When using Adobe Premiere Elements 2 I organized my media with prefixes like 001, 002, 003, etc. When I imported the media into Elements 2, the application maintained that order. Then I was able to insert the bulk media into the Timeline. It really worked well.
I'm now using Premiere Elements 9 and either this application does not offer those features or I just haven't figured out how to do it.
Does all of my organization have to take place in the Organizer or is there a way for Organizer to organize my media by the file prefix? And can I insert mulitple still images or do they have to be inserted into the Timeline one-by-one?
When you import your video into your project in version 9, it will appear in the Premiere Elements Project panel under the Organize tab.
In the Project panel you can set your clips to display in a number of different orders, based in which column header you click, including alpha-numeric.
