Join Jeff Sengstack for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the exercise files, part of Learning Encore CS6.
If you are a lynda.com Premium Member, you have access to the exercise files that come with this Up and Running course. So what you need to do is download that zip file and then unzip it, and when you do that, you should have a folder structure that looks like this. Exercise Files would be the top folder, then you've got five folders inside of it like this and then five files like that. That's how your Exercise Files folder should look, just to make sure. And inside there you are going to have these five folders--one of which will be Edited Videos--looks like these files here. That has got Encore Projects. These are all the project folders that are associated with all the project files, and these guys need to be in the same folder. Every project like this has an associated folder and like that.
And we have some other assets here as well, plus some individual files. So just make sure that everything lines up like this, so that means that when you open up these Encore Projects that we have provided, it will easily find all the assets here. And then I suggest you take the Exercise Files folder and put it some place readily accessible. I have put it here on my Desktop just to make it easier for me to show you these files, but I suggest you put at some place that you can get to easily, too, to help you as you go through this course.
