Using Project Templates

A Project template is useful for setting up Liquid Edition to handle various different types of projects, perhaps with a standard intro.

For example, you may want a wedding video to have the tracks ordered as shown in Figure 1.31. Saving a Project template means you only have to set this up once and then load it back in whenever you need it.

Creating a Project template will save the layout of the Racks and Folders, any media clips placed in these folders, and any media clips that are on the timeline, but it won't save the toolbar buttons that you may have added to the interface.

To save a Project template


Select File > Manage Projects > Save as Template (Figure 1.32).

Once the dialog box appears, choose a unique name and then click Save.


  • Templates must be saved to the default template folder inside the Pinnacle program group (Figure 1.33). If you don't save them to this location, Liquid Edition can't see them.

To open a Project template


Select File > New > Project (Figure 1.34).

Browse to the Pinnacle directory where the Project template is stored, select the one you want, and click OK (Figure 1.35).

  • If you can't see the template, you need to check if it has been saved in the default Pinnacle directory. If it hasn't, you can use Windows Explorer to locate the template and copy it to this location.
