 Strange Video behavior.. Anyone else?

I'm getting this type thing as well as generally horrible video clipping and performance CAM side typically. As the tool path gets more complex the process gets slower and slower. Once the tool path has been rendered I get very slow video performance and clipping.(clipping) When the rotation or movment of the model does not track with the pointer but jumps to the next location. What you see is an attempt to rotate the model post tool path.. You can see the cutter hanging around in the back ground. Sometimes 2012 will crash after this other times not.

Over time I have had all sorts of video abberations, background going black, shading and wire frame swapping at speed, window holes in the display.On most occasions the only answer is to reboot and get the system stable. It seems that some operations have an impact on the windows OS or deeper.
So for your comfort - you are not alone, although I haven't seen your exact type... Cheers

Hmm! Only the two of us? Would help if we could get some feedback here so we can all have great video too... Any ideas on what might be going on. Display list, O-GL, hardware acceleration issues?? Anyone who knows of video board driver versions that work better than others, rather than, "get the latest driver"...

Card is Quadro Fermi 2000... Running latest, ur, driver. Driver update from last to current changed nothing with respect to this issue. Anti-aliasing improved I noticed.

I'm using NV FX 580 with driver version 8.17.12.9573 released on 2012.2.9, the latest driver is better is because that we use more deep API of OpenGL, most of them only exist in opengl 3.1 or above. ZW3D 2012 needs opengl 2.1 or above. If you have open3.1 or above, it works much faster, that is my own experience. I hope it is helpful for you.

I'm using that very driver.. No change in this behavior.. Looks like we still have a ways to go here. Yawn! Can't keep throwing money into ultra powerful systems for not! I just simply cannot understand why this CADCAM platform is so buggy.. Trading one set of bugs for another with version changes. I'm sorry but I cannot be sympathetic to the cause as I have spent and am spending good money on this product.. It's supposed to be 20 plus years mature from what I understand. I find it curious that no one else has issues! Ex: mud crab and me!

You guys keep trying.. Maybe the programming team will get it before the US customer base is exhausted..

That said it would be nice if a set of "best performance settings" were posted for this product whether for the Nvidia Manager OR ZW3D.. Or "settings", "best practices" posted...

I like the product very much when it works right. But when it fails it costs me time, and money!

Thanks anyway Colin.

Hi , it is strange that I cannot understand why there are so many bugs so I am accustomed to restar
But the beta testers who have done?
Sorry about the venting but cost money!

I have tested 2012 on three different Intel platforms. 5520, s5000, 7525GP2. All with either dual core or quad core cpus. All with Nvidia video boards same and of different type, Quadro 2000 Fermi FX 3450 and 3700. Using WHQL drivers. 3 to 12 gig of ram, SATA and SCSI storage. x64 and x86 windows. ZW3D 2012 seems to have some sort of cam side video issues that either cause crash or corrupt video. The performance slows as the tool path gets more complex in the number of operations and complexity and tolerance of those operations. No real ryhm nor reason to when exactly crashes will occur or why the video will be corrupt in one session and not the next.

Just an update. Patch: Save often! Maybe we'll get some relief in the form of a service pack..

It's cool stuff but as one fellow said, is too fragile..
