    But if you use Layouter to save your presets, you can only use 1 at a time. If you add another preset made from Layouter, it will overwrite the first one.

    Also if the clip media being affected does not match project dimensions, then the clip's layouter is already scaling the source to "fit". Applying the transform in this case will be applying additional math to the pixels and therefore degrading the image, especially if you are enlarging the picture.
    In these cases I prefer to use layouter, remember that the Layouter can also be saved as a Current User Preset.

    I am often asked about when to use Layouter and when to use Transform. If I am doing a one time move or clip manipulation, I use Layouter. If I remotely think I may save it as a preset, or I think I may need to do multiple moves, I use Transform.

    Thanks for help

    Hello:
    This filter is one of the most useful. With it you can often avoid nested sequences. I use it very often.
    Anton has already mentioned an example above.

    Regards kurt

    Maybe that helps - kurt

    the Transform filter can be found in your filter panel and acts the same as layouter, but can give benefits to layouter by applying moves within moves etc.

    Interesting thread
    In the FILTERS list is Transform. It works like layouter BUT as a filter. The advantage is it can be used more than once in a clip or in a Chrominance filer etc.
    I think it is widely agreed that for straightforward applications, Layouter is just fine.

    thanks

    Thanks, this has worked. Of course, I was hoping for a way to just export the presets I already had in the layouter, but this worked just fine. Thanks for the help and the tip on using the transform filter.

    One possibility would be:
    - Information palette > Right-click on Layouter > Save as User Effect.
    - Effects palette > Right-click on this User Effect > Export.

    PS was faster!

    I would put all of the custom made presets into a folder in the Effects tab. Then Right click and choose export and save to an external drive or network. On the new machines, go to the Effects tab and to the top Effects folder. Then right click and Choose Import and navigate to where you saved the previous folder.
