Chapter 2. Starting a Project > Locating Missing and Offline Files

Locating Missing and Offline Files

As you learned at the beginning of this chapter, a project is simply a set of instructions that refer to files on a drive. When you open a project, Premiere looks for the files to which the project refers. If the source files have been moved, deleted, or renamed since the project was last saved, Premiere may have trouble finding them. Premiere attempts to locate the missing clips and prompts you to confirm its choice. (Premiere also attempts to find missing preview files; see Chapter 8.)

Sometimes, the project refers to a file that is not currently available, also known as offline. Fortunately, you can tell Premiere to insert a blank placeholder, or offline clip, to stand in for the clip. Although an offline file can't allow you to view the file it replaces, it permits the project to remember the name of the file and recall how you used it in your program.
