Worked: unknown

Short description of error
When you are in the view animation window and pause the animation with the spacebar, whenever you move the mouse cursor the image is flickering. This even happens to a lesser extent when the window is in the background and you move the mouse cursor over the foreground window.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
With any animation rendered: click render -> view animation. Move mouse cursor around over the window.

Cannot reproduce here (linux, 970m, 435.21 drivers).

  • I assume GPU drivers are up-to-date?
  • Maybe sharing a screencast of this helps confirming?

GPU drivers for the intel graphics are part of MacOS, which is fully up-to-date. I added a short screen recording. The effect is a bit less than earlier when I reported it, but otherwise still similar. When the animation is playing, it does not happen, only when paused.

At the end of the video my mouse cursor is moving at a different part of the screen btw and then it also happens.
