Activity Forums Media 100 ColorFX presets gone

  • ColorFX presets gone

    Posted by Larry Evey on July 26, 2019 at 12:35 am

    The many presets I had saved in the ColorFX window are gone. The base presets are still there. I’ve made no recent changes to my OS or updated anything lately. Running M100 v2.1.7 with Mac OS 10.11.6

    A few years ago this happened and I was able to restore them. Can someone refresh my memory on how to get these saved ColorFX preferences back.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Hello Larry.

    Did you solve this yet?

    I shared the question on the Facebook Group and Jaeson Koszarsky chipped in with the following:

    Media100 stores some information in the Library/Application Support/Media 100 folder on the system drive. Try restoring effects info from a time machine backup.

    Searching this forum, I also see back in 2015, Floh wrote:

    You should find it in YourHomeFolder->Library->Preferences->Media 100 Suite Preferences->Media 100 ColorFX Sets. This is a single file containing all your saved ColorFX presets.
    The full context of that thread is here:

    I’m running an older MacOS (10.9.5) so it may be somewhere else on your system, yet this is where I found mine:

    Obviously if you’ve lost your presets, it may not be there, =S. But if you have a backup of the file from a hard drive back up, putting your former preset file in that folder, may bring your former presets back.

    The Library folder can sometimes be hidden on modern MacOS, so you may need to toggle showing the library folder.

    Andrew thanks for sharing my request with the facebook group.

    My issue solved itself!

    I restarted the computer twice, and nothing changed. But the opening and closing of two different projects in someway kicked the ColorFX preferences back into sync and now everything is in the window….INCLUDING the new ones I had created when I could only see the base set. Very strange indeed.

    Many thanks for reaching out, you’re an awesome resource!

    Super happy to hear you resolved it, =),
    and all it took in the end was opening and closing projects, =D.

    Thanks for your kind words.
    I was just drawing on Jaeson and Floh there really.

    And thanks for returning to share the solution, =D.
    You’re adding to our community’s collective knowledge, =D.
