Organizing Media in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

The Project panel

Anything you import into your Adobe Premiere Pro CC project will appear in the Project panel. As well as giving you excellent tools for browsing your clips and working with their metadata, the Project panel has special folders, called bins, that you can use to organize everything.

No matter how you import your clips, everything that appears in a sequence must appear in the Project panel. If you delete a clip in the Project panel that is already used in a sequence, the clip will automatically be removed from the sequence. Don’t worry, though, because Adobe Premiere Pro will warn you if you do this.

As well as acting as the repository for all of your clips, the Project panel gives you important options for interpreting media. All of your footage will have a frame rate and pixel aspect ratio, for example, and you may want to change these settings for creative reasons. You could, for example, interpret 60fps video as 30fps to achieve a slow-motion effect. You might also receive a video file that has the wrong pixel aspect ratio setting.

Adobe Premiere Pro uses metadata associated with footage to know how to play it back. If you want to change the clip metadata, you can do so in the Project panel.

Customizing the Project panel

It’s quite likely that you will want to resize the Project panel from time to time. You’ll be alternating between looking at your clips as a list or as thumbnails, and sometimes it’s quicker to resize the panel than scroll over to see more information.

The default Editing workspace is designed to keep the interface as clean as possible so you can focus on your creative work rather than the buttons. Part of the Project panel that’s hidden from view, called the Preview Area, gives additional information about your clips.

Let’s take a look at it:

  1. Click the panel menu for the Project panel.
  2. Choose Preview Area.

    04fig03.jpg

    The Preview Area shows you several kinds of useful information about a clip when you select it in the Project panel, including the frame size, pixel aspect ratio, and duration.

    If it is not already selected, click the List View button list_view_button_icon.jpg at the bottom-left corner of the Project panel. In this view, a lot of information is available about each clip in the Project panel, but you need to scroll horizontally to see it.

    The Preview Area gives you a mix of information about clips when you need it.

  3. Click the panel menu for the Project panel.
  4. Choose Preview Area to hide it.

Finding assets in the Project panel

Working with clips is a little like working with pieces of paper at your desk. If you have just one or two clips, it’s easy. Once you have one or two hundred, you need a system!

One way you can help make things smoother during the edit is to take a little time to organize your clips at the very beginning. If you can name your clips during capture or after importing them, it can help enormously. Even if you don’t give each individual clip its own name during capture from tape, you can give a name to each type of shot and let Adobe Premiere Pro add 01, 02, 03, and so on (see Lesson 3, “Importing Media”).

  1. Click the Name heading at the top of the Project panel. The items in the Project panel are displayed in alphabetical order or reverse alphabetical order when you click the Name heading again.

    04fig05.jpg
  2. Scroll to the right until you can see the Media Duration heading in the Project panel. This shows the total duration of each clip’s media file.

  3. Click the Media Duration heading. Adobe Premiere Pro displays the clips in order of media duration. Notice the direction arrow on the Media Duration heading. When you click the heading, the direction arrow toggles between showing clips in duration order or reverse duration order.

    04fig06.jpg

    If you’re looking for lots of clips with particular features—such as a duration or a frame size—it can be helpful to change the order in which the headings are displayed.

  4. Drag the Media Duration heading to the left until you see a blue divider between the Label heading and the Name heading. When you release the mouse button, the Media Duration heading will be repositioned right next to the Name heading.

Filter bin content

Adobe Premiere Pro has built-in search tools to help you find your media. Even if you are using the rather non-descriptive original clip names taken from a file-based camera, you can search for things like a frame size or a file type.

04fig08.jpg

At the top of the Project panel, you can type in the Filter Bin Content box to display only clips that match the text you enter. This is a very quick and easy way of locating a clip if you remember what it is called. Clips that don’t match the text you enter are hidden and clips that do are revealed, even if they are inside a bin.

  1. Click in the Filter Bin Content box, and type the letters joh.

    Adobe Premiere Pro displays only the clips with the letters “joh” in the name or in the metadata. Notice that the name of the project is displayed above the text entry box, along with “(filtered).”

