    Anyone brave enough to install the new version of Premiere Pro and try it out? Just noticed Premiere Pro 2017 pop up on the Creative Cloud Tab.

    Works just fine for me.
    But finish in 2015.4 and start fresh in 2017.

    [Dave LaRonde] “My rule of thumb is that you never get brand-new Adobe software: their track record on getting it right the first time is abysmal.”

    That’s my rule of thumb for all software (and hardware too if I can wait for a new revision to come out I will). Ex. I don’t remember which version of OS X it was, but one of the recent versions could brick your computer if you had a 3rd party SSD installed.

    I wait for early adopters to run into bugs then I decided if I’m okay with the bugs (severity and frequency) or if I’m going to wait for a patch.

    I installed it and so far works good, except the icon for the project files, its not the genereic one, but it shows the default premiere pro icon, I tried reinstalling and the same thing occurs, I think its a bug.

    2 main issues so far:

    Alt left or right from the keyboard no longer kerns text in the title window.

    Adobe Media Encoder cannot see some formats of video as sources- have to export directly from Premiere for now.

    There is also the usual issue that plugins have to be copied over to the “new” Premiere or re-installed.

    Downloaded it just to play with it while waiting to see the flood of issues. Can’t open previous version projects, well…you can, but the media is all offline, and has to be re-connected.

    Okay, I tested it now for some time.

    The main difference is the look of the program. Had some trouble at the beginning with setting In- and Outpoints in the Source Monitor, but reinstalling Visual Studio seemed to fix it.

    Good news, when Premiere crashes the Picture freezes and I have some seconds to save the project without problems.
    Bad news, it crashes as much as 2015.3 did.

    When exporting text to AE, it’s still a black solid. (should have been a new feature, though) The subtitle function is useless as ever. So I don’t know, why they praise it as functional.

    Couldn’t try the new team function.

    That’s it for now. Can’t see a reason to update right know. But hadn’t any problems with converting the project file to the new one. All media were still linked, so I guess I was just lucky?

    And I wonder myself whyt real benefit I have sincer CS6.
    Ugly blue GUI, countless of bugs, problems, lag, odd new functions, less and less intuitive interface, numerous plugins do not works anymoore (so I must repurchase them!) AND same or similar performance.

    I wonder too, if Adobe can make even more dumb interface than this in 2017?
    Rounded buttons – the peak od Adobe development. Man, they’re collecting 200.000.000 dollars per MONTH!! And serves us rounded buttons??? Oh Lord!

    Why on earth they use only 3 colrs in GUI?? Dark grey, light gray and blue. Whyt on heavens sake is wrong with colors which can give shading and more visual cue to what is selected or not. This is beyond me. I hope Justice will com soon.
