    I'm killing time waiting for a project to "load" - ie, mysteriously access my (very fast) drives and horde my (very fast) cpu for several minutes while locking me out of doing any actual work. I think I've got a few more minutes, so I'll chime in.

    I've already started migrating work I would normally do in Premiere to Resolve. It's going ok but I'd rather Premiere just work. Every update I see a lot of bug fixes that I'm sure other people are happy about, but they never address these foundational usability and scalability issues. It's become a very painful platform to use professionally for large projects, and I'm sad about that. Sometimes I get mad, today I'm just sad.

    So...Adobe, PRIORITIZE STABILITY. Yes, we know that's vague, but there are so many stability/performance problems it feels futile for us users to wack-a-mole each one here on uservoice. The wack-a-moling is kinda your job cause they're your stupid moles. It seems obvious to most of us that you have some systemic stability problems and that is what we are saying we're getting really tired of. There are basic problems that have been reported for years, and if anybody there was testing the software rigorously they'd have know about it. We throw good money at this every month and you have people you pay good money every month to test the software and make the software more stable. From the customers point of view something isn't adding up about that arrangement.

    Well, I've got some time to kill while I wait for a few hundred DJI thumbnails to load. So... grabbing a coffee, chiming in on this thread. I really had some momentum going there. The creative part of my soul just died a little bit more. It will again later today when I have to load a few hundred GH5 thumbnails. Or if I dare close this bin and open it again later.

    DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.

    I have a very fast machine and very fast drives. They deliver, Premiere does not. I'd even use proxies as a (super lame) workaround if those didn't come with massive headaches. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33858397-proxy-workflow-interpret-footage?tracking_code=c8b7c81a0aa5d0c378f48c90d47d7e97

    Marilken, what you're describing sounds to me like it is indeed because of the frame rate re-interpretation. This has been known issue for a while and Adobe hasn't fixed it after at least 2 years of people complaining.

    Vote for that fix here, and there is a workaround which you might find in the same thread. Has something to do with doing the interp in media encoder, can't exactly remember.

    The greyed out options in search bins issue is still here in 2020. Coming up on 2 years now!

    And there is obviously no inherent reason you can't enable these options for search bins, because those same options, in the same search bin, are available if you just go up one bin level. They only grey out when you are at the deepest level - but that's where you always are when in icon view, so those options are always greyed out in icon view which really sucks. Fix this already!

    Search bins could be so great, but so many bugs! https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/36466480-premiere-pro-cc-2019-13-0-2-search-find-bin-fi

    Also... search bin issue still problem in 12.1.1. Search bar may have been improved but not sure

    Regarding the Search Bin bug... One painful result of this issue is that you cannot assign labels to clips in a search bin in icon view. You have to be in list view and can't take advantage of those nice big icons! And you can't be all the way "in" that bin so you have to back out a level.

    To reiterate: the workaround is to use list view and go up one bin level while leaving the search bin expanded. Then you can do stuff to clips like normal.

    I'm just seeing this in 2020. Hard to believe I haven't noticed it before so it could be intermittent. Either way, super annoying and driving me nuts.

    If you switch workspaces and switch back it picks up the new name, but come on!

    The requests to improve thumbnail generation/loading (an absolute productivity-killer which Adobe should be embarrassed about) are scattered all over the place. The one with the most votes appears to be here, so please vote and comment if you haven't:

    https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33849352-save-thumbnails-cache-for-project-panel-thumbnail

    Maybe this will make them hears us better. Maybe. I personally don't care how they fix it - either through a cache, loading in the background or by just making them 10x faster to load. I have a fast modern machine and fasts storage and it's still awful. Pulling stuff off older/slower archive drives is just painful. Seems to be worse w/ h264 gop media and faster w/ prores. 422 10 bit long-gop footage from a GH5 has been about the slowest.

    This is a massive time-waster and maybe this will will get us some more traction w/ Adobe. Maybe.

    This is a little confusing... Did you mean to say the opposite of quickly?

    I'm trying to help the cause and clean this up a bit by directing folks to vote for another thread on this:
