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, and if you have been following all the other tutorials, you should be now very familiar with the process.
Task: Set up a new project in Premiere Elements 7 by doing the following:
- If Premiere Elements 7 is not already running, launch it in the usual way.
- At the opening splash screen, select New Project.
- Create a project called Replacement_TV.
- When the Premiere Elements interface has finished loading, click the Timeline button to switch to the Timeline view (see Figure 2).
- 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).
- Repeat step 5, renaming Video 2 as Channel_1 and Video 3 as Channel_2 (see Figure 5).
