Organization Through Bins

This is where you begin to truly organize your project. In order to digitize or import source material, you need to create at least one bin in the Project window.

You can keep all your media files in one large bin or separate the clips into various bins for easier access with minimal search time. The clips and files you see in Premiere's project window and bins are only reference icons for the actual media clips. These icons do not contain the media. They contain the information used to retain the source's data and location in order to display the image or play the audio when called upon. The digitized media actually resides somewhere else on the hard drive.
