[FEATURE] Save As Project Template

MikeLyons Posts: 5 Enthusiast

After a recent Film Sensei tutorial on creating template projects and launching from the desktop, it occurred to me that a feature allowing you to save a project as a template for future use when starting a new one would be a huge time saver.

I envision it like when starting a new Word document or a software development project and are prompted to select a document or project template.

I didn't see this exact request in a search so I apologize if it's a duplicate.

    I would like this too. There are lots of elements that I have to recustomize every time I create a project. I would like for that to be all done upon loading a template.

    Bumping. In theory, it should be pretty simple to save a regular HitFilm Project with a file extension that indicates it is a Template. If you open the template, HitFilm would see that its a template and ALWAYS use "Save As..." when going to save (if you need to modify the template, you can overwrite it in Save As). It would also be nice to be able to add your saved templates to the Home page.
