about openGL and spectralayers pro 6 and 7: i have always used directx (i didn't use it with ARA, only for testing, the possibilies, my tracks aren't finished yet, and because all is midi, accept vocals.. o well, bounce, or render in place, etc. it is last step when all sounds right... so will check when the heat is gone, and the new version will arrives).
so i use it mainly in standalone, directx, nvidia 1060gtx, robin, you referred to a thread, i watch it, and i saw a post from myself i was forgotten.
when using openGL, the menu bar, the menu's will not open, untill i hit F11.
nvidia geforce gtx1060 6gb, latest studio drivers (in the mean time, 2 or 3 versions) (and drivers only..).
also on a laptop, with intel HD630, and you can force it to the dedicated graphics card (although on some laptops nowadays, it still uses both, my laptop too); a nvidia gtx 1050 4gb (GP 107).
i post it here, perhaps it is related.
(besides the bugs, i did some nice things already, for sounddesign.)
i have more remarks, i will make them in one posts. questions/or bugs.
i have the problem in standalone mode with openGL; no access to the menu's. only if i hit F11...
EDIT: the heat makes it problematic to use my studio. but my laptop i can use (their is an airco...).
i changed the API setting to openGL, on my laptop, it works, i thought i didn't force spectralayers pro 7 to my dedicated graphics card (and it has a name, some laptops, still use both graphic "cards", but i see that the gtx1050 is used for 25% when scrolling through a spectral form (spectral form), multiple layers, not as fast as with a gtx 1060 by the way... (and 11% of the HD630). openGL forced to dedicated graphics.
but the menu's i can open, it is only on my desktop, that the problem persists, but i must check it again, but i can do it not for the coming days.
difference: gaming drivers on my laptop (why??), studio drivers on my desktop. and the cards.
i don't know if this helps.
on my laptop, with directx or openGL, i can open a project in cubase with spectralayers as an extension already in it, without problems.
didn't check on my desktop.
when i have more information, because i feel there is something of with the openGL implementation (intuition), and have a list of other questions, i shall return.
