Hello,

I am about to edit some Red Raw 4k footage and want to create Proxy-Files. The "Create Proxy" Dialog offers me a Proxy Preset "Pro Res Proxy 1536x790" which is the Aspect-Ratio of my footage. The footage uses 2:1 Anamorph Pixels, the converted Proxy ends up with square pixels squeezed into the 1536x790 leaving wide black strips at the left and right. Can I somehow change that or create a custom preset?

Thanks,

rené

You can create a custom preset in AME. First you will want to Create Encoding Preset, setting your desired Format and select the Video tab to set the video parameters such as Width & Height, Frame Rate, Field Order, Aspect, etc. Just make sure that your frame size/PAR combination is evenly divisible with your R3D clip and that the Frame Rate, Field Order and Aspect all match the R3D clip.Now you want to Create Ingest Preset, click the checkbox for Transcode files to Destination and select the En...

Have you Modified the RED clips for proper display?  Before creating the Proxies?

They don't come in squished?  Before making the proxies?

The originals show just fine. The dimension of the proxy also makes sense. Only that the image itself of the proxy is squeezed into that dimension instead of filling it out completly.

OK.  What are the dimensions of the original footage?

I'm also having this problem - my RED anamorphic files are 5184x4320 (1.2 ratio) with a pixel ratio of 2.0 (effectively 2.40 ratio) but the Proxy presets only seem to allow for 1.0, resulting in the same pillarboxes when the proxy toggle is selected. The proxies were QT ProRess 422 Proxy, at 1536x790

When I follow the Adobe instructions to create a new Ingest preset there is no option to specify the resolution or pixel ratio

You can use the Export Settings dialog to create new presets and export them to the hard drive for later Import as a Proxy Ingest preset.

Hi Trent, I'm having this issue as well, but I don't see the "Video" tab in AME you are referring to. Is this solution current in 2022? I have a preset that works fine with 16x9 footage, but some archival is other ratios and the proxies don't preserve the aspect ratio of the original files. I'd like to add AME to add pillar boxes to the footage.

The UI for the "tabs" has changed a bit since my original post, but you can still find the Video section when opening Preset Settings.

The tutorial video that Dansome listed below also covers custom preset creation.

Hey Michael, 

the download link is expired. Could you reupload the customs ingest presets for me? That would be awesome! 🙂

Hey Guys,

for everyone who has the same problem as me.

I found a good tutorial on youtube how to create custom ingest presets.

If you change the aspect ratio in your preset on media encoder and use this for building a proxy in premiere, you should´nt have these problems anymore.

You find the tutorial here : 

Creating Custom Ingest Presets for Proxy Workflows in Premiere Pro | Adobe Creative Cloud - YouTube
