Hi, I'm new to Premiere and am making a short film.
I'm filming with a Canon 600D, which produces a .MOV file (which I've heard are nortoriously hard to work with). The frame width is 1920 and the length is 1088. It was shot at 25fmps.
When I attempt to create the settings of a sequence the preview clip is cropped from the original ratio, that's one problem.
I think maybe I'm entering in other mistakes into my sequence that might reduce the quality (I don't know how this works).
I guess I'm asking what should I pick for:
Fixed Pixel Ratio
Preview file Format
And any other important ones.
Also, I've been told I should use Cineform.. (my computer can't handle previewing files) would this effect these sequence settings also?
I'm very green, but eager for knowledge.
If you can help me, that would take a load of stress off..
Thankyou so much. You don't know how much you've helped me.
I've already stitched together some scenes, is it possible to change the settings of the sequence to match the files without deleting everything? I don't want to start the project again with the new sequence settings, just time-consuming.
You cannot change sequence settings once they are set but...
Grap a clip from the Project Window and make a new sequence as shown in the tutorial.
Rename sequence and delete clip from timeline.
Copy all the clips from old sequence and paste this in the new sequence.
