Now, lets take look at the lay of the land. The Premiere workspace is divided up into 3 main windows: The Project Window, the Timeline, and the Monitor.
The upper left is your Project Window, which is like a file cabinet for your project within which you put your media files - audio, video, still pictures, etc. The clips you just captured should be there.
You can get more details on the files in your Project Window by using the scroll bar at the bottom. The new columns will tell you which files are video, which are audio, which are both video and audio and how many tracks of audio there are, etc.
Within the Project Window are bins. A bin is a folder that holds your clips. You can create a new bin by hitting the folder icon at the bottom of the Project window.
You can keep all your clips in one bin, or organize them in several bins, or have separate bins for different interviews, or audio and graphics. It's up to you. You can move clips into bins by dragging and dropping. You can make copies of clips if you want to put the same clip in different bins.
To see what's in a bin, double click on the folder icon.
The clip icons are actually only references to the media files, not the files themselves.This keeps the project small and it means that the clips you've captured won't be altered. They'll remain as you captured them on your hard drive (this is non-destructive part of non-destructive editing).
You can view clips as thumbnails. Click the Thumbnail icon at the bottom of the Project window.
