  • Latest update,23.4, is a buggy mess.

    I’m finding 23.4 to be one of the buggiest updates so far and I’ve been with Ppro since 5.5 . Along with crashes during all sorts of timeline movements and during exporting, I’ve just discovered that “clip properties”, which uses the “shift-G” shortcut, has greyed out the ability of adjusting the timecode. Which is doubly painful considering an ongoing never fixed bug within Premiere where, if your source clip is “drop-frame”, and if you send it to Audition for repair work, the replacement clip in the timeline is automatically changed to “Non-drop frame” and the timecode number is altered. The fix used to be to go into clip properties and manually re-set the timecode to “Drop frame”, which would then restore the timecode numbers properly. This is a major PITA when working in multicam and trying to maintain sync, but it’s been a work around I could live with since no one at Adobe seems interested in addressing this bug no matter how many times I post requests to fix it. However with the latest release this option has been “greyed out” and I’m stuck with a timeline that is indecipherable.

    Way to go guys, keep up the crappy work.

    Hey Herb,

    I’ve done two smaller projects in 23.4, and so far OK-ish running on a PC i9-Intel, with 64GB Ram and SSD.

    I hear your frustrations.

    Although, despite promises to the opposite, it does feel that Adobe is not that serious about Premiere Pro, and would rather migrate us all to Express and Rush. And instead spend $ 22 Billion on buying companies that is for growth of plc, rather than spending cash on making the products work, and work together across the Creative Cloud business.

    I’m still waiting for Adobe SoMe Product Management to get back to me on a question(s) that I asked of them on the 14th of December.
    That was 2022, in case anyone get confused…

    Never-the-less, when a company stops caring, customers normally migrate.

    Just saying that it would be nice if they showed a little bit more love for their long-time users.

    If it were my decision, I would have migrated to Resolve by now. Unfortunately my client is Adobe based and I’m stuck with an erratic platform that is all about adding new wiz bang features without optimizing or just fixing the current features. When they start going backwards and removing essential features it does get to be a bit much. That they are non-communicative on top of that just has me grinding my teeth.
