Lesson 1. The Workspace > Working with the Project window

Working with the Project window

The Project window is where you import, organize, and store references to clips. You can view and add information for every clip in your project. It lists all source clips you import into a project, though you don't have to use every clip you import. You can also expand the size of the Project window.

The filenames in the Project window identify the files imported into the project. Icons next to each filename indicate the file type. Video and audio files are large, so copying each one into a project would waste significant disk space. Instead, a Premiere Pro project stores only references to the clips you import, not the clips themselves. This means that a 5 MB source clip always occupies just 5 MB on your hard disk whether you use it in one project or ten. When you edit your video program, Premiere Pro retrieves frames from the original files as needed.
