Does BorisFX ever see a day when .red files would contain the comp dimension data? It would be nice to open a project and have Red auto-size itself to the saved dimensions rather than having to do it manually. It would also be nice to be able to double click a .red file and have it open rather than starting the software first.

Steve,
The Comp size information does follow a .red file, as it's part of the project settings. Are you using RED as a stand-alone program, or as a plug-in for another Host? I ask because if you are using RED as a plug-in for another host, the project setting information (such as size and frame-rate) would be dictated by the Host's specifications.

Stand-alone. I should add this is version 3.0.4.050929. Is there something in Preferences that should be on?

I can start Red with a new project, see that Preferences is set to say 720x486 and then open a project that I know was set at 330x75 yet the comp size doesn't change as seen in Preferences.

Bump. Am I misinterpreting what's going on with the project size settings?

Steve,

I think part of your problem here is you are using Red 3.

You might want to do a test drive of Red 4,
