    Setting a standard for "Reformat" in Frame Flex Source Settings

    Hi everybody,

    we're currently working on an UHD project but our camerman shot everyhting in 4k (meaning 4096x2160, instead of 3840x2160). When I look at the Source Settings of each clip, it always uses "stretch" to reformat the video that is too wide to fit the 16:9 project resolution. I want it to always do center crop instead. I can't find a way to make center crop a standard for everything I import. It's always set to stretch. So now I have to remember to change the reformat option to center crop for every batch of files that I get.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    In the bin with the clips, select all you wish to change.  Right click one of them, modify settings, press Apply To All at the bottom.

    Yup, that's how I'm doing it right now. My point is, that I don't want to do it at all. Right now I have to do it for every reel I get, for.every bin. If I forget a bin or a clip, I  might not even notice because the difference is rather subtle. I would like to set the standard (which is "stretch") as a user or project or site setting, so I can't miss a clip. If I'd work with a lot of old 4:3 footage in an HD project I'd love to set it to letterbox. Stretching is almost always a terrible standard to handle non conform video in my opinion.
