    So I just put a video out about why I'm in the process of leaving Premiere, for resolve.
    One R3d focussed issue is that now whenever I try to 'auto set white balance' in the metadata Adobe freezes. On any hard drive, and any shot.



    Literally just after posting this I'm now finding everytime I try to export a still frame (just a jpeg) from the timeline, if I click browse... the whole thing freezes.

    I'm in the process of seeing if I can totally, or partially leave Adobe... mainly due to its instability and IMO not consumer friendly business model.

    Anyone else in the same boat? Have you left Premiere or Adobe entirely? I've been with the software for over 15 years so it's kind of crazy to be trying to move on after all this time... but I'm loving Resolve (as an editor) the more I use it.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles. We edit a ton of multistream 8k monstro and rarely if ever have crashes. Have not used auto white balance though. Still frame export no problem.

    Watched the video.

    Sounds like you're dealing with the same issues as a lot of other current and former Adobe customers are, in terms of the business model and the software itself.

    The project-by-project renting of After Effects sounds like a practical solution, if not an actual way of gradually leaving it behind altogether.

    I don't know enough about it myself, maybe some of the experts here can address the viability of Fusion as an After Effects alternative.

    Also wondering if it's possible for you to go back and install an older pre-subscription version of After Effects that you bought, or are there features of the later versions that you need?

    WOW. Thanks for the info on still frame exports. Do you auto update premiere? How careful are you with that?

    Aaron, how long were you with Premiere for? Do you use AE or photoshop? Any Adobe at all? How are you finding Resolve? What were your biggest challenges at the start? Thanks man

    Hey Les, Yeah sounds like there's quite a number of people who are either thinking of or have partially or fully jumped ship for varying reasons. Think the big one is reliability. I'd also really LOVE to hear from anyone who's say gotten into Fusion after having more of an AE background.

    As for AE (which I find much more stable than Premiere Pro) at the moment I'm in the middle of a short with a scene with heaps of rotoscoping. And the rotoscoping tool in AE is BRILLIANT IMO. Don't know if there's anything that can do that in Fusion.

    I don't auto-update but do update pretty soon after new versions are released unless i hear of any major issues.

    Using windows 10, xeon cpus, nvidia, etc.

    Yeah I have a 1080ti intel CPU windows 10... Similar on the updates but I just still have to deal with general crashes everyday. Haven't had that with Resolve (on the same system) + smoother playback.
