Change to default project settings

PostFri Nov 17, 2017 1:03 am

Hey Guys,

Whenever I start a new project I need to go into project settings and change them to suit, is there any way to change the default settings so that it's all set when I start a new project?

Thanks

John.

You can save different project configs as presets. Pages 64-84 in the manual.

I go a step further and save empty "Project Templates" for specific frame rates and types of formats, like a 1080i commercial vs. a 4K 23.98fps feature. This way, I can have all my bins, timeline structures, prefs, settings, frame rates, window sizes, color spaces, broadcast-safe clips, and so on all setup in advance. I open one of these, do a Save-As with the new project name, and start working.

You can also import the blank template from a saved .drp and then right click on that template in the Project Manager window to load the settings into the current active project.
