Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Staying organized on your media drives, part of EPK Editing Workflows 01: Ingest to Assembly Edit.
- I just wanted to take a moment before we go any…further to mention the importance of staying…organized on your storage drives.…Now, as far as Premiere Pro is concerned, in fact…you know, as far as every application in Creative Suite…is concerned to do a video it doesn't matter…what kind of storage you are using.…Ultimately, it's file path and filename.…That means where is it and what's it called.…But in terms of you, as a human being, as a user…interacting with your media, it makes a huge…difference if you take a few extra seconds to…just setup your media folders in a…way that you can identify later.…
Just remember to be able to find things when…you've forgotten where everything is.…And this a very simple example,…you've got these files as well.…I've got a time lapse folder that's got a couple of time…lapse pieces of media that were taken during the shoot.…I've got interview contents all divided up into names.…Now you probably won't have things in names in this way,…but it's good to have a folder for your original media.…
Stay tuned for future courses in the series, which will cover the other steps in the workflow, all the way up to the finished music video.
