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 refers to files on a drive. When you open a project, Premiere Pro 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 Pro will have trouble finding them. Premiere Pro attempts to locate the missing clips and prompts you to confirm its choice. (Premiere Pro also attempts to find missing preview files; see Chapter 10, “Previewing a Sequence.”)

Sometimes, a project refers to a file that is not currently available, or offline. Fortunately, you can tell Premiere Pro to insert a blank placeholder, or offline clip, to stand in until you can get the file back on your drive (or online) again. Naturally, when you use an offline clip, you can't view the file it is holding a place for, but using the offline clip permits the project to remember the name of the file and recall how you used it in your program.
