Saving a FirstLight project?

I saved my FirstLight project for a set of media files after configuring them how I wanted--however when opening the FirstLight project again, all the files are gone from the media bin and when I drag them back into the bin or re-import them, all my configurations are gone. What's the point of saving a FirstLight project file? What is it saving exactly?

Re: Saving a FirstLight project?

FirstLight project is just a file list, not configuration data (Active Metadata) is stored in the project (that wouldn't be a good idea -- but complex to explain way.) The A.M. is stored in folder pointed to by the registry.

The default location is

'db' is the current name of your database.

So like you corrections are no lost, rather you changed the default database path or database name accidentally.

I move my default location into Dropbox so my corrections are automatically shared with all my system (home and work.) See vimeo video on how to do this:
