Improper rendering w/Intel graphics


I’ve got a student in one of my classes that is having issues getting her installation of Avogadro to properly render. It’s a newer laptop, initially thought it was an outdated graphics driver, but she is able to render in PyMOL just fine, so I don’t think it’s an OpenGL issue. Here’s what it looks like:


Her rig is running an 8th-gen Intel i5 CPU, with onboard Intel UHD 620 graphics. Thanks for the help!


What version of Avogadro is this?

What OS?


Sorry, completely spaced out on those details. Windows 10, Avogadro-1.2.0n-win32.exe.


Yeah, we’re clearly getting problems on Windows 10. I’m going to try to get a test release for 1.3 going soon and keep my fingers crossed that it will help with your problem too.

I’m hoping that if you try rendering with Avogadro2 that it works better?

The long-term goal is to get a feature-complete version of Avo2 out by the end of the summer. The new rendering code makes solving these issues much easier.


Thanks for following up on this. I also think it was an issue with the
Intel UHD graphics driver – had another student with the exact same issue,
but different laptop manufacturer. Once I upgraded her graphics driver, the
problem was resolved. (This was also the solution for the original student,
which I found out about last week, sorry I didn’t update this.) I’ll mark
the problem solved as of now.
