The question was clear to me when reading Joelson-Forte's first post and this without adding question mark . Grazie had a bad sleep ? Since Magix claims to follow this forum , both Magix and forum members might explain why presets are being removed .
I can only guess. Only the old SD based PAL and NTSC presets were removed. Maybe because them are rarely used these days. Actually I don't miss them,.
A way to recall is to use that "adopt to media" button at the upper right corner of the Project Properties window to let the Project Properties automatically adopt to the media property of a selected media clip. Then save that new preset. So you are back to a certain preset in a fraction of a minute.
@wilvan oooh you’re such a Card! 🙃 And you too haven’t asked a question, except the only question was at showing concern about my sleeping patterns. Now, @wilvan convert your last very clear statement to a question.
His tip was the first thing I thought to do when I realized that change. But I had to rule out the possibility that it might be a timely problem here on my machine. Now that I know it was a planned change I'm going to have to adapt to it. Thanks!
I guess the standard templates are hard-coded into the program and not available to copy from one version of Vegas to another.
Custom project properties templates are in the registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sony Creative Software\Vegas Pro\10.0\Metrics\VideoProProfiles but unfortunately old custom templates cannot be migrated to VP16 by a registry import/export operation.
I will also miss the standard definition PAL and NTSC templates, as I also still use these formats. I also think by now that these templates should come as standard, as they are such common formats:
Nice work Joelson! I would be interested to get this, preferably as a .reg file rather than a .dll. Personally I would only add the few missing templates that I am likely to use, but your file would give me a head-start. It could also be added as an FAQ post, as I expect this subject will arise frequently.
