If you are a member of the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I've already downloaded my exercise files and they are up here on my Desktop. You can see that the way these are organized is chapter-based folders that have Premiere Pro project files, and then a Media folder that has all of the different types of media that will be used in the exercise files. It's also important that you know how to re- link media in Adobe Premiere Pro, so I want to demonstrate that quickly.
You will see when you open most of these project files, you get a message that the media is missing and you will need to manually re-link it, but this isn't difficult. Just navigate to that Media folder inside exercise files, check Display Only Exact Name Matches. Premiere Pro uses the filename to create a match, and if you check this, then it will just light up for you. If I look in b-roll, I see exactly the footage that's being looked for and I choose to open it.
You may have to repeat this part of the process once or twice for files that are in different directories; b-roll, interview, and et cetera. I recommend that you use these exercise files extensively with this course. Before we get started, I have a few more notes about how to make the most of the exercise files for your learning experience.
