ANOTHER cool tool for FCP released today, EditGroove. This bit of software manages preferences and user settings for multiple users…on one machine or across a network. If you are working on one machine one day, then move to another, you can load your keyboard layouts, your preferences (including levels of undo, frequency of autosave, favorite effects) onto that machine as well. Pretty darn cool for those of us in multi-editor environments, and for those who have several editors that share one machine.

Oh, and it trashes preferences, restores saved preferences, and can recover accidentally deleted preferences. Nice.

(Man, all of these applications to do all of these small things that Avid does out of the box…and Avid is affordable now, and stable, and fun to work with…really makes one take a very hard second look at Avid.)
