I know this has been requested before but hopefully you can consider.

It would really be great to be able to save a project with all files listed in the file browser as well as the working directory and settings for the specific project. I often work on many session including various calibration sets and various filters etc. It takes a lot of time and some concentration to make sure all is allocated to the right sessions/filters etc.  Two weeks later there is a new version of APP (Thank you for the great work) or I discover a new setting etc and I would like to try it out on a previous set of data. The process of loading many hundreds of files correctly again to try the new setting or creating new or better calibration files etc is would be so much easier of there were projects that we could just load, change the settings and rerun the integration.

 

Please consider?

Hi @Ianties,

Yes indeed, it has been requested several times. It's on my list, so it will come for sure 😉

Saving/loading projects and also saving/loading of all settings in all menus.

FYI, I gave a presentation to our Raleigh, NC Imaging club about APP and several people said the ability to do this - save a project - was something that was holding them back from trying APP.  

Cheers,

Rowland

Very good to know, thanks Rowland. Personally I wouldn't let that get in my way as it's producing some very unique things already, but when people do decide that to be the main issue, that's something that needs to be addressed.

I would really like this as I do a lot of multi-filter, multi session processing and as someone above mentions, it takes a great deal of concentration and time to load files correctly. 

Even just saving the Loaded Files would be a massive benefit - perhaps a good Phase 1 (Quick Win) of the Save Project change? 

On the same subject, it would be great if a report could be generated after loading files that would facilitate checking that the correct files had loaded.  

Checking is also hampered by there being no way (that I can find) to sort the file list on "Frame" - could this be added? I frequently find that, for example, the file list shows my Green lights with Reds in the middle. If I could sort by Filter and Session I coul dat least get them all together for checking.

Thanks

Jon
