Timer Check Frequency
How often Vixen should look at the time to see if a scheduled item should be running.
A smaller number could have an effect on computer performance, but will increase the precision of item start times.
A larger number will decrease the accuracy of scheduled item start times, but will affect performance less.
Preferred Sequence Type
Determines which sequence type should be the default in various options in the program.
For this setting, choose the sequence type you use most.
If the box here is checked, Vixen will automatically shut down the computer at the specified time.
For example, this setting could be used to shut off the show computer after all programs are finished for the night.
If this box is checked, Vixen will not connect to the internet when you start Vixen to see if a newer version is available.

Reset controller at end of sequences
If this box is checked, Vixen will turn all outputs on a controller off after a sequence is finished playing.

Log Path - sets where to save the log file.
If "enable background sequence" is selected, the background script that you chose will run when no other items are running.
