View Full Version : Empty viewports

07-21-2011, 08:45 PM
Hello everyone

I'm facing a problem with Lightwave. I can't see anything. The viewports seem totally empty, no grid lines, no origins, not even a model when I'm load the model. The problem appears in Lightwave 10, but I installed an earlier version on the same computer and still facing the same problem.

Any ideas?

It helps if you supply some information on your computer --- processor type, type of graphics card (or if it's a laptop with embedded graphics). ATI graphics cards in particular can be problematic. And I've even seen problems associated with graphics acceleration! and mouse settings, of all things! Speaking of which, have you made sure all your graphics drivers are up-to-date?

No worries mates, was driver problem. Just re-installed the graphics drivers and everything is fine now.

I have gotten that a time or two with modeler. Close everything then open again and its ok.

It has happened one session and not repeated since.

(It happened that I stopped and started modeler a few times during the session. Thus the statement, "a time or two". Bad sentence.)
