While we are not considering removing this long-requested feature, we hear you on the room for improvement.
Thank you for your feedback
Thanks for all the feedback so far.
It is one of many areas we are looking into.

MKV support is actively being worked on. I don't have a release date to share currently but when that changes, I will update this message.
This is a great request that is certainly something we want to implement. Rest assured our engineers DO understand the importance of this feature and how to get the job done. We also know that the performance and stability of the app should be our #1 priority and that is where our focus is right now.

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.

while this is a rather critical and large change to the way the application works and will take some time to be implemented, we’ll definitely put this under consideration.
There’s more than one solution to this problem, though.
A good short term opportunity is to use the parallel install feature in the creative cloud application. It should help to at least take away some of the issues working with people on a different version of the application.
Another thing worth keeping in mind is that you can install CC on two different machines (if you’re on an individual subscription). That gives you additional opportunity to keep different versions around for compatibility reasons.
I’ll update the status of this request as we move along.
If you have further thoughts on this matter, please keep them coming.

The I-frame first idea is implemented in multiple codecs, including anything that is LongGOP in an MXF wrapper, XDCAM in a MOV wrapper, and it's being added for the work that will be released soon that will hardware accelerate AVC Intra on Apple silicon in MXF.
Thanks everyone for your feedback. I am moving this to Under Review.
Currently, Premiere uses the Lanczos method for intrinsic scale and rotation. Lanczos is an exceptionally high-quality interpolation method which generally yields better results than bicubic, bilinear or nearest neighbor. From reading the forum post, it seems that up-scaling is the real issue here. I suggest looking at the Detail-Preserving Upscale effect in After Effects. It does a really good job and gives you some parameters to tweak to fit your specific content.
As Wes noted, we are looking at many areas for optimization and have made strides in the last few releases already.
We recognize there are still many areas to improve performance and we are investing in appropriate areas.
Threads that are catch-alls are often non-actionable. Please keep giving us specific feedback on what workflows are slow for you.
Technical solutions may not always be as obvious as some people may be suggesting as the application architecture is often very different than people’s conception.
Short answer. Yes, we want to and will make it faster.
