WIP Black Screen

Ive just installed the latest WIP and im getting a black screen on open in all the viewports. Is this a OpenGL Bug? Is there a fix for this?



Yes, most likely.
What is your display adapter and how old are the drivers?

See screen shot for my Graphics card. My Rhino 5 viewports work fine and as far as im aware the drivers are up to date.

That’s probably Rhino
Jeff is working on a fix for the AMD cards.
Hopefully he will get it cracked and sorted soon.

when i open rhino wip i also get the black screen - if i drag a rhino 5 file onto the wip to start - then the viewports show as normal.

Hi Keith - you will need to get a hold of a newer GPU driver. In the Rhino Notifications panel, follow the links to the website where you should be able to find these.
