In April 2020, Adobe dropped an update to its 2020 version of Adobe Creative Cloud. As part of that update, they introduced a new function in Premiere that you can take advantage of. This is called Productions. In this video, Luisa Winters discusses how to use the exercise files as you watch this course.
- If you have access to the exercise files that I used in this title, please go ahead and download them. After you do so, if needed, unzip them. You will have then a folder named Productions in Premiere Pro. You can put this folder whatever you need to in your system, but I will place mine on the desktop. If you open the folder, let's go ahead and do that, you will notice that there are some other folders in here, including the actual Productions folder that has the same name. You will also see folders that relate to the Premiere Pro project, folders like Audio Previews, Auto Save, Captured Audio, et cetera. You will also see the folders that contain the media that are referenced by the projects. You will use this Premiere Pro production throughout this title. All the assets that we will use are included in here. The Premiere Pro projects reference this media, so all you need to do is follow along. Please keep in mind that these files are not original media. These files are highly compressed so that your download times are short. Also note that these files are included for practice only. Please don't use them in your productions. If you need to open a project or sequence, I will mention it by name and number, and you can go to the particular folder and project. So if I ask you to open the project named All Video Clips, I will be specific and say, "Go to the folder named 01 Video Clips "and double click on the project named All Video Clips." I will mention it by name. The same goes for the sequence. If after opening a project, we need to open a specific sequence, I will mention it by name. I would say something like, "Expand the folder named 03 Working Project "and then double click the project named Branding. "Then in the Project panel, "double click the sequence named Logo 1," and it would open in the timeline. The project in a production environment in Premiere are acting like bins.
