Chapter 4. Managing Clips > Working with the Project Window

Working with the Project Window

The Project window is the receptacle for all the clips you intend to use. So you can work efficiently, it's vital that the clips be organized, easy to find, and easy to evaluate. Premiere Pro's Project window helps you achieve these goals (Figure 4.1).

Figure 4.1. The Project window helps you organize, find, and evaluate your clips.


To help you change the view options or access common commands quickly, several buttons are conveniently located at the bottom of the Project window. As in all the primary windows, you can also access commands associated with the window from an integrated menu named after the window—in this case, the Project window menu. (Some like to call these types of menus fly-out or wingtip menus.)

The preview area displays vital information about selected bins, sequences, and clips, as well as a sample image. You can play movie files in the preview area. In addition, you can choose any frame of a movie clip to represent the clip in the Project window views.

As its name suggests, the Project window is fundamental; you can close other windows, but closing the Project window closes the project and returns you to the welcome screen.
