  36. 36. Four quick tips for non-nirvana editing moments: 1. If for some reason you can’t find your workspace set up and looks weird, go to Window>reset workspace (Editing) 1. If you can’t find tools, then go to Window>Tools (anything else MIA, check this area) 1. If your video plays haltingly or won’t play and has redline at top of timeline, hit return to render 1. If for some reason you forgot to put all media in correct folder. And you get a MEDIA OFFLINE RED CARD, do not panic. Simply MOVE file to your project folder & RELINK by clicking on missing file in the PROJECT WINDOW then PROJECT>LINK MEDIA and Link to Project Folder OR if file is completely MIA just skip for now, then retrieve and re-link once you have found/recaptured and stored in your project file (and reopen the file. Premiere will ask you to where it is when you reopen). **Note: If you only work on your very own computer, re-linking is obviously quite easy (and everything need not be in one folder), but once you move around computers – and working on public computers that get scrubbed file/folder management is absolutely crucial. In any case you should always back up your work through external drive or other storage possibilities mentioned like google drive).
  37. 37. Go to YouTube, Vimeo, Internet Archive etc to upload your exported video.
  38. 38. Added title and a description (in support of my commons/fair use rights). Here is a good place also to add citations or references.
  39. 39. Select Share for multiple ways to distribute your video. Via share you can generate an embed code. Copy this code and paste for use on your website and drop in via html tab.
