Try to use the same workstation you did before. The
computers in Taylor 131 are set up with different versions of Adobe Premiere. Version
5.1 will open files created on version 5.0, but version 5.0 may not be able to open files
created on version 5.1. Try to stay with the same version of Adobe
Premiere for all the work you do on one project.
As soon as you boot up your workstation, use the
Finder to close any application programs a previous user may have left open.
Insert your course CD. Copy the entire folder for the
project you are working on to the computers hard drive. Remove your CD.
Insert your Zip disk with the previously saved
Project file (the one with the .ppj file extension). Copy
the .ppj file to the computers hard drive. The best
place to store it is in the folder with the rest of the project materials (the one you
just copied from the CD). Remove your Zip disk.
Start Premiere. Choose File>Open>Project.
Use the dialog box to select the .ppj file for the project
you want to work on. Open the Project file.
The program may ask you where your source files are.
Use the dialog box to locate the files in the folder you copied to the hard drive. Click
on the requested file to tell the program where it is.
When all the source files have been located, continue
working on the project as before.
