11-19-2003, 08:27 AM
...i've just started using 7.5 from 7 which my computer and i have no problems with.
but layout has my object flickering every time i move it or the camera.
even i revert back to 7 its still flickers.
i took off 7.5 and 7, loaded 7 backon my hard drive and everythinks ok.
i'm running OSX 10.1.5, G4 867quicksilver 1.5g memory, and the ATI card it shipped with.
Q1: is this ATI card issue?
Q2: will 7.5c sort this out?
Q3: my OSX?
any help would be gratefull.:rolleyes:

Q1: is this ATI card issue?
No (but I would get a new card anyway) :rolleyes:
Q2: will 7.5c sort this out?
Not likely.
Q3: my OSX?Not likely.

This is likely an OpenGL error introduced somehow in 7.5. I would seriously doubt 7.5c would solve an error like that. I would suggest posting a sample scene file, and steps to reproduce it, so someone with 7.5c or at NT can test to verify it is a Lightwave bug.

You could check with someone running 10.2.6 or 10.2.8, if you know somebody, but I doubt an OS upgrade would fix it. You could also try the 7.5c update, knowing that there are a few bugs there as well.

Check your bounding box threshold under Display Options, it may have been re-set - try it at 40,000

Just what Toby said.
I had exactly the same problem on my TiBook.. Just shrink LW's window, and the flickering seems to vanish.

Well it did for me anyway.
Hope it helps.
