Different camera, different size

Hi!

 

I'm actually working on a school project using Adobe Premiere Pro. To film the scenes, I used two cameras. I first worked with a Nikon 1V1 but then switched to a Canon T5i, which is where the problem begins. The shots don't have the same size, T5i looks more like a rectangle and 1V1, a square. I find myself editing with a crop image (for the T5i) if I use 1V1 as a reference and a black framed image (1V1) if I work with the T51.

 

Does anybody know how to fix my problem?

Thanks.

    It depends on the footage.

     

    But basically, you shot 4:3 and 16:9 from the sound of it, and there is no way to turn 4:3 into 16:9 unless you stretch it (distorting it) or zoom in (losing quality).

     

    However, it is confusing because according to Nikon, the 1V1 shoots this. None of these settings are square.

    You shot SD (4:3_ on one camera and HD (16:9) on the other.

     

    Create an SD Sequence and down rez your HD footage to fit. ( You will lose the sides of the HD frame).

     

    Hope that this is not a Film School Project!   (D -)

    That is what I assumed you meant. Looks like a 4:3 ratio.

     

    What are the properties of the footage? And did you create the sequence from the media, or did you create it and then drop the footage on the timeline?

    Look in the camera manuals to learn how to shoot consistent video (in other words... read up on your equipment before using)
