In the public beta, they already have the just-import-the-durn-folder structure working. So at some point, we'll finally get it in the shipping version.

Really looking forward to the engineers implementing this. It's another one of those silly "gotchas" in Premiere.

Maha,

 

There are two problems here, and the feature request Kevin links to is the bigger problem. If you have zero or only one item in a folder, PR ignores the folder. There is no workaround for this limitation.

 

I'm assuming you have items in the folders you want to import. When you use your import method - right click in the Project Panel and pick import - it behaves just as you demonstrate, even if there are 2 or more items in the folder. (I tested with multiple items, so even if one of your folders had only one item, I have confirmed the problem.)

 

You can work around this limitation by dragging the folders to the Project Panel or by using Media Browser. There, you can select multiple folders and they will be imported.

 

Except for folders with zero or one items. So upvote that feature request.

 

The new "Import" mode window is not useful for either of these problems. You can select multiple folders, but PR creates its own folder named "Bin," and imports all the Files there - no folders at all! I think many users are just skipping the import option there. But there is a feature request that addresses that one:

The only workaround is to import folders into Ae. (use to do this in the past with lots of folders).

Ae will honor all folder structure. You can import multi folder is one go. Or one folder with multi folders inside.

Copy folders from AE, paste in Pr and voila.

Thanks for the explanation. What is PR? drag & drop does not work with windows OS.

"Pr" is probably Premiere. I can't drag and drop from AE to PP on mac either, so I copied in AE, then pasted in PP. It totally works! 

 

Also, I never use the "import" tab. All of my projects follow a specific bin structure. Why would I choose to create a new bin or folder with imported footage when I could just drag and drop into the specific bin that I need the footage to be in? Too bad drag and drop is only an optino if the folder contains more than one file or folder. Maybe it's useful for people wtih very light, small, personal projects and they're just editing a few clips together. But projects like mine (and a lot of professionals here probably) have stock footage, footage I or some other camera operator shot, various music clips, external audio, VO audio, images from the client, stock imagery, vector graphics from AI, AE sequences, lossless renders from AE-- etc etc. My folder structures have to be buttoned-up and consistent. So the import tab is useless. A dropdown menu that lets you select a bin in the current project would be nice, though.
