While you can customize your settings, these tips are faster.
Premiere’s Sequence Settings panel is daunting. Even experienced editors scratch their heads over some of these options.
Fortunately, Premiere has two fast ways to configure a sequence – provided you have a clip that’s in the format you want to edit.
Drag a clip from the Project panel on top of the New Item icon in the low right corner of the Project panel. This creates a new sequence, configures it to match the clip and edits the clip into the start of the sequence.
Create a new sequence using any setting option. Then, DRAG a clip from the Project panel into the new sequence.
A dialog appears asking if you want to change the sequence to match the clip.
NOTE: If you use a keyboard shortcut to edit a clip into the sequence, the clip will match the sequence settings.
Once a sequence has a clip in it, many of the Sequence settings can’t be changed.
For those situations where the first clip you want in your project does not match the sequence you want to create, edit a clip that does match into the sequence first. After you add a few more clips, which locks the settings, you can delete the first clip.
These two tricks are far faster than wrestling with the sequence settings themselves.

The Crop tool is an important tool in the video editor’s toolkit. Here are six tips to help you get more out of it.
Add a Crop. The Crop tool is located in Effects > Video Effects > Transform > Crop – or just search for “crop”. Then, drag it from the Effects panel onto your clip. You can crop using the Left, Right, Top, and Bottom parameters. These parameters are also animatable using keyframes.
NOTE: You can also crop using Adjustment Layers.
Wide screen. Add classic wide screen bars to the top and bottom of your image. (An adjustment layer will do this to your entire sequence.)
Text. Animate a crop to imaginatively reveal your text.
Create a split screen. Stack the clips you want to see, then apply the crop to the top clip.
Create a spicy transition. First, make sure the upcoming clip is atop the tail end of your current clip. Then, add the crop effect to both clips. For the bottom clip, enable the zoom (in the crop effect), then raise the bottom by about fifteen percent, with your keyframes set toward the end of the clip. This’ll stretch out the video downwards. Then, for the top clip, animate the bottom from one-hundred percent to zero percent. This’ll bring the clip down, following the first clip.
Reveal effects. Apply effects to your clip, then nest them. Duplicate the nest and stack it above the clips with the effects. Remove the effects from the clips in the top nest. Then, wipe between the two nests.

This article is an excerpt from an Apple KnowledgeBase article.
The Path layout method lets you place text on a baseline path that you can warp to create curving or angular trails of text. After you create text on a path, you can modify or extend the path, add or remove control points, or animate text on the path.
CREATE TEXT ON A PATH
In Motion, select text in the canvas, Layers list, or Timeline.
In the Layout pane of the Text Inspector, click the Layout Method pop-up menu, then choose Path.
The Path Options controls become available, near the bottom of the Layout pane.
In the canvas toolbar, select the Text tool (shortcut: T), then click the text in the canvas.
NOTE: Step 3 is important—the Text tool must be selected to view or edit the text path.
The path appears below the text. The default path shape is a straight line (an open spline) with three control points.
NOTE: To add a control point, Control-click the path and choose Add Point.
Read the rest of the article to learn how to adjust, extend or modify the path.

Looking for a fast way to evenly light a green-screen background?
Let the sun light both your talent and background. However, to avoid screaming at your screen during editing, make SURE your green – or blue – background is as smooth as possible. Wrinkles are almost impossible to key well.
Once we have a rough cut complete, it is often necessary to move or replace clips in the timeline. Here are two tricks that make that easier.
To move a clip to a new position, press and hold both Command and Option. Drag the clip so the In of the clip you are moving is at its new location. While you would generally place it on the same track that it came from, you can actually place the swapped clip on any track.
As soon as you let go of the mouse, the clip shuttles into its new position and the clips to its right scurry down to fill the gap.
To replace a clip without losing any transitions or effects applied to it:
Select the clip in the timeline you want to replace
Drag the new clip from the Project panel on top of the existing clip while pressing Option (Alt).
Double-system sound provides the best audio, but requires an extra step in post.
This article, written by Rachel Klein, first appeared in PremiumBeat. This is an excerpt.
Recording audio and video separately on set ensures you get the highest quality sound for your project. Using an external shotgun microphone and syncing your audio with a slate, snap, or a clap is essential.
Your three main options for syncing audio to video are Red Giant’s Plural Eyes software, Premiere Pro’s Merge or Synchronize options, or doing it manually.
Automatically. The best option by far (but with a price tag of $200) is Red Giant’s Plural Eyes. To synchronize, simply open Plural Eyes and click Add Media or drag your clips directly into the app. Next, hit the Synchronize button and watch the program do its thing. Successfully synced clips will show up in green, while clips with errors are red. If you get a red error, navigate to the Sync drop-down tab and make sure you’ve selected “Try Really Hard.”
Once everything is synced, click Export Timeline and drag the exported project directly into Premiere Pro. As an added bonus, Plural Eyes also can help correct audio drift in your project.
Merge. To merge clips using Premiere, select the video and audio files you want to merge in the Project panel. Right-click the selected clips and choose “Merge Clips.”
A menu will open up, allowing you to name your newly synchronized clip. Select “Audio” as your “Synchronize Point” and make sure to select “Remove Audio From AV Clip.” Hit OK and you’re all done.
Manually. Edit the audio and video clips into the timeline. Then, align the spike in the waveform of the clapper slate with the frame where the slate just closes.
