Nview Desktop Manager

The nView Desktop Manager is not mandatory but can be used along with Merging products.
Some remarks about the features available :

  • Windows spanning across multiple displays : works but creates a big resource increase for the video window (can potentially induce audio engine drop, use with caution).
  • Reposition dialog boxes : this feature will bypass the Merging software windows position.
  • Windows Transparency : should not be used, do not activate this feature.

Vertical Sync recommendation

Vertical Sync improves video display quality, especially on motion (see this article for details https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_tearing)
But it requires more resources, so if your system is already at the limit, you may consider disabling Vertical Sync (or setting it to half refresh rate - only availlable for Nvidia)
