marc dion (marcclintdion) added a comment to T51948: Pen pressure cannot be detected on Wacom Cintiq Pro 16.

This is still broken for me but it usually doesn't start right away. When it starts, even my mouse won't work and it also affects texture and curve drawing. If I disable pressure sensitivity then I can make brush strokes again.

Bastien Montagne (mont29) raised the priority of T53159: OpenVDB cache doesn't support unicode characters in filename from Incomplete to Confirmed.

Did a quick check here on linux (which is utf-8 unicode system since… ages), with non-ascii chars in file name, and it works perfectly well.

After seeing this I tried installing photoshop trial and it indeed fixes the issue for blender (and Gimp, and Inkscape)

Joshua Leung (aligorith) added a comment to T53078: Object moving handles misplaced in animation.

Right. Just to clarify, I agree that it's probably a good idea to just hide these completely for playback.

Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to T53078: Object moving handles misplaced in animation.

If one wants to debug rotations, it can still be done by going through frames manually. Or in a whole bunch of different ways :)
Also note that I'm speaking about all manipulators, not just transform manipulators. Can't really see a good reason to keep them visible on playback (maybe auto-keying spot light moves during playback? Does anyone do such things?).

Joshua Leung (aligorith) added a comment to T53078: Object moving handles misplaced in animation.

Indeed - it may be a good idea to just hide them to avoid the performance hit and also allow animators to see the scene with less clutter (though there are also the rigs visible still).
On the other hand, I can also imagine how having these visible might be useful in some (rare?) circumstances (e.g. debugging rotations).

Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to T53078: Object moving handles misplaced in animation.

Should be easy to fix, however updating manipulator position on every frame may mean some frames less per sec. Maybe we should hide manipulators during playback? We could also cache coordinates but seriously doubt that would be worth it :S

Confirmed (gp-branch from 11 October). This only seems to happen when playing back the animation (Alt-A) but not when scrubbing.

Sorry for the late response.
It is related to setting on Windows using Advanced System Settings > Environment variables setting so the command line executable can be executed easily.

@Emmanuel LORANT (asturias), if you change the layout to be horizontal [1, 2, 3] - does Blender open on the correct screen?

This is a bug in the Intel graphics driver, the latest drivers from the Intel website apparently solved this (see T51521: Incorrect windows scaling - mouse offset from view - menu bar invisible).

Emmanuel LORANT (asturias) added a comment to T34962: Problem make Blender open in the wanted monitor..

Hi, perhaps a clue if someone follows this : I changed the way I plug my monitors. Now, the 3 monitors are on the same graphic card (GTX 1060 6Gb). Blender always opens in the monitor that Windows 10 Pro x64 recognizes as the monitor "3" (whether I saved Startup file with Blender opened in monitor 1, 2 or 3). It was the same when this monitor was plugged in USB so it doesn't come from the way monitors are plugged.

wilson christian (wilboy) added a comment to T52691: Can't able to start blender.

Concerning the warning in the console - it is harmless and it comes from the Audaspace library.
To make it not show anymore go to File > User Preferences > System. Find the Sound label on the left and under it the` Sample Rate` drop down menu. In your case, pick 192 kHz and press the Save User Settings button at the bottom.

The issue is not related to that but to Blender hanging on startup. To do some troubleshooting:

  • Ensure both your OS and drivers are fully up-to-date (and use official GPU drivers, not those provided by windows or tablet/laptop maker).
  • Try to disable any running antivirus.
  • Ensure you have no python executable available in your %path% envvar.
  • Try to re-download and re-install Blender.
  • Try the latest build from our buildbot.
  • Try to start Blender in factory settings (--factory-startup commandline option) (this will ensure whether this is a userpref or addon issue or not).
  • Try to tweak your GPU driver settings (e.g. try different values between 'performance' and 'quality' if you have such slider, etc.).
  • Launch Blender from the command line with -d option and attach as text file here any error printed out in the console (do not paste it directly in comment).
  • Try to run Blender through Software OpenGL, this will be much slower however, if everything works then it means that the bug is spefic for your GPU/Driver and you should report the bug to your GPU vendor instead.
  • On Linux/macOS, Official releases come with blender-softwaregl
  • On MS-Windows: Download this dll and copying it so its located in the same directory as 'blender.exe' and run Blender normally.

Bastien Montagne (mont29) triaged T52692: Blender crashes when attempting to rebuild strip proxy as Incomplete priority.

Crash clearly comes from FFMPEG (avcodec is part of this). Blender comes with its own ffmpeg, which seems to be used here, but my bet would be that it somehow interact with libs installed by K-Lite stuff, so would suggest you try to uninstall it (or maybe simply re-install Blender), and see if it fixes things.
