Scrambled GUI in Fu16 [FIXED]

#1

Post by SirEdric » Tue Sep 08, 2020 12:42 am

Fusion version: 16.2.4 and 16.2.3



OS and version: Win10



Additional relevant system info:
RTX 2070, latest Drivers



Description of the bug:
When I start Fu16, the interface is totally scrambled, overlayed with green lines, which makes it entirely unusable.
Fu9 runs just fine on the same machine, so does Resolve and all other graphics software.
This issue appeared like a bolt from the blue and I don't recall changing anything to my system.
What I tried so far without any success:
- Updating NVidia Drivers
- Installing 16.2.3 and then again 16.2.4
- deleting Fusion prefs

I've never seen something like this in the last 25 years of using Fusion....


Severity (Trivial, Minor, Major, Critical)
Pretty critical


Steps to reproduce:



Please, if possible, provide a Fusion setup to help demonstrate the behaviour, either as an attachment or between [code] tags:

Just some additional information:
I used OCCT to stress-test my system (CPU, GPU, Memory), and everything was just fine.
As said before, all other Apps, including the Fusion Page in Resolve, run just fine.

The scrambled GUI appears the very moment when Fusion adds content to the interface.
Meaning:
- SplashScreen all fine
- A brief moment (like 1/10th of a second) of the initial Fusion GUI without any menus etc...all fine
- The moment the menus appear, the nightmare begins.

Interestingly, when opening Dialogues, they appear just fine in all that mess....

Righto....
Updating the driver for my onboard Intel UHD 630 has fixed the problem.
Although Windows Device Monger kept telling me that I had the latest driver installed,
there was a newer one available directly from Intel.

I still don't know, why the issue occured from one day to the next,
or why it only affected Fu16 and nothing else,
but ... pheeeewww ... at least I'm back in business....:-)
