New Sequence from Clip using Premiere Pro SDK

Is there any way to either:

- Create a new sequence using the dimensions of a clip

- Change the frameSizeHorizontal and frameSizeVertical properties of a sequence within Premiere Pro, through the use of Extendscript / Javascript?

I am unable to directly change the frameSizeHorizontal and frameSizeVertical properties of the sequence since they are read-only I feel like one approach may be to create a temporary custom sequence preset using the desired dimensions of the sequence (is dependent on the clip in question, so cannot be hard-coded or created into a template). However this approach already seems far too involved for what should be a simple task. Any ideas?

While neither is possible, in shipping versions of PPro, both requests are at-or-near the top of PPro's API backlog, for future releases.

This makes me sad, thank you Bruce!

Do you know if the following workflow is possible through AE scripting?

1. Import Photoshop Document with multiple layers, importing individual layers
2. Create new sequence (or composition) with same dimensions as one of the layers
3. Insert + sequence the layers as needed

That all seems possible...

I propose you send me (at my day job; bbb@adobe.com) a full description from the user's perspective, of the workflow(s) you'd like to support. That would help me provide better guidance.

Is this now possible? So far I can only see the option to create a sequence from a preset, or needing interactive settings. I don't see how to create a sequence from a clip. This would make things way simpler.
