Bit of an open door but: You might be loosing the OpenGL context somehow.


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-07-10

Could you try the 32-bit version? I don't have access to a 64-bit XP machine for testing, and I haven't seen anything like that in Vista or Windows 7.


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-07-10

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think I recreate the OpenGL context when the toolbar is toggled, but I'll have to check my code to be sure. I think I just show/hide the bar windows, and then resize the OpenGL window. (In LDView, the OpenGL window is a borderless sub-window of the main LDView window so that it's out of the way of the optional toolbar and status bar.)

So I tried the 32-bit version its works all fine- but like other already mentioned only over legacy install

I reported the bug of the 64-bit version so that the stable release of 4.2 don't will have this bug - It's no problem to use until the release of this one the 32 bit version....

Only thought that the 64-bit version could use more than one core (which could maybe an advantage with a i5 quadcore)....


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-07-10

All three versions will use more than one core, but LDView only uses multiple cores for transparency sorting (one extra core) and conditional edge line calculations (as many cores as are available). So, under many circumstances, it won't visibly be using all the cores.

Since I don't have access to a dev machine with XP 64, it's very unlikely I'll be able to track down the source of your problem before the official release, but thank you for reporting it. I really do appreciate all bug reports.

I was in despair ! I had a lot of troubles with LPub 4.0.0.11 in conjunction with LDView 4.1. With a relative complex design using a submodel repeated several times LPub was not able to finish up without crashing after about 80% of instructions generating. Reducing quality in LDView was helping a little bit but couldn't solve the problem. So I "discovered" your announcement about LDView 4.2 Beta and tried out the 64-Bit version. The result is phenomenal ! It runs 3 to 5 times faster and all the problems with cooperating between LPub and LDView are blown away !

Thanks Travis for this great upgrade ... You are the knight in shining armor :-)

Any news on this?


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Travis Cobbs - 2012-12-11

Sorry, but no. It seems unlikely it will make it into the official 4.2, though, given how little time I've had to work on LDView lately, and how long it's taking me to get it out the door.


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 Released - Philippe Hurbain - 2012-12-12

Sad
...But I can easily understand you!


Re: LDView 4.2 Beta 1 can't export to povray - Patricia Moya Nosquera - 2013-01-03

LDView 4.2 beta1 can't export to povray correctly, I only get a contour:

It did work with older versions but now I use ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bits and older versions don't work anymore.

This is my hardware:
