How to Use Sequence Presets in Adobe Premiere Pro

How To 2 min
Like a template, a sequence preset is a preconfigured setting for a video sequence. It defines video settings such as resolution, frame rate and audio sampling rates.

The screencast tutorial from Vimeo demonstrates how to create a custom sequence preset in Adobe Premiere Pro. Although Premiere comes with some included presets, you can save time by creating a custom sequence that accurately matches your camera footage resolution, aspect ratio and frame rate when editing multiple videos that require the same settings. Follow along with the steps below.

  2. Select the New Item icon. 

  1. Choose a sequence preset from the list or create your own.
  2. Select the frame rate and resolution.

  2. Find the Editing Mode drop-down.
  3. Choose the relevant camera settings for your footage. 
  4. Choose your time base/frame rate.

  1. Enter your resolution.
  2. Make sure you have Square Pixels chosen unless you have a specific reason not to do so, e.g., anamorphic.
  3. Always reference your source media and final export plans.
  4. Set how many video and audio tracks you want your sequence to include.
  5. Specify the type of audio track.
