Your work works perfect, I have needed help to be able to pass the
information that you have put in your text file to the original files. I
don't know about programming. Once like this I have compiled and installed
the program and it has worked correctly.

Phyllis Smit should see this good work.

I do not know if there is a limit of files that are created, I have played
with this and I have created more than 100.
Is it possible to define the creation of these files with a limit?
For example 50 backup files, I think that with this figure anyone could
recover the project from it.

And now a proposal if it is not to abuse your programming knowledge.
Is it possible, for example, to create in the same folder where we have the
xml file two or three backup files?
This is very frequent in this type of application, Adobe makes 5 copies by
default, the oldest is deleted and a new one is added to the list. In the
application preferences you can choose the number of copies and how often
they are created. Even in a sudden shutdown the last backup can be more
recent than the project file if the autosave time is longer than the backup
time. Blender does this too.

It's just an idea, I don't like to abuse anyone's time, but something like
this would be wonderful at Cinelerra GG.

And then there is the problem of a BatchRender option that could be kept if
it does not overwrite the current file and make a copy of it, with a number
for example, in order to never lose our project due to a wrong click.

Thank you very much, and I repeat that they are only ideas, if you want to
do them it would be wonderful.
