UNUSABLE IN Win-8

I just installed Win-8 on my machine.  Bryce had been running reliably on my Win-7 installation but now its impossible to position rotate,  scale and/or rotate an object.  When I try to perform a rotation the object spins wildly,  Scaling and positioning are also wildly accelerated!

I tried a new installation with exactly the same result.

The graphics card is a Radeon HD-5450.  Any suggestions.

Look at vid card s/w driver settings; sometimes there is an ability to slow down the speed capability.

I have never done so but it has worked for others on other 3D programs.

I have no problems with mine

Windows 8 Pro 64

But my video card is an Nvidia

The Radeon drivers used by W8 may not be quite right at the moment.. maybe download the latest from their website and try again.

I’d have to second the thought above that it’s faulty Radeon drivers. I remember in the past other AMD GPU drivers (ATI back then) weren’t quite right for one of the windows releases, XP perhaps? And it took a while for them to get it sorted out and get a better driver out there.

Maybe better not to get Windows 8 until the bugz are out.
For windows its always better to wait a while before getting the new version.

Personally Windows 8 is so not ever going to get installed on any computer I own.

Same here. I’m really not happy with the direction they’ve taken windows 8. I dont even own a smart phone because I hate all those stupid little applications, now windows wants me to turn my desktop into a giant smart phone. NOT for me.

Yeah.  I have seen some people posting scrren shots of their desktops after installing it.  THis is how my desktop looks, and I like it this way.  If I could work out how to do it I would get rid of the Trash bin icon as well

The task bar normally auto hides. even

you can get rid of the recycling bins, change desktop icons and uncheck recycling bin.

if you gave win 8 a chance I bet you would like it. it takes about 5 minutes to “get it” then you’ll like it. Its almost like moving from windows 3.1 to 95.

No sorry I know I would hate it.  That is just me. I don’t like Win 7,  Every version of windows that comes out takes more control away from the user, more nanny mode things installed. I like to have control, I run the computer, the computer does not run me.

Windows 8 - is that yet another smart phone? No thanks! I’m not going to bang with the fist on the screen. It never helped.

More serious: the only Windows I’ve ever installed before a service pack was out was 7 and I regretted it. Now, SP1 is installed and 7 looks usable. Changed from Win 3.1 to 98SE, to 2000 SP3 (now 4), XP SP2 (now 3) and always had a workable opsystem. But I’m not repeating the stupidity I did with 7.

Thanks Horo.  I won the halfling village in a contest, when it first came out, and that was a render I did for them to say thanks. My backdrop changes, depending what I am working on. I find it is a good way to work out if the image is working out.

And it looks as though I did much the sane as you with OS, with the exception that I have only just now given in and bought a PC with Win 7, and the latest Sr

LOL @Horo smile
My updater tells me to install SP1 but it somehow doesnt even start downloading while all other updates downloaded just fine.
Windows is just getting weirder and weirder.
My fav version was W2000.
