Welcome to the forum.
Are you talking about the Presets, included in PrPro, or Custom Presets, that have been created and Saved?
For the former, I am not sure how this could be done. Instead, I would just create a note, to go on each monitor, with the correct Preset to choose, or let the editors do things in a slightly different fashion - instead of choosing the Sequence Preset, let them Import the footage, and then drag the first Clip to the New Icon, to let PrPro pick the correct Preset.
Good luck, and maybe others will have more helpful ideas.
Without having to delete default options, could you create a "Template" project with the correct sequence settings you need inside the project. This way you could also template the folder structure so that projects contain uniformity between all of the editors. I know it doesn't directly answer your question, but that's how I would approach it, as I use a Template Project every time I start a new project and then just do a save as into the correct folder structure. If your not using Post Haste this can also be a huge time saver when managing multiple projects and editors.
Hope that helps.
>Universty TV station ... too many options for these guys
I had to laugh at the idea that college students can't read instructions and make correct decisions
That being the case, you might want to make a short, step by step list of what to select for both input and output
Then, if they can't follow your simplified instructions, give them a failing grade
John, most people can't follow directions.
The station is volunteer based and many are folks who've never done any editing before. Trying to make it as simple as possible for them so they don't get intimidated and run away.
Don't know how far in you want to go, but on my system I could go into the settings folder and just delete the presets I didn't want.
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS6\Settings\SequencePresets
Copy what you're going to delete to another folder (say in documents, etc...) so you have it if you need to put it back, but I tried it and it worked or me.
Thanks Jason! Spot on... But I forgot to mention that these are all Mac systems. I WISH these were Windows machines.
On Macs, you can Control Click on the Application icon in Applications->Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. Choose Show Package Contents from the drop down list.
Then, the go to contents, then Settings, then SequencePresets, just like on a PC.
Thank you greg! I'll try that out next time I'm in the lab.
