Hi, how can I change the background color from my videos from Black to White? I am using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. TIA Screen Shot 2017-04-06 at 11.28.46 PM.png

Create a Color Matte (right-click in Project window, New Item -> Color Matte..) - you'll be prompted for the color after hitting Ok. Then drag the matte to your timeline and make it the bottom-most track.

Please be so kind and send me a screenshot of the first step and where exactly I have to "right-click". Sorry, I am quite new to Premiere Pro. Thanks so much!

I'll make it even easier. Go to File -> New -> Color Matte.

Thanks for clarifying, because the preivous answer was rather unhelpful.

Hello. I'm also searching for a solution to this but i don't want to use color matte because i will have this background on the entire video and one sequence line will be ocupied only with color matte white. I thought there might be a solution like the one in Photoshop to change de default background from black to white, grey or any color you'd like.
