The very first step before you key your green-screen footage is to import it into a project. What is the best way to bring in your green-screen media when you want to import it into Adobe Premiere Pro? In this movie, join Richard Harrington as he imports green-screen footage into Premiere Pro with the Media Browser.
- The first step to keying…is actually bringing the footage into a project.…And even if you intend to end up in After Effects,…I find that the media browser workflow…in Premiere Pro is better.…It makes it really easy to import footage…from a wide variety of cameras.…Let's tackle this import process.…To start, mouse over your project panel…and select the media browser.…To make this a bit bigger,…I'll press the accent grave key…which maximizes the window under my cursor…and now we can navigate to footage.…
Let's go ahead and just navigate here…to the downloaded files.…I've placed them on my desktop,…but you might have stored them in a different location…and what you can actually do as well…is right click on a folder…and add that to favorites.…Now it's going to be stored here as a shortcut,…making it easy to jump back.…Let's go into folder two here for a moment…and you'll see that we have a variety of options.…I'll start by selecting two simple clips…and right clicking and choose import.…
This will bring them into the project.…
