different icons for "save video" and "save project".
So I don't have to use the File menu to actually know which is which.

The "save project" icon: add a paper symbol to the lower right of the icon.
The "save video" icon: add a film symbol to the lower right of the icon.

in QT:

2nd icon = Save a video file
5th icon = Save a project

or use the same green folder from the load and run a project icon:

on the floppy icon for save project file.
some distinction would be nice ;)


When i work fast i mix up those two icons regularly and hit the wrong one way too often. Quite annoying when you accidentally kill your custom preset settings.


The pictures of the icons are only 22x22, so it's not so easy. Nevertheless here are two suggestions (see the attachments). I've used the upper left edge instead of the lower right, because saving means putting something onto the floppy.

After copying these files to avidemux/qt4/ADM_userInterface/ADM_gui/pics following patch should use them:

I've tested the patch with r8033 up to r8041. It works and looks nice.
