things used to work fine once upon a time.
« on: December 06, 2014, 12:54:58 pm »

Anim8or goes nuts in figure mode, it freezes up when i try to add a simple object to a bone it takes ages to load. It works better if i turn it to open gl render mode but eventually freezes. If i load a previously constructed figure it loads ok behaves for a short period then freezes. Sure this must be a driver issue as it behaves like this even with 0.98.currently i have open gl 4.4.
win7.amd radeon graphics.hd 6520g....dismayed.

I`m using the same GPU as you Drew on my laptop, 64Bit Quad Core AMD A6-3420M APU and 8 Gig Memory,  downgraded back to 4.1 because of the intermittent crashing in the development builds, its ok in 0.98, but with the latest build (1140) that does not even load in the figure and and promptly crashes for me.

Cheers for the reply K.
I'm having more luck today with figure mode ,turned it back to scan line.
with these settings and its behaving more like i would expect.ie i can at least work with it.
Though still some peculiarity generally.
the lines shouldn't be on the sphere should they?0.98 also has lines with the same switch selected.
havent managed to change drivers back though ...stuck with 4.4

You can turn lines (and.or points) on and off in smooth and flat modes. Use the File->Configure UI dialog.
