Organizing Your Content in Adobe Premiere Elements 12

Chapter Description

Fast and efficient movie production requires organization before and during the edit. When you’re working with content from multiple sources and dates, Adobe Organizer is a very powerful tool for categorizing content and quickly finding video, audio clips, and pictures to use in your projects.

Note: This excerpt does not include the lesson files. The lesson files are available with purchase of the book.

Getting started

Before you start working with the footage, let’s review a final version of the movie you’ll be creating. Make sure that you have correctly copied the Lesson04 folder from your Account page onto your computer’s hard drive. See “Copying the Classroom in a Book files” in the Getting Started section at the beginning of this book.

  1. Launch Adobe Premiere Elements. If it is already open, choose Help > Welcome Screen in the Adobe Premiere Elements main menu to return to the Welcome screen.
  2. In the Welcome screen, click Video Editor, select Existing Project, and click the Open icon.
  3. In the Open Project dialog box, navigate to the Lesson04 folder you copied to your hard drive. Within that folder, select Lesson04_Start_Win.prel (Windows) or Lesson04_Start_Mac.prel (Mac OS), and then click Open. If a dialog box appears asking for the location of rendered files, click the Skip Previews button.

    Your project file opens.

  4. Choose Window > Restore Workspace to ensure that you start the lesson with the default panel layout.
