Multiple Ways of Importing Footage into Premiere Pro

Go beyond the typical import settings. In this post we look at three additional options for getting your footage into Premiere Pro.

The most common way to get footage into Premiere Pro is to import it. You do this by going to File > Import, or by double clicking in the Project.

But what you may not know is there are 3 other ways to get footage into Premiere Pro.

Premiere Pro Media Browser

The Media Browser is part of Premiere Pro. If you are using the default workspace in Premiere Pro, it is beside the Project panel. The Media Browser allows you to view and play your footage on your hard drive before you import it into Premiere Pro.
