I've been having an odd bug occurring on two separate computers. The best way to test this is with the Jitter Recipes Book 3 tutorials.
If I open, say, "Shatter" or "TinyVideo," I must first replace jit.qt.grab with jit.dx.grab, as I am on a Windows computer. My webcam will open fine, but as I activate the patch itself, the render window stays a shade of gray. The Max message window does not deliver any errors.
I've used these patches correctly before, as I tested the demo on an iMac in my school's lab to see if they worked there.
This problem has occured on my XP desktop and Vista laptop. Both computers have the latest service pack and video drivers installed, and both are using Max 5.0.5. Also, other patches using jit.qt.movie with openGL (such as Crumbling Fortresses) are working correctly on my machine.
Am I supposed to use some sort of argument on jit.dx.grab, or is there an issue between dx and openGL? Should I also e-mail this report to Tech Support?
Thank you for your time.
