Understanding the Project Panel

When starting a new project in Premiere Pro, it’s very important to know what you’re looking at and where your tools are in the project panel.  Having a good sense for where things are and becoming familiar with the panel will help move your post production workflow along smoothly.  In this course Jason Osder will get you set up with the project panel and explore it in detail.

Organization Inside Adobe Premiere Pro: Understanding the Project Panel

To learn more, Jason Osder has created an exciting course called Premiere Pro Guru: Organizing Assets with Lynda.com


Organization is key to a successful post-production workflow. And you will feel good knowing your footage is organized and logged properly. This course picks up where the end of your shoot leaves off and before editing begins—when you need to import, organize, and log your footage. Jason Osder shows how to import all different types of assets, from stills to soundtracks, and how to sort and annotate your footage in Adobe Premiere Pro. Plus, learn a few tricks involving Bridge and Prelude (like batch renaming) that will cut your logging time in half. He'll walk you through the critical steps of metalogging and organizing your footage even before any editing takes place.

Topics in this course include:

  • Using the Media Browser and Metalogging workspace
  • Importing from a drive
  • Importing bins with a CSV file
  • Batch renaming in Bridge
  • Logging and pre-editing footage
  • Using clip makers
  • Working with metadata
