582 Save Project does Save Project As...


New member
In 582 when I do a Save Project (Ctrl-P), it does a Save As...

I don't know if it makes a difference but I use TVAP which peforms a QSF before the project file is created via Comskip. TVAP creates the new mpeg file with a new filename (_QSF is appended) so the video file and project filenames are different.

The project name that's populated in the Save As File name field is the video filename ( with _QSF). I remove the _QSF and it asks me if I want to replace the project file, I say Yes. Then for "good measure" if you want to call it that, the Save As dialog box comes up a second time. This time the File name field is blank so I highlight the project filename from the list then click Save. I'm asked if I want to replace the file again and say Yes.

TVAP continues on its way to create the final mpeg file (Save Video As).

I don't think this is a TVAP issue but rather the new Save code in 582 because I didn't have a problem saving projects in earlier versions.

We broke something with the project save filename in 582. Has been fixed for 583. Sorry about that.

Installed 583. It's still not quite right (or as it was prior to 582).

Doing Ctrl-P is still bringing up Save As... The video filename not the project name is showing in the File name field. But it's not asking the second time - that's good.

Remember, I'm using TVAP so the video file name and the project name are different.
