The first step in creating a movie with Adobe Premiere Pro is to collect the media that will be used in the project. While it is possible to capture video footage directly from a video camera into your computer using Adobe Premiere Pro, we'll be working with previously recorded video files which are ready to be imported into Premiere. We'll also incorporate some pre-recorded audio and some still images from Flickr in our project. All of these media elements that will be used in our project are referred to as assets.
It is important to note that when you import assets into Premiere Pro, you are creating links to the files. The items will not be stored in the application itself. This means that if you move or rename the source files while working on a project, Adobe Premiere Pro will not be able to find them. However, you can relink missing assets if necessary when moving a project to another computer.
