In case of errors detection, e.g. blank mandatory fields, a red indicator appears specifying their number. Hovering the mouse pointer over the indicator displays a tooltip describing the problem(s).

In this dialog, CAS (Cinegy Archive Service) should be configured as well as general transcoding session parameters and Cinegy Archive database settings should be defined.
