In Premiere Pro CS5 Essential Training, author Chad Perkins shows not only how to edit video with Premiere Pro, but he also explains how to use video to tell compelling stories. This course covers the Premiere Pro workflow from a high level, providing a background on how projects go from start to finish before diving into basic clip adjustments, such as color correcting scenes for more dramatic impact, applying transitions effectively, and slowing down and speeding up clip playback. The course includes creative techniques, such as making titles and removing a green screen background from a shot. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you are a premium member of the lynda .com Online Training Library or if you are watching on a disc, then you'll have access to these Exercise Files. And I want to show you in this movie how I've arranged them so you know how they work. Basically, the projects for the different chapters will be in its corresponding chapter. So when you're watching the movies in Chapter 5, you'll find the projects for Chapter 5 in the Chapter 5 folder of the Exercise Files. Now, it's important that you keep all these folders together with the Media folder, because the Media folder contains the videos and stills and graphics and things like that that are linked to in these projects.
So we need to maintain their relative space or else we'll break the link and our projects won't work. Now, if you find when you open a Premiere project, if you get a warning about how there is media that is offline or it can't find certain media clips, then what you could do is jump ahead to Chapter 6. There is a movie about reconnecting offline media. Just go ahead and watch that and you should get all the information you need about how to fix that problem. Now, unless specifically mentioned in the training, most of the time all you'll have to do is just open up the project in the chapter folder and you won't have to worry about the media folder.
Now, if you're a monthly or annual subscriber to the lynda.com Online Training Library, then you won't have access to these files, but of course, you can just follow along and watch the training, or if you have other assets of your own that you'd like to follow along with, then feel free to use those as well.
