Is there a way to have Preview Mode set to None by default?
Not directly. I recommend saving a blank "Template" file with your preferred view (and media bin) settings, and open Hitfilm by double clicking that to open the software.
This concept is discussed a bit more in detail 38 minutes into this tutorial.
Thanks for quick reply. I couldn't find anyone else who had posted this question so hence my post and to help others.
Your toot gave really good points and I will do as you suggested by start doing templates.
Pain its set to full by default. I will put it on the suggestions page as it will help most people get better performance by default rather that search for speed up tips later which I did.
PS: Nice to see your University has launched and in full swing. Look forward to watching them.
