I am attemping to record a training video for 3dsmax 8 using
captivate. Both applications launch just fine, however as soon as I
begin working in 3d my screen goes black and my monitor flickers.
When it comes back I have no display in my 3d viewports. When I
restart 3dsmax says it cannot find a 3d card. Somehow, my hardware
acceleration gets turned off. It apperas to be just this combinatio
as other 3d programs work just fine.
Anyone else experience problems like this?
I have updated my graphics drivers, 3dsmax and windows.
You might check the following setting in Captivate. Click
Options > Recording Options... > Full Motion Recording tab
and see if you have a check mark in the "Record at higher full
motion capture rate for smoother movie". If not, try clicking to
place one there and see how it goes. If one was already there, try
DE-Selecting the option and see how it goes.
If neither setting seems to help, I'm at a bit of a loss as
to advise what to try next. Maybe someone else has some ideas about
other things to try.
