Small Tip When Working with Multiple Cameras

So sometimes you might not have your high end camera around when your hit with a moment of inspiration. Don’t worry take out your lower quality phone and record.

When your back at the computer and you want to integrate this clip into your movie you drag and drop and….”SHOOT! the screen size is different than the default and it looks weird going from a 4:3 to a 16:9!” (aspect ratio, brush up on your TV history if you don’t get the reference).

Well the easy way to conform your new video to what you need is by simply right mouse click the picture/video in your Premiere Pro sequence and choose “Scale to Frame Size”. This useful tool will scale the image according to the height or the width (whichever is larger) with the aspect ration you have designated with the video.

It is an extremely handy tip when integrating pictures with film.
