Preference Manager for Final Cut Studio

preference_manager_icon.pngPreference Manager is a free application that  lets you trash, lock, backup and restore Final Cut Studio preference files.  User preference files can sometimes cause problems or files to become corrupted.  Preference Manager allows you to trash corrupted preferences and keep backups of working preference files in order to quickly restore your settings.  And not only does it restore your preference files, but it will store keyboard layouts, button bars, column layouts, window layouts, user plug-ins, and Compressor settings and destinations.  Backups are stored in a single self-contained file, allowing you to easily copy them from one machine to another.  What a great tool for the editor who travels from edit bay to edit bay!  And you can have unlimited backups.  So you can transfer your settings from one machine to another, back up to a "cloud based" storage, send the file by email, and save it to a USB thumbdrive. 

preference_manager_screensh.png Preference Manager is especially helpful when multiple editors are using one system, as they each may have different preferences they use.  Additionally, preference settings can be linked to a particular project, so that each time that project is opened, the specific preference settings for that project are kept intact.  Settings can be catagorized and locked as well.  Preference Manager works for all the applications included in Final Cut Studio, as well as for Final Cut Express.  You can download the free application from Digital Rebellion's website, as well as a handy step by step guide to trashing preferences and restoring.
