Frustrating change in Premiere CS6

Anyone else see this? If I'm in the media browser and I double click on a clip to load it into the preview monitor, the directory I'm in reloads and resets back to the first clip. This is very frustrating as I'm moving through several hundred clips to review and tag them. I keep having to scroll back down to where I was previously.

This is not the way it behaved in CS5.5, the directory would not reload after loading a clip into the preview monitor.

Anyone else seeing this?

It may be a change in workflow that is frustrating, but you may want to give Prelude a spin as it may be of even greater value to you.

I don't know anything about Prelude, but I'll give it a look. Thanks for the tip.

Thank you for the suggestion of Prelude. Worked perfectly! Is this a new app, I don't recall seeing it in 5.5

It's new for CS6.

Re: Frustrating change in Premiere CS6

Another nit: the scroll bars on the timeline seem to have disappeared. Perhaps Adobe felt that their new sliders would made scroll bars unnecessary, but I can't get near the control with the sliders that I had with scroll bars. Or am I doing something wrong?

Re: Frustrating change in Premiere CS6

You can always click page up/page down. Or you can move the slider below - pretty accurate for me. Or you can click to the left or right of the slider (equivalent to page up/page down).

Re: Frustrating change in Premiere CS6

I'm not sure which scroll bars you're referring to... The selection of brackets and regions and ranges and view adjustments were, in my opinion, excessive in past versions.

There is a scroll on the bottom of the sequence panel which can be expended or moved...otherwise the cursor up/down or the scroll wheel on my track ball tend to be what I use.

I even hide the work area bar in CS6 and use in/out for everything...you can do all the in/out setting through keyboard shortcuts whereas dragging the work area and sizing it was...imprecise...most of the time for me.
