Glitch when scaling down 4k footage to 1080p

  • I start by creating a new sequence, 1080 x 1920 (for Instagram)
  • I drag the 4k footage to the timeline and I click on "Keep existing settings"
  • The footage, instead of being in 4k, is automatically being converted to 1080p.


The problem is that it's now getting automatically scaled to 100%. Previously, it would be in 4k, which would give me the ability to zoom in and get different angles/etc.

It's important to note, that when I do this same test on 1920 x 1080, it works properly (the 4k footage remains in 4k). However, the issue only exists when I change it to 1080 x 1920.

If anyone has suggestions, please advise.

@Ann Bens Thank you for your response. The Default Media Scaling is set to "None". If you watch the attached video in my OP, you will see that this bug only occurs when the sequence is set to 1080 x 1920. It works correctly when it's the standard 1920 x 1080.Premiere Preferences.png

This did not ever occur for me in the past. I am now unable to take advantage of the full resolution of the 4K footage in a 1080 x 1920 sequence.
 
To clarify the error, instead of the 4K footage being added to the timeline as 4K, it's getting added in a lower resolution by itself. When I go to Effect Controls > Motion > Scale, it shows as 100% and when I scale out even one percent, the black bars show up.
 
The error can be clearly seen in my original video. 
 
Is there a solution for this, or is this just going to be another one of the many Premiere bugs that make the software impossible to use? Please let me know so I can start looking for an alternative solution to edit the footage for work.

When adding a 4K clip to a HD setting then yes it will come in as 100% because the default scaling is set to none.

And yes you are going to see black bars when zooming out on a landscape clip in a portrait setting.

having the exact same issue right now trying to import 4K video into an Instagram promo video. Did you find a solution? It doesn't sound like Ann's response solved this.

My problem actually ended up being a mistake that I made! I recorded it in
landscape I was expecting to scale the footage to portrait.

I had this issue. 

4k footage was scaling down to 1920x1080 HD when brought in from a 4k sequence to HD sequence.
It was showing as 100% scale but with no zoom.

The Default Media Scaling was already set to "None". 

However when I right-clicked the footage in the HD sequence, "Scale to frame size" was ticked.

When I unticked it, the 4k footage reverted to being 4k within the HD sequence. Requiring 50% scale to see full frame.

Hope this helps someone else, its my first resolve on the forum!
