Organizing Media in Adobe Premiere Pro CC (2015 release)

Chapter Description

Once you have some video and sound assets in your project, you’ll begin looking through your footage and adding clips to a sequence. Before you do, it’s well worth spending a little time organizing the assets you have. Maxim Jago shows you how in this excerpt from Adobe Premiere Pro CC Classroom in a Book (2015 release).

Review answers

  1. Click the panel menu for the Project panel and choose Metadata Display. Select the check box for any heading you want to appear.
  2. Click the Filter Bin Content box and start typing the name of the clip you are looking for. Premiere Pro hides any clips that don’t match and displays those that do.
  3. You have several options: Click the New Bin button at the bottom of the Project panel, go to the File menu and choose New > Bin, right-click a blank area in the Project panel and choose New Bin, or press Control+B (Windows) or Command+B (Mac OS). You can also drag and drop clips onto the New Bin button on the Project panel.
  4. No. You can duplicate, rename, or delete clips in your Project panel, and nothing will happen to your original media files.
  5. The spacebar plays and stops. J, K, and L can be used like a shuttle controller to play backward and forward, and the arrow keys can be used to move one frame backward or one frame forward.
  6. In the Project panel, right-click the clip you want to change and choose Modify > Audio Channels. Choose the correct option (usually by selecting a preset) and click OK.
