I just downloaded Kyno 1.8 Trial to see how well it will work for my workflow with Resolve 16.2.x.
I have a newly built PC with the following specs:
Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080Ti (running the latest NVIDIA drivers (442.92))
ASUS Crosshair VIII
2TB M.2 NVME Gen 4 SSD (Boot)
2TB (RAID 0, 4x500GB SSD) (video editing)
Dual Dell u2413 1920x1200 SDR monitors (calibrated)
I am testing the software on one of my daughter's soccer games.
The first time I tried skimming through the first of 4 total videos it played back OK. However, when I tried to actually create a sub-clip with in/out points and add metadata, the "screen" redraws began to get messed up. The Metadata, Content, Subclips, Tracks tabs "duplicated/overlapped" themselves. In addition, the entire area below the video playback (excepting the time code, which was also duplicated/overlapped) turned into a solid, if irregular, white block (over the area where the File, Size, Modified, Created, etc. information is displayed).
I closed the application and tried again. I was able to get most of the way through setting the in/out points and added the metadata, but by the time I finished with the first sub-clip and metadata, the area under the Devices (the area where drive/folder tree is displayed) had duplicated itself over the area that was white the previous time.
I do not have any similar problems with any other applications I use, including browser, Resolve, a couple games, etc., apps that I would expect to demonstrate problems if this were hardware (e.g. memory, video cards, etc.). I currently have about 16GB RAM in use and about 46GB free. Kyno is using just under 2GB of RAM.
I have been a formal beta tester for a number of applications in the past and this feels like that. Is 1.8 not a full release?
I have attached an example of the screen redraw problem. In this case, I was able to create sub-clips through about 26 min of video (the end of the first clip) and when I clicked on the "4 squares" icon to view all of the associated media in this sub-directory, you can see what happened.
The only way I know of to "fix" the problem is to close Kyno and restart it.
Is anyone else having similar problems?
Thank you for sharing! I have confirmation from another user that uninstalling Sonic Studio helped with the render problems. We have a private beta version of Kyno with tooltips disabled as those were a candidate for causing the issues. If anyone would like to try it out just reply here and I'll send you the link.
@Thomas I'd love to. I can't use Kyno at all right now, so I'm up for anything.
@Thomas I've monitored this thread over the past year and haven't found a solution to this problem as well. Can I give that beta version a try as well. Thanks!
