There is still no excuse for Apple to be so far behind in this.

Poor MAXON. I can only imagine how painful it must be to be able to cram all the latest good stuff into the Windows side of things and then having to code a thousand workarounds for the Mac while customers keep complaining that graphics are slower in the new version.

Thumbs up

Hello all! I have good feedback for a change: The newest Nvidia Driver for the 8800 GTX (266.58 WHQL 64bit under Win7) boosts the viewperformance of C4D 12.043 nearly up to the old performance of C4D 11.5. Thank you Maxon and thank you NVidia!

Best regards

Marius

I use this thread to may eventually get an answere on my problem. I use R11.5 with latest Updatet and latest Graphics Driver. It´s a GeForce GTX 460 2GB.

It seems to be a MipMapping fault, because it happens just on the Linear-MipMapping Interpolation Mode.
If I enable OpenGL I get grey seam Artifacts at any Tileedge. Its not a Mapping or Texture issue, its just the Viewport.

I have an older notebook. The graphics card is Radeon mobility X700.
It supports OpenGL 2.1. I guess for R12 i need a OpenGL 3.1 capable card?
Cause i can´t switch to "Enhanced" OpenGL. But without "Enhanced" there are
viewport issues, like other users described. Maybe it is possible to leave some-
thing like "legacy openGL drivers" in further R12 updates. So users with older
notebooks can work with newer cinema 4d versions. What do you say ?

Not using EOGL basicaly is a legacy option, as is the option to switch off OGL altogether.
Maintaining more numerous options isn't realy practical since the limitations vary quite a lot from card to card.
Cheers

Quadro Fx 540

Hellow there.
I'm just having an issue trying to install CINEMA 4D 12 DEMO in my machine.
Windows 7
Intel Core i5 CPU
Graphic Card:
Nvidia Quadro FX 580.

I installed the latest drivers. But when I open the program, it just get wacky!.
Is this a graphic card issue?.
Was checking on nvidia web and it seems that the Graphic card supported are:
FX1800, FX3800, FX4800, FX5800

Is this for real??. Doesn´t work on my kind of card.
Is it any chance for this to work?.

thanks in advance for the answer

I'm not sure what you mean by whacky, but the FX 580 is a 512MB low end card with very low memory bandwidth. I wouldn't expect to much from it and personaly i wouldn't use it for any 3D application.

Cheers
Björn

Thanks for the answer, and sorry for my english Björn. Well, By whacky I meant that when I try to move in the viewport it just get crazy, and The toolset doesn't seem to work at all. Someone people had problems setting up this version in windows 7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVsu...feature=related
So i figured could be something with the graphic card.
I know the FX 580 is not a High end professional card, but it is an entry level one, that fits right on the budget.
I'm a Maya user from more than 5 years and this card works fine with maya, Zbrush, mudbox and video applications.
correct me if i'm wrong but i thought that the Quadro Fx family were actually made to work with 3d Application.
If you know any work around please let me know....
not sure if I want to spend an extra $1500, just to move around in cinema 4D.

Thanks in advance

Cheers.

The FX580 should work ok, it's just not very fast and capable.
As for the video, it describes how to circumvent an often encountered problem with buggy intel on board graphics drivers. If you have the most current WHQL certified driver for your card installed this should not pose any problem for you at all.
If you can tell us what you mean by whaky (screenshot, video, ...) it might be possible to give you more detailed advice.
You might like to contact Maxon technical support anyway though, they have much experience with customers that encounter trouble with graphics cards.
Cheers
Björn

Redraw Artifacts - Quadro Fx 5800

Hi,

Am a new C4D user (although not new to 3-D), and am not able to get to the bottom of a screen redraw bug.

it happens after pressing 'v' or 'CTRL-ALT-V' to bring up a menu over the viewport, or when opening (e.g.) the preferences window over the viewport. Once the menu closes, the screen only redraws in parts. The issue can then be cleared by F5 switching to 4-up, then F1 back to perspective.

Using C4D R12.048 on Win7 64-bit, Quadro FX 5800 with 259.81 driver (WHQL certified for C4D). Vertical sync is force-off. I can give all the other driver settings if this would help narrow the problem down.

Maya 2011 is running fine on the same computer.

Have tried re-installing C4D & quadro driver to no avail.

Attached a couple of screen shots to show the artifacts.

Any ideas?

I also have this with R12 on a GTX 480 laterst drivers (as of yesterday) but have always had it - really annoying! Will there be a fix for it or do we have to buy R13 to get a fix?
