Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating and annotating project footage, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.

This will apply to both Interviews and B-roll, and then we'll look at both…in detail.…I'm going to open up my interview just by way of example.…The first important thing is to use time code.…You can see it right here, and when I play you'll see it move forward.…(Female speaker: The way I started the last volume...)…Time code is important because no matter where you're moving your clip--…especially on a long one--time code is the way to identify a specific part of that clip.…
Whether you're taking your notes in an Excel document or on a Notebook, always…
