Lesson 3. Basic Editing > Getting started

Getting started

For this lesson, you'll create a new project and then import the video clips. Make sure you know the location of the files used in this lesson. Insert the Adobe Premiere 6.0 Classroom in a Book CD-ROM disk if necessary. For help, see “Copying the Classroom in a Book files” on page 14 of this book.

1.
Launch the Premiere 6.0 software.

2.
In the Load Project Settings dialog box, choose Multimedia or Multimedia Quicktime (depending on your operating system), and click OK.

3.
After you click OK, you will see the Single-Track Editing mode workspace and its three main windows (the Project window, the Monitor window, and the Timeline window) and the default palettes.

4.
From the Premiere title bar at the top of your screen, choose Edit > Preferences > General & Still Image and deselect Open Movies in Clip Window if it is selected.

5.
Before importing files, you should close the palettes that you don't need right now. Click the close box in the upper right corner of the Transitions/Video/Audio palette window and the Navigator/Info/History palette window, or press the Tab key to close them together.
