Preference Manager 3.0 released - support for Avid, Premiere, FCPX and more

Earlier this week we released a brand-new 64-bit rewrite of Preference Manager, an essential tool for managing the user settings of your editing application. (We also released a new version of FCS Remover that supports Final Cut Pro X.)

The first change you'll notice is the redesigned user interface. Each task (trashing, backing up, locking, restoring) has its own tab which makes it more intuitive to use.

Another big feature is support for Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor 4, Avid Media Composer for Mac and Adobe Premiere Pro for Mac. Avid preferences can be managed on a per-user level if desired (see screenshot below).

The third big feature is the ability to selectively restore files within a backup. This is great for restoring one application's settings without affecting others.

We've prepared a short demo video that shows some of the new features:

Other new features include automatic backups, keyboard hotkeys and the ability to set a default backup - a backup that is known to be good that will be restored automatically when performing a QuickFix. The full list of new features is available here.

Preference Manager remains completely free and can be downloaded here. For more information on the new features, please see the user manual.
