Project Folder (Advanced)

    This section covers the structure of a ShotPro Project Folder. This is not needed in most cases and is only provided for those who are curious or anxious to learn about the inner-workings of ShotPro.


Note: All Projects end with the .shotpro suffix. This is to indicate to ShotPro that it is indeed a ShotPro Project.


Note: Any extra files and folders that you place into the Project Folder will be ignored by ShotPro.
