The Preferences pane allows you to choose your preferred settings for cineSync 5.
These settings are remembered each time cineSync 5 is opened and don't need to be reset unless there is a change.
There are seven tabs along the top of the preferences window: General, Playback, Network, Offline License, Audio, File Transfers, and Shortcuts.
General - a combination of various different settings.
And at the bottom, you can set/change your Saved Frame Location.
Playback - For more info about the Playback settings, see the Frame Playback article.
Network - Here, you can add details if you are trying to connect to our cineSync servers via a Proxy Server and adjust your alternate server settings.
Offline License - Offline or Local License settings.
While the majority of features in cineSync 5 are available for free in the standalone player, there are a few features that require a cineSync Pro account.
These features include:
- Integration with ShotGrid
- Integration with file transfer options, including Amazon S3 and AliCloud
- HDR support
- SDI output
If you have a cineSync Pro account and you are interested in trying the above features, please go to ‘cineSyncPlay’ menu ‘Preferences’ ‘Offline License’ and send us (via email@example.com) your ‘Host id’ code, along with your account details, and we will provide a license that will enable all Pro features by default, with, or without an internet connection.
Our team will then get back to you with a license file that you can then add to your filesystem using the same window.
Audio - Separate track location for frame playback.
File Transfers - See more in the AWS S3 & AliCloud Integrations article
Shortcuts - See more in the ‘Keyboards Shortcuts’ article
