Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Assembly, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Customizing Workspaces.
We're going through each of the default workspaces to see their strengths and weaknesses and what they're all about. After Metalogging, the next one that I want to look at, in the order of the editing process is the Assembly workspace. This is a new default workspace in Creative Cloud, and it's based on a part of the editing process that's very important, which is assembling your timeline. This is the first part of rough cutting where the goal is to get all of the pieces of media you're going to use out on the timeline in the roughest of all assemblies, just literally chunking things out.
So, we can see that we have a small timeline, a big project panel and then we have source and program viewers stacked together. So I can move quickly but without using much real estate between what I'm assembling down here and what I might be looking at in terms of a clip. As I go through opening things. I see them in the source viewer, and then if I bring them down onto the timeline, I can look at the results of that timeline in the program viewer.
This new assembly workspace is really useful for that quick and dirty assembly of clips to begin with. I think it makes a lot out of limited real estate. If I had a larger monitor or dual monitors, I think I would separate the program from the source and have even more room to look and work with things. But, if I was working on a laptop and just making a quick edit, the assembly workspace works really well for that.
