Did you look under the kitchen sink? If it is not there either, look here and read carefully: Some suggestions
Answer the 16 questions at the end of the Wiki link if you haven't found the solution by going through all the steps described.
Which Bin did you have active in the Project Panel, when you Imported the AV file? That is where it should be. Open ALL Bins, and look inside. It should be there. You can move it to another Bin, if you are not satisfied with that location.
Also, let this file Conform completely, before you do anything in PrPro. There is a little blue progress bar at the lower-right of the GUI. This is important.
Use the Media Browser to get your clips into Premiere.
What are "bins"?
And I exited some of the seperate "docks" ...
and now I can't re-create them? Such as, I had a dock for effects on the bottom left cornor, I exited the box and now I can't recreate it...
This leads me to believe that I might of accidently exited my video box, which would be the reason of why I can't see my imported videos.
I tried exiting out and creating a new project, but the boxes won't come back up, what do I do?
And for a present, I'm "HDV" right? Not "DV"
For another present, start reading the help file, the manual from front to cover, watch tutorials and get acquainted with the proper terminology. And get a decent education in NLE. One should not start using a program like PR without a basic knowledge and education. Otherwise WMM, Magix or PE are a better way to start.
Will do, in the meanwhile, can you answer my question?
-- Hold up, I think I figured it out.
-- Buwahawhaw, I'm getting the hang of it.
That would be great, because otherwise I would have to repeat my request for some basic information, like do you use:
1. AMD, Intel, IBM, SUN or other
2. Leopard or OSX, Linux, Windows and which version
3. NAS, SAN or DAS
4. Source material
5. User privileges
6. Other hardware
7. Other software
I bought PP because I'm flexibile with adapting in par of technology.
Don't worry about my expenses. o.o
