    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,…

    Dear Adobe,

    It's a huge resounding yes, please from me. #AdobeOnLinux

    Please note, Adobe, that I am, lilke many in my situation, simply locked into Windows for one reason and one reason only, Adobe software; whilst software from all other developers either have Linux-support, or there are alternatives giving us users a choice. But it takes only not having choice in one area, in this case creative tools, in order for us users not to have complete freedom to move between operating systems as we wish.

    Please note that I have been into computers for quite some time now and I chose Windows because, at the time, it was the best and most widely used operating system around. However, best it is no more thanks to Microsoft whom have takee something good and turned into into a great unstable mess with more and more limitations and unwanted changes being brutally forced upon us users. As such, we want out of our virtual prisons. Adobe could be our leading saviour.

    Adobe, all we users want are quality software products, Adobe's offerings actually don't fit this mould as their software, like Microsoft's, is loosing focus of what their users want. However, since there are no alternatives, we users stick around. But the loyalty isn't there because Adobe has shown little loyalty to us users. Respect and loyalty is earned. Adobe can easily earn both and more. All they need to do is turn user-centric to empower us users and we will fully embrace Adobe and their products running on our choice of operating systems. Adobe would earn our respect and loyalty in a heartbeat. It would also garner many new users to follow in our path. Adobe would be great again.

    Sure, such a move would be met with resistance both within Adobe and externally, especially from Microsoft. I just hope the people in power are visionaries and will not be deterred by the naysayers.

    Adobe, let's make 2019 be the year Adobe and its users make history, the year of beta releases galore; and, come New Year 2020, the first stable version 1.0 of the Adobe Creative Suite for Linux 2020.

    Cheers,
    -Andreas

    @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.

    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.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    @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).

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    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.

    @Frederick Montero: I highly recommend logging the Media Encoder issue as a separate issue.

    Can you give us more detail on specifically which plug-ins were causing After Effects to hang during launch?

    After Effects already does this when it can, but detecting the cause of crashes is not as simple as it seems as first. The cause of the crash may not always be clear, and may not necessarily be the plug-in itself but After Effects crashing due to a bad (or valid) request.

    For example (theoretically; this is a simplified example, not a real-world case), using the After Effects API, a plug-in may request After Effects to allocate some memory that is more than is available on the system. The bug is clearly the bad request from the plug-in, but if After Effects doesn’t trap that request and reject it, After Effects could end up in a bad state and crashing.

    That’s why we need to know what specific plug-in is causing…

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    Sorry, I have way too many plug-ins installed and not enough time to perform a divide and conquer style hunt to work out which one is playing up. Luckily I don't require any of these for the projects I am working on and will most likely update them when I do. For your information, I had Newton, Plexus, RealGlow, and Red Giant Universe installed. Can't say which versions at this stage without digging deeper.

    I renamed C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-ins\7.0\MediaCore.disabled. This resolved the issue. Obviously a plug-in is incompatible. Suggest After Effects detects that it has hung loading a plug-in and suggests to disable it instead of hanging like this.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    Uninstalled and re-installed After Effects 2019 resetting settings. Did not help. Installed latest 2018 version next to 2019 and 2018 version runs OK yet 2019 version won't run. This on Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview version 1809 build 18262.1000.

    What you’re suggesting would lead to a full on revision of the feature – therefore I’d like to ask a couple of additional questions:
    what kind of footage do you usually try to stabilize with the Warp Stabilizer? And how much tweaking of the settings do you do on average?

    Thanks
    Patrick

    @Andrew and Markus: I'm glad people are realising that software is supposed to **work for them** and not the other way around. Keep the pressure on Adobe and, hopefully, they will start taking action and changing their software to become user-centric, as it should be.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    I've never understood why the effect cannot just do that, i.e., perform a hidden pre-compose/sub-sequence.

    @Anonymous: Please raise a separate ticket.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    @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.

    Andreas Toth commented  · 

    I agree with @Andrew about needing padding.
