Zoom pan and orbit very slow

Question

Hello to everybody, 

I have searched for this issue and I am really surprised that I couldn't find posts about it. 

 

Don't you think that zoom, pan and orbit commands activation both thru mouse wheel and toolbars is incredibly slow? (VW 2019 and 2020 both Win and Mac)

I am talking about more or less 1 second but it is really disturbing and it make working with VW very frustrating; expecially compared with other 3d modeling sw.

 

I have a 9th gen i7 and a RTX 2080 that is kind of a "monster" in 3d navigation in any other software even with realtime rendering and raytracing activated. 

So how can happens that navigating an OpenGL model, low quality setting, no antialiasing, is so laggy?

 

I think that the problem is not in the model navigation itself, maybe the problem is in the speed of the activation of the commands zoom, pan and orbit. Since when the command is finally (1 second avarage) executed I can zoom/orbit/pan the model very fast.

 

I hope that I have been able to explain my problem and that you will help me to solve it,

thank you,

Davide

I also noticed some lag in larger models when trying to orbit by mouse.

While view zoom and drag worked fine,

orbit needed a half second or a second before orbit starts.

After orbit started, it worked smooth.

 

On the other hand, when using a 3d Space Navigator instead of my mouse,

there was no lag at all.

@zoomer yes, I thought that a space navigator would solve the problem. It is a pety to have this kind of behaviour. I have noticed that it happens after any rotation of the view. It takes even more, 2 or 3 secs, togive you the possibiliity to select any new command. Do you think that could be any settins or best practice to minimize the problem?

thank you!

AFAIK for me the lag came back after any other any other action,

even just pan or zoom. Basically every time I start the orbit by CTRL+MMB

 

AFAIK on Windows only (?)

I also have a NVidia card (RTX 2070) but Ryzen CPU

 

Also, from time to time, I install NVidia's Content Creator driver instead

of the standard gamer driver. It feels a bit like I would have more

problems with CC driver in VW.

I noticed no issues on any other App though and all I read is that the

CC driver version is absolutely save and even performs well in games.

Just that is not updated that often to support all latest games.

The same for me

shorter lag (0,2 sec??) on mac but still too long

I don't know this driver, for now I have installed the latest driver provided by my manufacturer specifically for my laptop (ASUS Zephyrus GX531)

so you think that I should try this CC driver?  Worth it?

thank you!

I am not sure.

I don't really remember, when having display problems in VW,

like whole geometry disappearing,

if I had the CC driver or standard game version.

 

(I always have VW OpenGL set to "maximum performance")

I usually do not extra set driver details in NVidia Driver Tool for VW,

as there where some recommendation tables from VW.

But these were about 4 years old.

 

I would go to Nvidia driver download page and check if their driver version

is much higher than the driver provided by Asus. If yes, I would prefer to

use Nvidias instead.

 

The CC driver in general should be more optimized for stability while the game

driver on highest frame rates.
