How do you save in MM 2.0 express

Postby richdesign » Mon Sep 27, 2010 8:04 pm

Hey,

Just made the switch from VJ DMX to MM 2.0 express. Very nice . . .

One question (i'm sure there will be more soon, but for now)

How do you save your project? No save option under file. It saves your work when you close, etc. but I would like it if I could save anytime and also so I can move the file to another machine as a backup. I know the media files would have to be moved separately, but what about all those settings in MM?

thanks to anyone who can help.

Hi,

In MM Express everything is saved in .xml files in the folder "SimpleModeShow" of your selected media library.
So, the saved project settings are connected with your selected media library folder.

Thanks so much. I found the file.

Tell me if I'm thinking about this right.

to setup a backup machine, I could setup a show on one computer and move it to another by copying the entire media folder the that machine and then set that media folder (which has the xml files) as the root folder. Does that sound right? I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

also, I could work on two different shows on the same computer by switching root folders depending on what show I was working on.

Does it sound like I'm on the right track?

I wonder if there is a technical reason they don't have a Save and Save As options?

Yes, you are totally correct!

It was a choice, we felt that the stored settings belonged to the media library.
And the idea was, indeed, if you switch between shows, that you select an other media library.
