I want to import a quicktime movie which is 1024 x 576 into Premiere Pro. I can't find a suitable description in Premiere Pro preferences. When I import it, the project ends up as 720 x 576, with black vertical bars on each side. I want to export it eventually as 1024 x 576.
Right click the clip in the bin and select New Sequence from Clip. This will create a matching sequence.
