Grin... Jim was about 2 seconds ahead of me!
Drag one of your video files in the Project Panel onto the "Create New Item" icon at the bottom of the panel and Premiere will automatically create a sequence with the correct preset for you.
You must copy the entire folder structure from either the camera internal memory or the SD card onto your hard drive, or you will likely have problems editing. Then use the media browser to import your video files.
Thank you both very much!
"Drag one of your video files in the Project Panel onto the "Create New Item" icon at the bottom of the panel and Premiere will automatically create a sequence with the correct preset for you."
Should other clips from the same project be dragged to the 'Create New Item" as well?
Again, thank you.
No, unles you want to make more sequences.
Once a sequence has been made you drag the clips to the timeline.
Ann, thank you.
So if I have footage that was shot a week apart and want to make one video from both, both need not be dragged to 'Create New Item"?
