    same as source export option

    Is it possible to get the "same as source" export option back when exporting a simple quicktime?

    Or at the very least would it be possible to have the export frame rate automatically set to the same frame rate as the project frame rate that you are currently working in by default?

    The problem I was having is that the exporting frame rate setting seems to memorize the last frame rate a quicktime has been exported no matter what project frame rate you are currently working in. For example I was dealing with two projects at the same time last week, one was 23.976 fps and the other one was in 25 fps. So when I exported a quicktime in the 23.976 fps project I didn't realize at first that the exporting frame rate was still set to 25 fps, which to me doesn't make a lot of sense and I took it for granted that when exporting a quicktime at least the frame rate would automatically be set to the projects frame rate but obviously I was wrong and I only realized it afterwards that the quicktime I was about to send to the sound designer had the wrong frame rate.

    It would be really cool to have this "fixed" :-)

    Re: same as source export option

    Quicktime is officially dead. It was based on 32 bit code and officially replaced (by Apple) with AV Foundation.

    If you're on a PC with WIn 10 or 11 (which still supports 32 bit applications), you can still install the QT libraries to maintain backward compatibility with older projects/versions of Media Composer (eg. 2018.12.15) which still has SAS, but no such luck with any Mac OS after Mojave.

    If you made export presets in MC with the correct frame rates, you wouldn't need to check your settings for every export.

    But it does require you to create presets for every frame rate you may work in. How many times do you really need a frame rate conversion upon export? I wish there was a "Project Rate" option, which would append the project's frame rate as the export frame rate.

    Yes, that's exactly what I meant.

    The frame rate in the export window should always be automatically set to the project’s frame rate by default so that you cannot accidentally create an export with a different frame rate.

    And for everyone who really wants their exports to have a different frame rate there could be an option that you need to actively check/uncheck first in order to manipulate the frame rate. Sort of like a safety precaution.
