Lesson 5. Adding Audio > Importing and organizing clips

Importing and organizing clips

Now you're ready to import source files. To keep things organized, you'll create a bin for sound files, and then move those files into the sound bin.

Import files in one of the following ways, depending on your system:

  • In Mac OS, choose File > Import > Multiple, open the 05Lesson folder, select Danger.aif, and thenclick Import. Do the same for the remaining files, but do not import the Final folder. Then clickDone.

  • In Windows, Choose File > Import > File and open the 05Lesson folder. Select all the files (but not the Final folder) by selecting the first file, holding down the Shift key, and then selecting the last file. Click Open.

The video and sound files are added to the Project window.

Bins are containers you can create for storing and organizing your clip files. You'll create a bin for the sound files.

Click the Project window to make it active. Then choose Project > Create > Bin, type Sounds, and click OK.

In the Project window, hold down the Control key (Windows) or Shift key (Mac OS) and click the Sounds bin icon (to deselect it), and click the Danger.aif, Horror.aif, Shadow.aif, and Suspense.aif icons to select them. Then drag the icons to the Sounds bin icon.

To make the clips in the Project window easier to identify, let's change the view for the window.

Choose Window > Project Window Options, select Thumbnail View from the menu at the top of the dialog box, and then click OK.

Finally, you'll save and name the project.

Choose File > Save, type Mystery.ppj for the name. Then click Save.

In Windows, the default file extension for Premiere projects, ppj, is added to your filename automatically. In Mac OS, type the extension as part of the filename.
