You can modify the appearance of your clip by cropping, rotating, or scaling.

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.

 

Auto-fill to frame

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. 

You can also manually fill frames by using the Fill or Fit options in the Transform panel.

Double click the clip in the timeline panel to open the Transform panel. Select either Fill or Fit to automatically fill to frame.

Fill - This option adjusts the frame to scale height.

To crop a video clip, do either of the following:

  • Move the Crop slider controls to crop pixels from the top, bottom, left, and right edges of your video.
  • Enter specific percentage values for the amount to be cropped.
feather

To adjust edge feathering:

  • Drag the Edge Feather slider, or enter a value from 0 to 100%.

Note:

Tip:  The Edge Feather control affects the edges of the original video image, so if you apply cropping, edge feathering may be hidden.
