Chapter 2. Welcome to Final Cut Pro > Using Audio/Video Presets

Using Audio/Video Presets

A preset is a group of saved settings that are automatically applied any time you create a new project or sequence. The beauty of a preset is that you can configure all your settings correctly with a single selection, because these settings have already been tested with your video hardware and format.

In the Audio/Video Settings window, the Summary tab (Figure 2.39) displays the currently selected preset for each setting—Sequence, Capture, and Device Control, plus your External Video setting—that make up your current Easy Setup. If you need to modify your current Audio/Video preset settings, you can select a different preset from the pop-up menus on the Summary tab, or you can open the tab for the setting you need to modify and specify custom settings. Try to use the stock presets before you start tinkering with your settings. This section will explain how to choose, edit, and delete an existing preset and how to create a new preset. For detailed information on your settings options for the different types of Audio/Video presets, see “Specifying Sequence Settings,” “Specifying Capture Settings,” “Specifying Device Control Settings,” and “Using External Video Settings” later in this chapter.
