Timing options include various settings regarding the RDM timing preferences and request settings.

Go to the menu Preferences > Options... > Timing
[Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + O > Timing]

Start Options

Set up the options as explained below.
Restore the default settings via Defaults.
Confirm any changes with OK or Apply. Discard any changes via Cancel.



Sending Frame Time (ms) - Defines the minimum time interval between 2 RDM data packages on a DMX line in milliseconds [ms].
- If this value is set too low, hardware interfaces may receive too many data packages, which can result in overload.
- If this value is set too high, the maximum possible data transfer rate will not be reached, which can unnecessarily increase the time required to obtain RDM information and data.
- Is mainly defined by the used hardware interfaces. As such, it is recommended to choose the lowest common denominator across all connected interfaces.
[Valid values range from 25 to 1000. This option is set to 50 ms by default.]
Transaction Timeout (s) - Defines the maximum allowed time interval for RDM communication and transactions in seconds [s]. Transactions include the RDM request of the controller as well as the reply/response of the responder.
- Any response that is received after this interval will be discarded and cannot be assigned to the original request anymore.
- If this value is too low, all packages could be discarded in extreme cases.
- If this value is too high, responses may be assigned incorrectly to unrelated requests.
- The timeout correlates to the RDM Frame Time and the number of RDM devices connected to a single DMX port of a hardware interface. The higher the RDM Frame Time and the more devices are connected to a single port, the longer a response can take.
[Valid values range from 1 to 30. This option is set to 13 s by default.]
User Interface Update Interval (s) - Defines the time interval at which the software is refreshed in seconds [s]. This refers to how often the graphical user interface [GUI] is being updated and can display new and up-to-date information.
- If this value is too low, this may result in too many database queries. This, in turn, can lead to a high number of hard-drive access operations [which can decrease a drive's lifespan due to its maximum read and write cycles].
- If this value is too high, all or parts of the information that is shown in the software may be temporarily outdated and not up to date anymore.
[Valid values range from 1 to 3600. This option is set to 1 s by default.]
