Having recently migrated from an Apple Final Cut Pro 7 system to Premiere, a feature that I greatly miss is the hability to simply press Cmd+R on a selection and it would be perfectly rendered for playback. For some reason, there is no such a thing in Premiere.
I'll often have clips marked yellow, with Lumetri effects from Speedgrade, that will play at a very slow framerate, even at 1/2 quality. And at 1/2 I'll sometimes not be able to see things like noise showing up. Cmd+R on these clips will simply play them back, it will not render them.
So sure, there is "Render & Replace", but that's not the same thing. I only want this or that segment to have smooth playback, I don't need to create new media yet, which will only make things more complicated on my timeline and workflow.
Is Premiere really missing this feature, and I should go the "feature request" route with Adobe, or am I missing out on something?
