Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the exercise files, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Blending Mode Secrets.
If your lynda.com membership includes it, I've put together a collection of exercise files. Now with high definition video, it's going to take a while to pull these files down. So make sure you start the download early, or perhaps even before you dig in to the rest of this class. This will help you get the most out of the course, and really try out some of the techniques. Inside of this folder is going to be a bunch of different things. There's a lot of different footage that I pulled from client projects, as well as some of my personal collection, and some overlays and textures. You're allowed to keep the overlay layers and the texture layers, they're my personal ones, and I'm happy to let you use those in some of your own projects.
But all of the core footage, the stuff you'll find on video track one. Leave that alone, this footage belongs to clients and other paid projects that I've worked on. I want this course to be realistic but I can't give you the rights to use that stuff. Hope you enjoy this course feel free to get hands on and if you don't have the files, just pull open one of your own project and perhaps a few photos that you could play with and you'll see how to get some great results
