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.
- Locate the media bin in the bottom right corner of the Project window.
- Select the New Item icon and select Sequence from the menu.
- Choose a sequence preset from the list or create your own.
- Select the frame rate and resolution.
- Click on the Settings tab.
- Find the Editing Mode drop-down.
- Choose the relevant camera settings for your footage.
- Choose your time base/frame rate.
- Enter your resolution.
- Make sure you have Square Pixels chosen unless you have a specific reason not to do so, e.g., anamorphic.
- Always reference your source media and final export plans.
- On the Tracks tab, set how many video and audio tracks you want your sequence to include.
- Specify the type of audio track.
- Save preset.
- Name your preset.
Your new preset will now display in the Sequence Presets tab within the folder labeled Custom.
