hi all. I would truly appreciate help on this one- is it a hardware incompatibility? is my hardware/software malfunctioning? am I stupidly overlooking something? any ideas would be welcome...
I recently bought a new geforce 7600 gs video card. Everything is fine and dandy, except for one probelm which occurs only when using dualview with the second monitor as a fullscreen window output for my patch (which happens to be something I do frequently..). The video plays fine in the fullscreen monitor, until I put a slab in the processing chain- that's when it all goes black. Nothing else gets that response- not using vj software with dualview fullscreen ouput + fx, such as resolume or neuromixer, nor using jitter patches with and without opengl contexts, all which work fine. only slab doesn't render for some reason.
In one test, I slowly dragged the output window from monitor 1 to monitor 2. The slab actually kept working until the last pixel of the window has moved to the second monitor. Then it all went black. again.
It also works fine in "horizontal span" mode. but that's no real comfort.
any and all input on this would be appreciated.
