Finding assets with the Media Browser
The Media Browser in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 allows you to easily browse for files on your computer. Unlike the Import dialog (or Choose Object dialog) you used previously in this lesson, the Media Browser can stay open all the time and be docked where you find it convenient. In Lesson 3 you’ll learn how useful the Media Browser is for finding and importing file-based media such as P2, AVCHD, and XDCAM assets.
The Media Browser is pretty self-explanatory. You’ll learn to use it by importing the same assets you did earlier via the Import dialog (or Choose Object dialog).
- Open Lesson 02-01.prproj in the Lesson 02 folder. This project should have no assets imported yet.
- Expand the Media Browser by dragging its right edge to the right.
- Using the Media Browser, navigate to the Lessons/Assets folder.
- Select the same assets as you did before, and drag them to the Project panel.
