Step 2: Create a Project to Suit the Output
Creating a project is easy. You just open Premiere, select from one of the presets, and then click OK. No problem. But what if a Blu-Ray DVD is your intended output or you need to mix this photomontage with a project containing video? Is it wide screen, is it NTSC or PAL, is it 24P, or do you want your final output to be sent to a mobile device? Deciding now what your final output will be is a crucial decision. Don’t treat it lightly.
Task: To create a new project, do the following:
- Launch Premiere CS3.
- Once the program has finished loading, you will be presented with a Welcome screen. Choose New Project from the three options (see Figure 3).
- Now—carefully—choose which project format you want to use from the Load Preset list, bearing in mind all that I’ve just said about this.
- With the preset highlighted, browse to your media drive and open the folder called Photomontage – Peachpit – Article1.
- In the Name field, enter Project Article 1. When you’re totally happy with all of the above, click the OK button (see Figure 4).
