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
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.
Thanks a mill for the tip. I will try this right now. I am going to make all my projects widescreen so should I choose one of the widescreen setting when choosing a sequence setting?
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.
@Karasing @Peru Bob,
I do have Adobe CS6 but I am very new to the software. Since I incorrectly chose the frame size it gave me my widescreen borders without me wanting them. Kind of cool I guess. I don't see a 'Project Assist Tab' anywhere. I have a new project I haven't loaded yet and just want to know what I should set my settings on my new project to not get my widescreen by accident next time. LOL
As you told that you are new user of premier pro . Below is the document that might can help you in knowing how to st up the sequence.
Quickest way to set up a sequence that matches the footage:
Thank you to everyone in this Adobe Forum, your guys are the kindest ppl I know, not kidding. I will upload my next project very carefully along these lines. If anyone knows how to corret jagged edged lines in my final video, I have another discussion I'm in need of help. The footage is not jagged edged so somewhere in the trasnfer it got that way even after rendering. I haven't exported yet as there is one more shot missing in the final film. I know, im talking a totally different subject. But again thank you for this information.
