The Browser Inspector opens when a browser asset is selected in the Project tab. Please refer to the chapter "Context Menu - Project" if you would like to know how to create and work with a browser asset and which browser engine is used to render browser assets.

The Configuration tab > Resources (User) lets you set up an initial URL for new Browsers.
The Configuration tab > Resources (Global) lets you choose a frame rate for rendering Browsers.

If your displayed web page includes links you would like to click, please read the chapter about Layer Picking.

Folder and File ID
Set numeric virtual file and folder IDs for DMX, PB Automation and Widget Designer remote control and thumbnail exchange.

Press "Clear" to remove the virtual file and folder ID.

Enter a website's address that the browser should open, e.g.

Example for local hard disk: file:///C:/Christie/website/index.html
Example for remote hard disk: file://

This clears the browser cache which stores temporary information from the website including styles and images.

Please see the File Inspector for the options "Anisotropic Filtering", "FluidFrame", "Use Video Memory Buffers", "Texture Address Mode" and "Clip Color".

Additionally, the following options can be set in the file "tweak_config.txt" in the installation path, e.g. C:\Program Files\Christie\Pandoras Box 8.4.0\data\config.
