Choosing the right settings in Premiere Pro CS5.5

One reader asks about choosing settings when setting up Premiere Pro. The reader has a clip with unknown properties. In older, consumer versions of Sony Vegas, you used to be able to tell the program to create a project based on the properties of a clip, the reader said. She wants to be able to do that in Premiere Pro.

... well .... you can.

Here's how. In Premiere Pro CS5.5, you can create a new sequence from a selected clip by one of the following methods:

Drag and drop a clip onto the New Item button.
Choose File>New>Sequence from Clip.
It's actually pretty easy, once you get the hang of it.
