View Full Version : LW only renders when mouse is moving

This is a very strange occurence. It seems that LightWave will only render while I'm moving the mouse. And even then it's choppy. Below is what I get if I Just hit F9 and don't touch anything else. It just stays like that until I move the mouse. Anyone else seen this?

Turn off Teamviewer.

Huh, never would have thought of that thanks. I hope that gets fixed. I occasionally use Team Viewer to check on renders from my phone while I'm out.

fog it! :)

I will, though I'm not sure if it's a LW problem or Team Viewer.

I also notice there is no camera info?

Yes that's part of the problem none of that appears until moving the mouse a bit then after moving it for a while more the render sort of starts.

Switch to Ultra VNC. No issues running VNC server on any of my boxes.

I'm not seeing an Android version of Ultra VNC. I will probably use Splashtop, I got a free copy of the pro version of that from Amazon.

Just tried TeamViewer here, works just fine (Windows 7 on both machines). It looks like you're using Windows 8 there, any known issues with TeamViewer and Windows 8?

Text and progress bars are drawn to the screen in a pretty standard manner, there is no reason why they should not be showing up. OpenGL is most often the issue, not the other stuff.

You can use any standard VNC client app (android/iOS) with Ultra VNC. But, yeah, agree with Matt. The vid OGL driver must be getting hung by something. Mouse movement sends hardware interrupts to OS, breaking the hold.

well I use teamviewer to connect with the work computer and I am used to leave task manager open...I guess task manager makes the computer redraw or something and with it open it renders. If I don't leave task manager open lightwave doesn't render. The computer is working fine, it's just lightwave that is stopped.
