I just started using the latest version of PP after being on a way older version. One thing that is extremely frustrating: If I want to start a new project, I always need to change the project location and then go to the portion right below it (where the folder>Desktop>Videos) and click onto the same exact folder.
Is there a reason I need to do this? Can I just click onto one of these and it'll automatically move everything to the new folder?
The new import page was never intended to replace the more organized methods of advanced users ... it's simply a quick start version for simpler projects. Replacing the options in the old new project dialog (for a ton of cache/whatever locations) that few users ever used.
So ... do exactly what you did before, that's all.
Type a Name, set a Location for the project file. (And make sure nothing is starred in the middle panel, or blue on t the right side other than the Create button.)
And then you can use the MediaBrowser's ingest capabilities or the Project manager's Import options to add media to your project.
