The option to have keyframes use linear spatial interpolation by default, instead of auto beizer!

After Effects has this option, and for good reason! Auto bezier leads to all sorts of unintentional movement. This is especially newb-unfriendly.

Amen! I was promised a "JDI update" ("Just Do It" in Adobe developer lingo) to get this feature added to Premiere at NAB 2018. A year later, it's still one of the issues that drives me the farthest up the wall. A checkmark to set the default spatial interpolation to linear in the preferences like After Effects would solve soooo many headaches and save all the time I currently spend highlighting the position keyframes in every edit and switching them to linear.

Just adding some links to other forum threads / pages discussing the same issue:

After Effects has the option to change the default to "linear," but this article doesn't even mention that. Looking through the comments, though, you can see how many people are affected by the issue of having Auto Bezier be the default:

Premiere keyframes jump from Linear to Auto Bezier. I don't know when and why exactly, but when editing keyframes, moving them around or creating new keyframes in between other ones, one or more Position Keyframes, via spacial interpolation, is changed from linear to Auto Bezier. I have spent many hours trying to get rid of the unwanted movements before I understood what was going on! This is a big flaw, borderline bug. It should be fixed a long time ago.

Just chiming in to say: yes please! Having to change to Linear each time I want to use keyframes on position is a major pain.

Jumping in 4 years and multiple requests after the original post to say that I would also like to see this change.

This post shows a good way to implement it in the preferences menu.

Please give us access to change the default options so we don't have to keep changing each keyframe's interpolation.

Sorry for being four years late but you can just mass-select all the keyframes in a clip with the help of your mouse and then right-click and apply linear spatial interpolation to them all.

Thanks Denys for the info, but some of us have hundreds of clips in each project and having to do that every time is a lot of time. I'm not sure why this issue has not been addressed with a simple checkbox or dropdown menu.
