My Inventor screen picture became much dark as used to be.
For example all my aluminum parts became too dark and too grey.
My office machine has excellent picture within the same settings of Lightings.
Here is video link attached. If I set more Bright the picture becomes closer as used
to be but it used to work fine at 50% and my office machine is also perfect at 50%
Please advise ether it about the setting of Inventors or my videocard ?
I've got this problem after the successive series of program crushes.
There is only Inventor has this "dark picture" problem. Other programs works fine.
Inventor reinstallation did not help.
I did not see your video link. You also don't state what version of Inventor you are on.
So you checked the definition of the lights in the Style editor and they have the correct intensity?
Here it is
Yes it is the correct setting in Lighting style.
And I used to have a nice picture prior to crush
If I switch from Two Lights to Default and other settings they are also dark.
It seems like some one more general Lighting correction exist and it is located in front
of all other setting affeting them all.
For example I should set Brightness aprox 70% at my laptop now while my office machine
within this shining more than too much..
Orest_iy, are you aware that most laptops operate with reduced screen brightness, to save power?
This may explain why your desktop machine looks great but the laptop does not. Try adjusting the screen brightness on the laptop. This may be a BIOS setting or a Video card driver setting or simply a control panel/Display setting.
If you run your laptop on battery power at all, that will also have an impact on screen brightness.
My suggestion would be to live with the default styles, and remind yourself that you are working on the laptop
It could be the reason but I have only the working window of Inventor dark.
The Inventor ribbons, browser and other programs works fine.
I do not think the ability of laptop to save a power in this selective way is so advanced...
Either way all possible setting of my nVidia card I set to default or to disable.
The choice of aplication vs nVidia guiding the screen does make any difference.
For instance my prewiew pictures of files I did not touch after this problem are much more bright
compare the files saved now..
What are your settings in tools..application options..hardware tab? (on both computers)
In the Application Options - Display
I have tried both aplication and document setting.
I the Document Settings - Standard - Settings I have the same light settings
I have restarted the Inventor each time of setting were changed.
If I switch between Default - Two Light and other - all are much more dark as used to be
Both PC has same settings.
I prefer application setting so the Inventor will dictate the Light but not the current file.
After this problem I've tried probably all possible combinations and even reinstall the Inventor
When you Installed Inventor on the laptop and opened the files for the first time, did you get a message dialog asking to convert existing styles to appearances?
No I have not.
Here is something really specific and unusual question.
I have much installation and reinstallation of Inventor I would definetelly draw attention for that...
I looked at the video again, and I think you are running Inventor 2011, is that right?
No it is 2012. The 2011 used to have less lighting possibilities but also less problems with that.
I also find my nVidia 3D setting intended exclusively for Inventor but setting to default gave no result.
The mentioned features are mostly greek for me but I just tried to shift them all out of default and
also without any result.
I have attached the screenshot
My problem is solved.
It has gone after the setting to default the 3D NVIDIA setting for Inventor.
I used to do it several times without result but the trick is this time I have reset
not only Inventor but Inventorview settings.
NVIDIA Control Panel - Manage 3D settings - Autodesk Inventorview - Restore.
I do not know what they ment under the Inventorview but this work out.
I am also did not make any changes there except after this problem, I am spent
a while to realize some settings could exist beyond the Inventor itself.
Inventor is just one program making this HP Mobile Workstation 8740 i7,RAM16G,
NVIDIA Quadro 2800,1G machine to crush.
The video driver sometimes crushes but popup the message it is restored
but everything working after that except the working screen of Inventor.
