these people are out of their minds. i had a feeling we would start facing things like this once they moved over to a cloud based situation. in the old days when u bought the software totally and they made an idiot update that removed something people needed, people responded by NOT BUYING the next version.
Now they sneak updates in that remove functionality and a person like me with a 7000 machine from a few years back that works better than a new off the rack one i have except that NONE of my hundreds of HD files can be imported with audio is out of luck.
I dont know if there is even any legal recourse. but if i dont figure out a way to make this work im surely going to find out. there ARE no other options to premiere that are worth a damn. damn it.
