If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. In this case, we've downloaded our files to the desktop. If I double-click on this, you can see what's inside the Exercise Files folder. There are three folders, whose contents we need to put into three different locations. First of all, copy to Avid projects: Inside here are the Avid projects we're going to be using.
I'm going to select them, I'm going to right-click and copy them, and then I'm going to come to My Documents. And in My Documents, there's an Avid Projects folder. Inside there is where I'm going to paste these. If I'm using a Mac, I'd want to place these in the Avid Projects folder, inside of your Documents folder. Next, here in the Exercise Files, we've got Copy to Desktop. So if I go in here, I want to select this, copy this, and then go to my desktop and paste.
And of course, that would be the same if you're on a Mac or a PC. Finally, back in Exercise Files, we have a third folder called Copy to Media Drive. If I go inside there, I have a folder called Avid Media Files. I am going to take this, I'm going to copy it, and I'm going to place it, in this particular case, on the root of my Media drive.
Now if you guys don't have a media drive, then it's perfectly permissible for this course to put them on the root of your C Drive, if you're on a PC, or if you're on a Mac, on the root of your Macintosh hard disk. Okay, now that I've moved the contents of this folder to my Avid Projects folder, and I've moved the contents of this folder to the desktop, and the contents of this folder to the root of my Media Drive, or the primary drive on my system, I can go ahead and take the exercise files, cut them, place them somewhere as a backup.
After I've done that, the only thing remaining on my desktop should be this folder here, MC getting started resources. If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can follow along from scratch, or with your own assets. Let's get started.
