Having an issue where if I add a composition to the render queue, it defaults to the

Instead of the default custom 'Delivery' preset. (regardless what preset I use as default, it won't work)

My project is on the 'Desktop', AE has writing permissions, using AE 22.4 and Montery 12.4.


The reason why this is getting bothersome, you can't select all render queue'd compositions and change the 'output to' on all of them simultaneously. This is only possible with the 'output module' and 'render settings'.

So when I add 10 compositions to the render queue, I have to manually change every 'Output to'.


To add,

When I manually change the 'output to' to the folder I want without using any preset,



and then duplicate the render queue item, it shows 'not yet specified'...

I'd like AE to use my default setting, why else would it be called default.
