Note my use of the term "lowest number." this is referring to the V1 V2, A1 A2 track numbering.
    This is because audio track numbering is "mirrored" from video track numbering.

    This is item # 78 in my speadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dVJb7kI_ZETLavrplfARgn9gL8HUpvkq6A0jCPxqA3w/edit#gid=1133868629

    I noticed literally just today that you can save bin view presets. This might help you, try it out!

    Ah, yes... I know what you mean.
    My current workaround is to always save a backup workspace (or two) whenever I create a workspace I am really happy with.
    https://i.imgur.com/FMsVXm6.png
    Odds are, at least one of these will always function properly!
    Also, assign a shortcut to the command "reset to saved workspace." This has saved my bacon many times!

    I don't know for sure, but it's possible that Finder does something like my "I-frame-first" fast scrubbing.

    I don't think Adobe should listen more to "influencers" than anyone else. while I do have a reputation for good ideas, the idea itself is what is valuable, not the person suggesting it.

    Okay, people are telling me they're COLOR PICKERS, not "eye droppers." Yeah. That's probably a better name for them.

    I STRONGLY suggest that you have to click on the wrench, then enable "layer dragging mode," before this behavior becomes available. Then, you can drag tracks around with left click+ drag, and turn it back off when you're done.

    If this feature cannot be turned off, AND it uses left click + drag, that's far too EASY to accidentally set off. Everyone's going to have to be super careful to not move the cursor at all when they're just trying to click to lock tracks or solo or make them invisible or whatever. And then Adobe is gonna get a lot of angry people complaining on the forums that their tracks keep getting out of order.

    By making it a toggle-able setting, everyone's needs are satisfied.

    It's because of UI scaling. If you set it to 100%, the issue is resolved.
    But then you have a much bigger problem.
    Or should I say, SMALLER, har har.

    @Sami I snap to transitions occasionally. But I still totally want the OPTION to turn that functionality off. The 2-3 frame transitions sound AWFUL for the current snapping behaviour.

    @Morten Bredal
    There is a way to turn snapping off. The default shortcut is "S."
    This feature request is about getting more options for what is and is not included in that snapping.

    Note that this should only occur when "ripple sequence markers" is enabled.
    WORKAROUND: It can presently be done by using the ripple trim tool - you just have to strategically find an edge of a clip to move way over. It can be quite annoying.
    Basically the Track select forward (and backward) tool is useless to me until this is fixed.

    What do you mean? It does scale larger when you make the panel larger. Images attached.
    Or, maybe it didn't used to work this way in October 2018, and they did add this feature? In that case, this should be marked as "completed."

    It is possible to rotate hues using lumetri's hue vs hue. It doesn't work EXACTLY like fast color corrector, but it's pretty similar. I even made a video where I compare several different methods of doing this. The relevant part begins at 7:54:

    You're not gonna like it.
    HOW TO SAVE ALL YOUR LEGACY TITLES PERMANENTLY:
    Create a new sequence with the same resolution as those titles.
    place all the titles onto the sequence.
    highlight them all, and open up the Clip Speed / Duration panel. (i believe it is CTRL R by default)
    Change the duration to 00:00:00:01 (so, one frame each) and CHECK ON the "ripple edit, shift trailing clips" checkbox.
    Press OK.
    Now you should have a sequence with all your titles one 1 frame each.
    Now, export that sequence as Format: PNG, PNG Sequence with Alpha.
    Make a new folder and let 'em export.
    Now, the exported pngs will no longer be editable in Premiere's legacy titler, but you will at least have saved them all in full quality. And you can use photoshop. Yep.

    Fun fact... the Adobe guys didn't program the "legacy" titler. They bought the code from someone else. That's why it's packed with so many features, and has so many integrated shortcuts.

    I'm just glad that other people are as upset at its potential deletion as I am.

    TaranVH commented  · 

    Oh, I forgot one of the most important features of the legacy titler: Multiple lines per text box.
    Premiere's new text tool DOES have this, but the Essential Graphics that you create in After Effects and import into Premiere... Do NOT have multiple lines. which is honestly really annoying... deleting just one line in a big list of credits, for example, requires a bunch of copy/pasting across text box fields.

    Also, dang, it really is convenient to be able to click on a (legacy) title style and have all the settings loaded instantly...

    @andreas For archival purposes, it might be best for you to NOT just have the exported video file. Instead, separate it into layers - one video export will be A-roll, another will be B-roll, and another will be graphics. You'd want minimal compression. Personally, I'd use 10-bit cineform with alpha for this (though I think it does tend to make gradients look banded.)
    At the same time, export a multi-track audio or .ts file, with dialogue on its own track(s), sound effects on its own track, and music on its own track.
    Obviously, this would require more labor, but it makes your content 100% future-proof. Now, no matter what NLE you are using, no matter what year or version, you will easily be able to re-cut an old episode. Even if cineform is no longer supported by any NLE in the future, you will surely be able to transcode it with a program like handbrake or something.
    You can even build new episodes with this process in mind - always keeping all your music confined to specific audio tracks.
    Personally, we even keep ALL of our original assets, like B-roll shots, uncompressed. So if we ever need to use a shot again, it's easy for me to go back to that project, open the B-roll folder, find the shot, and use it in another video. But I doubt you have 2 petabytes of storage like we do...

    @andreas But you didn't need those codecs and plugins when those projects were originally created. So why would you need them now?
    Every time you update an older project, I certainly hope you are still saving your older .prproj file. You never know what adobe might choose to remove.
    The absolute best solution for you will be to keep an older copy of Premiere, for use with those older projects... which is why it's so important that Adobe should keep them available... which they have not done: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2413891
    So you better download the version(s) that you'll need, right NOW. And back it up somewhere.

    It's also worth noting that Essential Graphics turns the timeline red, and is very slow to load and render.
    I'm currently rendering 4K on my top-of-the-line machine:
    Intel Core i7-6950X CPU @ 3.00GHz 3.00GHz
    64.0 GB RAM
    Titan X (Generation 9)
    And it's taking 3 seconds to render a single frame. https://i.imgur.com/JGajDZT.png

    Had I used the legacy titler instead, this would be done rendering by now.

    I must agree. I'd absolutely hate to lost the legacy titler tool. Even as a very advanced user, I use it every day. It's simple. Effective. Quick and dirty.

    The legacy titler tool is basically a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) raster-based tool... like having a better version of MS Paint right inside of Premiere.
    Essential graphics is basically a vector-based tool. You can do a lot of cool stuff with it, but there is a lot to learn and keep track of, a lot of ways for it to go wrong, and even a lot that is still (AFAIK) missing:
    Gradients!
    Underline?
    Text ***** control!
    Small caps size control!
    Rounded rectangles with X and Y distortion and fillet size adjustments
    Multiple inner and outer strokes
    Title styles to instantly change font/color/stroke/etc
    The PEN TOOL!!
    The list goes on.

    The legacy titler tool is like an axe. The axe head might be a little loose, (it's still a bit buggy) but it gets the job done when you just need to hack off a few branches.

    Don't force your users to use a chainsaw, when they just want to use an axe.

    There is a solution for this one, but you might not like it.
    It has to do with Windows' UI scaling.
