    My bin contents import in as last created first. You're telling me there is currently NO way to reverse sort in icon view?

    When I switch to list view and click Name, of course I get the expected reverse sort.

    Why is this not available in icon view??

    Need ability to sort on just about everything available in list view, but in icon view.

    Right now, Freeform Icon View is the only way to display these by criteria such as creation date- because you can re-arrange them BY HAND..

    I'd rather be a postman- they get paid for sorting.

    I do like the Align to Grid command from the popup menu when one or more icons is selected. But frankly, I'd rather not go scrolling to the bottom the popup for this. I'd like to see it in a button bar. Now I have to go looking for the keyboard shortcut.

    Close Gap is a one-off command, which I've mapped to Control-G. But still, I'd rather be a postman. Where's the Close ALL Gaps command?

    Since Control-G is Close Gap, then perhaps Control-OPTION-G could de-gap all voids between clips in a track, and perhaps Control-Option-Command could de-gap an entire sequence.

    This follows a macro pattern I established with the Add Edit command, which I've got on Control-V, and Control-Option-V, which gives me the Add Edit All Tracks command. Works a peach.

    Best, as always,
    Loren

    "FCP7 they had this as an option. "

    Where? I built the Final Cut Pro KeyGuide for FCP 2- through 7. In 7, 450 commands are wired into the keys. Another 450 lay under the hood for customizing commands, but I never encountered the Function as a mappable option. It's not a bad idea, especially on the Mac laptops, but I never saw support for the Function key. I always thought it was a hard-wired Mac OS tool.

    Okay, I got a quick degree from MIT, examined my Project Settings> Ingest pane. What a pane. There it was, set to AVC-INTRA. Must have defaulted to that. Went down the popup list to ProRes-- and even though I see no ProRes (HQ) preset, ingesting an HQ seems to come in as... HQ!

    It's a Premiere problem, not MedEnc. Solved.

    Best, as always,

    Further detail:

    Operator error its entirely possible. Thing is, I usually don’t touch ME. So, when I import a 4K ProRes (HQ) file into my Premiere Pro project, and it comes in, I see it listed correctly— and then transforms magically into an MXF file with the dimensions 1280 X 720— whoa!! I’m not ready for that.
    This is happening persistently.

    So I tried analyzing the ME presets. Apparently I have two sets of ProRes codecs— one set is actually oP1a in an MXF wrapper, the other is “pure” ProRes (HQ) in a .MOV wrapper.

    So I uninstalled v 4.1 just as I uninstalled V 4.1 of PPRo for its bad behavior.

    At this point, I’m using ME 4.0.4 with PPro 4.0.4.

    And it’s still happening. What am I doing wrong??

    HELP.

    Appending my bug report on displaying Bins as separate windows:

    Yes, the commands DO work. But they generate and place bins way out of the "G world." To explain:

    Many editors work with multiple monitors, often side by side. I don’t have the space to spread them out laterally. So I have a three-monitor setup like a pyramid, arranged with a 27” LG 4K atop two 21” HD Acer’s. The world is continuous and the mouse cursor can move easily up-down-across between any of them.

    I don’t know about Windows systems, but Apple easily supports this arrangement in Display Prefs and it’s excellent for both editing and finishing operations in one app: Premiere Pro. Premiere’s superb customization allows such arrangements.

    I place Premiere’s Program Monitor window in the top screen. That is all. Nothing else is expected in this space- it’s for 709 reference and client viewing.

    The two lower HD screens are occupied by everything else. I have the Project pane, History, Marker panels, Effects, Big Timecode on the left monitor. I have Timeline panels and Source monitor, with Audio, Lumetri and Scopes panes on the right.

    For me, this is nirvana. I saved this arrangement as a Triple-screen workspace, and Premiere honors it every time I boot up.

    When it comes to pulling bins out into separate windows, I have always expected that each appear aside the Project panel, like in Avid, or classic FCP 7.

    Well, the existing code seems to place a bin window in the topmost monitor, perhaps assuming that this is the top edge of the monitor holding the Project pane.

