Creating and opening Projects

Create a Project inside a Collection to store job metadata

Accessing projects

Every job belongs to a project. Every project belongs to a collection.
Before adding a new job, the project and collections need to be setup using the Project Browser.
Open the Project Browser by clicking the icon at the bottom of the main panel. Then click Open Projects and add or open a project as shown further down this page.

When a new job is added it uses the current project that is open in the Project Browser.
To use a different project, open the project in the Project Browser before adding the job.
Or to assign an existing job to a different project use the Source Browser as shown below.

Assigning a job to a different project

Open the Source Browser by selecting the job and clicking the Folder icon above the job table. Then click the Open Projects button to open the project panel.

Add a new project

Projects are grouped inside Collections.
Select an existing Collection or create a new Collection by clicking + below the Collection table and entering a Collection name.

Collections names could be clients, years, type of work or you can just have one collection for all projects.

Select a Collection and then click + below the Project table to create a new Project.
Enter the new project name. If working with camera footage select the usual frame rate and click OK. YoYotta uses the frame rate to flag off speed shots, but it's not critical to set this.

Open an existing project

Projects are grouped together in Collections. Select a Collection, then select a Project and click Open, or double click the project name.
If no Collection is selected then all projects will be shown. Once opened the Project name will change for that Job.
