How do I STOP my Text Effects Scaling down when I crop my video?

I have a video finished and edited. It has LOTS of titles and text effects.

 

I export my widescreen 1920x1080 version and everything looks great.

 

Then I duplicate that sequence and change the settings to 1080 x 1080 for a square version I will post on FaceBook and instead of just cropping, it resizes all the text and it looks terrible.

 

All my text was placed within the 1080x1080 square boundary.

 

See screenshots.

 

I just want it all to stay in place but Premiere automatically resizes.

 

I have tried with and without the "Scale motion effects Proportionally when changing frame size" option in the sequence setting box.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks in advance.

Instead of changing sequence settings (Scale motion effects Proportionally wont do anything in this case) crop on export.

That really doesnt solve my problem, as I need to make some edits within
the sequence too.

It's not just an export and done project.

I need to be able to change some of the text on the cropped version

thx

Duplicate sequence and treat as if if were 1080x1080.

 

Auto reframe is an option but can also have some issues with text.

I have done exactly that... duplicated the sequence, then when I resize it all goes wrong.

Dont resize. Set guides and use the position properties to centre so you can crop in the export.

Still seems like a clunky solution... but if this is the best premiere can do I'm surprised. I need to refine my edit before exporting.

Have you tried auto-reframe? That was designed to work for this situation.

Unfortunately Auto Frame does not suit me... I need very precise control over this project.
 
Thx

Auto-reframe is designed to do the quick conversion, and then you 'trim' things as needed. Supposed to simply save some steps.

 

You do need to know how to properly "pin" your graphics in the original project sequence so the a-r controls move them where you want them when it sets things up in the new format.

If you want your text to stay exactly the same without Premiere doing anything to it, do the following.

1- Duplicate the sequence and change the frame size.

2- Remove all your text from the new sequence.

3- Select all text from the old sequence and nest.

4- Copy the nest and paste it on the new sequence.

5- You can open the nest and do the change you need, just be careful that any changes you make inside the nest will affect both sequences, if you don't want that, you need to duplicate the nest from the project window.
