If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you're watching this tutorial on a disk, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. You can put your files in any folder and in any hard drive location you choose. I put my files here inside the folder here on the desktop for ease of access. Let me show you what's inside there. Double-click on that. I have got assets and various chapters and as you go through the chapters in our course, then we are going to instruct you with little graphics in the screen to say open up let's say tour.prel.
That's the Premiere Elements project file. This is where you access those particular project files and there are some other associated files that Premiere Elements creates when you make a new project. You back up to the assets. The assets are divided up into the types of assets. We have got some zip-line shots, shots at a grocery store, figure-skating. I think you can see what's going on here. These guys are all mp4 files that were shot originally in HD, then converted to mp4. Then we have got some clips provided by Art Beats of some underwater shots. I am going to back to let's say some still images, and some other graphics on a green screen shot.
So this is where you find your assets and typically when you load up a project the assets are found for you by the project, but let's say to know that's where they are tucked away. If you have more than one hard drive, your best bet is to put the video assets on a fast hard drive that does not have a system software running off of it, or in case you need some help remembering where you put your assets, you might want to store your files in some place that's logical for you, like My Documents or some place that's easily recognizable, so you can track them down. If you are a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have to access the exercise files. You can follow along using your own media assets, and again, I recommend you store them in places like a high speed or hard drive or use the other recommendations that I just made.
