Chapter 16. Output > Creating Templates

Creating Templates

You should save the settings you use most often as templates. This way, you can apply commonly used settings by selecting templates in the Render Settings and Output Module pull-down menus in the Render Queue window. Moreover, you can choose the most useful render settings and output module templates to serve as the default settings. You can even save templates as stand-alone files to move to other systems or share with other users.

To create a template:

1.
Do one of the following:

To create a render settings template, choose File > Templates > Render Settings (Figure 16.51).

To create an output module template, choose File > Templates > Output Module.

Depending on your choice, a Render Settings Templates or Output Module Templates dialog box appears.

2.
Click New in the Render Settings Templates or Output Module Templates dialog box (Figure 16.52).
