Step 2: Adding Media to the Project and the Timeline

In this section, you'll add media to the project in one of two ways—by capturing directly from your camera, or by importing from your hard drive. Then you'll drag-and-drop the media onto the Timeline.

Task: Add your media to the project and then to the Timeline by following these steps:

  1. Bring your action scene into Premiere Elements 7 by using one of the following methods:
    • With your camera connected to your computer, click the Organize tab and then click the DV Camcorder button. Capture your footage in the usual way (see Figure 8).
    • Click the Organize tab and then click the PC Files and Folders button. Import your files in the usual way (see Figure 9).
  2. Click the Edit tab to switch to the Edit Workspace; then click the Project button to display the Media view. Your captured or imported files should show here.
  3. Drag your action scene from the Media view and onto the Main_Video track of the Timeline (see Figure 10).
