Project Properties

When you create a project, you specify a set of project properties—Resolution, Frame
Rate, Duration, and so on. You can change these properties at any time, even after you
add objects to the project.

The Properties Inspector lets you define the most essential attributes of a project. By
choosing different parameters, you can accommodate nearly any video or film format
you need to output to. These properties are the default settings used when you export
your project.

To edit the properties of an existing project


Do one of the following:

• Choose Edit > Project Properties (or press Command-J).