    04fig09.jpg
  2. Click the X on the right of the Filter Bin Content box to clear your filter.
  3. Type the letters psd in the box.

Adobe Premiere Pro displays only clips that have the letters “psd” in their name or metadata, along with all the project bins. In this case, it’s the Theft Unexpected title you imported earlier as both a flattened and a layered image. Using the Filter Bin Content box in this way, you can look for particular types of files.

04fig10.jpg

To the left of the text entry box, there’s a button menu that displays a list of recent entries, along with the number of clips that match the search criteria.

To the right of the Filter Bin Content box, there’s an In menu where you can specify whether Adobe Premiere Pro should search for clips based on all of the available metadata, just the metadata displayed currently (see “Working with bins” later in this lesson), or words taken from scripts (see “Organizing media with content analysis” later in this lesson).

04fig11.jpg

Usually, it isn’t necessary to choose anything in this menu, because the filtering works when using the All option if you type selections carefully. Be sure to click the X on the right of the Filter Bin Content box to clear your filter.

Find

Adobe Premiere Pro also has an advanced Find option. To learn about it, let’s import a couple of extra clips.

  1. Using any of the methods described in Lesson 3, import these items:

    • Seattle_Skyline.mov from the Assets/Video and Audio Files/General Views folder.
    • Under Basket.MOV from the Assets/Video and Audio Files/Basketball folder.
  2. At the bottom of the Project panel, click the Find button find_button.jpg. Adobe Premiere Pro displays the Find panel, which has more advanced options for locating your clips.

There are two sets of searches you can perform at the same time with the Adobe Premiere Pro Find panel. You can choose to display clips that match both search criteria or either search criterion. For example, you could do either of the following:

  • Search for a clip with the words dog AND boat in its name.
  • Search for a clip with the word dog OR boat in its name.

Then choose from the following options:

  • Column: Selects from the available headings in the Project panel. When you click Find, Adobe Premiere Pro will search using only the heading you select.
  • Operator: Gives you a set of standard search options. Use this menu to choose whether you want to find a clip that contains, matches exactly, begins with, or ends with whatever you search for.
  • Match: Choose All to find a clip with both your first and second search text. Choose Any to find a clip with either your first or your second search text.
  • Case Sensitive: Tells Adobe Premiere Pro whether you want your search to exactly match the upper- and lowercase letters you enter.
  • Find What: Type your search text here. You can add up to two sets of search text.

When you click Find, Adobe Premiere Pro highlights a clip that matches your search criteria. Click Find again, and Adobe Premiere Pro highlights the next clip that matches your search criteria. Click Done to exit the Find dialog box.

Organizing Media in Adobe Premier Pro

Using the Project panel

Everything you import into your Adobe Premiere Pro project will appear in the Project panel. As well as giving you tools for browsing your clips and working with their metadata, the Project panel has folder-like bins that you can use to stay organized.

In addition to acting as the repository for all your clips, the Project panel gives you important options for interpreting media. All your footage will have a frame rate (frames per second, or fps) and a pixel aspect ratio (pixel shape), for example. You may want to change these settings for creative or technical reasons.

You could, for example, interpret video recorded at 60 fps video as 30 fps to achieve a 50% slow-motion effect. You might receive a video file that has the wrong pixel aspect ratio setting and want to correct it.

Premiere Pro uses metadata associated with footage to know how to play it back and can display and edit additional metadata (such as location log notes) in the Project panel or the dedicated Metadata panel. If you want to change the clip metadata, you can do so in the Project panel.

Customizing the Project panel

It’s likely that you’ll want to resize the Project panel from time to time. You’ll alternate between looking at your clips as a list or as thumbnail icons. Sometimes it’s quicker to resize the panel than to scroll to see more information.

The default Editing workspace is designed to keep the interface as clean as possible so you can focus on your creative work. Part of the Project panel that’s hidden from view by default, called the Preview Area, gives additional information about your clips.

Let’s take a look.

  1. Open the Project panel menu.

  2. Choose Preview Area.

    The Preview Area shows you several kinds of useful information about a selected clip in the Project panel, including the frame size, pixel aspect ratio, and duration.

