seems to be a bug in the script

You should submit a bug report

- Overlap: works great!
- Tripple buffer: works great, too!
- Automatic: menus flicker[/list]

On import, the mat names get truncated and make a straightforward export impossible. I always got to run my text editor and correct the mat names, which is annoying and time...

Here a short video to show the roll in action:

Same here. I turned off "Desktop Composition" in the compatibility tab (right-click on blender or blender shortcut, properties, compatibility) and now everything is fine :)
