Precise image rotation in Premiere Pro is a pain (align horizon)

I don't get it why it is still not possible to rotate content with a very fine sensitivity and let Premiere auto crop the black edges afterwards. It works pretty well in Lightroom, why not in Premiere?

 

99% of the time the rotation tool is used to align the horizon, which is usually off only by a few degrees. 

If you click in the degree value and drag the mouse even a tiny bit, the image is rotating with unusable huge values. 

Afterwards you have to crop in manually, which is also a pain.

 

ADOBE PLEASE FIX THE ROTATION TOOL FOR ALIGNING HORIZONS:

 

1. Please scale down the sensitivity of the drag function in the rotation tool, so that precise alignments can be made!

2. please show temporary grid lines during the drag process like in Lightroom!

3. please implement an auto crop function to remove the black spaces like in Lightroom!

 

Thank you!

2. There are guides you can use to staighten out footage

3. Rotate and scale in one go. If you do this often you know how much you need to adjust the horizon and the number of upscaling. (1 degree - 103 upscale, 2 degrees 106 etc )

"99% of the  time rotation is used to align the horizon ... "

 

Well, that would be your situation. I very, very rarely need to align the horizon to horizontal.

 

So rotation for me is used for mostly graphics work ...
