Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of EPK Editing: 5 Titles Graphics and Output.
If you are a premium member of lynda.com you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. And when you download those files, this is what you'll see, an exercise files folder. And if you open it up you'll find a number of chapter folders that relate to the chapters in this course. Each one contains either a Premiere Pro project or in the case of this course you might find some PSD files. And you'll notice that very often I've included a complete version.
You don't need those complete versions of the project files, they're just there for a reference so you can compare the work that I've done with the work that you do. And, if I go back you'll see we also have a media directory, and that contains some artifacts projects that were used earlier on in the edit. We've got some behind the scenes footage from this video. We've got a file that I created in After Effects to use in the finished piece and we've got a number of other items that are incorporated in our sequence.
If in doubt, take a look at the top of my screen and you'll see which file I'm working on. If you are a monthly member or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. Let's get started.
