Start Compositing / Start Editing (Resolved)

edited November 2015 in Express Support


In Hitfilm 3 Pro I always end in the edit workspace no matter if I click on "Start Compositing" or "Start Editing". If I manually choose the compositing workspace everything is fine.

I just upgraded to Hitfilm 4 Pro and see the same behaviour.

Is this a known bug? Am I doing something wrong? Or is this supposed to be like that?

Best wishes,

    The workspace setting is sticky based on what you were using. It does not change based on if you open the NLE timeline or a composite timeline. So switch your workspace as necessary. I define my own slightly different edit and comp workspaces.

  • OK. Thank you. I can live with that :-)

  • The main difference between start editing vs start compositing is just if you default to the editor timeline or into a Composite Shot 

  • In Options you'll also find a setting to save your interface layout into your project files. This might be useful for storing a custom layout per project, so that if you have an edit-heavy project or a comp-heavy project it'll automatically be set up correctly when you open.
