I'm creating computer graphic animations at 30 and 60 fps output as single PNG images. The issue is that every time I import the frames into Adobe Premiere Pro it defaults to 29.97 fps. This obliges me to select the sequence and go to Sequence > Sequence Settings > Timebase and select 30 fps with every new sequence; I never work with 29.97 fps.  How do I set the global default to be something other than 29.97 fps? Thanks. Premiere Pro v2.22, Windows 11.

Go to Edit > Preferences > Media and set the Indeterminate Media Timebase to either 30 or 60. This will have no effect on images already imported.

If you set it to 30, imported images comes in as 30 fps.

If you set it to 60, imported images comes in as 60 fps.

 

As stated, this will only work for stills you import and will not effect already imported images, so planning is the key here.
