    Please add "Small Caps Size" control in addition to the other character controls from the old title tool.
    Please bear with me. I'm just adding items here as I force myself to use it more and realize the missing things.

    The biggest thing though is the inability to do long credit roll paragraph texts (as requested in another post)

    Thanks!

    When adding a graphic image element to an ESG title module, I do not have the ability to add a drop shadow, as I did inside the old Title Tool. Can that be added?
    For example, I am doing a slate at the end of a commercial with the company logo and the informational text underneath. I can add drop shadow to the text, but not to the company logo above. Yes, I COULD do it on two separate lines on the timeline, and add the drop shadow that way. However, for another example, if I am adding a graphic to a credit roll, it would be nice to be able to add a drop shadow that matches the text drop shadow.

    Thanks!

    Still having issues with MXFs re-indexing every time the timeline is opened and the files are accessed. Any ideas?

    @kevin
    Sorry, yes, this is with 15.2.0 on a Windows/64 machine with intel i7, 6-core, 32GB RAM, GTX1080.
    Projects that have these MXF files open fine, but the moment you go to access the file in the bin or on the timeline, the first time opening the project, it must re-scan the MXF. As for the M2T's, those, it re-indexes every time you open the project (actually shows it doing so in the progress bar in the lower right corner. The MXF re-scan does not show. I had to do some hunting to see why no video would show up. Then saw the HDD going full-bore reading that MXF file.

    Thanks!

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks. I do understand that. But one of the things I need (and I have to believe others do as well) is be able to copy and paste a credit list for a credit roll. And, if these are in separate layers, if I have to make a change to a credit roll (one that increases or decreases lines) I do not want to have to go back and re adjust all my layers for spacing, alignment, etc. I hope this makes sense. This is critical.
    To better illustrate, Imagine I am doing a 200-300 - line credit roll for a feature film. Now, this information comes to me in a formatted word document. Previously, in the title tool, I could simply copy from the document and paste into a "paragraph" text box and the formatting would follow. Now, say I need to add about 12 lines to the credit roll, halfway through. Unless I am wrong, with EGP, I cannot easily do that.
    In EGP, I could not have done it this simply in the first place, I would have had to paste the credit roll into SEVERAL layers to get all 200 to 300 lines of credits. Then, if I needed to add more lines, I would have had to shuffle all the layers below the addition down and re-align everything. With the old title tool, I could have simply pasted them in and dragged the size of the paragraph box down at the end of the roll to include the new lines.

    Is there a way to put this functionality into EGP or is there an easy way to do this 200 line credit roll in EGP that I am missing?

    Thanks!

    PLEASE Help! I do not know how to make this work efficiently in Essential Graphics!

    Alright. I tried and tried. And, with the long text list, the box became SO unresponsive, I HAD to switch to the old title tool just so I could finish the show in time for broadcast.

    Agreed! There are still SO many things the legacy titler can do that Essential Graphic cannot.
    I just installed the latest update 15.2.0 and received a warning that the title tool will be going away.
    You had better be sure that Essential Graphics can do EVERYTHING:
    - Insert graphics into scrolling/crawling titles
    - Position, Distance, Size, and Spread to drop shadows
    - Multiple strokes
    - Shape layers
    - Text on path
    - A fast font browser
    - ALL the font metrics tools... ALL
    - ALL the paragraph alignment tools
    - Positioning tools (alignment tools)

    Question... I know you have forums, but do you even have a forum where you actually discuss your future plans? Perhaps that would be a great way to make useful updates without killing your user base from shock.
    And you say, "Well, we've been saying Legacy Titler is going away for years." Well yeah, that's great, but you have to have a fully-functional basic titler first. The only thing good about Essential Graphics are MOGRTs. That's it. As for a simple titler, it's a pain. Why has this been such a botched effort. And yes, it has been, ever since you made the simple change of "ctrl+T" no longer starting legacy titler all those years ago. Rather than introducing Essential Graphics while it was in development, you foisted an incomplete application on us and left legacy titler to rot. Why?

    Also, just a little more experimenting... I rendered the sequence directly in Premiere. Noticed 1-2GB less VRAM usage overall. What could be causing this?

    Matt,

    I am not actually sure why they are 32 bit files. The recording device is a Clark-Teknik DN32-LIVE (Multi-track recorder that goes in the card slot of the Behringer X32). The output of the Behringer X32 console DACs is only 16bit / 48KHz. So, that may be a "Music Group" question. I don't know if you have any sort of relationship with them.

    As for workflow, I am recording a performance in a TV studio for a music show. The director gets the live mix for editing. Then, I take the tracks in Audition, make the final broadcast mix, and then they do a "layback" to the timeline in Premiere just before exporting.

    Hope that helps! Thanks!

    Apparently I can't actually attach a file here. Is there a better way to get you a sample multi-channel WAV file to you?

    Thanks!

    HELP!!
    I am still having this issue. Can anyone help me?
    I have attached a sample 32-track file for analysis. This file, when opened in audition 13.0.13.46 on a Windows 10 PC with 32GB RAM, etc. does not generate a .PKF file. Can you tell me what is wrong with these files?

    Hey Matt Stenger,

    This is a multi-channel WAV file. And I already did check those boxes and the drives, as you can tell by the fact I noticed PKF files generated for certain WAV files, but not the multi-channel ones. How large of a file can I attach here, or do I need to submit a file a different way for analysis?

    Thanks

    Is there a solution to this problem? In my case, this has absolutely nothing to do with drive latency. Older versions of Premiere did not have any problems with M2T files in this same configuration. When this problem first showed up, I could delete all the .MPGINDEX files, have PPro recreate them and they would usually play. Now, the M2T files will no longer play in the timeline in 14.9 (52). Matter of fact, it locks up the timeline and Premiere must be restarted in order to continue.
    CAN THIS BE FIXED? CALL ME OR MESSAGE ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU EVERY PIECE OF DATA I HAVE ON THE TOPIC. It is becoming very problematic to edit archived stock footage that was shot in the MPEG2 Transport format (HDV).
    PLEASE!!!!!
