This handout will walk you through the process of how to set up a project in Premiere.
In the Applications folder, open Adobe Premiere.
|Start a new project from the splash screen by clicking "Project..." under "New"|
Set your ‘Scratch Disks’.
Click ‘Scratch Disks’ in the New Project window that comes up next.
Under the ‘Scratch Disks’ tab, you need to:
Name your project.
Location should be set to YOUR PERSONAL HARD DRIVE.
Same as Project is a good option for all the other options on this page.
Once this is done, click ok.
|Create a "MEDIA" folder at the Finder level in the same folder as your the project file you just created.|
If you have media already in a file format on the computer, consolidate it by moving the files you would like to use into the MEDIA folder you just created. This will help you avoid losing your media as well.
If you have used the Canon XF105 or XF305 camera then use the Canon XF backup utility to make a backup of the Compact Flash card using this workflow.
After consolidating your files into your 'MEDIA' folder, bring them into Premiere.
‘File > Import...’ command and select the files in the 'MEDIA' folder you created.
Drag and drop those files into the project.
|Canon XF media will give you this error just ignore it and click OK|
|Now start editing.|
