"Set to Frame Width"
We import a lot of stills (stock images) into 1080 sequences. Most of these are not 16:9.
We can use "Set to frame size", but then need to scale them up to fit width.
It would be helpful to have the option to "Set to Frame Width".

I had to deal with this on a 1920x1080 timeline where someone had filmed broll all in DCI 4K, which meant it was scaling automatically to 46% instead of 50%.
It is worth noting that "set to frame size" has a bug where one pixel will show around the perimeter. That would need to be fixed for this suggestion to be worthwhile. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/34818967-set-to-frame-size-is-inaccurate
I would suggest having three options.
- Fit to Width
- Fit to Height
- Fill Frame (stretch both height and width to match those of the sequence)

Agree that they need some better options. I think fit to fill would cover more bases. I often have the opposite problem where 4096x2160 footage will result in a silly amount of letterboxing in a 16:9 sequence.

Yes, but maybe a "fit height" and/or "fill frame" option on top of your suggestion would be even better.
Carlos Robles commented
Yes, just copy After Effects' options.

Also great when using editing DCI footage in a 16:9 timeline. Fit to height doesn't work, you have to go in and manually scale.

And it's corollary, Set to Frame Height.
