Chapter 3. Managing Footage > Organizing Footage in Folders

Organizing Footage in Folders

As you learned in Chapter 2, footage can be imported into the Project window as items contained in a folder. Of course, you can also create your own folders to organize items in the project. Folders look and work much like they do on the desktop (particularly on the Mac). However, unlike on the desktop or in some programs, the folder can't open in its own window.

To create a folder in the Project window:

1.
In the Project window, do one of the following:

  • Choose File > New > New Folder.

  • Click the folder icon at the bottom of a project window (Figure 3.27).

    Figure 3.27. Clicking the New Folder button at the bottom of the Project window is the easiest way to create a new folder.


An untitled folder appears in the Project window.

2.
Press Return (Mac) or Enter (Windows) to highlight the name of the folder (Figure 3.28).

3.
Type a name for the custom heading (Figure 3.29).

Figure 3.29. …and type a new name. Press Return (Mac) or Enter (Windows) to apply the name.


4.
Press Return (Mac) or Enter (Windows) to apply the name to the folder.

The folder is sorted with other items, according to the currently selected column heading.
