Profiles

The Preferences panel features a Profile system which loads/saves settings for all settings in the Engine Preferences page with the exception of the Simulation settings.

These profiles allow you to define different profiles for different situations - for example, low quality/detail level settings for composition work, and high-detail settings for mixdowns and exports.

Click the Load/Save button to display the Load Preference Profile... and Save Preference Profile... functions - use the latter function to save the current settings as a profile. Use the former function to load a profile from any location on disk, or use the main drop-down menu to choose from the available profiles currently in the database.

prefs_profilez

The profile is also set using the BFD3 Setup Wizard, launched when using BFD3 for the first time or available at any time in BFD3's Help menu.
