Davinci Resolve 18 lacks Preferences Presets?

PostMon Nov 28, 2022 9:32 pm

When I used Windows 10 and Davinci Resolve Studio (at least up to 16; not sure after that) there was a Presets preference. In that I was able previously to specify the values I want (particularly 4K-2160-29.97) as default for every new project. This is my standard for every project.

I have since moved to Mac and Davinci Resolve Studio18. Now, every time I start a new project in Davinci Resolve 18, the project defaults to 24FPS, HD1080 and other values that I have to change for every new project I create.

I cannot seem to find a Presets setting after moving to Davinci Resolve Studioo on MacOS, version 18.

What is the new approach for this?

Three dots? Can you elaborate?

He means the 3 dots icon at the top right corner of the project settings window

Ah, got it. I didn't notice it (clearly). I can get used to that. The old way felt clumsy. This seems cleaner. Thanks much!
