This tab is for general settings.

Project folder: Remotely select the project folder on your media server.
The project folder is always created and hosted in the Data hard drive of the media server (D:), never in the remote. The D: drive contains all media files, shows, backup files, etc.
You can create several media folders within the same project folder.
When launching a new show for the first time, the application will automatically create several sub-folders (backup, dmx, isf, maj, show, temp, thumb, userinterface) for internal use.
Don’t place any media in these folders: they won’t be accessible via the Media tab.

Backup folder: Contains backup files

Show folder: Contains all show .xml files
Note that you can copy & paste a complete folder in an external disk and save it for later use (clone computer, backup, recovery, etc.).
We highly recommend creating a specific folder for each new project.

Display mode:
Select the way Modulo Player outputs images: by default, the display mode is full-screen and the application is launched in the primary (Windows) screen.
Select “windowed” only if you want to set up a device (ex: set up a sound card).
Choose “Fullscreen second screen” when you use the demo version and want to use the primary screen to launch the Modulo Player Remote and the Modulo Player Demo application on your second screen (like the external monitor on your notebook for instance).

Antialiasing option allows to smooth the edge and avoid jagged or stair-stepped lines on edges. Default value is x4.

Log level :
Default value is “none”. Only change this settings if the Modulo Pi support team asks you to.

Auto start Player:
Select Auto Start Player at Startup to automatically launch the display application when starting the server.
A few seconds delay is set between Windows start and the launch of the display to provide a reliable start of the application. It is selected by default.

Startup delay(s):
When “auto start player” is selected, you can then adjust the startup delay (if you have some extra device to load on your computer before launching the application, and to avoid the dongle not being properly detected).

S400 auto restore:
The setup of the AMD synchronization S400 is not persistant after a reboot or any other change (if you loose the synchronisation signal for instance).
If you have previoulsy saved the S400 setup on the server, you can activate this option to allow Modulo Player to restore the correct setting automatically.
See S400 setup page for more information.

When using a S400 card after a proper setup, use the framelock feature to allow a more accurate synchronisation between servers.
See S400 setup page for more information.

Mode 10 bits/Channel:
Enables a 10 bit workflow. You need to activate 10 bit support in advanced settings AMD when using a Windows 7 OS.
If 10 bits mode is activated, Apple ProRes mov file will be decoded using 10 bits/channel. This setting is also usefull when using an extra Modulo Player playing Quicktime uncompressed YUV10Bits or DPX with 12 or 16 bits per channels.

Multi user mode:
Allows several Modulo Player remotes to simultaneoulsy connect on the server (activated by default).

Mouse visible:
Mouse still visible when fullscreen if activated (disabled by default).
