This menu item allows either to create a blank experiment or to create an experiment from the existing template.


This menu item gives access to built-in experiment gallery as well as the online experiment gallery.


NameDescriptionDefault settings
Cleanup Period (days)All the data collected with EventIDE is automatically stored and can be accessed through Run History. The cleanup period is the time period when the application gives notifications to delete all run history and associated data to prevent low disk space.30 days
Open last file on startupIf "true" is selected, the application will automatically load the most recently edited experiment at startup.True
Checking for updates:Defines the period of auto-checks for application updates.Once a week
Notify on runtime errorsIf "true" is selected the application gives a notification after non-critical run-time errors and warnings.True
Monitor selection

Relevant properties filterDefines the filtering mode for the property panel. If the filter is on, only the relevant properties of objects are shown in the first selection. If the filter is off, all the properties are shown, which can result in slower GUI performance during the selection of the properties.True


This menu item allows to enable gamma correction of the monitor. Enable gamma correction, if you want to linearize the RGB-to-luminance mapping for the stimulus monitor. The gamma correction is estimated automatically once you specify the actual non-linear gamma profile of your monitor. There are two ways to specify the gamma-profile:

  • You can empirically measure and build the monitor profile for each of the RGB levels and then copy normalized values into the monitor gamma profile.
  • Alternatively, you can generate an approximate monitor profile with custom arguments of the power function. If enabled, the gamma correction (will be automatically estimated and applied at the start of every experiment in the full-screen mode).
