Show Control System: How do I disable hardware acceleration in Display Studio?

Topic

Hardware Acceleration 
  • This setting is enabled by default.  If it needs to be disabled, verify that it is disabled after updates. 
  • This setting covers the entire instance of Show Control.  It is not workspace specific. 

The option to disable is available because some operating systems cannot support Hardware Acceleration.  
⚠️Use caution: If unchecked, this will likely result in slower performance.  It is best to consult with Daktronics before proceeding.

  • Control System: Show Control version 4.2 or later
