Lesson 4. Adding Transitions > Importing clips

Importing clips

Now you're ready to import the source files for your project.

1.
Import files in one of the following ways, depending on your system:

  • In Windows, Choose File > Import > File and open the 04Lesson 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. Then click Open.

  • In Mac OS, choose File > Import > Multiple, open the 04Lesson folder, select Earth.mov, and then click Import. Do the same for the Eye.mov, Solar1.mov, and Solar2.mov. Then click Done.

    The video files are added to the Project window.



Tip

To open the Import dialog box quickly, double-click in an empty area of the Project window.

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

2.
Choose Window > Project Window Options, select Thumbnail View from the menu at the top of the dialog box, and then click OK.

Now you'll save and name the project.

3.
Choose File > Save, type Dream.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.
