Hey gang!

I make the same bin folder structure for all my video editing projects and I'm trying to cut out repetitive actions in my workflow. Is this possible to automate with a script so I can turn the creating and renaming of new bins into one click? Thanks!

I have my own 'starter' project with folder, items, logos, clips. I just open that and save as, and I'm ready.

I was looking for this as well. However, I just now thought of something that may be easiest and it's free.
Follow these steps:

     1. Create a new project

     2. Build your Bins the way you want them

     3. After completion, save project as "BINS-TEMPLATE" on your desktop.

     4. Also save a copy of this within your backup, in case you modify the original.

Now when you open that from your desktop, it will be a fresh project with the bins you want, to which you should then immediately ''Save as" and create the project folder to its proper project location that you want.

You can also pin your BINS-TEMPLATE you created to your taskbar, but when you do that, you will have to right-click the Premiere icon on the task bar and select your BINS-TEMPLATE from under the "pinned" section (possibly top of list).

Once this becomes a part of your normal practice, it saves a ton of time, and you get the bins you want.

Yeah but then your working in an older version of premiere if it updates, the only way to do it this way is to open both a new file and that BINS-TEMPLATE file and copy the bins into the new file which is kind of tedious, it would be nice if we could save bins into our workspace layouts
