to Choose the Right Sequence Settings Preset in Adobe Premiere Pro CC
Sequence settings are tricky.
are so many different types with wacky names. Knowing whether you want
something 1080i vs 1080p vs 720p vs 30fps vs 23.976fps vs 24fps is very
difficult. In the video below, I show you exactly how to get the right settings every time, no matter what type of video you are working with.
For those of you who don’t want to watch the video, here is the fool-proof way to get your settings right:
- Skip choosing settings when you start a project
- Import your footage to your project window
- Start a new sequence (ignore the sequence settings – it doesn’t matter now)
- Drag and drop any of your video into the sequence
- Now premiere pro will prompt you to change sequence settings to match those of the video
Now your sequence will have the perfect settings to match your video.
is the warning you’ll get if your video settings don’t match the
sequence settings – or when you drag and drop video into a new sequence.
Choose ‘change sequence settings.’
But I have multiple formats of video – what do I choose?
this is the case, you’ll have to choose which video you’d like your
sequence to match. Drag that type of video into the new sequence first,
and then have Premiere Pro automatically match the settings to that
video. Once you add any video to your sequence, Premiere Pro will not
prompt you to change the sequence settings when a new type of video is
added. This only works when there isn’t anything on your sequence
I hope this all makes sense, and you will now live headache free lives without worrying about changing sequence settings!
