Lesson 4. Basic Editing > Importing files into the Media window

Importing files into the Media window

In some ways, Premiere Elements creates a rough cut when you import video from your DV camera. Clips are automatically assembled in the Timeline window from beginning to end. However, there may be times when you would like to import footage from one project into another. For example, you may be making a compilation tape of a child's first year and would like to use different clips from different projects. Or perhaps you have two tapes of footage from the same event. In this case you would need to add these additional clips to your current project.

1.
In the Task bar, click the Add Media button () and navigate to the Tape_2 folder inside your lesson 04 folder. Ctrl-click the files Tape_2 01.avi and Tape_2 02.avi and click Open to import them into your Media folder.

2.
Although Premiere Elements automatically places clips into the timeline when importing DV footage from a camcorder, clips imported into the media window will need to be manually placed into the timeline.

You can also import clips by using the shortcut Ctrl + I to open the Add Media window.
