Simple Question Adobe CS5 different sizes

Nov 18, 2011 3:51 PM

Tags: #cs5 #monitor #size #adobe #video #sequence

Without getting into too much detail, I am just going to post up this image and my main goal is to get the (right) sequence preview the same size and resolution as the (left) monitor.  Can anyone help?

If additional info is needed just ask me, I will me more than happy to provide details. But I am sure it is just as simple as fixing the size somehow. 


Thanks!!!Screen shot 2011-11-18 at 3.41.06 PM.png

    Your Premiere Project Sequence does not match your source material.  ie they have different dimensions.


    Looks like you have used a SD preset and you need an HD one. (16:9)


    Drag a clip onto the NEW ITEM Icon at the bottom of the Project Window to create a proper sized sequence.

    You already have the files in your Project Window.


    Drag one of them down onto the little ICON at the bottom of the Window that looks like a Corner Turned Page ( Next to the Trash Bin - dont mistake them)


    That creates a matched sequence.


    Once you do that ...rename the Sequence to somethink like "MY EDIT Sequence". You do this in the project Window by clicking on thename of the sequence...which initially will be the name of the file you used to create it.


    All simpler than it sounds but it is a fundamental worth knowing.


    Next time create the sequence using the correct dimension and preset.

    Using footage from the two cameras is another issue.

  do not want an SD 4:3 (DV) sequence for the HD footage.  Is the GOPRo  HD?


    "Walk before you can run grasshopper".  Learn to make a matching sequence before anything else.


    Use a 1080 AVCHD Preset.

    Learning curves...


    If you use the tip I gave you earlier re the NEW ITEM will see what sequence it produces.


    Take a note of the dimensions and properties ..then you will know next time so that you can manually set up a sequence from a preset.

  get out the camera manual and see what AVCHD flavour you actually shot.


    or...I can just confidently tell you to use the  AVCHD 1080p30 preset.  (Ask me how I know that - clue: info is in your 1st frame grab))
