    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,…

    Just as important would be for Adobe to also encourage all its partners (plugin makers, helper software companies like SmartSound for custom-length music, etc.) to go to Linux as well; we need those pieces of software too!

    And for goodness' sake, Adobe, bring back Encore and enable it to author 4K blu-rays. Optical disc is not dead yet!

    Microsoft's recent SERIOUS screwups of Windows are probably the MOST compelling reason to port to Linux. There needs to be another real choice on standard, non-locked-down, affordable PC hardware (looking at you, Apple).

    I'm not a developer, but yes, I hear you loud and clear, you can't develop for every flavor of Linux out there (and still growing). So I would say just develop for the easiest to use, most widely supported distro, official Ubuntu. Possibly Red Hat too, since there is bona fide commercial support by pretty solid companies in those two distributions.

    Adobe already makes mobile versions of Creative Cloud software for Android, so how hard can it be to port to an OS that essentially uses the same kernel?

    Exactly! This would be the one thing that could bring desktop Linux into the mainstream - which in my estimation is VITAL. It is actually DANGEROUS for both Microsoft and Apple to have their duopoly in the desktop operating system market. On one hand, you have a near ubiquitous OS in Windows, which lately has been deleting files - DELETING FILES, let that sink in - and having _severe_ problems of other kinds...and then another that would force you to buy entirely new hardware just to run it (Apple macOS) if you already owned a PC that you shelled hundreds or thousands of dollars on. And with that one, you're locked in to very unnecessarily expensive hardware that you can't even upgrade or fix on your own! Latest and greatest from that company is the T2 chip, which locks down your OS and software if you don't have AppleCare repair your system (i.e., if you dare take your machine to a third party Mac repair shop). There MUST be a third alternative, and the most developed and polished and easy-to-use of all possible alternatives out there is Ubuntu Linux, if only mainstream software would run on it without fuss.

    I realize there are so many flavors and variations of desktop Linux out there that would make any developer's head swim and scare away major corporations like Adobe, but at least if they could support mainstream unaltered Ubuntu and Red Hat, both of which are supported by solid companies (the latter of which just got bought by the mighty IBM, but for simplicity I would prefer Ubuntu), that would be good.

    Adobe better wake up to the up-and-coming competition, namely Blackmagic Design, whose Hollywood-standard (at least for color correction) DaVinci Resolve runs on Linux (as well as Windows and Mac) and costs a **** of a lot less without enslaving subscriptions. It started out as a color corrector, but now has evolved into a really good editor (with features Premiere still doesn't have), color corrector, effects, and audio suite. They could very well be the new video post-production standard in the next few years. Adobe might look like a dinosaur if they don't keep up and also offer a Linux version. (DaVinci Resolve currently only officially runs on Red Hat/Cent OS flavor of Linux, but a simple command line download of a script gets it running on Ubuntu flawlessly.)

    I'm sure there are plenty of free (and paid) FLAC converters out there that could make an uncompressed format like WAV or AIFF for you to import.

    I would agree only except that we're paying every year for a subscription, so without yearly updates it gives us no benefit to constantly paying every year with no choice. If Adobe goes back to major updates every 3 years or so, it should offer a standalone option or do away with subscriptions altogether.

    Thanks for all the feedback. It’s pretty clear that we’ve got to look into the workflow using this format more closely, there are enough reports about gaps at this point to reopen this item. I’ll post more info about next steps shortly. In the meantime, a couple of questions are easy to answer:

    - The plugin is designed for Premiere Pro. It currently doesn’t provide support for After Effects.
    - It does work with AME, so if you want to use it for batch processing, that’s very doable
    - If you’ve started a project with Autokroma, there’s no easy way to transfer it to be running with the new plugin.

    Patrick
