I deleted one of my projects by accident. The project still exists in the render queue and I can re-render it from there. Is there any way to get back my project from the render queue?
@panospc Seems I was wrong, my mistake! Apparently HitFilm creates a snapshot of the project when added to the render queue that is located in the snapshot folder you can find in Options. Perhaps you can find something useful there to recover your project?
Edit: It's worth noting this isn't just a project file, so I really don't recommend messing about with it since it's unlikely you'll be able to fully recover the project. My initial comments on backing up are still relevant.
I don't think so. @TheBenNorris confirm?
Do you have AutoSave on?
Maybe look there if you do?
@panospc Unfortunately @Triem23 is correct. The render queue is just a list of projects and the paths to them and such, so if the project does not exist then the render would fail if you get to that point.
Unfortunately that's also not how the auto-save works @Andy001z , that would be more of an "auto-backup" feature which has been requested a few times. On any successful save, all auto-saves for that project are removed, so unless the software crashed OP would be unable to get the project back this way.
OP, I highly recommend backing up your projects regularly, also, if you deleted the project with just "delete" and not "shift+delete" the project would be in the recycle bin would it not?
@TheBenNorris I did the search I looked through all 4 pages of thread for Hitfilm features and nothing is currently listed for Auto-Backup of any kind. So I have raised a new one.
@TheBenNorris I have the impression that Hitfilm makes a copy of the project somewhere else when you add it to the render queue.
You can try this:
Create a new project and save it, add it to the render queue, close Hitfilm and delete the original project from the hard disk, open Hitfilm again, go to the render queue and render, the project will render normally without any errors which means that a copy of the project is stored somewhere else.
