You generate an Image or a Video. The media output dialog opens and you do not see your desired image. Instead, you see a single-colored area or a completely different picture.

When needed, pCon.planner provides the opportunity to add a company logo or other graphics to your images and videos. In the described situation, it is possible the function Show Logo is enabled. If the Size of the logo is still set at 100% (or bigger) and Transparent is disabled, the logo will be placed on top of your image.

The rendering times for different users vary in length on the same system. What options are there to fix this?

The differences in rendering times are often due to programs running in the background. This can vary for each user, as they may be demanding more or less of the operating system at one time.

Differences in rendering times can also be attributed to having the Windows option Run Program in Compatibility Mode enabled.
