Hello, I have a 55″ 4k Samsung TV x Vertical 1080p Samsung. I do a lot of work in premiere that I’d like to see in fullscreen. But when I toggle the fullscreen button I only get a 1/4 screen image. I don’t know what’s the actual issue, whether it be the 4K monitor itself or the dual screen setup.
[Antoine SinClaire]“But when I toggle the fullscreen button I only get a 1/4 screen image.”
Do you mean the black parts on the top and bottom of the image? What is the resolution of your footage and what is the resolution of your sequence? It looks like the footage has a wider aspect ratio than the sequence and it has letterboxing because of that.
My Timeline and Sequence are Both 1080p 24f. I’m not referring to the crop of the image itself, I ‘ve merely added a crop from the effects.
If I’m correct PP’s fullscreen mode suppose to take up the entirety of one monitor. When I toggle fullscreen I get 1/4 the section of my TV.
I have a similar problem with my triple monitor setup (Full HD – 4K – Full HD monitors) as shown below:
As you can see, when I toggle full screen preview, the video is only about 2/3 of the monitor size. I’m pretty sure that Windows item scaling may have to do something with it, as I have it set to 150%. Premiere also has a huge problem with timeline zooming using scroll wheel on 4K monitors, but thats a different problem.
Anyway, since I couldn’t find any solution, maybe this workaround will help you:
I noticed when I alt+tab switch to any other application during my fullscreen preview, and then go back to premiere, the image magically becomes actually full screen size. The faster method to achieve this is just pressing the start button (if you’re on windows 10 like me), which “deactivates” premiere and sets the start menu as active window, and then pressing it again to make the menu disappear, which sets premiere as an active application again. It’s a pretty quick way to get what we want, as it’s just two taps more – the fullscreen toggle key, and then windows key twice.
