Answer

- Motion reads its configuration parameters in the following sequence : (If the same parameter exists more than one place the last one read wins.)
1. Motion reads the configuration file motion.conf from the beginning of the file going down line by line.
2. If the option "thread" is defined in motion.conf, the thread configuration file(s) is/(are) read.
3. Motion continues reading the rest of the motion.conf file. Any options from here will overrule the same option previously defines in a thread config file.
4. Motion reads the command line option again overruling any previously defined options.

- The answer is YES, every time you make some modifications to your motion.conf/threadx.conf file(s), you must restart the motion daemon.
