Startup Parameters

Showimg accepts number of startup parameters.

-file [filename]

Specifies the default name of the image to be shown.


If set, the program assumes the given file name refers to set of sub images which should be composed to complete image, if possible. For example, network renderer subdivides image to a number of sub images to get the rendering job distributed to several threads / workstations. In case of system crash, this switch can be used for asking the program to read set of sub images rather than single image file.


Specifies custom plug-in folder from which the plug-in modules should be read. The default folder is 'Plugins' (in program's home folder).


This specifies a string to be used as a prefix for constructing box names. The default prefix corresponds to one used by Realsoft 3D's distributed rendering system.
