Option to create a frame buffer is missing

I just loaded FPP 7.4 onto a clean Pi 4. I want to use it to only drive a virtual matrix. I tried to create a frame buffer overlay model, but that option does not appear when I try to add the model for the virtual matrix. I only see options for channel and sub-model. I did successfully create a channel model, but then when I go to create the output for the virtual matrix, it reports "There are no Pixel Overlay Models defined and no FrameBuffer devices available."


Nevermind, I figured it out. User Interface needs to be set for Advanced mode to manually create a frame buffer.


Did you plug your monitor/projector in as well around the same time?  The framebuffer button only shows if there is a framebuffer device available.


I did not have the HDMI plugged in. But the option to create a frame buffer did show up after I set the UI to advanced. I created the FB and just now plugged in the HDMI cable and put FPP in test mode and all works now.
