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.

Being able to set the default interpolation for keyframes in Adobe Premiere would be helpful. Currently I have to select each clip, select the keyframes, and set the spatial interpolation to linear.

I agree; the possibilty to change the key frame spatial interpolation default to whatever you like in Premiere would be a huge time saver!

 

I would use After Effects all the time if I could, but AE is a very blunt tool when it boils down to good old fashion linear editing.

 

If youre editing a full length feature film there may be thousands of clips, not to mention taking over a project from someone less experienced who messed up and can't finnish the job; you're in for some sleepless nights just fixing keyframes.

 

I'll promise you this: the day Adobe anounces the new feature of changing the key frame spatial (and temporal) interpolation default in Premiere to whatever you like I will crack open that bottle of Champagne I have been saving 😄

 

Sincerely yours,
Stargazer

Just adding my voice to the chorus. Please, let us set the keyframes to linear by default. It will save me so much time and nerves.

If it comes to actually addressing or clarifying anything posted here, Adobe sure likes being 'abysmally inundated by the sheer amount of creativity all of its users have', when it suits the exorbitantly priced software suite company. Not like it promises support when talking about the price of its products.

I just wasted 14hrs encoding a text with beziar interpolation that I copied thry out the entire 3 hr project. After seeing the error it took me 2 more hrs to figure it was the stupid benzier keyfremes.  O m g ! After 6 hr if fixing the problem  I came here only 2 c EVERYBODY'S got this problem WTF ! 

To fix this problem this program routine must be very deeply rooted into the software or I feel they would have fixed it by now.  FIX THE FUYKIN THING ! FOR CHRISTMAS,  FIX THE FYCKIN THING.

Oh and one more thing,  I aint a newbe!  Ive been using AE and PP sinc the late 1990's. I aint no rookie.  Something's are overlooked/forgotten when projects like I do are edited for over a month before I get to encoded them and watch for the very 1st time.

Then that really sucks when u have to wait 14+ hours to encode each of the 30 to 40 minute parts.  Only 2 find out Adobe forces benzier keys on u and when motion text comes to stop and what appears 2 b a perfect location with a static text. AND IT DOES NOT JUMP TO ANOTHER LOCATION ON THE TIMELINE.  BUT after u spend all that time encoding,  THEN U C THE MIS-ALIGNMENT.  AND GET FURIOUS.  why cant u c that misaligned text on the timeline if its there!?  Why?  Pee me off!

Agreed.  Such a frustrating default option requiring way too many mouse clicks to switch to what should be the default.  Adobe please listen to the many comments in agreement.  Been dealing with this for over a decade and I just cant stand wasting so much time manually doing this every time.

I think I c how they tried to work around this problem of the text coming off a continuous/auto bezier.  I wondered why when u use the up arrow 2 jump to the end of a clip it jumps 1 frame past the viewable end of said clip and that is where the bezier stops too.  I think this is Adobes way of preventing actually seeing the movement(jump into realignment) of the text as it comes off the last bezier keyframe and starts viewing the text in the next video clip which is in the exact same location but is a (regular) linear text.

I'd sometimes try to correct that little jump as it comes off a bezier keypoint by placing yet another keypoint at the last viewable frame of the video knowing that the end of the video clip is 1 frame past the actual viewable frame.  I don't know if I'm explaining it clearly but… 

  O and another extra thing u must do with the latest version of PP is that when u open PP the preview window is at 100% now and not how u left if during the last session. Sure the last software update centered the view but it kept it at the same "zoom-in" level so u just had to move the zoomed in center back to where u were working.  Now u have 2 do one more step. Its not a big big deal it’s just one more thing u must do. All those little extra things add up.

If u force us to use bezier keypints the Adobe U better use better precision rounding.  Like  rounding to .000001 ! I programmed CNC machinery way back when and if I didn't round to the nearest .000001 the errors would accumulate and without warning the CNC machinery would "jump" to correct itself.  Yeah, I understand the problem but why don't u do anything about it.  It comes down to two options.  STOP THE Bezier default or use better precision when finding text locations.  It's that simple. I think everyone would be willing to give up one micro second per event when encoding text then to have to spend hours finding every single text that u  forced us to use the freakin Bezier key points. What the hell is the matter with u lazy/unwilling  people over. there!?  JFC  get with it.
