Presets Pane

The Presets pane of Motion Preferences contains presets for project settings. In this pane,
you can choose defaults, as well as create, modify, and delete settings. The default project
preset determines the settings assigned when you create a project. You can change any
of these settings while you are working by selecting the Project object in the Layers list,
then clicking Properties in the Inspector.

After a default project is set in this pane, all new projects opened from the Project Browser
are created with this setting (unless you choose another option from the Preset pop-up
menu in the Project Browser).

Project Preset list:

Displays the current list of presets. The checkbox to the left of each

name identifies the default preset. The column on the right shows which presets are
locked. Locked presets cannot be modified. You can duplicate a locked preset and edit
the copy.

Default checkbox:

When this checkbox is selected, the default project setting is used for

new projects. Check a different box to select a new preset.

Summary box (not labeled):

To the right of the Project Preset list, the Summary box

displays details of the selected preset.

Add button (+):

Click the Add button (+) to display the Project Preset Editor dialog and
