Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing project footage, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
Every project starts somewhere, and in the case of editing…a mini-documentary, that place is importing the footage into the nonlinear editor--…in this case Premiere Elements.…Keep in mind that with a common job like importing footage, there is going to be…multiple ways to do it.…Our purpose is not to go through all of those ways, because for that you can see…Adobe Premiere Elements Essential Training.…We just want to pick a method that works for us with the emphasis…on organization.…
We're starting with a project file that's basically blank, but I do want to…check the project settings, because those can be important.…The thing to notice here is that my Project Settings match the DSLR footage that…was originally shot.…This will probably be different for your project, but it'll always match the…format that you shot.…The first thing I want to do is an organizational step. I want to make a couple…of folders that will be our top level organization for the footage.…
The first one I want to call Interview. And the second I want to call B-roll.…
