How do you set clips to frame by width rather than height? In need of "Scale full frame with crop."

I have a short film that was shot in 4:3 (at 5552x4162) but framed for 1.85. I have made a timeline at my desired resolution (1998x1080), but I do not know the best way to scale and crop the footage to properly fit the timeline.

 

If I use the "Set to Frame Size" or "Scale to Frame Size" options, it will give me the full 4:3 image with black bars on the left and right, which is NOT what we intended. I want the image scaled down so that its width is 1998 while leaving the top and bottom parts out of the image, as it was framed while filming.

 

I know how to manually scale clips to do this, but that would be very inefficient to do for every single clip. Is there a way to automatically fit the clips by width rather than height?

 

I know that this is possible within DaVinci Resolve (Go to Project Settings - Image Scaling - Input Scaling - Mismatched resolution files - Scale full frame with crop), so I hope there is a similar feature in premiere there's something I'm just missing.

Put your clips on the sequence. Set the first clip to the scale needed.

 

Ctrl/Cmd-C to Copy.

 

With the cursor over the second clip, tap the A key for "track select forward" selecting all clips under and to the right of the cursor.

 

Right-click, Paste Attributes ... select the Motion option.

 

Done.
