Hi All,
Just upgraded my RedGL to 3.02 and it's now so slow as to be unusable.
It also is using about 100megs more memory than 3.01(I have a gig of RAM).
I've checked the prefs and they seem ok.
I'm running Vegas 4.0e, but using the Red engine as a standalone.
I can't believe a maintenance upgrade would do this...there must be something I'm overlooking.
Anybody else have this problem?
All help greatly appreciated.

TIA
Ken

Just for fun turn off the OpenGL rendering and use software rendering. Does it speed up now?

Nope. It's worse. Also,when I test my OpenGL hardware, it now says that my video card driver (which worked fine in 3.01) is not supported.
As I said in the first post, it's also eating up 100 megs more RAM just to run. Guess I'll have to uninstall and re-install 3.01 just to finish this project.
Thanks,
Ken

Now it's worse than before! Can't get back to 3.01...reinstalled 3.0 from the CD and external preview is broken. Can anyone get me V3.01, it's no longer on the Boris website and there is no phone tech support.

All help greatly appreciated.
Thanks

How about delete the boris ini file and then let it recreate it. This helps alot of problems.

Did that. Finally had to download a "new" video card driver...12 MB on a dialup! Red 3.1 had no problem with my existing ATI driver.This at least allowed Red to actually startup, but it appears that a number of things are still broken, especially when attempting to do anything but a simple transition in Vegas. I've gotten used to using Red as a standalone anyway, far less trouble.
Thanks for your reply.
Ken
