Utilizing Bins in More Than One Project

Why do the same work twice? Premiere allows you to take bins created in one project and access them in another project. This can be extremely helpful in many areas. For one thing, you have to do the work only once as far as digitizing or importing all the clips and naming them. This becomes very advantageous in many situations. What if you have a repeat client who always needs certain elements for each of his projects? Why not create a bin that you can access from each new project you create for the client? (Unless you've blown the media clips off your system, you'll look more professional by pulling up all the necessary files instantly rather than doing the work you've already charged him for.) To access bins from various projects, follow these steps:

In the project where you first created the bin to be reused, click the bin you want to have access to from other projects.

Select Project > Export Bin From Project, or right-click (Windows) or Option-click (Macintosh) to bring up a pop-up menu and Select Export Bin From Project.

In the Save File window, select the destination where you want to save the bin. You can choose to rename it in order to easily identify the file. Make sure Premiere Bin (*.plb) is displayed in the Save as Type: field at the bottom of the window.

Click Save. After the file is saved, you have access to this bin from any other project.

Open another existing project or create a new one.

After you are inside, select File > Open or select Open Recent File (if you have not created a number of new files in the interim).

Locate the bin you saved, and select it.
