View Full Version : Black images in interface

08 August 2006, 06:40 PM
I've noticed that when I add plants into Vue (Infinite 5) I get a nice textured view in all of the windows in my quad layout. However, when adding objects, either Vue's own library or imported, all views except the render camera view give me black cubes (see pic) despite the window display options. Is there a master setting for this somewhere or could my ATI 9800 video card be the culprit? I'm using the latest ATI drivers (which has made no difference). My video card gives nice OpenGL textures in all views of LightWave 9.

I think you should play a little with the display settings in the preferences - then this will go away, i am sure.

Check the top right corner of the respective views and you'll find a little drop might have them set to "filled box" change to "smooth shaded"...If you havn't tried this already.

After trying all the window display types I eventualy took a Nvidia 6800 card from another machine and transplanted it. That cured the problem. Grrrr ... wish I'd figured that out before.

Many thanks to IvanB and Wabe for your replies.
