Help! Blender is MELTING!

I need help ASAP Blender is freaking melting on me: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8834359/img/blendermelting.jpg Moving the mouse causes this effect to slowly occur, when the mouse passes over a specific area/panel the melting effect ceases and that particular part is clear while the mouse is over it.

What do you guys think, I don't know whether to get a GeForce GT 630 4GB, or a GT 640 with 2GB. The GT640 is a bit faster, and it has over three times as many cuda cores. Which of these two cards would you recommend? (The 4gb 640 is not available in Britain and would cost about £150 ($250ish) to imp...

Is this a good video card for Blender?

Hi, I'd like to get some advice about a video card for Blender. From what I hear CPU rendering is not the way to do things, using the GPU is far faster (I'm new to Blender). I have heard that memory size is much more important than the speed/power of the card. I'm familiar with the gaming cards such...

Those leaves are split into groups of five, each group has a different leaf texture applied. The coordinates are set to UV, although I haven 't unwrapped the leaves. The tree was m...

Problem applying multiple materials.

Hi, I'm having a small problem with textures. Supposedly you can apply a material to the current selection of faces, select some other faces, then apply another material to those newly selected faces. This never works for me, I have to detach the parts of the mesh completely that are to have a separ...

Donations are used to fund Blender development. The Blender movie projects are, in a sense, a side effect. They take new features for a test drive, to check what works and what does not. They also demonstrate what Blender can do. Each movie project has a theme or area of focus - for example, in Big...
