  • Give us your exact Blender, OS and GPU (including drivers) versions, as requested in the template!
  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date.
  • Try the latest build from our buildbot.
  • Try to tweak OGL settings in UserPreferences, System tab (especially the 'select method' option).
  • Try to tweak your GPU driver settings (e.g. try different values between 'performance' and 'quality' if you have such slider, etc.).
  • Try to place this dll next to your blender.exe (software OGL, will be slow, but will show whether this is a driver issue or not).

Let me first off give details about my system:

OS: Win7 x64 SP1
Graphic Cards: 4xAsusRogGTX760 Nvidia / Driver version: 364.72 (This was the latest when I downloaded it from the Nvidia website)
Processor: intel core i7-4820K
White Box

I usually favor performance over quality in the driver settings, but I'll try otherwise and see what happens. Will try the software OGL thingy as well and will report here.

Thank you...


Ok, I resolved the situation, thanx to your help. It turned out to be a driver issue. I installed drivers that came with the graphic cards and everything went back to normal. I'm guessing that Nvidia's builds could sometimes have the potential to yield quirky results with 3DCC apps.

Thanx so much for taking the time to walk me through the checklist :)
