What are the right sequence setting for HD Widescreen Video?

Nov 26, 2013 9:51 AM

Tags: #widescreen_framing

Hey Everyone,

 

When I started my project I noticed when I transferred my file to the timeline it created black borders. I saw a few videos online about choosing the right sequence settings. Well, I shoot with the same settings on my DSLR's and just wanted to know if you had any tips on matching the sequence settings for my desired films. I can surely adjust my DSLR settings so it can save me a headache in the post production. All of my projects will be HD Widescreen Videos. Can anyone help me out?

 

Note:My DSLR settings are MPEG movie, 1920x1080, 23.976 Frame Rate, Pixel Aspect Ratio 1.0

 

 

Michael

    Hi,

    If you are using premier pro CS6 or CC , Just right click on the clip in the project assest Tab and click on the option "New Sequence From Clip".

    It will automatically chose the best setting for your clip.

    Hi,

    Widescreen is in DV , so the frame size is 720*480 , whereas the clip setting you have is 1920*1080 . So sequence setting will not match the clip setting and that Might give you problem.

    HI,

    The first screen you get is of setting the sequence setting .

    According to the clip setting just select the below sequence setting.

     

    Digital SLR->1080P->DSLR1080p 24.

    Right click the clip in the bin and choose New Sequence from Clip.

     

    On a side note, all HD is widescreen (16:9).  There are no 4:3 HD formats.

    Your second problem could very easily be the result of the first.  Implement the solution and check things over.
