    I might have an event that needs 18 FB4s. What do I need in a computer to run this many FB4s.

    A normal laptop would do. You will need BEYOND for that many outputs. A reasonable graphics card would help. 4Gb+ of memory. duo core+, Onboard ethernet card.
    Nothing really fancy.

    If you run into trouble, you can open up the performance tuning panel (tools >> performance tuning) and switch between those settings.
    Also sometimes it helps to disable ERP, depending on the hardware.

    Note, this requires BEYOND 3 build 965 +

    Send me a message if you do not have this version.

    I talked to Justin a long time ago about this. He said the more FB4s the more powerful computer you would need. Are there limits.
    I have Beyond Advanced.

    As BEYOND continuously is evolving, "limitations" shift. If you buy an up to date laptop, it already contains better hardware.
    If you want to be further future proof, you could take a laptop with I7, ssd makes sense, Dedicated graphics card. .

    BEYOND Advanced has a limit of 24 controllers
