Video: Using the exercise files

If you're a premium member of the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching this training series on a disc then you have access to the exercise files. The exercise files for this title are arranged with one folder for each chapter used throughout the title. In the early chapters of the title you'll find a variety of documents that we will be calling out in the movies or that'll be a screen overlay such as the one that you see now indicating the specific file that we're using.

Using the exercise files

If you're a premium member of the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching this training series on a disc then you have access to the exercise files. The exercise files for this title are arranged with one folder for each chapter used throughout the title. In the early chapters of the title you'll find a variety of documents that we will be calling out in the movies or that'll be a screen overlay such as the one that you see now indicating the specific file that we're using.

In the later chapters there will be a project folder for most of the individual movies. All of the files that you'll need to complete the project for that movie will be contained inside of that folder. You have a variety of documents in those folders. First of all, you'll see a file that's got the .camrec file extension. These are the actual movie files that we'll be editing and working with, but you won't ever have to open those files. The file that you want to open is the CAMPROJ file. This is the file that will have all of the specific edits and materials that will be working with through out that particular movie.

For many of the movies I've included a CAMPROJ file that has the word "END" in it. This indicates the ending state for that particular project file. So you can see what my results were at the end. Finally, some of the folders will have additional documents that we will be using throughout the training. If you don't have access to the exercise files, feel free to just create your own files as we go along.
