Any and all feedback is welcomed - it keeps me motivated and makes new features appear in things that I'd otherwise have no time for.
I know silence is golden, but really guys?
I think sometimes it's just better to get used to the new way of doing things, myself.
Depends on the impetus for change.
Users dictate functionality. Improvements to features like multi-cam editing have been much sought by the community over the years, and Adobe's reponse has generally been excellent. Sometimes those changes have effected a change in workflow, but hey - it's for the better in the long run.
Posts relating to the removal of jog/shuttle have, however, amassed thousands of views on forums across the web, with most discussion being wholly negative towards the change. Here, the new way isn't for the better.
Agreed - and the customer feedback done before CS6 showed quite categorically that professional users overwhelmingly used the JKL keys or a dedicated hardware device. Any editing suite worth its salt has dedicated keyboards which include a hardware jog/shuttle wheel (e.g. those from Bella Corp), and the standalone Contour Shuttle has been around since 2001.
Also, generic controllers (Space Pilot) can fire the JKL keys, no need for any plugins or scripts.
I stand humbly informed!
In hindsight, I'm not surprised that the JKL keys are a popular choice amongst editors (especially for those who've moved across from other NLEs), but it does rest somewhat uncomfortably in my heart. It feels like Adobe have replaced the pedals and gearstick in my car with a keyboard: not great for those moments when a child runs into the road.
The Shuttle Pro (and Bella to my knowledge?) controllers emulate left/right arrow keypresses to do their work, making the playback 'glitchy' during shuttle operations - I don't like that. I didn't particularly like the feel of the Shuttle Pro when I tried it either. I do like controllers like this (I have one), but have been working for some time on interfacing between the Sony 9-pin protocol and Premiere.
As such, my intermediate preference has been to use a graphics tablet (with a keyboard) for NLE work - hence why having the jog/shuttle controls on screen was so darn useful! Now that I have quickJog mapped to the stylus eraser, edits are much faster.
Quick aside: Huge commendations on just how much can be mapped to keyboard shortcuts in Premiere, huzzah!
Hi Many Thanks for this as the mouse wheel works a treat as a Jog Shuttle now!
I definitely needed a physical control for this as its more sensitive and intuitive than using keys.
The Jog shuttle Feature needs reinstating by Adobe .. but until then this is a good half way house fix!
I was loooking for months
does it work cc 2014 and 2015?
