Everyone loves keyboard shortcuts. Let's see a few that are particularly useful in the import process. Cmd+I is the shortcut for Import, but just remember, that brings up this traditional import dialog, where you search for what you want and bring it into the project. That's totally different then Import from Media Browser. That's when you're down in the Media Browser, and you hit option Cmd+I, and it brings in whatever's selected in the browser, into the project.
You see I just brought in the City 1 AIFF by using the keyboard shortcut. Another shortcut I like is Cmd+/ for New Bin, and keep in mind if you have a bin selected already, your new bin will happen inside the existing bin. There's our new bin, and it comes in ready to be named, because a bin called Bin Three is not nearly as good as something that's informative. Finally I'd like to be able to access my important windows, using shortcuts if I need to.
The Meta Logging Work Space can be accessed with option shift seven. We're already on it. It also reveals two of the important windows, but in case you're somewhere else and you need to see the project panel, that's just shift+1. The Media Browser panel is quickly accessed with a shift+8. There's some helpful keyboard shortcuts for the Import Phase of organizing your footage.
