This will be what new users will find, the error that some have already
reported as a bug.

I have completely deleted Cinelerra, I have done an installation from the
last git, I have deleted the .bcast5 folder, I have started Cinelerra and
tried to do a batch render.

Precisely for this reason my friend stressed that it was important that
this option was disabled by default, it was only to change a 1 to a 0. If I
remember correctly ...

What happens that now I do not remember where this change was and I am
afraid to continue abusing my friendship with him because he is a very busy
person with work and family.

My honest opinion.
I still think we're giving new users a bad impression of Cinelerra by
keeping a few options in a batch rendering window that only very few users
currently use. Some options that do not make any sense in a window of this
type, something that has always been done with a save as, which is an
option that does not require any Dangerous flag.

Another option would be to leave the window as it was before all this
matter, make the option "warn if it does not match ..." is disabled by
default and the dangerous button what it does is a copy of the current file
loaded in the EDL path adding a number to this new copy of the xml, and
automatically reflect this change in the EDL path. In this way everything
remains the same as before, the Dangerous flag is not necessary and the
wizard stops being dangerous and automatically makes the "save as" and
stops being a dangerous option for new users and this mode is satisfied.
work for former users who made use of this feature. And most importantly,
no one is going to lose their job due to a wrong click. I don't want to
think about how the faces of these lovers of danger with their strange and
dangerous way of working, if they press this option without having
remembered to manually change the name in the EDL route.
