Graphics glitch?

Question

New install of 2019, did not import user files.  First saw this when editing a file started in 2018, but after only a few operations my view looks like a 1980 video game.  once it happens it pops in and out of this state as I move the cursor.  The file in the screenshot is brand new.  Started inserting truss and on the last stick it did this.  If I pan and zoom there is a ghost image retained of the moment that the glitch occurred.  That's what the white grid to the left is.  The purple is the current page outline.  If I go into a 3d view, it shifts to green, but otherwise remains the same, glitching in and out as I move the cursor.

It looks like you have three monitors, and all of them are using your Intel 630 integrated card rather than your dedicated Nvidia Quadro.

First: Make sure your monitors are ALL plugged in ONLY to the dedicated graphics card's ports on the rear of your machine. Do not use any ports for video up near the USB among the rest of the ports along the back of the machine.

Second: Perform the following, reboot, then see if the issue recurs:

This is a laptop with a docking station,  And it was the issue in the link.  I had done it for VW2018, but I forgot when I installed 2019 to add it to the list.

 

Thanks!

I have encountered the same problem, and was not entertained.  Had also forgotten to add 2019 to the program list.

Has this issue been resolved somewhere? Finally got to download and use 2019 version, went to use the flyover tool and was greeted with this..Capture.thumb.JPG.4f9383ce783f2a040afc344020a6e19a.JPG

I am experiencing the same issue.  I tried disabling the second monitor, made no difference.  I've tried opening drawings from a VW 2016,2018,2019, as well as starting a drawing.  At some point soon after I begin to draw anything the screen begins to flash in blocks of color, as described by others.  At this point I, and several others in my company, are stuck unable to get anything done on an upcoming project.  Please help.

Hi Ben.

Mine was a very simple fix as I had plugged one monitor into the graphics card and the other into the motherboard, and it was the mother board one that was causing this issue. Plugged both into the graphics card and it fixed it.

However, I have since been contacted by the local distributor tech office, saying that since a Jan / Feb windows update other users had been experiencing the same issue, which wasn't caused by where the the monitors are plugged in.

Unfortunately, if both your monitors are plugged into the graphics card, I dont have an answer for you. All I can say is that the powers that be are aware of the issue and are hopefully trying to sort it out as it is a bit of a game breaking bug.

As a side note I think I have had more issues with VW19 than any other version of VW which is saying something. Im still using VW18 for some projects as Im reluctant to advance any on VW19 for fear of finding something else.

 

If Im contacted again I'll add to this post, with any news.

I hope you get it sorted.

Cheers

@Benjamin Emerson @AndyjBard One other thing to check in your setup is the VWX Prefs>Display>Navigation Graphics.  It was added in v2017 (I think) and has settings to compensate for capacity of graphics cards.  Lowest impact setting is Best Compatibility.

 

May not be related to your experience, but it's quick and easy to adjust this setting and test.

Jim's solution above is correct.

 

What is the actual computer model you are running on? Do you have another graphics card aside from the Intel integrated graphics?  My understanding is that the integrated graphics on the motherboard is not sufficient to run VW, you will have to have an actual graphics card that meets the VW specs.  

 

If you already have one, the problem is that windows isn't using the better graphics processor to run VW.  Follow Jims link in that case.

It's a Problem with Intel Graphics Card (It's not recommend with Vectorworks)

If you have a Notebook with two graphics cards (Intel and Nvidia), follow this post from Jim. This documentation it's Old, but works yet (It's be possible that some options, isn't available anymore). This it's cool because have others settings that will improve OpenGL and Wireframe performance.

Thanks for all the help.

 

Benson Shaw's recommendation of setting the Navigation Preferences to 'Best Compatibility' seems to have solved the problem.

Hi Benjamin,

 

Yeah it's works, because the Vectorworks, compatibilized your Intel Graphics Card (Onboard). It's strong recommend that you follow the step in this post below, to setup your Vectorworks to running with Nvidia Quadro M1200 (Dedicated "Discrete" graphics card - The best card compared with your Intel HD Graphics 630).

 

It's the best way to solve your problem, and extract the most computational power from your computer.

It appears the Quadro M1200 is a laptop card.  It looks like you have the Geforce GTX 1060, I assume that's a workable desktop adaptor?

Hi Benjamin, Yes Quadro M1200 it's a Laptop card. It's the graphic card of user @Lekolite.

 

My Graphic Card it's installed in my Desktop Computer (I Bought the parts and mount the Computer by my self).

 

What it's your graphic card?

I just have an Intel 630, basic on the motherboard and clearly only just up to the task, so I'm now shopping proper cards to recommend to IT.  We have 5-6 workstations that are involved, so it'll not happen immediately, but an upgrade does seem to be warranted.

Ahh ok, yeah this is not the recommend Graphic Card, because we have many issues registered with Intel Graphic Card (Onboard)

 

The @Benson Shaw advice it's only way to help you with this Intel 630, and happy this works to you. Some cases this proceed doesn't work with Intel graphics Cards.

 

Follow the Vectorworks 2019 System Requirements
https://www.vectorworks.net/sysreq?version=2019

 

If will be possible, I suggest the New Nvidia Geforce RTX Series. Because The professional Nvidia Graphics Cards (Quadro) it's very expensive, and Vectorworks doesn't extract the Professional resource that Quadro provides (So it will not make a difference)

Just curious but what happened between VW 2018 and 2019? Did the program just become more intensive so a dedicated card was needed?

@AndyjBard I Don't Know exactly, but I think that is something with in this new feature (VECTORWORKS GRAPHICS MODULE SUPPORT FOR SHEET LAYERS)

And all new version of Vectorworks, demands more computacional power (CPU and Graphics).
