Hello, I have a client who insist on shooting theirproduct clips Vertically... I rotate them just through the 'motion' tab or with a 'transform' effect, but the canvas stays horizontal.. I then manually adjust the Sequence settings... each time for each separate clip on it's own timeline
Because of the high number of clips, all these clicks add up and take so much time. Is there not a way to rotate the actual media file so that the aspect ratio stays correct? If Premiere doesn't offer this, maybe in a separate program like Media Encoder?
Thanks for any input..
On my phone so just from memory, but I think you should be able to select all the clips in a bin, then right-click and there's a way to change things ...
Yeah, I thought maybe in 'Modify > Interpret Footage' but no options, that I could see, for rotation or aspect ration..
What you would do is create a sequence with the correct custom settings, then save the preset.
I added the clips manually or automaticé the sequence, I selected the first clip and in movement> rotation I adjusted 90º, I save the preset, I use the preset or I copy and I paste the adjustments after selecting all the clips in the sequence (Ctrl + A) (Ctrl+V).
Thanks for sharing your workflow! Definitely better than what I've been doing.
You could copy the rotation value from one clip, select the rest of the clips and choose Edit > Paste Attributes. That's what I usually do.
I have the same issue and started a feature request. Here it is if you'd like to vote it up. Videos shot vertically on DSLR cameras are recorded as 16:9 ratio. When imported to premiere, they display 90degrees sideways. There needs to be a way to simply batch rotate these videos 90 degrees to 9:16 ratio.
hi, I've found the best solution I believe.
put a placeholder clip in the timeline, put Transform effect [ Video Effects > Distort > Transform ] on the video, adjust the rotation to your need, and then save the preset.
then all you gotta do is select all the clips you want to rotate in the bin, and then drag the preset you made onto the clips, voila all master rotated!