    But it’s not. The world includes space above the lower monitors.

    I wouldn’t even think of looking up there, I just thought the commands were broken. But finally I had nowhere else to look, and dragged Program pane aside, and lo, there was the bottom half of a bin window I had invoked— and no way to get it back down. The bin window shoots up BEHIND the Program monitor, and its top half is out of reach: the bin cannot even be dragged back down to where it belongs— until user REBOOTS.

    When I restarted Premiere, the entire Bin window appears- still parked in the upmost monitor, but now appearing in whole, allowing me to drag it down by title bar to the screen it belongs in. This is great, but real disruption to workflow.

    A second boot confirms the bin stays where put.

    Best, as always,
    Loren

    We do monitor User Voice; we share your disappointment that we don’t have a reproducible case, for this issue.

    If you can reliably reproduce the ‘low level exception’ problem, on your system, please contact Support and provide them with any files and source media required for that repro case, as well as (important!) step-by-step instructions on how you can reproduce the issue.

    We’re eager to pursue the issue further.

    GPU rendering and GPU for live 4K playback is critically needed. V 14.1 destroys all connection to the D500 GPU's in my 2013 Mac Pro. They were really cooking nicely in 14.0.4.

    I went a little insane over these Exception error messages until I realized Adobe DOES have a backstep strategy- it simply doesn't advertise it in enough places. Uninstaller is in the Premiere folder. The minute you invoke it, you get new options next to the Premiere icon in the CC Desktop app.

    I reinstalled 4.04, and lo, there are my GPU's, working on a couple streams of live playback of 4K ProRes (HQ) and on renders.

    Looking forward to 14.2.

    No crash yet. but I get the same error message, and while rendering I also get

    "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (Metal) (Accelerated Renderer2)

    Tasty.

    And Activity Monitor shows absolutely no GPU activity.

    Really tasty. Ready to throw another 600 a year on this baby.

    Best, as always,
    Loren

    How about opening a window when you simply right-click in the PROJECT panel? This is basic to project organization. This suggestion is now two years old, and it's time to implement, I have found no workaround, no keyboard shortcut to open it. That's brain dead. Pretty fundamental!

    First, further issues-

    • Absolutely NO GPU support. Activity Monitor reveals a back void for the GPU graphs.

    • Media Encoder insists upon using a non-ProRes codec, "OP1a"- and encodes movies from After Effects scaled down from DCI 4K to HDV 1280 X 720,

    And delivered as MXF files, for God's sake. How can this not be tested. Are we Forever Beta here?

    There is no way to purge the undesired presets for OP1a- MXF. There seems to be no way to prioritize ProRes 422 (HQ).

    Second, downgrading:

    • Easy to find procedural steps for backstepping to a previous functional version is CRUCIAL. If you search on "How to down-grade to previous version of Premiere Pro" you get absolutely.... nothing.

    • The Uninstaller for each CC program is supplied without comment in every application folder.

    • I uninstalled Premiere V 4.1 and removed this disruptor from my life.

    • Lo and behold, in the dreaded CC Desktop window, suddenly an option appears for "Older versions" of Premiere Pro. Hallelujah .

    And that is how I avoided further disruption-- by re-installing Premiere Pro CC 4.04. And suddenly my D500 dual GPU's were cranking again in concert with all 8 CPU cores and all 8 virtual cores, on my 2013 Mac Pro.

    Imagine if I had chosen to upgrade in the middle of a client project, and not my own.

    Hopefully, this simple procedure will make itself commonly available under simple search?

    Do let us know how Media Encoder can be tamed, and any future versions of Premiere Pro CC NOT labeled "14.1", March 2020.

    It's interesting how breathlessly new features such as "Productions" appear, and nothing to solve "Disruptions." Reorder your priorities. We will wait.

    I apologize for my spontaneous insults. When Premiere works, it SHINES. I don't mind waiting for a new version, combed for all the obvious bugs and defects.

    Best, as always,
    Loren
