Default Re: Problem with 280 gtx using Maya

happened to me ever since the 8800GT.
But only in XP, been working fine in Vista sofar.
I was trying tons of stuff to get it to work in XP, but never found anything that worked.

Another oddity is Motionbuilder performance is abysmal in XP and Dual View, works fine in Span mode, and if you set single display acceleration for OpenGL in the drivers, but then you can only really use one of the monitors as the windows are drawn with OpenGL and wont work on the other screen.
But in Vista MB runs fine in Dual View.

Bit Ironic that these OpenGL apps work better in Vista IMO..

Btw if you find selection of highres meshes slow and laggy, add this line to the Maya.env file.
set environment variable MAYA_NO_VERTEX_ARRAY_SELECT = 1
