Creating your own bespoke settings in Amped Authenticate means that you can load specific filters and configurations, depending on the current investigation.

It’s a common issue, you may not need to run everything, all of the time. You may want to reduce the number of filters to speed up an initial preview of many images.

Authenticate allows this through the use of a .aas file.
