Lesson 3. Basic Editing > Importing clips

Importing clips

Now you'll add files to the Project window.

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

  • In Windows, choose File > Import > File and open the 03Lesson 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 03Lesson folder, select Field.mov, and then click Import. Do the same for the remaining files, but do not import the Final folder. Then click Done.

The video files are added to the Project window.

To make your clips a little easier to see in the Timeline, you'll change the view somewhat.

Click the title bar of the Timeline window to make it active. Then choose Window > Timeline Window Options. Select the medium icon size on the left and click OK.

Click the arrow next to the Video 1A track to collapse it.

Now you'll save and name the project.

Choose File > Save, type Dressage. ppj for the name, and 04Lesson folder for the location. 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.


Each step in this lesson that directs you to make an edit includes the exact timecode used in the final movie. We recommend you locate the general area described in the step, then fine-tune the edit point by going to the timecode given. Using the timecode enables you to check your results against the figures in the procedure.
