The first step when you start cutting together any video is bringing your media into your project. Now in this case I've already created the project and created a timeline. Now, if you're just following along and watching that's okay. If you're working with your own media you'll learn how to do all of these tasks in the following chapters as we really dig in deep. So, to import media, go ahead and click on the panel that says Media Browser and we're going to dig down and find the footage that you downloaded with the project files.
Now, I've put all the media on the desktop so, I have to dig down and find that. In this drop down window I can simply go to my home directory, and then find my desktop, there's the folder that says exercise files, the media, and then you'll see a folder called Chapter 1 Media. If I step into this folder, there's my graphics, music, and video. Now I've already organized them, and the nice thing about this I can simply select all of them by drawing a box around them, right clicking and say import. Now, there's a lot of different ways that you're going to be bringing media in whether it's already on your computer or it could be on some sort of a video card or even on tape.
And again we'll explore that later on. If you step over back into the Project pane, you'll see that all of these folders have been imported and if I click on the little triangles I can see the contents and that's what we'll be working with.
