Importing videos into Adobe Premiere Elements – Part II

Last week, we discussed how to import videos into Adobe Premiere Elements from a camcorder. This week, I show you how to import media (videos and photos) in different ways.

There are two workflows which you can follow to import media into Adobe Premiere Elements:

  • When you import files using Elements Organizer, the files are only referenced from their physical locations on the user’s computer. They are not embedded into Organizer.
  • The second method is to import directly  into the Adobe Premiere Elements workspace.
