I'm a beginner with Premiere CC and following a tutorial that strongly recommends creating sequence settings to match one's clip settings. This seems reasonable enough, but I can't find any suitable presets to match my clip settings. I was not the one who shot the footage, so I don't know what type of camera was used.
ARRI is the default, it seems - should I use that? Oh wait, the footage I have is in 1280x720 resolution, but the only presets available for ARRI are in 1920x1080. Do I need to start looking for ways to upscale the video to match the sequence preset? Should I create a new preset that matches my clip settings (if that is possible)?
I should note that my final video must be 1920x1080. I can decide the frame rate, but I prefer 30fps over 29.97 because it will be easier to create animated content for if that needs to be added.
I don't yet understand enough about Premiere to know whether having a sequence with different dimensions or FPS than the project is a problem, or whether Premiere just handles the conversions automatically - just to give you an idea of where my knowledge level is at.
- Dimensions 1280 x 720
- Frame rate 29.97
- Source audio 48000 Hz
- Project audio 48000 Hz - 32bit
- Pixel aspect ratio 1.0
Thanks in advance for any help getting unstuck here.
