Text panel can cause playhead to snap around inadvertently

In the text transcript panel, if you have a word in the search field, and 'follow active monitor' checked, from time to time while editing your playehead will snap to wherever in your sequence that word you have in the search field appears. Feels like if your active panel is a sequence the search panel shouldn't be moving your cursor around.

Sure thing @Kevin-Monahan

  • PPro Version: 24.5.0 (though this behavior has been in previous versions as well)
  • OS: Mac OS Ventura 13.6.6
  • System: Mac Studio M2 Ultra
  • RAM 64 GB
  • Hard drive: USB 3 SSD
  • Video Format: AVCI

I'm working in a sequence cutting multicam interview clips. These multicam sequences have static transcripts generated from within the multicam sequence. To reproduce the issue:

  1.  Create new sequence.
  2. Bring your entire multicam interview clip into this sequence to begin pulling selects.
  3. Open the text panel and enable 'follow active monitor'. Search for some word that appears a few times in your interview, and leave that search term in the search box.
  4. Now, in your sequence panel, go through and just kind of edit as normal. Add edit points, trim, whatever. Sporadically, your playhead will jump to a timecode of your squence where that search term that you left in the search box appears.

 

 

I hope that is clear! Honestly, it's not the worst thing ever once you're aware of the behavior, but before I figured out what was going on, it was driving me bananas.

See this previous bug report:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-bugs/text-searches-persist-across-sequences-and-clips-ca...

 

As discussed some parts of this dilemma is more an "as designed" than bug, but, as you say, until you understand what is happening it is maddening.

 

However, this post by @Kerstin Ebert suggested that some of the behavior may be a bug:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-bugs/text-searches-persist-across-sequences-and-clips-ca...

 

I have not tested for some time, so do not know if it is still the same or not. I did not think that the "follow active" had any relevance. All that does is determine which transcript view you have based on which monitor view you are in.

Hey @Stan Jones, thanks for pointing me to that. I totally missed that thread and it's the exact issue I'm encountering. I would assume (but haven't tested) that if 'follow active' is unchecked and it's set to the source monitor, the bug (that I believe Kerstin accurately identifies) wouldn't occur as Premiere wouldn't be trying to inadvertently find words within the sequence you're working in.

 

Anyhow, thanks again!

Brian,

 

Thanks for the additional explanation. I'll try to get around to testing.

 

Perhaps @Kerstin Ebert will check in and update that thread.

Hi, 

I don't have an update on this bug yet so for now the only workaround is to clear the search field in the Text panel. I'll keep you posted once we have a fix!

 

Best,

Kerstin

Kerstin Ebert,

 

Thanks for the response on this.

 

However, I note that while you have acknowledged this as a bug, which presumably means a wider awareness in Adobe of this issue, it is not communicated to users in the Known Issues docuemention.

 

Is there a reason for that?

 

R.
