Adobe Premiere: How To Set Up a New Workspace

Adobe Premiere Pro is a very powerful piece of software which makes it possible to edit videos. Video editing applications are very popular because they make editing digital videos very simple. One of the best features of this piece of software is that it's possible to create and customize work spaces so that you can work quickly and conveniently.

The workspace is the area of the program which is displayed when you create a new project. Clicking File, New will present the workspace. By default the workspace will have a specific layout. However all of these windows and panels can be dragged, moved and even hidden. You can create different groups of panels which can be dragged onto the workspace to make certain things more convenient. The fact that it's possible to customize the workspace makes using the software very simple.

Step 1: Displaying the Workspace

To display the workspace on your screen you simply need to click "File, New." This will normally launch the default workspace arrangement which is suitable for most tasks. However depending on how you use the software you will find that different layouts suit you better. The different workspaces already available can be found by clicking the Window menu.

Step 2: Getting to Know the Workspace

The workspace is split into a number of different panels. All of these panels allow you to do various different tasks. Spend time getting to know the workspace and what the different panels do. This information should be in the help file or quick start guide which came with the software. Unlike other Adobe applications the windows are not floating, instead they are fixed in the workspace.

Step 3: Resizing Panels

The panels can be resized so that they fit together or allow more editing space. To resize a panel simply hover over the border and you should notice the cursor chance. Then hold down the mouse and use it to click and drag the panel to the correct size. The other panels will automatically adjust themselves so that they fill the rest of the space.

Step 4: Floating Windows

If you are familiar with other Adobe applications then you will be aware of floating windows. This is more convenient for some people and also makes it possible to display certain panels on other monitors if you have more monitors connected to your computer. If you want to float a panel then hold down Control and click it. If you're using a Mac then you should hold down command and click the panel. Once the mouse button is released the panel will then be floating above the workspace rather than embedded in nit.

Step 5: Saving Workspace

Once you've finished you can save the workspace so you can use it again later. Click on Window, Workspace and click Save Workspace. Give your work space a memorable name which will make it easy to find in the future. This will make it easy to select the workspace again. Once you create a new project next time the workspace can be selected by choosing it from the Window menu.
