multiple video formats in single sequence adobe premeire pro CS6 version 6.0

Hi create cow gurus,

I used an iphone to record lots of video on a recent trip I took. Some vertical, some horizontal. Is there anyway to get the original format of each video to play? Currently, because I dragged a vertical video into the sequence first, any horizontal video gets it's sides cut off, and only plays as a small square in the middle of the screen. Would be great to get any advice you may have on this. Thanks!

Aaron

How do you plan to play it back?
What's the display device going to be?
Did you shoot using a special camera app?
Is there sound that has to stay in sync with the video?

All crucial questions that need answers........

Hi Dave,

I plan for final export to be a quicktime or h264 file, primarily for playback on my laptop.

I filmed using the default video camera on iphone 7 plus.

I would love for the sound to stay in synch with the video, so far it has not stayed in synch at all.

Thanks again for any help.

I'd try to use Apple's iMovie for this. No kidding. It would probably work better. Here's why:

Oops. Big mistake. Your phone shoots in a VARIABLE frame rate. PP only works with fixed frame rates. That's why the video & audio drift out of sync. Not much you can do about it now... except to use a different editor. I would think that iMovie works okay with iPhone video. I can't comment using iMovie to mix normal horizontal & vertical (eeew!) video.

For future reference, you should look at getting an app called Filmic Pro. It forces iPhones to shoot at a fixed frame rate. It solves a lot of problems.
