  • DirectDraw overlay & menu - bug ?

    As I'm using a DVX-system, I have to use the DirectDraw-overlay as in previous Edius versions.

    With 4.51c a strange thing happens to the menus (fortunately I usually don't use them) => when opening an menu it covers partly the player-window => when moving over the menu with the cursor a part of the menu disappears & only reappears when moving again with the cursor over the same spot.

    This happens systematically on my system.
    BTW:
    - directx is up to date, checked and ok
    - latest NVidia drivers
    - Win XP SP2 up to date
    - etc.

    Does anyone else has the same experience?
    (never happened in previous versions)

    I do see similar things on a regular basis, especially when using the German marker exporter

      That is similar to what is happening here.

        Yesterday I was using VirtualDub with Deshaker and noticed the same menu behaviour.
        So I wonder whether this has something to do with Edius, would this not be a NVidia-driver issue with video-overlay?

          Try this...
          Windows-Break (or Properties on My Computer)
          Click Advanced tab
          Click Settings button in Performance section
          Click Adjust for best performance
          Click OK

          If that fixes it, one of the Windows effects is causing the problem, still probably related to the graphics card/driver though.

            Settings in Windows has always been "best performance".

            I'll reinstall an older NVidia-driver - 93.71 to be precise.
            Actually 162.18 is installed, while 163.75 is available.

            I'll keep you posted.

              I've seen some weird things recently with the Nvidia drivers too.
              Please let us know how it goes.

                Ok, this is what I did:
                - uninstall of version 162.18
                - reboot
                - install of version 93.71
                - reboot
                - standard configuration (almost automatic)
                - problem not solved, not in virtualdub, not in Edius
                I went through the same process to install 163.75.
                No change.

                I tried several settings in NVidia like 3D-settings => quality / fast & in between.

                No change.

                The older interface for NVidia (version 8x.xx) was easier to configure for overlay settings.

                BTW. Dxdiag => all ok and latest 9.x version installed.


                Does anyone has other ideas to experiment?

                (remember, I'm using a DVX-system so only DirectDraw overlay mode in Edius)

                  You haven't changed the Display Properties DPI setting or anything exotic like that, have you?

                    Bart, I think you need to go back to an older version of the nVidia drivers...if you have the original disc that the nvidia card came with, install that if it has XP drivers...if it does not, just go to the nvidia site and look into the archives, then download a newer drivers (only a few versions after the one from the original disc). I've had similar issues on the older P4 system that I sold previously, older drivers seem to work best.

                      I didn't change exotic settings like dpi etc.

                      As my NVidia Geforce 6600 is from Asus, I downloaded yesterday night the old NVidia driver from the Asus site. Version 8x.xx ... I shall try this and keep you informed.

                      Thanks for all the help & suggestions.

                        Windows comes with drivers for NVIDIA GPUs, so if you uninstall the NVIDIA ForceWare drivers from the Control Panel, upon the system restart Windows will install the ones from Microsoft. They are of course older and don't have all the features of the current ForceWare drivers, but they are safe and stable.
