I am frustrated by the way Premiere imports layers of a Photoshop file. It looks like it brings in the layers as 5 second clips with in and out marks. The hassle is when I an editing these to the sequence where I get this dialogue box that wants me to tell it how to deal with the marks: Ignore source in or out, ignore sequence in or out and so on. HAS ADOBE NEVER HEARD ABOUT 3 POINT EDITING? The source out point is always ignored in basic 3 point editing. In FCP and in AVID. Plus the default 5 seconds is not useful.
Is there any way to set the duration of layers and to keep the marks clear? Also the 3 Point Dialogue should default to ignore source out point.
Let me add my additional concerns over the complete lack of actual editing based preferences in Premiere. The ability to customize or alter the way Adobe has decided I should edit is quite unsettling. I came in with high hopes for Premiere, what with its After Effects, encoding and Photoshop integration. If Adobe is reading this I would love to get on a user panel to suggest many improvements to the editing interface of Premiere. I do lots of real world editing and there are some glaring problems with this software.
