Re: 3-D display locking up under NT, jdk1.2.2, Java 3D 1.2

Hi all,

Could this have something to do with "gamma correction" in the
hardware/software?

In the past we have found odd behaviour with various hardware/software
combinations where gamma corrections were sometimes being applied by
software and again by hardware in some configurations and not at all in
others. The brightness for an image can vary depending on whether a
image is mapped directly to display pixels, used to texture map a solid,
whether lighting is enabled or not in hardware etc. Some cards seem to
do gamma correction with 3D acceleration but not for 2D windows, etc.

Sorry I couldn't give any more insight but it may be worth looking into.

Tim.
