v2 beta screen issue

Hi Micha, do you have a video card with a pretty limited amount of memory (Video RAM) on it? What are the specs for your card?

The only thing I can really think of is that using AA in Rhino probably consumes quite a lot more memory from your video card's available resources which then does not leave enough video memory available for MoI to allocate video memory buffers for its own use.

Also if it has been a long time since you have updated your video driver, it may be a good idea to do that since maybe it is some bug in the video driver relating to having OpenGL (which Rhino uses by default) and Direct3D (which MoI uses) active at the same time.

At any rate, that message is only shown by MoI when there was an error reported to MoI by Windows when MoI attempted to initialize the Direct3D display system.

Most often this is due to an older card that does not have support for the bit depths that MoI needs to use, or if someone has turned off hardware acceleration to make a screencap system work, which is why that message talks about these things.

But there are other possible ways for Direct3D to fail to initialize such as insufficient video memory.
