StudioPlus Finale Overview

NOTE: This feature is available in the Professional and Enterprise versions of both Spectra and myStratus Desktop.

StudioPlus Finale is a render and printer server available as a separate application from Spectra/myStratus Desktop. StudioPlus Finale
 can take sessions, invoices, or production orders that reach a specific status and automatically render out the images to a folder, or to create a digital download link and (optionally) print them. 


The StudioPlus Finale Server should only be run on one designated workstation.
