EVF Settings

 

EvfIntervalInMs - Specifies the refresh interval of the live view display in milliseconds (default value 80). A smaller value will give a faster refresh rate. The maximum live view refresh rate will depend on the camera model and the speed of the computer. Please note that changing this setting may affect the timing of animated GIFs captured in video booth mode.

EvfFocusPeakingThreshold - Sets the threshold used for focus peaking in live view (default value 200). Please see the section on live view for details.

 

Photobooth Settings

 

PhotoboothJpegSaveQuality - The JPEG quality setting used when saving the JPEG copy of the printed output (default 90). Higher value give improved quality but will also increase the size of the files.

PhotoboothFasrResize - Uses a faster resizing algorithm when resizing images to create the print layout. The faster resizing algorithm may reduce the time it takes to prepare the photos for printing when running on slower computers but also reduce the quality slightly.

PhotoboothSuppressXML - Select this option to disable the saving of the XML summary file that is normally written after each photo booth shooting sequence.

PhotoboothSaveLayoutEvenIfRejected - Save the JPEG copy of the printed output even if the user rejects the photos in the print confirmation screen.

PhotoboothAfErrorMsg - Error message to display to users if the camera is set to AF and is unable to lock focus when taking photos.

PhotoboothTakingHideLiveView - Hide the live view display when the taking.jpg screen is displayed approximately 1 second before the camera takes each photo

PhotoboothTakingTimeBeforeRelease - Specifies when the taking.jpg screen should be displayed in milliseconds before the camera takes the photo. Setting this to 0 will use the default value which is to display the taking.jpg screen approximately 1 second beofre taking the photo.

PhotoboothCountdownDelayInMS - Adds an offset when calculating the time until the photo displayed in the countdown text. This can be used to compensate for the delay between the command to take a photo being sent to the camera and the time the photo is captured (see also PhotoboothShutterLag).

PhotoboothDisableLiveViewInReadyScreen - Select this to disable live view in the ready screen and only enable it when the countdown starts

PhotoboothAbortIfNoInput - Abort the shooting sequence and return to the ready.jpg screen if the "Email input at start of sequence" touchscreen keyboard option is used and the user does not enter anything

AllowOverlappingTouchscreenAreas - Allow touchscreen areas to overlap so that one touch can activate multiple actions. Please take care when using this options as overlapping some combinations of touchscreen actions may produce unexpected effects or could cause the software to crash.

PhotoboothShutterLag - Compensate for the camera's shutter lag (the delay from when the command to take a photo is sent to when the camera actually captures the photo). The delay is in milliseconds e.g. setting it to 500 will tell the software to send the command to take the photo half a second before the countdown timer reaches zero (see also PhotoboothCountdownDelayInMS)

PhotoboothPrintCounter - Sets the start value for the print counter that is decremented each time photos are printed (more details).

AllowEvfBrightnessAdjustment - Allow cursor up/down keys to adjust live view brightness using the shutter speed when using manual exposure mode and bank 1 or bank 2 camera settings

PromptToSavePrintLayoutInDefaultProfile - Prompt to save print layout in the default profile or most recently loaded profile after selecting the print layout editor from the main window

PhotoboothTapCountdown3Sec - Set the stills photo booth countdown timer to 3 secs if user taps the screen during the countdown. The countdown text is hidden if countdown is set to more than 15 secs e.g. you can set the delay before taking remaining photos to 30 secs to allow users time to change props and get ready for the next photo and then ask them to tap the screen for a 3 sec countdown or wait for the full 30 seconds to elapse (the countdown text will only be displayed for the final 15 secs of the countdown).
