Step 3: Create Good Housekeeping Inside Premiere CS3

Good housekeeping skills also apply to using Premiere CS3, so you’ll want to create an equally logical place for your media inside Premiere. This not only saves time but also allows your project to be about creativity and not about "where the hell did I put that photo?"

Task: To create a new bin and import your music file, do the following:

  1. Launch Premiere CS3, if it is not already open, and select a preset as described above.
  2. Locate the Project panel, which by default is usually at the top right of the interface (see Figure 5).
  3. Create a new bin and name it Music by doing one of the following:
  4. Right-click (Ctrl+click) inside the Project Panel and select New Bin from the contextual menu (see Figure 6). Type ’Music’ and press Enter.

    Click the New Bin button at the bottom of the Project Panel (see Figure 7); then type ’Music’ and press Enter.

  5. Highlight the Music bin by clicking on it once; then import your music file by doing one of the following:

    Right-click/Ctrl+click inside the bin and select Import from the contextual menu (see Figure 8).

  6. Click File > Import (see Figure 9).

    Use the Keyboard shortcut Ctrl+I.

  7. When the Import dialog box opens, browse to the music folder on your media drive, select your file, and click Open.
