Lesson 3. Basic Editing > Importing clips

Importing clips

Now you'll add files to the Project window.

1.
To import the movie clips you will need, choose File > Import > File, and then open the 03Lesson folder you copied or installed from the Premiere Application CD-ROM disk. Hold down the Control key (Windows) or the Command or Shift key (Mac OS), and then select the Field.mov, Finish.mov, Logo.mov, Ride.mov, and Trot.mov files (but not the Final folder). Now click Open.

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

2.
If necessary, rearrange windows and palettes so they don't overlap, by choosing Window > Workspace > Single-Track Editing.

To make your clips a little easier to see, you'll change the view somewhat.

3.
Click the title bar of the Timeline window to make it active. Then, choose Window > Window Options > Timeline Window Options. Select the medium Icon Size (the second button on the left) and click OK.

4.
In the Timeline window, click the Time Zoom Level menu in the lower left, and choose 2 Seconds.

Now, you'll save and name the project.

5.
From the title bar at the top of your screen, choose File > Save, type Dressage.ppj for the filename, and choose the 03Lesson folder for the location. Click Save.
