    How do I pick the right sequence preset? Premiere Pro CS4

    reillc01 Community Member

      I'm really struggling with sequence presets. I have tried matching details from media info with presets, but my exports still don't look right. When I have looked at codec.com to download codecs that seem to match my assets, I don't know how to discover what codecs are already installed. Can someone please help me understand this difficult concept please?

       

      Here are the Media Info specs from two different assests I have tried to match. They are just examples and don't need to be in the same sequence.

       

      Thanks in advance!
