General

Enabling "Start Director on startup" will automatically launch Pixotope when starting the machine.

Name and color

Display name

Set a display name for this machine. The windows machine name is used if nothing is set

Display color

To better differentiate the different machines in a multi-machine setup, display colors are set for each machine.

  • The display color for a Client machine can be overridden

  • The display color for a Server machine can, for consistency reasons, not be changed (pink)

Display colors are only used in multi-machine setups.

Network adapter

This network adapter is used for communication between Pixotope machines (only Server role).

Local storage

The show files of this machine are stored in the local storage folder. When running as a client, the local storage/shows are not in use.
