Lighting Device Parameters - Export Saved List

Recommended Posts

After saving a custom Lighting Device Parameters list, where is it saved on my hard drive (macOS)? I need to perform a clean install due to VW performance issues but don't want to lose my custom sorting and field names. Thank you!

All the settings are are saved in XML file - you can find it in the user folder: \Plug-ins\Data\LightingDeviceParamsSavedSets.xml

You can easily find your user folder by going to the User Folders tab of preferences and selecting Reveal in Finder.


You may actually need to try a clean user folder, rather than a new application install. You can use the dialog to create a new, empty user folder, then restart VW.  If this helps, copy elements from your old folder to the new folder in batches, and see if you can pinpoint a file causing the slowdown.
