Join Luisa Winters for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Markers.
- If you are a premium member you have access to the exercise files that I used in this title. Please, go ahead and download them, and if needed, unzip them. You will have then a folder named Premiere Pro Guru - Markers. You can put this folder wherever you need in your system, but I will place mine on the desktop. If you open the folder you will notice that there we have a Premiere Pro project file, and then there are folders that contain assets.
You will use this Premiere Pro project and these files throughout this title. The Premiere Pro project references this media. Please keep in mind that these files are not original media. These files are highly compressed so that your download times are short. Let's go ahead and open that Premiere Pro project. It is right here, and it's called Markers. All you have to do is double click it. You may see a dialogue telling you about the Mercury Playback Engine.
If you do, don't worry about it. That has to do with the project settings, so let's go ahead and check that. It's under File, Project Settings, General, and I made the project with the Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration on CUDA. So, if you don't have a CUDA-capable card, you won't be able to do it this way and you will get a message stating that. But don't worry, you can still follow along without any issues.
Let's go ahead and look at the Project panel. I'm going to go ahead and put the mouse on top of the panel, and I'm going to press the ` key to maximize it. In here you can clearly see that we have two bins, one for media and one for sequences. Let's go ahead and expand the Sequences one first. Now, let's go ahead and open Chapter 1. You will see that we have sequences named Sequences 1.2, 1.3, and so forth. What that means is that this sequence named Sequence 1.2 belongs to chapter one, movie two.
To open it all you have to do is double click it. Now let's take a look at the Media bin. In here we have Multicamera. We have four cameras and an audio track, we have music, we have one piece of music here, and then we have video clips. We have several. We have from Bavaro, from Macau, which is in the Dominican Republic, and we have Ocean City, which is in Maryland. So, very easy to follow Of course, if you do not have access to the exercise files, you can still follow along using your own media.
