General Settings

The “General Settings” dialog contains various settings for the general behavior of the application. For settings concerning the current project see Project Settings

General Tab

Automatically Freeze Viewers Not Focused (Perfomance)
Viewers that are not currently focused will not be refreshed. Only the active focused viewer is refreshed. To refresh an inactive viewer simply click the title bar of the window to activate it. This option optimizes performance considerably.

Automatically Update Frozen Viewers
Viewers that are automatically frozen will be updated at an interval of a few seconds.

Conserve CPU When Application Is Not Focused
To enable keyboard navigation and animations GeoScene3D uses an internal clock which generates CPU load. When this option is checked this internal clock is turned off when the application looses focus or if the user is inactive. Note: If animations are running the internal clock will not be turned off and CPU performance will not drop when the application looses focus.

Automatically Round New Scene Extent
The coordinates of a new scene extent is rounded to the nearest whole number as described below.
If the extent of the scene is 0-10 meter, no rounding occurs, if the extent is 10-100 meter, rounding to the nearest meter, if the extent is 100-1000 meter, rounding to the nearest 10 meter, if the extent is above 1000 meter, rounding to the nearest 100 meter.

Show Object Color In Object Manager
If selected, the color settings of the objects are visible in the Object manager.

Multi Threading
Uses multiple CPU cores when possible

Trim Process Memory Before Saving
