Import + Organize Your Digital Files
How To Keep Your Video and Audio Files Organized
Import the audio first.
These files are smaller and will be easier and faster to import.
Import the video footage second. You can either edit directly off the SD card, or import to your desktop instead (this will take a bit longer).
Regardless of whether you pull the video footage to your desktop or not, make sure when you import, you immediately make a backup of ALL files on your external hard drive.
- File Type (i.e. video, photo)
- Project Name with Date (i.e. brand, project or batch name plus month/year)
- Type of Shot (i.e. intro/content/outro or headshot/wide shot, etc)
