View Full Version : modeler and layout no image viewable.

04-27-2008, 06:27 AM
i have lightwave 7.0 and also lightwave 8.01

i bought a new pc with windows vista 64bit installed and an nvidia 8800gtx

i reinstalled it on the new pc

when i fire up modeler or lightwave layout i get no image in the 4 panes. all the buttons work, but i cant see my models. (i have tried both versions)

if i resize divider between the 4 views it does not redraw the views properly.

it used to do this if i used it on my second monitor when i had it installed on XP, but now it is doing it on both screens and i cannot use it.

any ideas?

use different graphics card drivers

youcan try disabling hardware acceleration for the video card .

i have a 300 quid gfx card - disabling hardware acceleration seems a little harsh!
how do i even do that?

also i have the latest nvidia drivers :(

Change the different settings in Layout / Display / OpenGL.

Is GLSL activated?

latest are not always the best drivers..... really try older ones.....that worked for me. And if u use 2 monitors on you gfx card try the horizontal span modes because than your computer wil only use one frame buffer.

ok figured it

my gtx card comes with some ASUS gaming OSD (on screen display)
that is activated with a hotkey

it never worked and i uninstalled it and all is good.!
