    Hi,

    just wondering what people's thoughts on # of levels of Undo you use.

    What are the pros and cons to having many levels and having few levels?

    thanks

    I do the max (can never be too safe). The cons is that it eats memory/cache I think.

    so having too many undo's could technically harm FCP performance?

    99 i think....
    if you F upped that bad, then you can just recall one of the auto saves. I set my auto save to every 5 mins.

    I use 99 mainly because FCP counts almost everything, even just moving the playhead, as a 'action'.

    Yes, but I wouldn't worry about it unless you were using something along the lines of a G4.

    I'm always set to 99 levels. With today's computers, I'm not even sure why this is even a setting. It should be default.
