    Thumbs down Lightwave 8 modeler display problem

    I suspect this problem was discussed on this forum, but I could not find the thread:

    Problem:

    In Lightwave 8 modeler "front" "top" and "side" views turn blank in wireframe mode in most magnification levels. I know that video-card incompatibility is blamed and a patch is under development. I was wondering if somebody who faced this issue found some kind of workaround method, before this patch is developed?

    Thanks everybody!

    Try turning on Simple wireframe edges and points in the Display Options window.

    I had this problem as well, it was in combination with an extreme long initialization time of the OpenGL window. Upgrading the drivers of the videocard did the trick.

    What kind of videocard do you use?
    Do what you want to do, but do it with style.

    I did activate simple wireframe edges and points and the problem seems went away completely. Therefore, we can consider this a rather minor glitch. Thank you for the advice!

    PS. I am using GeForce FX 5200, which came with a dual 2 GHz G5.
