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.

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