    Auto Save Vault Question

    EdwurdAdam Level 1

      I am working in Premiere Pro CS 5.5

       

      I opened up a New Project in Premiere Pro CS 5 and I changed my Workspace to how I wanted it to look. I also Changed some of the Prefererencs.

       

      In the Project Panel I created some Bins (Folders) and I named them.

       

      I then saved the Project as "Premiere Pro CS 5.5 Template." (I did this so I would not have to make these folders or make any changes to the setup everytime I opened up Premiere Pro and started a project) This is my Template

       

      I saved it to a Hard Drive.

       

      When I want to start a new project, I create a folder for this new project, and I copy and paste my template Project File into that new folder. I then rename the Premiere Project file to the name of the new project I am starting.

       

      I open the new project by Double Clicking on the newly named  Premiere Pro Project file. Premiere Opens up fine. I change my Scratch Disc to the folder of my new project.

       

      This seems to work ok except for one thing.

       

      My "Autosave folder" does not come with it. Why?

       

      Do I have to copy that over to the new project as well?

       

      Does it make it automatically after I set my scratch disc?

       

      Do I have to import footage and wait 15 minutes to Auto Save the first time?

       

      Thanks in advance

          I opened up a New Project in Premiere Pro CS 5 and I changed my Workspace to how I wanted it to look.

          You should also save your custom layout this way:

          Window>Workspace>New Workspace...

          name and save.

           

          The practice of using a 'template project' is a good one...

          I have done the same thing for years.

          I change my Scratch Disc to the folder of my new project.

          I would skip this and leave it in the same location for all projects.

          My "Autosave folder" does not come with it. Why?

          Probably because you have not waited long enough for autosave to run.

          Once it does, it will automatically create a directory in the folder

          where your project resides.

          More on the 'template project' idea:

           

          I go a step further and create a project template folder with

          subdirectories and files (like slates, etc.) I commonly use for each job.

          I duplicate the entire folder + contents and rename for the new job.

            I would open the template project and then do a 'Save As' with the new project name and in the new folder.

              This is also my general workflow, when working with a "template Project."

                Premiere Pro will create an Autosave folder for any project in the same folder as that project.  There are no user options on this one.
