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:

  1. Launch Premiere CS3.
  2. Once the program has finished loading, you will be presented with a Welcome screen. Choose New Project from the three options (see Figure 3).
  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.
  4. With the preset highlighted, browse to your media drive and open the folder called Photomontage – Peachpit – Article1.
  5. 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).
