Learn How to Import Videos and Songs Into an Adobe Premiere Pro Project

If we want to edit videos like a pro, one of the best editors we can use is Adobe Premiere Pro . This is one of the most complete non-linear video editors that we can find, but if we are amateurs and we have no previous experience using this type of programs, we may not know where to start, and that the large number of options offered to us The program gets dizzy.



Although it may seem very complicated, the interface and all the features of Adobe Premiere are very intuitive. With knowing the basics of the program, in a very short time we can defend ourselves without problems with this program.

Starting from a new Adobe Premiere Pro project , we are going to see one of the fundamental aspects in this type of programs: how to add videos, and other content, to the project in order to start working with them.

How to add new videos to the Adobe Premiere Pro project

The Adobe Premiere window, when we have a new project created, will appear as follows. As we can see, we have selected the editing workspace, since it is the most common and in which we will work most of the time.

This workspace is divided mainly into 4 frames . The two above will allow us to preview the video and the entire editing process. The first one at the bottom will show us all imported media, and on your right we will have the timeline where we will assemble everything.

To import content into our project we can do it, either with the keyboard shortcut Control + I , or simply by dragging the content of our computer to the main Adobe Premiere window.

All the content we add will appear in the project in the media box.

As we will see, the content will appear with its own name, with its properties (such as frames per second, duration, resolution, audio information, etc.) and we can also access from here a series of options. Among them, we can adjust this box to show, either all the files in a list, or all the files in thumbnails.

This section of media has several elements that allow us to manage all the videos and objects that we import. For example, we can access a media browser to find files on our computer from the program itself, access the media libraries, an information section, effects that we have created, bookmarks for the most used items and a history with everything What has been done.
