A sequence can contain different types of assets, in different formats, and with various different parameters. However, Adobe Premiere Pro performs best when the settings for a sequence match the parameters of most of the assets used in that sequence. To optimize performance and reduce rendering times, find out the following parameters for the primary assets you want to edit before creating a new sequence. After learning the asset parameters, you can create a sequence with settings to match. If you will need to capture the assets from a tape-based device, you will need to know these parameters also to select the correct capture settings.
