    Some versions seem to work better than others and I have projects that overlap in time the release of new versions. How do y’all handle this?

    I tend to resist new versions until there is a compelling reason to update to the new release, but always choose the option not to uninstall the previous version.

    There is just never a time (excepting the lack of work in mid 2020 due to Covid) when all my projects are complete – always something’s in the loop.

    Thanks, Bill. What do you perceive as a compelling reason? Do you then update to whatever is the latest release?

    I recently bought a new Mac with an M1 chip as a 3rd system, and with the initial install of Creative Cloud, I believe that Premiere 2022 was the only option.

    Since I also edit on a PC laptop when away from home, which was running Premiere 2019, and I needed to work on a project I began in Premiere 2022 on this laptop..since projects can’t be opened in an older version retroactively, I had no choice but to install 2022 on the laptop.

    Another reason would be the transcription features available on 2022 that isn’t on older versions – for some of my projects it will be very useful.

    Sadly there is an ongoing issue with AE and AME.

    I think some Premiere users are affected.

    For me, I’m sticking to 2020 across the Adobe apps due to that issue alone.

    I witnessed it in 2021 so I opted to stay put.

    I also just updated the newer version, and didn’t like it that much while using. But I always take a backup with me, secondary laptop, which usually has the previous version, and the primary has the latest.

    Or I just use a virtual machine.

    Anyways, Newer versions are mostly better, because the have more improvements.
