    SOLVED!!!!

    Even though this should have been programed into Pr years ago, there IS a solution, it's available NOW and it's FREE!

    It's called Compass.

    You can get this super simple and easy to use plugin here (Mac and PC)
    https://knightsoftheeditingtable.com/compass

    You're welcome!

    Hi Trevor, I think what you're asking for perhaps falls outside the realm of what we can reasonably expect from Adobe since it would introduce complexity unneeded by most users.

    Do you know about the plug-in Excalibur? It has export options that might suit your needs. It can't export a range based on the Work Area bar for now, but it can use in/out points to determine this range. You could simply create a preset for each export type you need, each with its own export location, custom file name format, and/or keyboard shortcut!

    Thanks Antoine! I do Beta testing for software and plug-ins. Are you a plug-in developer? If so, I'd be happy to help you beta test any plug-ins you develop that help Pr users.

    Here is what I believe would be the best solution to Pr's exporting problem: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/42617104-relative-export-paths-please

    Please take a look and add your votes there!
    There are 6 or so FRs already asking for the same exporting issue to be fixed, so I'm hoping to consolidate all of the votes under a single thread.

    I've attached an illustration as a preview of my solution. Lets all vote to get this issue fixed once and for all! Thanks!

    Hi Erik and Eric, if you want to see this implemented, make sure to comment here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-beta/discuss-new-way-to-control-how-label-colors-and-clip-names-are-displayed-in-the-timeline/m-p/11940375/thread-id/2844?fbclid=IwAR1UlHFRnUgu6CHT-_gHXaVD02ShRZyvOkeO3H-nWdqIawzmSe6GIqAO0a8.

    Adobe updated this feature in Pr 15.2 (beta) but didn't actually fix the underlying problem I point out in my FR.

    You can do this now very easily using keyboard shortcuts, but for this you need to get the Excalibur plugin: https://knightsoftheeditingtable.com/

    @Antoine it's painfully slow in the Project window in both icon and list view. Worst of all, previews aren't generated until clips are brought into view. So even twirling a bin open will only generate previews for the files currently visible in the Project window. 4K long gop video files further down out of view will grind things to a halt when the user scrolls down, bringing them into view, a Pr generates new thumbnails for them. These should be rendered in the background once and then saved for whenever the project is reopened.

    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    For now, the best solution is to assign a keyboard shortcut to make it easy to turn thumbnails off so they don't slow you down. You can assign the same shortcut to turn thumbnails on/off in both the Timeline and the Project window, depending on which one is the active window! (see illustration)

    I agree with Alex. Workarounds are not a solution. Fixing this should be at the very top of Adobe's To Do list.

    Alex Elkins is correct. Turning off thumbnails as David suggests isn't any more of a solution to the problem than saying 'use FCPX instead' would be. This problem needs to be fixed, not just avoided.

    Adobe, this is the number 1 most frustrating issue while editing in Premiere! Please fix this before working on any new features. Waiting for thumbnails to generate is a life-sucking, creativity-killing affair! Thumbnails should be auto-generated in the background and then saved so they don't need to be regenerated every time a project is opened!

    @Leonardo, I ask myself the same question sometimes. I do know of at least 1 real editor that beta tests Pr... myself. ;) But I'm just 1 person, just like every other person who voted here. That's why it's so important to collectively participate with our comments and votes in an effort to be heard.

    I created a Facebook group to help us get heard: https://www.facebook.com/groups/premiereprofeaturerequests.

    There are workarounds as I posted in my previous comment, but ideally this issue should be fixed once and for all.

    WORKAROUND TIPS!

    Until Adobe fixes this, there are a couple of easy workarounds:

    1. Add the Transform and Crop effects to your clip (in that order, otherwise it won't work). Crop your clip to the dimensions of the PIP/window you want. Now adjust your clip's Scale, Position and Rotation using the Transform effect. Bingo, it works! You can now change the motion properties of your clip without changing the size/position/rotation of the 'window' itself! To apply both effects at the same time in the future, select them both in the ECP with your preferred settings (or before changing any settings at all), right click on the name of one of them and select 'Save Preset...' (see illustration).

    2. Even easier, just add the Transform effect to your clip. Now mask your clip using the Opacity effect's masking tools in the ECP. You can create a rectangle, circle or any other shape you want. Now change the motion properties of your clip using the Transform effect. It works as well!

    Hope this info helps!

    Does anyone know of a third-party plugin that provides proper track matting in Premiere Pro (i.e. the way AE does it, without resorting to AE or nesting)? Years later, Adobe still doesn't seem to care about fixing essential things like this that would make a world of difference to editors. :(

    @Mike, what you suggest is an interesting idea, but it would have to be an on/off option. Not everyone would want it to work that way, myself and Alex Elkins included.

    Btw, what's overly complicated about letting users set shortcuts for the pasting function(s) they want? ;)

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Pierre Louis Beranek commented  · 

    SOLVED!!!!!! There's no more need to wait for Adobe to fix this anymore! There's a new plug-in that just came out that allows us to simultaneously set shortcuts to 3 different pasting behaviors:
    1. Paste to lowest enabled track
    2. Paste to highest enabled track
    3. Paste to same track

    This new plug-in doesn't just provide a solution to Pr's horrible pasting, but it also provides solutions to well over a dozen other common FRs. You can find out more about it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1638270639681590/permalink/1766467540195232

    You're welcome! ;)

    Hi James,

    You wrote "but the current means of choosing which track to paste to is cumbersome". I agree. The option to paste to the highest enabled track would solve this problem once and for all.

    Imagine a sequence with 5 video tracks that are always enabled. You only ever place media on V1-V4. This means that V5 would always be free to paste into without zero risk of overwriting something by mistake, and no need to ever adjust which tracks are enabled beforehand. Problem solved! (Note: If you copy or cut/paste media that occupied 2 or more tracks, new V tracks will automatically be created. To continue pasting to V5, simply don't enable any of the newly created tracks)

    Editing in a timeline with no tracks enabled is impractical given Pr's reliance on track enabling for basic shortcuts to work (cut, go to next/previous edit point, etc.)

    Hi Tom,

    The point of the Facebook group is to offer another venue where people who care about Pr can discuss ways to improve our favorite NLE. It isn't a replacement to Adobe User Voice, but rather an addition to it, with posts linking back to official FRs here. Plus there are some Adobe reps in the group. It's a new group, so it's still very small, so if you'd like to check it out and join, you're more than welcome!

    Hi TaranVH, how can I merge my FR into the one you suggest? I'm not sure how to do that. Thank you!

    BTW, I'd love to see you on the FB group I started for discussing ways we can help Adobe improve Pr. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1638270639681590/

    Hi Alex, by 'paste into new track' do you mean Pr should automatically create a new video track to paste into?

    Hi djbalti, I agree 100%! There's hope we might get this because Pr now has this function in version 15.1 (beta), but only in the Captions window.

    I found a great FR by Eric Blair that relates to scroll wheel functionality. When zooming in/out of the Timeline with Alt+scroll, the Timeline should zoom in centered on the playhead! The way it currently works isn't nearly as useful and is also inconsistent with how zooming centers on the playhead when using the + & - keys.
