A while ago I created "template" files for myself, one for each resolution and framerate I use. I set these files to read-only, and placed them in my "templates" folder on my desktop (Actually, in a Hitfilm subfolder--other subfolders exist for Vegas, etc...).
My templates contain two Composite shots. One is a blank, because the first thing anyone does in Hitfilm is either load media, or create a composite shot.
The second Composite Shot is the clever bit: I have text layers set up to use this comp is a notepad. I can type notes for myself on what links to what, which composites and embeds drive whatever effect, etc...
If I were to build a template, I would have a "readme" file integrated into the project.
So, you know, I thought maybe someone else would find the ideas useful. :-)DOWNLOAD UTILITY TEMPLATES: https://www.dropbox....t Templates.zip
