Hi. I appreciate your tutorial, although I can't seem to get around the fact that Adobe seems to believe that you need 3 separate screens to set up your render. If you have ever used the very good but now defunct Autodesk Combustion, they incorporated all the render output info into a single window. So when you set up a render you opened a single window and made any adjustments in that window. Pretty much all the same information was there, and you could set anything up as your default render settings. But it was a SINGLE WINDOW. This triple window thing is silly and a waste of time. The defaults are handy if, like you stated, you are doing 50 of one kind of output. But I tend to go back and forth between DPX output and quicktimes. So it doesn't really get me anything to set a default because I still have to go through the three windows to adjust the settings.

I'm advocating for a single render queue window. That would save a bunch of time and be far less silly than it is now, IMHO.

Thanks for taking the time. Sorry about the rant.
