| p.1 #5 · Lightroom 5.2 - problem with loupe on 2nd monitor |
Lars, the fact that people such as yourself have no issue with it just makes it more frustrating for us. You may well be right about the card memory but even a big monitor only has 4-5 Mpx, requiring up to 15MB in the card (one byte per colour per pixel) to store the entire content. It would take lots more memory to hold buffers for fluid motion work but for static images practically any card should do - and if it wouldn't then Adobe could easily have found a little laptop to test it on and see the problem. Mine has 512MB or 1024MB depending on whether I use the Intel graphics or the discreet AMD card. It will happily run two monitors with different stuff on each (e.g. Lr on one and a spreadsheet or web browser on the other) so long as Lr is not treating one as its first screen and the other as its second screen. The problem is not card specific, not monitor specific, not computer specific, but those of us who have it can repeat it easily within a very short time. Maybe it's something to do with Open GL or whatever, but in such a case I'd still expect Adobe to find the link in their testing.
One trouble with buying laptops is the restriction on upgrading things like graphics capability but I can't do much about that now.
