This not very likely a Vista problem, but more a videocard (driver) problem. You may have to tweak your display settings (turn down or even off hardware acceleration, disable fullscreen antialiasing, try different colordepths). Also, upgrading to the newest driver version often helps.
|I do actually see a place to put this but I guess this is the closes place to put it.
I have Vista and when I use blender all the menus slowly scroll close and blender doesn't allow me to do anything until the slow scroll is complete.
Any solutions to this?
|what did you do to fix your problem and were you also seeing slow downs in fullscreen mode ?|
|I am running Vista Home Basic 32 using Intel mobile 945GM chipset.
I have the most up to date drivers fitted.
Blender installed and runs OK.
But as others have reported there are some problems.
using KEYB select mode the crosshairs are not visible and KEYF12 render produces a blank screen.
The rendering is done and can be exported but the render window does not work.
I found that dropping the color depth to 16 made it work again.. but that ain't so good.
In the end I selected the properties tab for the blender.exe shortcut and selected "Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode" and full screen and de-selected visual effects. Now the render window works and the crosshairs are visible for KEYB.
p.s. I am not sure exactly which of the actions corrected the problem but a little investigation will tell. I was just happy to get it working.
Have you already tried turning Aero completely off?
|The only way I can avoid the slowdown is to disable the fancy menu vista has ( start menu is round ).
any idea ? ( I kinda like my start menu the way it is )
Blender or a round start menu - life is full of hard choices.
Run blender from the command line as
to see the options for setting window size and such.
