Tip #1638: Create a Default Motion Project Duration
Preset preferences control everything except project durations.
Here’s another Motion preference setting that can simplify your life.
When you create a new preset (Motion > Preferences > Presets), you can specify all sorts of different technical settings for your projects. This allows Motion to auto-configure projects quickly when you create new ones.
The only thing you CAN’T do from the Preset menu is set a default duration. That option is located in Motion > Preferences > Project. (See screen shot.)
Simply change the Project Duration in the Project pane to whatever you prefer for a default.
NOTE: Remember, you can always change this value when creating a new project using the Project Browser.
You can specify durations using either frames or seconds.
