    @Jim Simon: I think you missed the point I was making, i.e., this is required "especially now that we have hot-pluggable display adapters." This has nothing to do with using a pre-release OS, it just happens that using such an OS has highlighted an issue. Not only so, display drivers do crash on released versions as well. It just happens to happen a bit more often on a pre-release.

    @Antoine (Autokroma.com): that would mean **never** update. That doesn'y make any sense. products advance and so should users with the products, but that does not mean that products should not remain backwards compatible.

    We understand that retiring a part of the software can create issues for some users. We are doing our best to make this a slow and steady process and are adding needed features along the way. Most importantly, we have added the ability to convert Legacy Titles into Source Graphics. While not all characteristics will translate perfectly, this should give you really good results in most cases. We’re not just taking something away, we’re adding functionality to Essential Graphics constantly. Our team is working hard to make sure it meets your workflow needs. And if it doesn’t - we want to know about it. If you feel that there is a specific feature missing in Essential Graphics please create a single UserVoice post for it, e.g. for Inner and Outer Strokes. This way it is much easier for others to vote on something actionable. Please take a look at our…

    Yes, I use many bins for my legacy titles. And yes, I could explain why and my workflow to Adobe, but the fact is that these questions deviate from the real issue: remove legacy title support and people's projects will collapse forcing us to redo all our work using the graphics tools.

    I personally know such a move would affect at least 35 projects of mine each with sevearal legacy titles, some quite complex in nature. Now, I'm only one person, there will be hundreds of us, if not thousands, using legacy titles. Imagine how many projects that amounts to!

    Yes, I'm sure most of us are capable of converting all our legacy titles to the new graphics tools, but that's going to cost us an incredible amount of time in total, time which Adobe show they don't value with changes like deprecating lagacy titles; not to speak about all the various deprecated effects, effects which has had me (and I would say most others with deprecated effects) lost many hours researching alternative solutions, solution that sometimes have forced me to pay for third-party alternatives on top of my Creative Cloud subscription!

    I, like many others in my position, chose in-built effects because they were considerd stable and part of the product. No one anticipated that these, nor the legacy titles, would ever be pulled on us users.

    Adobe asks extorts us with their expensive and inflexible Creative Cloud subscription plans that milk us out of everything we've got, yet they don't value our time one iota. Adobe must stop abusing the position that they force on their their users. Adobe must turn user-centric, not Adone-centric. Users should drive the direction of products, not Adobe. After all, we are called users because we are the ones actually using the products.

    P.S. Last week I unsubscribed from Creative Cloud because I could no longer afford it.

    @TaranVH: Because additional media is added the the project to keep up with new requirements and the new media has been captured with modern equipment and requires new CODEC support that older versions of Premiere Pro doesn't support.

    One shouldn't have to do what you're suggesting if Adobe were user-centric and actually put us users first and did the hard work to ensure backwards compatibility. We, as users shouldn't have to do the work for Adobe. They should do the work for us by keeping backwards compatibility. We are, after all, the ones that pay for their software. To expect us to do extra work that costs us money on top of this is not right (it costs us users time and money when we perform workarounds).

    No, it's not fine to replace it even if there is an alternative because not having the legacy titler will break a lot of projects, projects that, in my case, are constantly evolving, for example, (educational videos tend to do that) and hence constantly need to be revisited to update material. Sometimes I have to update a video that's several years old. I've already had a lot of issues with Adobe deprecating effects to find that these projects are broken. Deprecating and removing features will break backwards compatibility is not a good thing. I'm already spending way too much time finding alternative solutions to issues forced upon me by Adobe when I should be doing more productive and creative work and not patching issues brought upon us users by Adobe making decisions that don't serve the users but them. It's selfish and not very user-centric.

    P.S. Suggesting one can just install an older version of Premiere Pro to work on older projects is not the answer for many reasons, e.g., a) depending on the age of the project, there may be drastic user interface changes between Premiere versions that interferes with workflow, b) the older version may not support the modern CODECs and/or plugins that may be needed to be used by the old project.

    @Pierre Louis Beranek: Amen to that. That's exactly right. Software should do what us paying users demand of it and not what a few people one day decided was a good idea. At the end of the day software should work for the end-users and not the other way around.

    Agreed. Not only that, but one should be able to perform text searches with optional replace of media paths within a project instead of all this magical yet buggy auto-linking. That would be flexible *and* powerful unlike this **** that we have had to endure for so long.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    I do agree, however, that, if auto-linking is enabled, that it should only auto-link based on paths one has selected, that is, it should never perform the initial auto-linking which is all guess-based but bring up the media linking dialog and then, when one re-links one media file, the system then auto-links (if the auto-linking is enabled) other missing media files that it can find under the same folder. If it cannot find any more missing media files under the same folder, then the user locates the media, wherever it exist, and the process repeats.

    OK, but I don't care for fixing auto-linking, I just want to disable it. I rather trust myself than some algorithm that is bound to fail at some point, or for an untested condition, and then not notice until the damage is done. No auto-linking for me. Power to the people.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    No, wrong. That setting is for the dialog, but that dialog only appears if there is some media that could not be auto-linked. That is, if one was to open a project, Premiere then checks if the media exist at the paths recorded, if not, Premiere tries to auto-link (this is what I don't want), and if it succeeds, it will continue opening the project without letting the user know it has re-linked some media. However, if some media fails to be auto-linked, then it displays the dialog that you refer to. The auto-linking that this dialog does is aided by the user having selected a new path for some of the media, and is not really the same as Premiere auto-linking and making uneducated guesses about where the media actually is.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    No, I don't want to open my project in offline mode, I just don't want media to be auto-linked because the auto-linking picks up incorrect media and makes a mess out of my projects.

    However, if you say there's an option to disable automatic re-linking then that's exactly what I have been looking for but haven't found.

    I just posted this one, but I have been wishing for it for years. Funny how Adobe hasn't managed to figure out that something like this has been needed during all that time: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/34934194-search-and-optionally-replace-media-paths-names

    You're welcome GHS. Yes, I agree it's shameful that this is the forum we users get to interface with Adobe. This support forum is far from being a professional support system for a supposedly professional software.

    Not only that, but it's difficult to find. All Adobe software should provide links to their appropriate support pages so that we users can easily issue support tickets as any professional software should.

    Not only that, but where are Adobe providing their feedback? What good is it if all we users do is post but no one at Adobe replies? Adobe happily take our money every month, so surely we deserve their time in return?

    As a user I would be highly offended if Adobe would think search-and-replace functionality to be beyond users' abilities. In fact, imagine if we didn’t have search-and-replace in software how painful document editing would be. In fact, if we always went for the lowest common denominator, then we would still be living in caves.

    Search-and-replace would solve a lot of issues. It would obviously be guarded by undo so that, if a user did a bad search-and-replace, they could always undo.

    By the way, Premiere already supports listing all the paths within the user interface as well as selecting individual media and replacing it with a different path. This is done by right-clicking on the header in the project tree and selecting "Metadata Display..." and then selecting "Premiere Pro Project Metadata\File Path" followed by OK. The project tree will now display the file path of each and every file-based media. To then change the path of a specific media, right-click it and select "Replace Footage..."

    Please note that After Effects compositions cannot be replaced like this: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/34933324-cannot-replace-after-effects-compositions
