Set to frame size in Premiere Pro CS6
on Jun 8, 2017 at 3:10:36 am

Hi everyone,
I want to set the frame size of a movie I imported into premiere (have come from using FCP and it never did this!) because it must be compressed, so it is half the size of the frame. The file is 1.87 gb so I think I should be able to increase size without it pixellating (hopefully) and youtube seems to say I should set the frame size. But when I right click on the clip it just has scale to frame size (which is not as good i think!) and I can't find it anywhere else. Does anyone know if its just not in the version I've got, or is it called something different?
Would be very grateful if someone could clarify.
Thanks!

If I remember correctly that feature is not in CS6 and it came a bit later. You can manually scale the clip to fit the frame size. If you have more clips you can copy the attributes from that clip to the others so you don't need to do it multiple times.

Thank you very much, I have been trying to solve this all day. So you mean click on that box in the effects control and just type in a value until it fills the frame? Wont that pixellate it?

Yes. You set the scale attribute until the image fills the frame.

If you're scaling up then there'll be some quality loss.

Hi Samantha,

I think we're putting the cart before the horse here. We should be looking at the overall workflow before anything else.

First off, what are the dimensions of the video source clip, such as 720p (1280x720) or whatever? It is typically best to edit in a Sequence whose settings match the video (frame size, frame rate, pixel aspect, fields). The simplest way to get there is to right-click the video clip in the Project Bin and select New Sequence from Clip. Now you have a good foundation on which to base your work.

From there, what is the intended destination of the edited video? For YouTube export, choose H.264 and then there are presets for YouTube that you can select.

Please let us know the specs of the video source and we can proceed from there with ideas for the best workflow.

As for Scale to Frame, if it comes down to needing to use that, it can actually be enabled as a default in Preferences. Then any clips Imported after making that change will automatically be scaled to fit.

Thanks

Hi,
Thank you both for your replies. After looking at the specs I realised the imported video was 720 by 575!! Such low quality. I dont think it would be wise to scale up, so I am sourcing the original material. It seems so obvious now!
Thanks again,
-S

Jeff

Can you help with my issue re set to frame size?

I have clips in 2k (Red), HD (Blackmagic CC and Canon SLR) and 4k (Blackmagic again). However most of the footage is 2k so would like to edit 2k timeline.

Am able to set 4k to 2k w/o problem, but the HD footage has pillar bars unless I use Scale to Frame Size not Set.
I've tried making Set as my default in Preferences, setting in Timeline, etc but can't get it to work.

Is this because it's using the 1080 part of the image to determine frame size rather than 1920 or 2048?

Thanks

Hi Brett,

When Premiere scales an image to fit the screen, it scales it up as much as possible without cropping off any of the image. A 1920x1080 clip is exactly a 16:9 ratio. Changing the 1920 to 2048 for 2K throws off that ratio, thus the black bars. You will have to scale a bit more to remove the black bars, and in the process will also be cropping a small bit of the image. Is what it is.

Thanks
