- [Instructor] If you are a premium member of the Lynda.com online training library, then you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files are contained in a folder, and there is one project folder for each movie. Inside each folder you will find the code that we use for that movie, and any other files associated with that movie that you see me demonstrating. If you're a monthly subscriber or an annual subscriber to Lynda.com, then you don't have access to these exercise files, but you can follow along with me anyway.
You can transcribe what you see me doing on the screen. Alright, let's get started.
