When I drop 4k footage onto the timeline in Premiere Pro, I get a 4k sequence. When I change the sequence to 1080p, the image zooms in. This makes sense. I then scale the image back 50% and I'm back to normal.
In every single tutorial on downscaling 4k footage in premiere, no one ever has to do the 2nd step that I do. I thought I solved his issue by going to: "Edit > Preferences > General" and ticking the box "Default scale to frame size" but it's still happening.
How can I avoid this second step that no one seems to have to do?
