Start projects with default bins and sequences?
on Aug 9, 2018 at 3:26:13 pm

Is there a way to start a new project with a default set of bins and sequences already setup?
For example I have a particular type of organization I use for every project. I create the following bins every project:

Graphics
Sequences
Audio
>Music
Video
>Raw
>>GH4
>>Hero5Black

I also have some sequences that I usually create by default. It would be a nice little time saver to start a new project with a template this this where these are already created. Any way to do that?

Digital Rebellion's Post Haste is good for this:

While that's interesting and good for OS folder structure, what I'm wondering is if there is a way to have Premiere Pro itself start with bins and sequences already created in the project panel.

In Post Haste you create a Premiere template that auto-generates your folder structure inside Premiere itself.

I use it all the time.

PS.

If you work with other applications for your projects, like After Effects, Motion, Photoshop, etc., you can get Post Haste to autogenerate these project templates too all in one hit.

I'd just make a project file with everything you want in it. No footage, no audio, just the bins & timelines. When you start a new project duplicate this project file, rename it, relocate it if necessary and you're off to the races.

It's not elegant, but it works!

Thanks Dave,
That's probably the way to go. That had occurred to me after I posted this, but I wasn't sure if Premiere had this ability built in, so I figured it was still worth it to ask.

Just to reiterate, that's what Post Haste will do for you automatically. You make your template once and feed it into PostHaste and that's it from then on.

And it avoids accidentally using your template file and overwriting it ... which will happen with Dave's method!

You open your template project and before doing anything rename: done.

Apparently you have need for the many capabilities of Post Haste.

If you don't, what's wrong with a free trick that takes about 20 seconds to use flawlessly?

It's quite amazing how many times different people don't want to listen to the right answer in this thread!

Advantages of Post Haste:
It's free and does everything (and more) that is being asked in a more straightforward way than any other suggestion.

Advantages of any other method being suggested:
None

I've always done what Dave is saying. Just duplicate the one folder and change the name to date/client and whatever else I need for organization, then go in and rename my PPro to what I need and open it. My folders are all there, my PPro project is already what I need for editing, and I have bins already that match my folder structure.
Easy-Peasy!

I've also used the method Dave described. It's very simple and effective. Definitely going to check out Post Haste though.

There is no right answer in this thread.

Everybody does it his or her way with or without a plugin, result is the same.

There are some people who won’t use Post Haste, even if the author writes you a $250 check every time you launch it. Give it up.
