Change Sequence Resolution Manually
I noticed when I select clips to add to the sequence, it automatically sets the sequence resolution. It'd be great to be able to set the resolution manually. I shoot 1080 and 4K on my phone and it'd be great to be able to select which size I want to edit in.

Great to hear it takes the resolution from the first video clip, as it'll be useful, but having started a 4k edit (for to media on my phone) and adding contributors media shot on their phones (at lower Res) and running out of resizability after I started - it's going to be annoying to restart the edit and lose all the work so far...

Yeah, this is stupid. All of my cameras shoot high frame rates at 1080p and lower frame rates at 4k. I don't know by looking in the finder window which is which. The process of ingesting and getting it into an NLE is where that evaluation happens. If you're not going to let me set the resolution of the project myself, at least let me change it once I've started the project. Having to close it and start over kind of defeats the purpose of "Rush." I can get a better, faster result with the same quick workflow plus added functionality if I need it, for less money, with DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut. If I can't even do BASIC BASIC stuff like change resolution in Rush, what's the point?

This doesn't help much. I can't guarantee that clips will come in at all like the resolution I want to end up with.
We really should be able to set the X/Y dimensions at the start, or at least aspect ratio + resolution.

I second this request. As a seasoned user of Adobe software, I'm used to having a "document setup" dialog where I can oversee the global settings such as the size of the stage and the framerate.
What if I'm making two different versions of the same video clip for two different resolutions? I'd have to get my hands on a video that is the resolution I want to export to, then import that into a new document and then copy all my stuff from one document to the other (assuming that would work, I'm not sure if I can have more than one project open at once, but that's a whole different story). The Irony is that I have to create a video project in regular old Premiere, so that I can import it into Premiere Rush, the programme that was literally made to streamline the user experience of creating a video montage. Do you see the irony?
You can't streamline basic video resolution settings away.
Thanks for the suggestion. Having the option would be nice! For now here's how Rush works. The sequence resolution is based on the first video clip you import into your project. If you want to work in a 1080 sequence, just make sure you select the 1080 clip before selecting a 4k clip.
Hope this help!
