 I am trying to work with multiple projects open in Premier Pro. As you can see by the screenshot, the project I originally opened the program with displays on the timeline. I opened another project and it is showing up in the project panel but when I click on it all of the other panels remain linked to the other project. How do I get the timeline panel from the other project to show up? Why isn't the name of the other project appearing in the timeline panel for me to click on so I can switch between them?

I should add that when I go to Window>Projects it shows both of my projects.

When I go to Window>Timelines it only shows the project I opened Premiere Pro with.

I would like to know this too. I feel totally stupid for not understanding this.

Hi, summeresque,

Sorry for the confusion on multiple projects. From your screenshots, I feel that some of your Dallas assets are in your Carnegie project, and you are having trouble finding the proper sequence to open. The other confusing thing is that in the Icon view, it's not easy to discern the difference between a sequence (timeline) and a clip.

 

Screen Shot 2022-04-01 at 2.05.50 PM.pngSee this post for a visual cue.

 

In my multiple projects workflows (in which I share assets between projects), I try to keep only one project open at a time unless I am sharing assets (clips, sequences, graphics, music, SFX) from one project to another. Then, I close that second project once I have what I want. That way, I don't add items to the wrong project, like "Dallas Library" assets, to the "Carnegie Library" project (unless I expressly mean to do so). I can also avoid making a new sequence in the wrong project.

 

FYI: There is a feature now called "Productions" where you can tie together multiple projects for sharing assets amongst multiple users or even with yourself (if you have a large and complex project). For example, I have a substantial multiple project Production for the doc project of my travels. I am tracking a couple of dozen projects containing photos, clips, sound, graphics, stock footage, you name it. 

 

Let me know if you have any questions about Productions because it sounds like it may benefit this "Library" project you have been working on. I wish you the best of luck on it. 

 

Thanks,
Kevin
