    All,


    first of all I wanted to thank everyone for making this a productive conversation over the last couple of days.


    As several people responded to my comment about keeping the tone civilised, I need to dwell on that for a minute. Please hear me out, this is important to everyone on my crew and I hope it will be to you.


    Saying that we shouldn't be surprised when things get heated is very problematic in my opinion. How do you expect a junior person on my team to respond to a technical question when it is combined with something that can easily be described as hate speech? How do you think we can actually come together on actual issues when there's already the assumption that we're a big faceless corporation, not even listening to our customers?


    People on my team have received threats. I've been there over the years,…

    Oh no. I accidentally updated Media Encoder on one of my computers, and the plague of terrible UI has spread. Huge buttons, rounded corners on everything, weird alignment, and absolutely massive padding on every single UI element.

    Now we can see fewer items in the queue, fewer presets in the preset browser, and fewer files in the media browser.

    And (worst of all) our precious Export Settings window - promised to us as the savior from all this headache - has had the same overhaul. Why is there so much empty space?!

    God forbid anyone would actually want to see what they're doing!

    I opened Microsoft Excel this morning and was presented with a popup telling me that they were working on a complete overhaul of the Office UI. It gave me a quick preview of what the new UI looked like and explained what they thought was better about it.

    Then there were two buttons "Try It" and "Not Now". Clicking "Try It" enabled the new UI, and gave me some more information - including how eager they were to get feedback from their users, and how to revert to the old UI if I thought it wasn't better.

    At no point was I just dropped in unfamiliar territory and expected to just figure it out. I wasn't forced to learn 'the new way' while I was on a deadline. And Microsoft's explicit goal is to refresh the UI so there's more space for my work, not less.

    That's how you do it, Adobe.

    Honestly, my biggest problem with this whole debacle was the way this was rolled out. Large, workflow-breaking changes should never be pushed onto users without warning - especially in a minor version bump, and particularly when there's still so many small elements that are not ready for *********.

    This should have been a 'preview' feature, with a "Hey, would you like to try our new import/export workflow?" prompt, and a way for users to opt-out and give feedback until the new UI had been tested at scale. The switch from the legacy titler to Essential Graphics was a good example of how changes like this should be handled.

    My other gripe is that the premiere developers seem to be using a new UI kit that is slower, bulkier and less native than the prior UI. New features (like the otherwise brilliant new captioning tool) have unnecessarily large buttons and spacing, are slow to react compared to the rest of the UI, and have unnecessary and laggy animation. You see it again in the new export window, where keyboard navigation and shortcuts don't work as expected. Or the new header bar, which is a panel that doesn't work like any of the existing panels and can't be removed.

    In a program that should all be about speed and efficiency, it seems very backwards to be making UI decisions that directly slow down work and use up space. Premiere's UI should be getting out of the way, not making itself front and centre.

    I think this is all symptomatic of a larger shift inside Adobe. Since the introduction of Creative Cloud, it seems clear that the focus is on big headline features and winning over new users, rather than improving the product at its core. Nowhere has this been more evident than with Premiere. I understand that the "content creator" market is a huge part of Adobe's business (I do enough of that type of work myself), but the focus seems to be swung too far towards catering to that specific demographic of user. Auto-Reframe, Essential Sound, GIF export?

    Meanwhile, 'Pro' features and long-standing bugs are ignored. Merged clips are broken, AAF export is broken, batch-syncing to timecode requires a frustrating workaround via multicam sequences. I'd love it if the Premiere team would spend a release just focusing on all the little things that cause day-to-day frustrations for professionals, but I won't hold my breath, because that sort of thing doesn't attract new Creative Cloud subscribers.
