    Hello everyone,

    first of all: thanks to all the people who joined in the last two days to vote and comment on this particular item. Please stick around and tell us what else you’d like to see implemented or improved moving forward.

    If you were wondering why this post was offline for a couple of hours: it’s because of this quick surge in votes. It triggered a spam filter (and it took me a little while to figure out how to undo this without losing the comments).

    Since several people posted in the meantime about Adobe not being interested in your feedback, let me assure you that this is about as far from the reality as it gets. We truly appreciate your candid feedback.

    That said, a word of caution: while this item is now at the top due to a person with a good following on Twitter creating awareness,…

    At least you may begin with optimizing Premiere to run stable under wine.

    Dear Patrick. You mentioned that porting may be difficult, noone outside Adobe knows what is within your code, still I believe it can be done by a single engineer with decent amount of time. It's not neccessary that it will take too much time. If Premiere uses native nvidia/amd calls, they should work just fine on Linux on driver basis. If it uses DirectX, there is a new incredible tool called DXVK. It allowes to hook DX calls via Vulkan with well enough level of performance. Some components may happen to work after minor modification using Wine, so there is no need to port everything and everywhere at least for the beginning. C# / .NET is happening on Linux natively already. Using all these tools should make the port not as expensive to build as it may seems to be. Please consider it. And yes, almost forgot, no more need to build different builds of Premiere for different Linux-systems. You may use a single Flatpak build on Ubuntu, Manjaro and other Linux distributions. Please check Flatpak (or Snap as an alternative). Also you may try to cooperate with IBM (current owner of Red Hat), Canonical (Ubuntu) or Codeweavers, maybe some Linux-company will agree to provide you with an additional englineer for your team to make the Linux version of Premiere happen.

    Many people ask for Photoshop for Linux. It already works using wine.. But Premiere isn't. That's why Premiere requires a native version at first place.

    Patrik if you read this please let us now that you are aware of Flatpak / Snap

    Ilya Korneychuk commented  · 

    Dear Patrick Palmer. Thanks for your answer. It was absolutely correct that making a port for Linux was making like several ports. However Flatpak / Snap is here - so why not to make a single Premiere flatpak instead of different versions for red hat / ubuntu / arch for example? Considering "core features" some features may be adopted via wine / mono.

    I would prefer to have the Flatpak version of Premiere for Linux. This one should work on all the distributions - both on deb- and arch- based and all the rest.

    I would love to see Adobe CC on Linux.
