When you want to use a file in your project, you import the file as a clip. You can import one clip at a time, several clips at a time, or an entire folder of clips. You can even import another project into the current project.
Clips can be as big as 4,000 pixels tall by 4,000 pixels wide, and Premiere can support a variety of video and audio formats. Over time, Adobe and other manufacturers undoubtedly will offer plug-in software modules to provide additional file-format support.
To import a file as a clip in the project:
In the Project window, click the bin into which you want to import a clip to select it (Figure 3.2).
