Step 1: Setting Up Your Project

To get started, you need to open Premiere Elements 7, create a new project, and set up the Timeline. These first steps are typical when starting any project.

Task: Set up a new project in Premiere Elements 7 by doing the following:

  1. If Premiere Elements 7 is not already running, launch it in the usual way.
  2. At the opening splash screen, select New Project.
  3. Create a project called Replicator_Effect (see Figure 1).
  4. Figure 1

  5. When the Premiere Elements interface has finished loading, click the Timeline button to switch to the Timeline view (see Figure 2).
  6. Right-click the Timeline header Video 1 and select Rename from the contextual menu (see Figure 3). Assign the new name Main_Video (see Figure 4).
  7. Right-click in the Timeline header area and deselect Show Audio Tracks from the contextual menu (see Figure 5).
  8. Repeat step 5, renaming Video 2 as Mask and Video 3 as Beam (see Figure 6).
