Workshop 3: Load the First Project and Become Familiar with the Navigational Controls and Window Arrangement

Learning to navigate easily and efficiently with the default set of windows should be the first task you really feel comfortable with. You'll use these windows so much that mastering the navigation techniques becomes mandatory. As you edit the movie, you'll find lots of ways to ease your workflow as soon as you understand workspaces you can create. In this workshop, you'll open and save the project files as well.

Load the Project's Files

The first thing to do is load all the DVD's project and media files onto your computer. They are located in two folders—Project Files and Media Files. If your computer has only one hard drive, click each folder one at a time from the DVD, and unstuff (decompress) them to your hard drive in a place that makes sense to you. If you have more than one drive, click the Project Files folder and drag it to your startup disk, and drag the Media Files folder to your second disk, which usually should be reserved for holding media files only.
