OK this is driving me insane already.
We have this car that needs be be ready for a car show. The car puter system will be a highlight of the car features. Road Runner is going to be in the spotlight. And so far I have been unable to get a single Viz to play nicely with RR. The Avisual stand alone viz program works better than most at least being able to run as a imbedded application.
Until that is, I get this horrible strobing effect at 10 to 20 second intervals. I notice this as well some time with other Vizuals when attempts are made to run them full screen. the difference is that as an inmedded app Avis aits in a blank window where as othe winamp plugins pop the viz full screen infront of RR. In those cases every 10 to 20 seconds some of the RR buttons flash thorugh the Viz display. The flicker at the same rate as the strobing effect that I am getting with Avisual Imbedded so I am sure that the two are related.
But because in the imbedded window the RR buttons are on a bar at the top you do not see RR controls flashing in the middle of the vis screen. But the (Flicker / Strobing effect is really distracting making the Viz one step above worthless)
I do not get the flashing / strobing effect when the viz is run out side of RR it happens only when the two share screen space. And it is not a CPU loading issue. I have only 30% to 40% CPU utilization.
As it stands We will just play music and run the VIZ stand alone or Use Windows Media Player 10 to get a appealing visual on the screens. (Have 4 screens hooked up to the comp) Then exit media player and open RR to demo other features. It would have been nice to be able to run the car show demo infront of the judges using only RR as the front end.
But the show is tommorow and I just do not have anymore time to devote to debugging this Viz issue.
