If you are a premiere member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD, you have access to the exercise files used throughout the title. To use these exercise files, simply open up the folder on your Desktop, and you'll see a folder for each chapter of the course. Inside each of these folders is a project file which some of the movies may refer to. When you first launch these movies, you maybe greeted with a dialog box that asks you where the original media is.
Now we've stored the original media along with the exercise files inside a folder named Media. Go ahead and click on the Media folder, click on Display Only Exact Name Matches, and you'll see that Avocados will be the only one that isn't grayed out. Select it and click Open. Since all the media is located in one folder, all of it will get reconnected after you select the first clip. Now if you are working on an older machine that might not have an accelerated graphics card or GPU, you may get a warning dialog.
That's okay, the projects will work equally well on machines with and without an advanced graphics card. Your rendering just may be a little bit slower. So you can just dismiss that dialog box, and don't worry, these projects will work exactly the same way, except that it may be a little bit older machines. If you are not a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. Let's get started.
