Flicker/white flash

Postby daro » Thu Aug 08, 2013 2:24 pm

UsingFactory 6.5 I made a screensaver with 4 bmp images and a simple crossfade between images. Am getting a flickering or white flash between some images. When this happens and between which images appears random. Cant find the reason why. Any ideas?

This could be graphical bug (related to driver or video card issue). What kind of computer and Windows are you using?

The old version didn't use as much of the graphical capabilities and the animations weren't as smooth. Please check if you have any graphical driver related updates waiting in Windows Update.

Hi again. I checked with our IT people and they say all drivers are up to date.

I'm sorry but I don't know what's the problem in that case. Normally it works just fine on all computers, including my own Dell laptop. If we ever find a computer that has the same problem, we can try to figure it out but until then there's nothing that we can do.
