I'm trying to create a new Premiere Pro project, which apparently begins with importing media. I have what I understand to be compatible media selected, but the "create" button is grayed-out, prohibiting me from going further.

 

Does anyone understand why and could they suggest a remedy for this?

 

Thanks.

Most users bypass any importing on this 'page', as it's not necessary.

 

De-select everything in the middle and the right-side 'create sequence' button, so nothing is selected in the middle nor blue on the right side ...the only things done on this page are giving the project a name and location.

 

Now scroll down, the Create button should be available far lower right, click that, and your project opens as it used to. Now add media as you used to via the Project panel or MediaBrowser panel.

Thank you, @R Neil Haugen, I really appreciate your help.

 

Amazing, I couldn't deselect anything, and all of the menus were grayed-out. I had to force quit. What a terrible user experience, right off the bat, before I even got started.

 

But once I restarted the app and followed your suggestions, everything worked as expected.
