Autosaves

Your autosave preferences can be set under Edit > Preferences > application > crashFile.

The crashFile gives you two options, numberOfActions and time, to choose how frequently you want an autosave of your current scene to take place.

1.   numberOfActions - specifies the number of actions before automatically saving the current project to a file from which the project can be restored after a crash.
2.   time - specifies the time in minutes before automatically saving the current project to a file from which the project can be restored after a crash.

Warning:  Setting either preference to zero disables the corresponding autosave trigger. If both are set to zero, no autosave files are created.

Note:  After an autosave file has been created another one cannot be saved until 15 seconds have past, even if the conditions set by numberOfActions or time are met.

Loading an Autosave File

To load an autosave file, launch Katana using the --crash command-line option, this opens the Katana Crashfile Selector dialog.

From here you can select the autosave you would like to Load. T

Note:  The most recent autosave is at the top of the list. You can see an example in the screenshot above.

If the crashed scene file had not yet been saved, Katana calls the resulting autosave 'Untitled'.
