Review answers

  1. Open the Project panel menu, and choose Metadata Display. Select the check box for any column 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 clips that don’t match what you typed and reveals those that do.

  3. There are several ways to create a new bin: by clicking the New Bin button at the bottom of the Project panel, by choosing File > New > Bin, by right-clicking a blank area in the Project panel and choosing New Bin, or by pressing Ctrl+B (Windows) or Command+B (macOS). 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.
