How to keep project nice and clean. (probably easy)
on Aug 7, 2017 at 8:34:01 am

I edit realityshows, and I am now working on a series with 30 episodes, collaborating with other editors.

My workflow is to edit an episode, open a previously edited episode in the mediabrowser and copy some of the music/graphics etc from the timeline, into my new project. What happens is that all the files I copy end up in the root of the project which makes the projectwindow extremely cluttered with alot of files.

Is there any way to set a folder as default import folder, so that all files copied from other timelines go there? (I know I could probably import timelines but that is not optimal the way I work now)

Create a bin, open it, then import your stuff. I myself had been doing a hackneyed version of that but my latest project, I created sound, images, green screen etc. folders in the folder holding my assets, and the same in Project window. Then when I imported my sound effects I opened that folder in Media Browser, opened the sound effects bin in the Project window, and imported, etc.

So in your case just create a bin called timelines, open it, and then import your timelines.

Thanks for the reply, but it is not quite what I am looking for. I want to be able to define a folder all my assets end up in when I copy something from a timeline using the mediabrowers.

I work with big projects, and I can't use the import function, cause that will make the project very very big.

The next update of Premiere will address this. BOY was I happy to see that. Next version you can open multiple projects at the same time..and even LOCK them like Avid bins in a shared environment. And when you copy over a sequence, you won't get media populating the project, just the sequence.

Thats fantastic. Just a couple of more fixes and it will be just as good as FCP7.0 hehe.

Where can I read about the next version of Premiere??

Have Adobe released any more info?

[Shane Ross] "The next update of Premiere will address this."

Do you know when we will get the next update? There are still some bugs in Premiere Pro CC.

I believe three weeks, from last speaking with Adobe Support.

The NAB 2017 update was a let down. I hope we get something really good this time around.
