Understanding User, Project, and Site Settings

The Xpress Pro settings, all found on the Settings tab of the Project window (Figure 3.1), are grouped into three categories. Understanding how these groups of settings differ from one another is the key to understanding how Xpress Pro views settings and will help you navigate the myriad customizable features.

  • User settings: User settings address questions such as “What color do you want your buttons?” and “How are your windows arranged?”

    These settings are linked to the user profile you select in the User Profile Selection pop-up menu at the top of the Settings tab in the Project window. (For more information, see “Creating and Selecting a User Profile” later in this chapter.)

  • Project settings: Project settings address questions such as “Is the project NTSC or PAL?” and “Are you using drop-frame or nondrop-frame timecode?”

    These settings are tied to a particular project, and you may have different settings for different projects.

  • Site settings: Site settings address questions such as “Is your DV deck connected via FireWire or through the serial port?” and “Should the system automatically be connected to a LANshare when you launch Xpress Pro?”

    These settings pertain to your editing system's particular hardware and don't change unless you change your overall system setup.
