Specified Area

With it, you can move or reduce the area that media is drawn to, leaving the outer area black. This setting is only used if the Placement setting is set to Display Device.

 

Embedded Aspect Ratio

When Placement is set to Presenter Window, this setting lets you specify which aspect ratio to use for the emulated device.

 

Use GPU

This setting specifies whether or not the GPU will be used to render slides. There is little reason to disable this setting and should only be disabled if directed to do so by technical support. Some features of SongShow Plus are not supported if the GPU is not used.

 

Transparent Base

This setting is used specifically for systems with DeckLink video cards for text-over-live video support. There is no other reason to enable the transparent base.

 

Minimize Window

This setting specifies what to do when the Presenter Window (the main window for SongShow Plus) is minimized. By default, all child windows, including display windows, will also be minimized. By specifying no, the display windows will remain visible even when the main SongShow Plus window is minimized.
