Combining RAW and non-Raw footage in one video in premiere pro
« on: September 11, 2017, 08:45:39 PM »
Very very new here, and I'm still trying to figure everything out, so if this has been discussed before please direct me to the proper thread.  Here's my problem:

I want to combine shots that I took using different clips that are of different resolutions and frame rates.   For example, I have a 60fps Raw clip that I filmed at 1440x368 resolution with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, that I slowed down to 29.97fps.  I want to combine that with non-raw footage that I took at 1080 at 29.97 fps.  I am using AfterEffects to render the .dng using the Quicktime and H.264 settings.    In Premiere Pro I open a new 1080p sequence and import both clips.  Even though I click on scale to frame size with the raw clip it still doesn't match the frame size of the already 1080 clip, and I can't get the heights to match up.   Any suggestions?    I'm using 600D/T3i.

What's the timeline aspect ratio? Premier will scale the smaller clips to match the timeline, but I believe it will keep the clips aspect ratio the same. So if your clip is 2.35:1 and you use "scale to frame size"in a 16:9 timeline the clip won't fill the frame.

I'm assuming the clips are filling the frame horizontally after scale to fit is clicked, correct?

So I actually figured it out after playing around some more and found another video online.  The main problem was the horizontal width was fine but the vertical wouldn't fit - but I managed to manually expand it in AE before exporting to premiere.
