What is Ctrl+N in Premiere Pro?

Ctrl+N is a keyboard shortcut in Adobe Premiere Pro that creates a new sequence. A sequence is a timeline that you use to edit your video clips. When you create a new sequence, Premiere Pro will open the Sequence Settings dialog box, which allows you to specify the settings for your sequence, such as the frame size, frame rate, and timecode base. You can also create a new sequence by clicking the File menu and selecting New > Sequence.

How to use Ctrl+N

In the Sequence Settings dialog box, you can specify the following settings:

  • Sequence name: The name of your sequence. This name will appear in the Timeline panel.
  • Frame size: The width and height of your video frames. The default frame size is 1920x1080, which is the most common size for high-definition video.
  • Frame rate: The number of frames per second your video will play back at. The default frame rate is 24fps, which is the standard frame rate for cinema.
  • Timecode base: The way timecode is displayed in your sequence. The default timecode base is 00:00:00:00, which means that the video will start at 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds, and 0 frames.

Once you have specified the settings for your sequence, click the OK button. Premiere Pro will create a new sequence and open the Timeline panel. You can now add media to your sequence and edit your video.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about Ctrl+N:

  • If you already have a sequence open, pressing Ctrl+N will not create a new sequence. Instead, it will duplicate the current sequence.
  • If you want to create a new sequence without opening the Sequence Settings dialog box, you can use the keyboard shortcut Alt+N.
  • You can customize the keyboard shortcuts for Premiere Pro, including the Ctrl+N and Alt+N shortcuts. To do this, go to Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts.

I hope this helps!
