I have just bought a new laptop today. and installed pp cs6 onto it,.
There seems to be a problem Ive never seen before, that I can not import anything into the timeline to edit.
There isn't even the usual video/audio tabs showing.
I am using Windows 8, its an Acer Aspire i7-3632QM 2.2ghz with turbo boost upto 3.2
Intel HD GRAPHICS 4000 with upto 1760MB dynamic video memory.
I bougt the laptop just for doing video stuff, and now I cant get anything done, can anyone help please.
Have you created a sequence in the Project panel? You will only be able to drag files to the Timeline since you have a sequence in your project. If you do have a sequence, just double click in it to open its Timeline.
Another way to create sequences automatically from footage is to drag the item from the Project panel to the New Item icon at the bottom of the same panel. This will create the sequence and import the footage into it too.
