Auto Reframe Sequence making strange decisions

Hi there! 

I'm using auto-reframe sequence to change a 16x9 sequence to a 9x16 sequence for social media purposes. I've used auto-reframe sequence before in the same way and have had good results with it but for the past 5-10 or so times I've tried it I've got these strange results where it doesn't track with the subject's face. 

I'm attaching a clip so you can see its behavior. It's a pretty straightforward clip, a face is clearly in view and I've done this in the exact same setup before but I can't figure out what I'm missing. I know I can overwrite generated keyframes, which I've done before for the occasional hiccup, but it's like it sees a ghost in the clip and is off the whole time. Obivously, if I have to overwrite all of the keyframes it's not worth using it.

 

To add more details, I'm right-clicking on the sequence in the Project panel and selecting Auto Reframe Sequence, not applying the effect to individual clips. 

I'm really hoping it's just a bug that will get sorted soon or I'm doing something wrong, that would be even better, because I really like this feature for quickly pulling selects and reframing for social media.

This is my first time on these forums so be gentle with me. Any help is appreciated!

I've updated to version 23.1.0 of Premiere and I noticed that Auto-reframe does not work like it used to. On previous versions, it works most of the time, now it just scales up the clip/s and does not do any automatic keyframing  It did some automatic keyframing, but the adjustments are no more than 1pixel. There was also a time that it did work but the subject is not centered so I have to offset the reframing.

joeleo,

 

I can see how Auto Reframe could be a massive time-saver for social media work. And how this odd behavior would make it useless.

 

I have never used it. So I gave it a try, using a clip from an Adobe Beta tutorial related to the work on "assemble rough cuts from transcript":

https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-beta-discussions/text-panel-enhancements-part-2-assemble...

 

The Kerstin interview is the perfect material: the interviewee is mid-screen, head and shoulder shot, very little movement, none of which moves the head very much at all. Auto Reframe settings at default.

 

The general result is excellent: Frame is maxed vertically, and I could not crop horizontally any better doing it manually. EXCEPT that 9 times in the 3 minute 46 second clip, the frame moves completely off the subject (onto a wall with 4 pictures) and then back again. Each move is only a few seconds. I don't see any setting that would help a problem like this, but I did not experiment. I see there is a keyframed option for offset, which I assume can make adjustments. But in this material, I'd be better off just making the whole adjustment manually.

 

So in my one sample, I get results just like yours.

 

No need to be gentle with you! You provided very good information, and a good illustration of the problem. Always good to also provide operating system and exact version of PR.

 

I'm Win10. I thought I tested on PR 23.1.0, but I didn't: I am on Beta 23.2.0.48 - that's why I had that clip handy.

 

A moderator may change this to a bug report: that's what I think is warranted. In the new bug/feature system, you just make a regular forum post, and select the option for bug.

 

Is this a known issue? Can anyone provide a workaround? @Kevin-Monahan @Trent Happel

I am sorry for the frustration, michelle. How frustrating. I cannot say when the issue will get fixed, as I am not on the Premiere Pro Team. Hopefully, we can get a response. Thanks for upvoting the issue. I will continue advocating for the fix on behalf of the community.
