To make these types of adjustments, select the clip in the timeline and open the Crop & Rotate panel. The adjustment settings are grouped into Basic and Advanced controls.
Premiere Rush automatically fills the frames when the aspect ratio of imported media does not match aspect ratio of the sequence. This is applied to all imported media by default, and prevents black bars on the sides of your videos.
Double click the clip in the timeline panel to open the Transform panel. Select either Fill or Fit to automatically fill to frame.
Position the timeline playhead over a clip to select it, and then click Crop & Rotate. Use the Basic transform controls to adjust position, rotation, opacity, and scale.
Reposition a clip
- Using the Basic controls, drag the Vertical Position slider to adjust the vertical position of a clip. Drag the Horizontal Position slider to adjust the horizontal position of the clip.
- Alternatively, enter specific values for both Horizontal Position and Vertical Position, and press Return.
The Advanced transform controls allow you to adjust Crop and Appearance settings for your video clips. Cropping the top or bottom of an image—or both—can help you transform a standard video into a widescreen look. The Appearance controls allow you to adjust edge feathering.
Tip: The Edge Feather control affects the edges of the original video image, so if you apply cropping, edge feathering may be hidden.
