Chapter 2. Starting a Project

Chapter 2. Starting a Project

When you’re editing with Premiere Elements, you’re creating a detailed set of instructions called a project (Figure 2.1). Each project can contain a single edited sequence, and you can have only one project open at a time. A project contains all your editing decisions: the arrangement of the video and audio, transitions, audio levels, titles, and effects. But although your project lists all the video and audio clips in your edited program, it doesn’t actually contain them.

Figure 2.1. A project file is a detailed set of instructions that refers to—but doesn’t contain—source files. Your hard drive must contain both the project (a small file) and the source files to which it refers (larger files).
