If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. These files can be found on the Exercise Files tab on the main course page. Now, I've placed the downloaded Exercise folder on my desktop, so it's easier for me to access and show you where files are. You can place this Exercise folder wherever it's appropriate on your system. Now, once you open the Exercise files folder.
You'll see there's a lot of folders contained inside. Two main folders are the Media folder and the Projects folder. The Projects folder contain projects that you can launch for each of the chapters where appropriate. And the Media will refer to all the media that you will use when following along with the course. Now, to launch any of these files, you can simply select them and open them by double clicking and that will not only launch the application but that specific project.
I'm going to show you a couple of things that may occur depending on the system that you're using when you launch these projects. In some cases, you may get a dialogue box that may warn you when the project was last saved, there was an accelerated graphics card available, and if you don't have accelerated graphics card. It will inform you that it will use software and the CPU to process all your real time effects.
Let me close this project and open another project to show another situation you may encounter. Another situation you may encounter may look like this. In this case the graphics card or lack thereof matches the system where this project was created. However the project does not know where the media is located. And more likely you're going to encounter this scenario. Now, Premiere Pro allows you to reconnect the media very easily. All you need to do is click on locate.
You'll get a new dialogue box. And I want you to locate your exercise files folder that you downloaded from lynda.com. And simply press Search. Premiere Pro will search that folder, and its sub folders, and when it finds the missing clip, it will highlight it. You can select it, and say OK. Premiere will then link up all associated missing media, that is found within that folder. Now, if you don't have access to these exercise files, you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