    If it’s not already selected, click the List View button f0082-03.jpg at the bottom left of the Project panel. In this view, you’ll find a lot of information about each clip in the Project panel organized in columns, but you need to scroll horizontally to see it.

  3. Choose Preview Area from the Project panel menu again to hide it.

There is also a Freeform view in the Project panel, which can be used to organize clips or even begin to build sequences (more on this in “Freeform view,” in this lesson).

Finding assets in the Project panel

Working with clips is a little like working with pieces of paper at your desk. If you have just one or two clips, it’s easy. But when you have 100 to 200, you need an organizational system.

One way you can help make things smoother during the edit is to invest a little time in organizing your clips at the beginning. If you rename your clips after importing them, you can more easily locate content later (see “Changing names” in this lesson).

  1. Click the Name column heading at the top of the Project panel. Each time you click the Name heading, items in the Project panel are displayed in alphabetical order or reverse alphabetical order. A direction indicator next to the heading shows the current sort order.

    If you’re searching for several clips with particular features—such as a duration or a frame size—it can be helpful to change the order in which the headings are displayed.

  2. Scroll to the right until you can see the Media Duration heading in the Project panel. This shows the total duration of each clip’s media file.

  3. Click the Media Duration heading. Premiere Pro now displays the clips in order of media duration. Notice the direction arrow on the Media Duration heading. Each time you click the heading, the direction arrow toggles between showing clips in order of increasing duration and decreasing duration.

  4. Drag the Media Duration heading to the left until you see a blue divider between the Frame Rate heading and the Name heading. When you release the heading, the Media Duration heading will be repositioned right next to the Name heading.

Filtering bin content

Premiere Pro has search tools to help you find your media. Even if you’re using the nondescriptive original clip names assigned in-camera, you can search for clips based on a number of factors, such as frame size or file type.

At the top of the Project panel, you can type in the Search (or Filter Bin Content) field to display only clips with names or metadata matching the text you enter. This is a quick way to locate a clip if you remember its name (or even part of its name). Clips that don’t match the text you enter are hidden, and clips that do match are revealed, even if they are inside a closed bin.

Try this now.

  1. Click in the Filter Bin Content box, and type jo.

    Premiere Pro displays only the clips with the letters jo in the name or in the metadata. Notice that the name of the project is displayed above the text-entry box, along with (filtered). This is the only indication that some of the clips in the Project panel may be hidden.

  2. Click the X on the right of the Search field to clear your search.

  3. Type psd in the box.

Premiere Pro displays only clips that have the letters psd in their name or metadata. In this case, it’s the Theft_Unexpected title you imported in the previous lesson as a layered image—this is a Photoshop PSD file. Using the Filter Bin Content box in this way, you can search for particular types of files.

Some types of metadata can be edited directly in the Project panel. For example, you can add notes to the Description field, and these will immediately be searchable.

Be sure to click the X on the right of the Search field to clear your filter when you have found the clips you want. Do this now.

Using advanced Find

Premiere Pro also has an advanced Find feature. To learn about it, let’s import some more clips.

Using any of the methods described in Lesson 3, import these items:

  • Seattle_Skyline.mov from the Assets/Video and Audio Files/General Views folder

  • Under Basket.mov from the Assets/Video and Audio Files/Basketball folder

At the bottom of the Project panel, click the Find button f0085-01.jpg. Premiere Pro displays the Find dialog box, which has more advanced options for locating your clip.

You can perform two searches at once with the advanced Find dialog box. You can choose to display clips that match all search criteria or any search criteria. For example, depending on the setting you choose from the Match menu, you could do either of the following:

  • Search for a clip with the words dog and boat in its name.

  • Search for a clip with the word dog or boat in its name.

You can refine your search with the following menus:

  • Column: This menu lists the columns in the Project panel. When you click Find, Premiere Pro will search only within the column you choose.

  • Operator: This menu contains a set of standard search options. You can choose to have the search return clips that contain your search term, match it exactly, begin with it, end with it, or lack it entirely.

