How Do I Resize a Video in Adobe Premiere Without Losing Quality?

Are you trying to resize a video in Adobe Premiere but worried about losing its quality? Well, don’t worry – it’s possible to resize a video without compromising its quality. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to do just that.

Step 1: Import the Video

The first step is to import the video you want to resize into Adobe Premiere. To do this, open Premiere and create a new project.

Then, click on the “File” menu and select “Import” from the dropdown options. Browse for your video file and select it.

Step 2: Add the Video to the Timeline

Once you’ve imported your video, drag it onto the timeline at the bottom of the screen.

Step 3: Select and Scale

To resize your video without losing quality, you need to select it first. Click on the video in your timeline so that it’s highlighted. Then, click on the “Effect Controls” tab in the top-left corner of your screen.

Under “Motion,” you’ll see options for scaling your video. You can adjust either width or height by clicking on one of these options and entering a new value manually or dragging the slider until you reach your desired size.

Pro Tip:

Hold down Shift while resizing to maintain aspect ratio and avoid any distortion.

Step 4: Render Your Video

Once you’ve resized your video, it’s essential that you render or export it correctly to preserve its quality. Click on “File” in the top menu bar and select “Export” from the dropdown menu.

In the Export Settings window that appears, choose your format and preset as desired. For best results, we recommend using H.264 as your format with a high bitrate setting for optimal quality.

  • Format: H.264
  • Bitrate: High

Finally, click on “Export” and wait for your video to render. Once it’s complete, your resized video should be ready to use without any noticeable loss in quality.


Resizing your video in Adobe Premiere without losing quality is a straightforward process that requires just a few steps. By following the steps outlined above, you can easily resize your videos while maintaining their original quality and aspect ratio. So go ahead and give it a try – you’ll be amazed at how simple it is!
