The Launcher Window

The Launcher window displays the current version of the software, which can be left-clicked to open the official CARMA website in an internet browser window. It also provides buttons to open the three main CARMA windows. These windows will be explored in detail later, but an overview is as follows:
  • The Collect window allows users to collect ratings of multimedia files and save annotation files
  • The Review window allows users to view and compare multiple saved annotation files
  • The Configure window allows users to customize various aspects of the software to suit their needs
The Launcher window will stay open in the background after one of the other windows is opened. This means that users can open multiple windows at once (e.g., one Collect window and one Review window or two Review windows). However, this can cause problems with VLC media player on some computers and is not recommended. Additionally, changes made in the Configure window will only be reflected in windows that are opened after the changes have been saved. For best results, only have the Launcher window and one other window (i.e., Collect or Review or Configure) open at any given time.
