Heads up, the Auto Reframeeffect is available to the public! It’s easier than ever to prepare your project for multi-platform posting, without having to leave Premiere Pro! Here’s a quick walkthrough with all the info you need to get the best results out of this new feature.
Here's the breakdown.
Auto Reframe is best usedafter you've locked down your cut, but before adding transitionsto your clips! Consider it a finishing tool.
Make sure you have a clear subject in the frame. Like all AI tools, Auto-Reframe performs better when it istracking an object of high contrast.
You can apply it to a single clip by finding "Auto Reframe" in theEffects paneland dragging it to the clip in your timeline.
A more common use is to apply the effect to an entire sequence – when you're done editing and you're preparing the post for multiple social platforms.Sequence > Auto Reframe Sequence... You can also right-click the sequence in your project panel to select "Auto Reframe Sequence..."
In the dialog box that appears,rename your sequence.
Choose theaspect ratiothat you want your project framed within.See below for more details.
Choose whether you'd like tonest your reframed clipsor not. Auto Reframe creates keyframes on your Effect Controls panel, so if you choosenotto nest your clips, it will replace any keyframes that you created before applying the effect. If youdonest your clips, it will preserve your keyframes, but it will break transitions between your clips. Choose wisely!😁
Horizontal 16:9is like what you'd see on YouTube.
Horizontal 4:3is similar, but it's not as wide. You'll see this aspect ratio more on Instagram posts.
Square 1:1is also very common on Instagram.
Vertical 9:16is great for posting stories on most social platforms.
@carolinesears. What is the best way to edit the position of keyframes once the effect is applied. Currently it says "Motion (disabled when Auto Reframe is applied). I can edit the timing etc., but not position.
