Media Panel

The media panel is the place where you get to add all of the video, audio and images that you have imported to work with on your project. The panel contains all of the media references and it's more of a creative hub where all of the media is stored. The files that you intend to work with in your project gets stored in the media library and there are folders where individual media files can be stored.

There are folders in the panel that separate the different media types so you can categorize them as desired. It's important to note that before you can work on any media file, you must fast add it to the project panel. You can also create planes in the Media Panel. Planes are colored rectangles you can use as graphics layers.
