Can I create a default bin for nested sequences, etc?

I like to keep an organized Project window.  When I create a new nested sequence of clips, you never know where the file will be placed in the Project window.  Usually, it's a root item ... but sometimes it lands in a bin.  Same thing when copying a frame of video as a still image, using the frame export tool / camera icon.  This also happens when dragging a sequence from one project to another.  The elements go all over the place. 

Is there a way to designate a default bin for all this stuff to land in?

Sumeet, I do appreciate your exhaustive explanation of search bins.  I have tried using them for many years, but they are far from infallible.

I asked:  Is there a way to create a default bin?  A simple "no" would have answered my question.  A search bin is not a default bin.

I have the project window in list view and sorted by name.

I make a bin called Nest: all I have to do is drag it up one position into the bin.

That's what I'm trying to avoid.  My projects have hundreds of items.  I want a bin that collects all the new junk without having to track each one down and get it out of the way.  Thanks for your interest.

Hi Mr. Positronic,

You may not be able to do an automated bin creation specifically for the nested sequence but you can do it for sequence category as a whole or you can set an automated bin to sort  clips based on clip or media properties. In Premiere Pro, you have an option for Search Bins that displays a collection of project items matching your search criteria. Search Bins are updated automatically when importing assets, deleting assets, or modifying asset metadata.

You may create such custom Search Bins that can automatically rearrange and collect your clips and assets automatically.

You may refer to this link to learn more on Search Bins in Premiere Pro.

Hope you find it useful.

Regards

Yes, the search bin is a nifty trick and potentially a good workaround.  My projects, however, usually have a dozens of bins for footage shot in dozens of locations.  What happens when I import a new clip or make a new frame grab?  The file sometimes ends up in the main directory and sometimes ends up in a bin.  Sometimes I have to hunt it down.  I wish new files would either go to the bin that you designated or to a catch-all for new stuff, so at least I had only 2 places to look for it.

Can I program a search bin to show files that are newly added to a project?

Hi Mr. Positronic,

The Search Bins are automatically updated when importing assets, deleting assets, or modifying asset metadata. So if you add any new file in the project that matches the search criteria then it will be automatically listed in that specific Search Bin.

However, please note that the Search Bin is an additional bin that only supports an automated sorting of media or assets and you can not add an item manually to the Search Bin. It can only list an item under it once that item meets the search criteria.

The clips that you will import will still get imported into any other specified bin or the project tab itself. So you may have the imported media or assets outside the Search Bin and have a Search Bin with the sorting applied at the same time.

Regards

Okay, so I'm not missing something.  There is no default.  Search functions are nice, but not the solution I was hoping for. Imagine if your web browser didn't have a way to always download a file to a certain folder.  I can always search for it, but it would be nice if it always went to the inbox.  And importing files is not the issue.  Most of the time, PP will import to the bin you select.  Nests never go to a selected bin.  Frame grabs sometimes go to a selected bin.  New sequences creating by dragging source material go to the source material bin.

Hi Mr. Positronic,

The Search Bins won't replace the regular bins. These will be only sorting and highlighting the search results for the assets used in the project based on the search criteria. Currently, the functionality to set filter criteria for the regular bins is not available in Premiere Pro and is limited to Search Bins. We will encourage you to submit a feature request for this here

DaVinci Resolve has such a feature.  Premiere Pro does not.

I follow Ann's suggestion and find that workflow to work for me, under the circumstances.  Mr_Positronic's suggestion would be great.  I landed here hoping for such a solution.  I tried boolean search bins, and it doesn't quite solve the problem, but it may work well enough for some.  (("Nested Sequence")) works to collect all nested sequences which I have not renamed.  This workflow is better for editors who don't need to organize their project pane.  The sequences will be left out in the project pane, but they will also collect into the search bin.

Has anything changed on this since 2018? I want to change the default bin for the nested sequences to go into. It makes no sense to me that they don't go into the same bin as the source footage (from a usability view) from a programming view it makes sense in that its the easiest option to fling them all to one place 😒
