    Thanks for your input on how to improve the browser and the details on how you are organizing your Motion Graphics templates.

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    I saw someone here mention Motion Factory (www.motionfactory.io). Thank you! It solves the Essential Graphics Panel's (EGP) issues:
    1. The template names displayed are whatever file names you give to your files! This means you can easily batch rename your downloaded MOGRT templates to relevant names using a tool such a Better File Rename, rather than have to rename your files one by one by one inside the EGP!

    2. FOLDERS!!!!!!! The Motion Factory panel allows you to create, rename and remove folders to organize your files. The interface itself only allows you to do this on the root level, so you can't create sub-folders, HOWEVER, Motion Factory allows you to import your entire MOGRT library at once, with subfolders upon subfolders, respecting whatever folder structure you have on your hard drive!!!

    Adobe sure could learn a thing or two from the folks over at Motion Factory! For now, this is the tool I'm going to use since the Essential Graphics panel is utter garbage in comparison.

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    I only started using the EGP now, so I'm surprised to see the request to bring back folders. This means there used to be folders but now they're gone? What?!!! That's my #1 gripe with the EGP, the lack of any way to organize templates in bins/folders. Why would Adobe ever remove this uber essential feature??

    Thanks again for the feedback. We have made sure to have created items in our database for all actionable items. We are hoping you will be pleased by some of the changes we have made in future releases. Please continue to engage with us.

    Note that in the future, while this list is awesome, it is much easier for us to change status on completed items if they are single entry.

    We may close this one eventually but will keep the other individually tracked items open with status

    Yes! Davinci Resolve has this. Premiere Pro should too! As long as users have the option to easily turn it on/off.

    I have the same FR but with an illustration so will post as a new separate idea. This would make a HUGE improvement in productivity!

    Hopefully Adobe listens.

    I also use bins with the Legacy Titler to organize them for future use within big, ongoing projects that sometimes require hundreds of titles. Please do NOT get rid of the legacy titler! Instead, FIX IT! The Kerning bug, for example, is very annoying. If you type new characters in any title, the Kerning value that's applied to the new characters is 0 rather than respecting the title's current Kerning value.

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    Hi James,

    To answer your questions:
    1. On most projects, I normally only use 1 Bin to collect all of my titles. On complex projects with several individual videos, each on their own timeline, I might use one nested Bin per individual video (that said, it is extremely annoying that PP isn't smart enough to automatically collect all titles in a 'Titles' bin. I've done more than one FR for this in the past. Automatic Bin organization would be a very welcome feature (i.e. any newly created Sequences automatically appear in whichever Bin is set to gather 'Sequences', any Nested sequences go in a 'Nests' Bin, Titles go in 'Titles' Bin, etc). Search Bins are not an adequate substitute.)

    2. Yes, I would be willing to show my workflow, but not to help Adobe understand how they can kill the legacy titler, but rather to point out just how much of an essential tool the legacy titler is for us editors, given how inept, limited and flat out bad the new Essential Graphics panel is.

    It's very simple. Adobe removes the legacy titler. I stop using Premiere Pro. As surely will others.
    Don't remove the legacy titler! Adobe's messed up enough things in the past. Please spend resources on squashing bugs rather than figuring out new ways to mess up our workflow! Thank you.

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    I agree 100%. If Adobe ever pulls an 'Apple' move on us (removing the Legacy Titler, just like Apple removed the headphone jack), that'll be the last day I use PP!

    I HATE the new Essential Graphics titler, and
    I LOVE the legacy titler for so many reasons, many of which are listed here.

    I imagine only new editors and/or those with very limited titling requirements like the new Essential Graphics titler. It seems to have less than 50% of the functionality of the original titler it wants to replace. What sense does that make???

    I agree with all of the comments here. Instead of killing the Legacy Titler, how about you fix it!

    2 more things that need to be fixed with the Legacy Titler:

    1. Make the selection box YELLOW, or BLUE, or another other color than white!!!! White selection boxes on white backgrounds are invisible and thus very difficult to use! (and white backgrounds are a heck of a lot more common than yellow or light blue) This fix literally requires that ONE color setting in the source code be changed, so please change it already!
    2. Make titles constantly rasterize so users can zoom into them above 100% and have them still appear as sharp. AE easily does this, so why no PP?

