Starting the Tour

To begin, you need to launch Adobe Premiere 6.0, set up your workspace, create a new project, and then import the video clips.

1.
Make sure you know the location of the files used in this lesson. Insert the Adobe Premiere Classroom in a Book CD-ROM disk. Copy the Tour folder to your hard drive. For help, see “Copying the Classroom in a Book files” on page 14.

2.
To ensure that the Premiere preferences are set to the default values, exit Premiere, and then delete the preferences file as explained in “Restoring default preferences” on page 15.

3.
Start the Premiere 6.0 program.

When you start Premiere for the first time, or after deleting the preferences, the Select Initial Workspace dialog box appears so you can select an initial workspace.

4.
For this Tour, click Select Single-Track Editing to select that workspace.

5.
Now, the Load Project Settings dialog box, appears. Click Cancel. For this first step in this Tour, no settings are required. You'll return to the Load Project Settings dialog box after watching a finished version of the movie you will be creating in this Tour.

6.
Choose File > Open and double-click the zfinal.mov file in the Tour folder you copied from the Adobe Premiere Classroom in a Book CD-ROM to your hard drive. Now, the Zfinal.mov file appears in its own Clip window.