  • Match: Choose All to find a clip with both your first and your second search text. Choose Any to find a clip with either your first or your second search term.

  • Case Sensitive: Select this option to return only results that exactly match the uppercase and lowercase letters you enter.

  • Find What: Type your search text here.

When you click Find, Premiere Pro highlights a clip that matches your search criteria. Click Find again, and Premiere Pro highlights the next clip that matches your search criteria.

Click Done to exit the Find dialog box.

Once you have imported all the media that you need for a project into Premiere Pro, you can see all that media in the Project panel. However, if you have imported several clips, a handful of images, and so on, what you can actually have in the Project panel is a huge, disorganized mess.  

We will discuss:

  • How to use the Project panel to sort through and organize your media

  • Creating bins to make organizing your media easier

  • The List view in the Project panel

  • The Icon view in the Project panel

  • How you can use the Project panel to start editing your media

Exploring the Project Panel

Once we dragged media into the project panel, we have to organize it. 

The good news is that if you have created folders on your computer to sort files, then the process of organizing media in Premiere Pro will not seem so foreign to you. The process is very similar.   However, instead of using folders to sort files, you use bins to sort media.

By creating bins, then moving media into the bins, you can organize your media fairly quickly, but definitely easily.

Before we talk more about bins, let's explore the Project panel.

The Project panel is pictured below.

Project Panel Views

There are two views for the Project panel: List and Icon view.   We are in Icon view.

To switch to List view, click the menu in the upper right hand corner.

You can then switch from Icon to List, or vice versa.

List view is shown below.

The Preview Area

If you click the menu in the upper right hand corner again, you can select Preview Area to see previews of your media, as shown below.

One of the benefits of the Preview Area is the information provided to the right of the preview.

Navigating the Project Panel

You can scroll up and down through your media in the Project panel by using the scroll on the right side of the panel.


 

You can scroll left to right by using the bottom scroll bar.

Selecting Clips

To select clips in the project panel, you can:

  • Click on a clip to select it.

  • Shift+Click to select adjacent clips.

  • CTRL+Click to select non-adjacent clips.

  • Drag over clips to select them in the Project panel.

  • Go to Edit>Select All to select all clips in the Project panel.

Renaming Clips

To rename a clip, select the clip, then right click. Select Rename.

Next, click on the text area to the right of or below the clip thumbnail, whichever applies.

Type the new name for the clip, then press Enter.

Copying and Pasting a Clip

Select the click that you want to copy.

You can then right click and choose Copy, or you can go to Edit>Copy.

Go to the bin where you want to place the clip, then either right click and select Paste, or go to Edit>Paste.

Deleting a Clip

Select the clip you want to delete.

Right click on the clip, then choose Clear. You can also go to Edit>Clear.

Finding Clips

When you need to find clips in Premiere Pro, you can do so by either using the Find box or the Find dialogue box.   However, the Find box is the quickest way.  

Let's learn how to use both.

Find Box

To find clips using the Find box, locate the Find box in the Project panel. Go to the In dropdown menu (located to the right of the Find box), and choose if you want to search all metadata for all clips, only the metadata for clips visible in the Project panel, or search only the speech to text metadata field. This is a dialogue search.

Now, click the Find box, pictured below.

Type in a search term.  

Premiere Pro displays the results that match your search parameters. 

Find Dialogue Box

To find clips using the Find dialogue, click the Find button located on the bottom right of the Project panel (circled below).

You will then see this dialogue box:

Go to the Column section and choose a metadata field.

Next, go to the Operator section and choose a search condition. 

Enter a search term in the Find field.

If you want to, you can enter more criteria (another search term) in the next row.

Once you have selected all your criteria, click the Match dropdown menu, and choose if you want to:

  • Find All content that matches both criteria.

  • Find Any content that matches either criterion.

You can also choose whether you want your searches to be case sensitive.

Click the Find button when you are finished.

Using Bins to Organize Your Media

We talked about bins earlier. Bins are what you use to organize and store media in Premiere Pro. In fact, bins work in much the same way as folders do in Windows. 