    Yup, this is as clear evidence as any that the voting system does not work! If Adobe were to only focus on votes, they'd be busy porting all of Premiere Pro's bugs and broken tools over to Linux instead of fixing them for it's current users first. There's no other way to say it: Track matting in After Effects is great but in Premiere it sucks. When will Adobe finally show us users some respect by fixing long overdue problems like this one?

    Yes, yes, yes!!! The last frame should ABSOLUTELY be in better view of the ECW so that keyframes on the last frame are easier to grab, as HKNYFilms suggests!!!

    THIS is the sort of stuff Adobe should fix ASAP since it's the sort of thing that affects an intermediate to advanced editor's workflow on a daily basis!

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    Hi Fran Roig,

    That info does NOT help because...

    While it does solve the problem, many users, myself included, want 'Selection Follows Playhead' enabled, since it makes it so much easier to colour correct clips in the timeline, among other reasons.

    So are we expected then to turn off 'Selection Follows Playhead' every... single... time... we want to use the Effects Control Window (ECW) and have it behave properly?!!!

    Adobe forcing use to constantly turn 'Selection Follows Playhead' on/off is NOT a reasonable work around by any measure! The only reasonable thing for Adobe to do is fix this PITA mistakes once and for all. Period.

    Sorry for my brutal honesty, but the very fact that such a lame work around as yours is made in the first place only goes to further our impression that Adobe programmers clueless since they do not even use their own software on a daily basis. If they did, issues like this one would have been fixed ages ago!

    Now please pass this message on to the head of the PP team. THAT would be helpful!

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    Already doing what you suggest Matt, yet it's still annoying as ****. Adobe should just fix this easy to fix thing and be done with it once and for all! And I disagree with your point that "the app is doing what it's supposed to do." What PP is "supposed to do" is work in a logical way that us paying editors need it to, not in poorly though out ways that Adobe programmers who never even use their own program imagine it should work.

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    Fully agree! To add to this idea, the up and down arrow keys should also allow users to jump between the first and last frames in the EC window. Those keys work to jump to the first/last frame of a clip in the Timeline, so why not in the EC window? Using CTRL-Left/Right Arrow works for this, but the up/down arrows should as well, for convenience and simplicity's sake.

    Furthermore, when jumping to the last frame of the clip (using CTRL-Right arrow), the Program Monitor should show the LAST FRAME of the clip that's CURRENTLY LOADED in the EC window, NOT jump to the next clip (or show a black frame if there is no other clip next to it). This is excruciatingly annoying and extremely bad program design.

    Come on guys, PLEASE fix this once and for all! When jumping to clip's last frame in the EC window, there are precisely ZERO instances when an editor would ever want the next clip shown instead!

    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,…

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    Hi Patrick Palmer, THANK YOU for bringing a voice of reason to this FR that has suddenly exploded with votes!

    I can think of 100+ bug and major workflow issues that need to be fixed before Adobe should even think about spending the massive amount of resources it would take to port Premiere to another OS. If Adobe did go ahead and port Premiere to Linux before (and presumably, at the expense of) fixing dozens of current bugs and workflow issues, I imagine it would **** off a lot more users than it would please, myself included. At least, by your voice of reason, it appears Adobe isn't going to fall for hundreds of votes from users who don't seem to understand that limited resources means that a port to Linux, while it would be a win for them, would be a loss for the vast user base.

    I absolutely agree!!! I was just about to post my own FR for this but saw you beat me to the chase! ;)

    It's little issues like this that should be fixed first before new features are added IMHO!

    I would just add that the Source Monitor also needs an option to display BOTH the video and audio of a clip simultaneously. This would be so much more practical for editing interviews!

    Come on Adobe, please show us you care be making our basic 'bread and butter' workflow better and more efficient!

    YES! YES!!!! YES!!!!! I was just about to post my own FR for this but saw it's already here. When cutting up interviews in the Source Monitor, it would be SO helpful to see the audio waveform below the picture, with a user selectable zoom level (either one that corresponds to the current zoom slider in the Source Monitor, or a new zoom slider just below the waveform).

    PLEASE add this Adobe!!! You already have many different viewing options in the Source Monitor, but a Video + Audio preview would be the most useful by far IMO!
