In this video, learn about the version of Premiere Pro used in this course and what you should know about the exercise files.
- [Instructor] Now there's a few things that you're going to want to keep in mind for the beginning part of this course. And first is that we are on the current versions of both Premiere Pro and After Effects. So simply head to the Creative Cloud app, and make sure that you're on the current version by updating both Premiere Pro and After Effects. And this is going to get you set up for both the first and second part of this Title Sequence course. Now, secondly, you have a series of exercise files included with the first part of this course, and then a second set that's going to be available for the second part of this course. Once you download these files, just keep in mind, we're really not going through a lot of hands-on training until the later part of Chapter One. When you get there, you'll see that you have some Premiere Pro files that you can access, and if you simply right-click or double-click you can open this in the current version of Premiere Pro. Premiere Pro will then open in the background, and you may have to re-connect to the source file material, because you're on a new system. In the event that you open up a project like me, and you see that none of these files have been connected to, you want to take the following steps. I'm currently in my Assembly workspace, I'm going to select all of my missing files. And clicking on the first one, I want to shift click on this one to select all of the ones in between, followed by Command click of this one. From the File menu there's an option to link media, and this is going to ask us to link all of the files that are missing. It's going to first look for the file name that's here on top, so I can see that it ends in 705.mov. I'll choose to locate this on my system, and as I scroll to the top, this is on my desktop, under the exercise file folder, under source files. I'll check here at the top seeing it's looking for 705, and I have a handy button turned on, which is called Display only exact name matches, so all that's showing to me in this view is the one file. If I select it and then press OK, Premiere Pro will see all of the other files in the relative path, and I will be connected. You're going to want to repeat that for the remaining project files in case of any of the media showing as offline. And there you have it, a few things to know before starting onto our course on Creating a Title Sequence.
