"Set to Frame Width"

We import a lot of stills (stock images) into 1080 sequences. Most of these are not 16:9.

We can use "Set to frame size", but then need to scale them up to fit width.

It would be helpful to have the option to "Set to Frame Width".

Also great when using editing DCI footage in a 16:9 timeline. Fit to height doesn't work, you have to go in and manually scale.

Yes, just copy After Effects' options.

Yes, but maybe a "fit height" and/or "fill frame" option on top of your suggestion would be even better.

Agree that they need some better options. I think fit to fill would cover more bases. I often have the opposite problem where 4096x2160 footage will result in a silly amount of letterboxing in a 16:9 sequence.

I would suggest having three options.
- Fit to Width
- Fit to Height
- Fill Frame (stretch both height and width to match those of the sequence)

It is worth noting that "set to frame size" has a bug where one pixel will show around the perimeter. That would need to be fixed for this suggestion to be worthwhile. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/34818967-set-to-frame-size-...

I had to deal with this on a 1920x1080 timeline where someone had filmed broll all in DCI 4K, which meant it was scaling automatically to 46% instead of 50%.

Greetings Fellow editors,

I developed new extension: EXCALIBUR. It has "Fill Frame" command!
And you can assign shortcut to this command.

But it does much more than that, learn more here:

AE has this for ages. Cmd+Alt+W and Cmd+Alt+G, scales footage to fit height or width of comp. Simple. Please bring this to PR.

Surprised this is still not yet a feature (or, preferably as suggested, "touch from inside" / "fill frame"). This is basically a Windows 95 wallpaper level of functionality! 😁

In the meantime, is there another way that I can achieve this in Premiere? (E.g. a preset or some kind of script?).

I had thought about, e.g., creating a Photoshop action for batch processing images I use to 2160 height, and then a Premiere preset for scaling them to 50% -- but this is a little messy from my perspective (and I'd prefer to have the performance benefits of working with smaller images / no-higher-than original pixel density where possible).

@richard Herlihy - have a look at the comment from Sir Ivan below. Excalibur does that (and a lot more)

I've found a free extension that allows filling the whole frame: https://julien.chichignoud.com/adobe-premiere-handy-tools

Yes. Similar to "set to frame size". Could be called "fill to frame size"

YES, please! A feature/option like "fit to composition / width / height" in After Effects would be tremendously helpful with photos and other footage.
