I believe Paul is saying that if you want something you should tell Adbobe about it because the more noise they hear on any given topic the more likely they are to act. I don’t know how much this or any other public forum influences their thinking. It’s not readily apparent that a lot of weight is placed on the suggestions/complaints/comments posted here.
Here is a list of this that should never have beaten Media Management – bins independant of projects, sequences independant of projects, ability to swap out media with different resolutions and with different properties (like with audio or without)effects clearing to multiple clips, append, add and overwrite effects when pasting, speed and duration change to multiple clips.
Imbeded title files
Half baked transparent video
GPU effects – how sh1t are they?
Timeline page scrolling
I have no confidence in this method. Users and testers have been presenting this bin structure problem since September of 2003, when PPro 1.0 first came out. This method has not worked through two revisions. The problem, though frequently reported, has not been taken seriously.
I am finished sending the same feature request over and over. In any relationship there comes a time when you just have to accept the fact that the other party is not listening, and move on!
Bin structure was fine in Premier. There was no reason that it should have taken 100 leaps back in time when the program went “Pro” The very first building block of the new program should have been a flexible bin structure that allows for easy sorting and retrieval of media. This program should not have made it out the 1.0 door without this. The fact that we are now two releases down the road without this being fixed leaves me stunned. I just can’t believe it. I really can’t believe it!
I for one have my 2.0 upgrade still sitting in the box. One of these days we will give it a go.
Coming from Media 100 where you can have multiple bins and timelines open in separate windows, and drag clips from one to the other to your heart’s content, moving to Premiere has required a different workflow. And why can’t you click in the bin, and hit a letter or number on the keyboard and be taken to the first clip beginning with that letter or number? Too much mouse work to find a clip.
