What is wrong with my LW?

Ok for some reason all the lines (grid, and wireframe) show really fuzzy/blurry... I think its something with my prefrances cause my system is fine and i can see really thin lined text clear in the menu...

Also when ever i move an object or face the orthaganal windows start slightly shaking and looking all wierd? but then are fine when im done moving...

My system:
Tbird - 1.2 ghz
768 pc 133 ram
Geforce 4 4600 Ti (xtacy)
19" flat screen KDS monitor.

I'd call Tech Support and find out if there are any issues with your video Card......that's what it sounds like....do you have the latest drivers for your card?

i don't think he means the LINE of cards, but rather your particular card.

I run the Ti 200 and Ive found with GeForce the Detonaters are better and XP has some really good drivers for that OS.

The newest nVidia drivers are bad, so that might be your problem. I suggest staying at an earlier version until they fix the problem.

driver

I have a G4 Ti4200, am on WinXP and had trouble with the new Nvidia drivers. Everything works now, but am avoiding the new drivers. Make sure you're not using the beta ones they have. Just use the ones that came with your cd.

Sounds to me like you'v got forced x4 antialising in you'r graphics card advanced options, set it to (let application define level of antialising), lightwave has its own way of antialising your the visuals.
If Im right, layouts grid should look realy wack.
But Im pretty sure thats the problem.

Ok mix id like to first say thnx.. also to all others who helped.. however mix nailed the problem....

Proton you should add this to the faq:
It seems on the Nvidia cards you cant have it enable any antialaising settings by the card our you get ugly glitching in orthaganal viewports when moving stuff around or creating objects. I had QuinCunx Anti. invoked for games i play, However LW didnt like this. As soon as i switched it to application choice then all problems where fixed. It was not the recent drivers i did much testing on installing and reinstalling and older version and the newest.

I figure this might be helpful on Newtecks FAQ because alot of people may edit around the settings as i did to improve image quality. Also maybe a bug for LW staff to work on so i dont have to keep switching my settings? Any ways best of luck and if you have any questions please feel free to message me!
