I just loaded PP CD5 onto my Win 7 laptop. I can import movie clips into my project, but I can't drag any of those clips into the timeline. When I try to drag them, I get a hand with a "do not enter" symbol. No error messages of any kind.
I vaguely remember having this same issue when I loaded PP CS5 on my Win 7 desktop several months ago, and I thought I found something on the forums that told me how to fix it, but I can't find it now. Perhaps a change in the preferences?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Did you actually create a sequence? If not, go to File > New > Sequence, or drag one of your clips to the New Item icon at the bottom of the Project Panel. You can also click that to get the New Sequence option.
Doh! That was it. Thanks!
