How can I change the default render settings?


#1

I read that the default render settings have been changed in 1.3.11. But why don’t you let synfig users choose thier preferred default render settings or make Synfig remember the last used render settings?
Even a simple config file would be sufficient. Or is that already possible somehow?
Having to choose the correct render settings again and again is annoying and time consuming. Thanks.

Hi and welcome here :slight_smile:
You can of course change your render settings in the Preferences

Hi,
I tried to change the default render settings there. But at “Preferences”>“Render” only “Image Sequence Separator String”, “Navigator renderer” and “WorkArea renderer” are available.
I need to change the default file extension (MP4 instead of PNG), “Target” (ffmpeg) and “Quality”:
https://wiki.synfig.org/Render_dialog

Even in the same session it resets back to PNG although a MP4 video was rendered before. I’m using version 1.2.2 win64.
