I'm working on a photo boot installation for a client and trying to automate as many tasks as possible using an XKeys controller and Controller mate software.
An issue I'm having is that each time I launch Photokey Pro, I have to reassign the hot folder again. Is there any way to retain this selection?

I have to say, PhotoKey Pro 4 did an amazing job of removing the green screen background. The cloth has creases from shipping and everything was on default settings and the results were amazing. Nice Product FXHomies!

Thanks, its always great to hear from happy customers.

If you save a project, then the Hot Folder should be saved when you re-open the project. There isn't a way to automatically set the Hot Folder to be on every time you open the software. But, if You save a project and open that project every time you want to use the software, this would be entirely possible. The trick would be to remember to "Save As..." during each session, so you don't overwrite your template project.

That's an OK option and a great tip I can use. I can open a dummy project automatically at start up.
Thanks for the reply!
