"View NX2 not always opening full screne"


Axminster, GB
          

My workflow of Transfer>View NX>NX2>Paintshop ProX2 (if needed)has worked really well and has been stable & very effective.
I upgraded to NX2-2-6 with no problems, but whenI moved to ViewNX2 ,which in general I like, I now find that it struggles to open images to full screen mode.
I like to sort images by opening in full thumbnail mode, select the first one ,open in full screen ,then cycle through them using the left/right keys,dabbing 1,2 or nothing as my choices.This worked fine in View NX, but now, as I click for the next image I get a black or partially black screen. Sometimes going back one then trying again works and it opens full screen, but this is uncertain.
Most of the files are NEF with a few TIFFs.
Camera is D90. Vista 32 bit, 4gbram.3ghz Intel.
It is maddening that the 'upgrade' is giving me a problem !
Any ideas ?
Chris.

This happens to me and others too. See this thread.

My solution was to go back to view NX.

HAve you tried updateing your video driver? I am using View NX2 on an old Desktop with an E6700 Core Dup chip, 8 GB of RAM and running Win 7 64 bit and I use an ATI 4700 video card and have no problems like you describe.

I just updated to the newest driver for my ATI HD 3400 series on Windows XP 32 bit. I'm running on a Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz with 4 GB of RAM.

Still get the same failure with View NX2; it stops displaying full screen images after stepping through several. I have to exit View NX2 and restart it to temporarily fix the problem. View NX does not have this problem and Capture NX2 also runs without any problems.

Thank you, at least I'm not alone.
Just received this from Nikon Answers UK---

Thank you for the update and the attached files.

The Nikon Head Office in Japan have confirmed that they could reproduce this issue on specific computer environments with specific graphics cards. They hope to produce a fix in a future version, but we can unfortunately not confirm when that will be at present.

Thank you for the report and as soon we receive any further updates we will inform you.

We apologise for any inconveniences this may have caused you. Please do not hesitate to contact us again with any questions regarding Nikon products or services, and we will be happy to answer.


Kind Regards,

Stanislaw Noman

They have admitted a problem !!
Interestingly the effect has been much less noticeable today.
Chris.
