Black Stage View in MA3D

  • Hello

    Yesterday I had no problem with MA3D, but today it is not working. I only see in the Stage View tab a black screen. No fixtures, no light, nothing.

    The dot2 and MA3D are in the same session, and I can join the 3D, and it loads the fixtures, and if I select fixtures in the 3D object tab, it selects them in dot2 too, but every camara angle is black, no 2D view.

    I tried to join the dot2 and 3D in a new session, but it did not help. I changed the interface, but this did not help.

    I reinstalled both pieces of software and still have no Stage View.

    If the MA3D is not in a session I see the 3D objects.

    I found this error log:

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

  • Hey,

    Thanks for your suggestion, no it is not late. Furtunately somehow, I got it to work. I have no idea how, but after two or three reinstallations, it started to work again.

    On my laptop, where I had this issue, I have only one GPU, which is integrated, so it's kinda slow for 3D, but it gets the job done for me. I have no clue what caused my problem.

    Thank you for your time!
