Hi, how the heck do you change the background color of the iterface? It is way way too dark. It's ridiculous! In other Adobe programs you can, why not Premier?
In the Preferences, of course. Appearance tab ...
I know. I changed that but it didn't make a difference at all.
Huh. On my rig it changes the background from near black to a medium gray. Well, accross several rigs I've been running.
It's not changing at all?
Should look like this:
I finally got it to change but how do I get the highlight color. I tried clicking and double clicking but nothing happened. The menus are so dark and tiny, it's hard to read.
To change the highlights, you have to move the sliders; clicking on the Sample icon won't work because it's a graphic, not a button.
I made the same mistake when I first tried to change the highlights. 😀
Could you put a screenshot up? I'm not quite understanding.
I did that.
and this is the result
I dont see much of a difference, is there?
Changes are quite suttle, but looks fine to me.
But your system shows gpu issues.
Looks to me like you have a small screen/low resolution, that also could influence the interface.
I copied this from a FB group written by Karl Lee Soule (Sr Technical Sales Manager Adobe).
Something to note on the new System Compatibility Report
This new feature will tell you if your system has a known problem with your system. There is the option to click “continue anyway” but do so at your own risk, particularly when the issue is a driver issue. ￼
In support and engineering, we’ve determined that a very high rate of crashes are driver-dependent. Premiere Pro uses the full capability of the hardware, and a bug in the driver may not be noticeable for other tasks, but could be causing a crash in Premiere.
If the System Compatibility Report is suddenly telling you you need to update a driver, it means we’ve identified a potential crash that can be caused by a bug in the driver you’re using. You may not be experiencing this crash now, but the problem exists. It’s like a “check engine” light on your dash - you can keep driving, but something is wrong.
Adobe is being much more proactive in identifying bad drivers and noting them in the System Compatibility Report, so a system that passed yesterday may flag a driver today if something new was identified. We want you to have the best experience with Premiere and this is gonna help.
yes, I tried that but for some reason it won't update
Okay... I might be killed for suggesting this, lol. But please proceed on your own risk, and make sure not to play around with anything else.
