Hello! when creating a new project I want to import only ONE subfolder/file from the main folder where my whole project is located, but there is no way to unselect all but one folder/file,  premiere just automatically selects all files from the previously double-clicked main folder, that has inside many folders and files, but I just only need one of them and unselecting one by one is a waste of time, especially if there are hundreds of files for example.
Am I doing something wrong? Or it's just a poorly designed Import tab.

You can skip the new import tab by giving your project a name and give it a location > OK

 Import your folder in the Project window or with the Media Browser.

Ann's right ... name your project, select a location, click Create and build your project in the normal ways for more complex or specific needs.

 

The new import process was added as a replacement for the options on the old 'new project' dialog that few users ever used. This added import process is something that is designed for someone who needs to make and finish quick projects ... maybe many in a day ... an example would be a TV newsroom editor.

 

So it's simple, grabs everything in the folder & under in one 'flat' bin ... and I've been told is fantastic for those that need that.

 

But for most of us, it ain't a good way to start a project, and we weren't expected to use it anyway.
