hi alli just bought XSI and i'm having some troubles with the UI refresh. i have mainly 3 problems:
1. UI does not refresh in the animation editor or any deformer curve shape UI
i'm using a quadro 4 750 XGL using the XSI preset in the opengl tab (nvidia v61.77)
2. while rendering in render region i cannot change any colo parameter until in finishes the rendering, for any other slider it works but not on the colors
3. while playing a cloth sim i cannot stop it either using the down key or esc or pressing the stop/play button again

is this the normal behaviour?

thank you

I have the same problem on a BOXX machine with the same video card. Actually all the BOXX machines we have with that video card have the same problem. And that's with the certified driver. But our Machines with Quadro 950's or even Geforce4's are fine.

I sometimes get another refresh type problem. If XSI 4 has been running for sometime, i occassionally get a situation where the screen gives me no feedback when manipulating anything in the viewports.

e.g if I move a cube - nothing will happen - until I click the viewports again at which point the cube jumps to where I moved it to.

Very annoying - and only a restart of XSI fixes it.

Anyone else get the same problem?
