this is just a time saver. I do this manually already.

I've noticed since Shot crashes quite often for me, it is also corrupting my files on save. This isn't consistently of course, but as a precaution I save incrementally. ie. mouse_01, mouse_02, mouse_03 etc.

For all that aren't aware, Shot is Not the only software that crashes, and other powerful software has this feature for this very reason. If the software gets some sort of ailment during saving....your file is toast. After Effects and 3dsMax both have increment on save options and I use them frequently. They Also both have autosave, now by default. That might be a good lesson also. In fact, the method and location for those might be something to take from also. 3dsMax's autosave was Terrible for quite some time in that it actually was the cause of most of it's crashes. Ooops.

A hotkey for this would be nice. AfterEffects' hotkey is Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S.
Yeah, it's a twisted handful, but it's nice to be consistent.

Hi Andy - This is on our list :-) (both incremental and auto save)
