View Full Version : Modeler, viewports going black using interactive tools

01-04-2014, 04:30 AM
Anyone else having this issue using Mavericks? It did it a little in 11.6 but is much worse using 11.6.1. It's a bit random the way certain viewports go black using some interactive tools, also in weigh map view sometimes.

Got Nvidia card and the CUDA drivers are all up to date. Any settings I should be fiddling with?

Never had viewports going black, though occasionally all the geometry in the top left one disappears and you have to move or zoom to refresh it. haven't been able to find the exact cause, so haven't FB it yet.

I am not seeing this problem. I wonder if it is related to the problem discussed in this thread: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?133262-Graph-editor-11-5-black-screen

I've got this problem in 11.6.1 both on my macbook(ati) and my windows(nvidia) workstation but I haven't seen it in modeler. Only in Layout. I was working in the grapheditor and bang.....my main viewport blacked out.
Resizing the window restored it to OGL again. Must be a bug in 11.6.1 I guess?

Cheers peeps. Will keep on trying until I can isolate what I'm doing. I think it might be primarily with a couple of 3rd party apps causing the most grief but I'll keep at it.

I can't reproduce it yet as well but there is something going on....
