Jitter 1.6.3 beta 1 Universal Binary and Windows XP


    Oct 05 2006 | 7:54 pm
    Hi All,
    Beta versions of Jitter 1.6.3 for OS X Universal Binary and Windows
    XP are now available for download at the following links. Release
    notes at bottom, but this release will be especially useful for
    anyone using spigot~, Macintosh users with multiple graphics cards,
    and people with stereo 3D graphics cards. Unfortunately we were not
    able to reproduce the reported NVidia 7950 GX2 (multi-core) issues
    using multiple NVidia 7300 cards (which seem to work well, btw), so
    for the time being, we can't claim to fully support this card. There
    may be driver updates which solve these problems, however, and we'd
    be interested to hear of any changes in behavior from users with 7950
    GX2 graphics cards.
    As always please let us know of any problems you encounter and
    include example patches, steps to reproduce, and system information
    with your report. While these versions seem to be pretty stable, as
    always with beta software, it is not recommended for installation/
    performance work, and recommended that you back up your work before
    installing and more often while working with the software.
    OS X Universal Binary:

    Thanks,

      Hi Joshua,
      Does the multi monitor fix also apply to depth_grabbing? It seems capturing works but sending the depth_grab message still gives me
      ? error: jit.gl.pbuffer: error binding invalid pbuffer!
      ? error: jit.gl.texture: error binding readback mechanism for capture!
      Mac OS 10.4.7, G5 Quad ppc, GeForce 7800 and 6600, Max 4.6.2, Jitter 1.6.3 b1
      Greets,

      Thanks for the example. Will investigate and see if possible to fix
      for depth as well for the final release.
