Lesson 5. Adding Audio > Importing and organizing clips

Importing and organizing clips

Now you're ready to import source files to the Project window. To keep things organized, you'll create a separate bin for sound files, and then move the audio files into the sounds bin.

To import the video and audio clips you will need for this lesson, choose File > Import > File, and then open the 05Lesson folder you copied or installed on your hard drive, from the Adobe Premiere 6.0 Classroom in a Book CD-ROM disk. Hold down the Control key (Windows) or the Shift key (Mac OS), and then select the Danger.aif, Door.mov, Feet1.mov, Feet2.mov, and Hall1.mov, Hall2.mov, Horror.aif, Man.mov, Shadow.aif, Suspense.aif, Woman1.mov, and Woman 2.mov files (but not the Final folder). Now click Open.

The video and audio files are added to the Project window in the Bin 1 folder.

If necessary, drag the Resize Bin Area button located at the bottom of the Project window until the Bin area is the size you want. If necessary, rearrange windows and palettes so they don't overlap, by choosing Window > Workspace > Single-Track Editing.

Now you'll create a bin for the sound files.

With the Project window active, choose File > New > Bin or click the New Bin button () in the Project window. Type Sounds for the Bin Name and click OK.

Click the Bin 1 icon in the Project window to view the contents of Bin 1.

In the Project window, hold down the Control key (Windows) or Command key (Mac OS), and click the Danger.aif, Horror.aif, Shadow.aif, and Suspense.aif icons to select them.

Then drag the icons to the Sounds Bin folder. You will see the list of files displayed in the Project window, in List View, by default.

Click the Sounds Bin in the Project window.

To make the clips in the Sounds Bin easier to identify, let's change the view for the window.

Choose Window > Window Options > Project Window Options, select Thumbnail View from the menu at the top of the dialog box, and then click OK or click the Thumbnail View button () at the bottom of the Project window.

Finally, you'll save and name the project.

Choose File > Save, type Mystery.ppj for the name, and select 05Lesson folder for the location. Then click Save.

In Windows, the default file extension for Premiere projects, ppj, is added to your filename automatically. In Mac OS, type the extension as part of the filename.
