"Display Clone" Tab


Clone-Mode on Startup

-If set to TRUE, DisplayClone will attempt to mirror to a second monitor immediately.

-If there is no suitable second display connected, then DisplayClone will enter Clone-Mode as soon as one is connected after the program startup.


Show Mouse

-If TRUE, the mouse cursor will be shown on the cloned display.


Show Mouse Frozen

-If TRUE, the mouse cursor will be shown in Display-Freeze toggle. (This setting overrides "Show Mouse" in normal clone behavior)


Show Performance Stats

-If TRUE, speed statistics are shown on the cloned display of the achieved framerate and frametime.

-Keep in mind that your computer will only be able to render so many frames per second and setting too high a target-FPS may actually hinder performance.

-DisplayClone copies the cloned display through system-memory in order to work across different display adapters and for maximum compatibility.



-You will probably want to disable this option once you have configured DisplayClone, and before actually using it in a presentation.  (as it may otherwise distract from your presentation)


Target FPS

-The framerate that DisplayClone will attempt to output to the mirrored display.  20 FPS is a realistic target in most cases.

-Setting too high of a value usually will not hurt performance, but it should be noted that higher framerates will increase system bus load (especially at high resolutions).


Capture Method

-DisplayClone can use multiple capture methods.

-Generally GDI capture method should provide the best compatibility, yet you may find you have better performance with certain hardware using DirectX capture, or vice-versa.


Scaling Mode

-Aspect Ratio will stretch the image, while making an effort to not distort it.

-Stretch to Fit maximizes the size of the cloned display with no regard to distortion.
