PVRGeoPOD Configurations

Configurations are used to group and save collections of export settings in PVRGeoPOD

PVRGeoPOD includes support for custom configurations, which are groups of settings that can be saved and reused to speed up the file export process.

The configurations section (shown below) is available at the left hand side of the interface.

Setting a configuration as active

When a configuration is active, it means any export tasks run by PVRGeoPOD will use the setting of that configuration.

If multiple configurations have been created and a specific one needs to be chosen from the list for a particular export task, it is possible to switch to the required configuration and make it active.
To do so:
  1. Identify the desired configuration in the list under the configurations section.
  2. Right-click the configuration. This will open an action menu.
  3. From the menu, select the option Set as [Current]. This will then set the chosen configuration as active and will appear as the first item in the list, prefixed with the [Current] tag. All of the export setting will then change to match the settings of the current configuration.
