Not usually one to dislike layout updates but really not a fan of the new Import/Export windows.
1. When setting up a new project they seem to have gotten rid of setting the scratch disk or am I just missing something here?
2. In Exporting screen, there are many buttons you now need to click through that are hidden away.
All the present seem to have gone missing. Adding in my preset from previous versions of Premiere, it now shows all of them, rather than only the ones relevant to the 'Format' selected making it very messy. Am I doing something wrong here?
There's been a lot of discussion of the new import and export pages ... and not a lot of love, shall we say? lol
The settings for cache locations and such are still in the Project settings, but not in the "new project" setup, because in their user usage data very few editors actually used the option in the old New Project dialog.
So they replaced the "unused" set of options with a set of options for a simplified project start/import process. Which kinda 'hid' the old process of simply typing a project name, setting a location, and clicking Create to get the new project up.
As long as nothing is selected in the new Import page center and right-side areas, after typing Name, setting Location, you can click Create ... the new project opens, and you fill it as before from either the Project panel's Import options or the Media Browser panel.
That one ain't so bad ... you still have the old functions available.
The Export page ... that takes some user time to make it usable. You really need to go through the ENTIRE list of export presets, unstar all the ones you'll never use. As a first step.
The second ... for everything you'll actually need, you should make new presets especially detailed, including all the options in the "more ... " scroll down area. And if you sometimes use an option there, sometimes not or a different option, MAKE ALL OF THEM AS SEPARATE presets. Named so you know what's what.
Then you can actually use it without too much irritation.
Or ... simply use the Send to MediaEncoder option and get the old dialog.