Let's learn how to create and use bins to organize media.

Creating Bins

Creating bins to organize your media is as easy as creating a folder too.   To create a bin, go to File>New>Bin. You can also go to the Project panel and click on the New bin button, as circled below.

You will then see a new bin appear in the Project panel.

Naming Bins

To name the bin, click in the text area (highlighted above) and type in the name. Press Enter when you are finished.

In the snapshot above, we named our bin "Example."

Putting Clips in Bins

To put a clip in a bin, click on the clip, then drag it until it is over the bin you want to put it in. Release your mouse button. 

The clip will then appear below the bin (if you are in List view), as shown below.

Viewing Content in a Bin

Double-click on a bin to see the contents inside.

When you do, you will see the following window:

As you can see in the snapshot above, you can see the clips in the bin.  

You can also create a sub-bin by clicking the New Bin button in the above window.   Sub-bins work the same as sub-folders.

Setting Bin Preferences

Premiere Pro gives you the ability to specify how bins are opened, as well as to establish other bin-related preferences.

To set bin preferences, go to Edit>Preferences>General.

Go down to the Bins section, pictured below.

As you have already seen, by default, when we double click on a bin to see its contents, the bin opens in a new window.  

In Preferences, you can change this so that the bin opens in place (in the Project panel) or in a new tab. This is in the same frame as the Project panel

You can also choose your keyboard shortcuts by specifying what action takes place when you hit CTRL+click or Alt+click.

About List View in the Project Panel

When you view your content in List view in the Project panel, Premiere Pro lets you sort the content by categories to make it easier to find what you are looking for. 

We showed you how to go to List view earlier. List view looks like this:

Once you are in List view, you can choose the columns that you see. Right now, we see Name, Frame Rate, Media Start, etc. 

Click the panel menu located in the upper right hand corner of the Project panel. 

You will then see the Metadata Display dialogue box:

This dialogue box shows you the metadata categories.

Click an arrow to the left of a category to see the items in it:

Put checkmarks next to the items you want in that category. In the snapshot above, we are going to choose Rating.

Click OK when you are finished.

Notice in the snapshot below that Rating is now added as a column.

You can also remove categories (columns) by clicking to remove the checkmark in the Metadata Display dialogue box.

Once you have the columns that you want to appear by using the above dialogue box, you can sort by column to organize and find your content.

To sort by column, click the column name to select it. You will see a triangle appear to the right of the column name for ascending and descending. Click the name of the column again to reverse the sort order.

To rearrange the order of the columns, click the column that you want to move to select it. Drag it to its new location. You will see a blue indicator that will tell you where the column will be inserted.

About Icon View in the Project Panel

List view is great for sorting content. However, Icon view is perfect for viewing your content. There are two modes in Icon view that you can use to view the content of source clips.

Whenever you choose a clip in Icon view, you will see a scroll bar appear that you can use to drag through the clip.   You can even set In and Out points. In and Out points are used to mark the portion of a clip that will actually be used in the video project you are working on.   This is a great way to speed up the editing process.

Icon view in Premiere Pro is pictured below:

To get to Icon view, go to the panel menu and choose Icon view.

You can sort the icons in Icon view by clicking the Sort Icons button, circled below.

Select your sort criteria from the menu:

To preview clips in Icon view, click on a clip to select it. You will see a scroll bar with a playhead below the clip.

You can use the scroll bar to drag through the clip.

You can click anywhere in the orange area to move the playhead to that location. 

You can also use the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Spacebar to start or stop playing.

  •  J to rewind. Press J again to rewind faster.

  • Press L to play the clip. Press L again to fast forward.

  • Press K to stop the clip from playing.

Marking In and Out Points in Icon View

Marking In and Out points sounds more difficult than it really is.  

To mark an In point, go to the spot where you want the clip to start playing in your video. You can click in the orange area of the clip or you can play, fast forward, or rewind to find that location.

To mark that point as the In point, go to Marker>Mark In.

To establish the Out point, go to Marker>Mark Out.
