Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

I enquired with Support about this. They acknowledge the problem. It's apparently due to changes in the Mac OS support for OpenGL. I asked if there'll be a fix, they say it will be addressed but can't say when. I don't know how much this affects other Mac users or how many find this problem an obsta...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

Really good screen shots you have there, it shows the problem perfectly! Looks like this could be affecting all or at least lots of mac users so good to let the developers know that it is a wide spread problem. I´ll do this as well. Thanks :) I hope there's a fix, I can't wait to start using Moho 1...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

I also experience the same thing. GPU acceleration switched ON in Mac OS does not seem to do any difference to the preview quality. This pretty much makes raster frame by frame animation useless cause the preview distorts the image too much while playing back the animation to actually see your movi...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

Mac's way to uninstall is to chuck apps in the trashcan, but truth is this is usually not seen as a clean solution. I've never figured out, in fact, why there's no system uninstall. :shock: As for GPU, the Activity Monitor on my Macbook Pro indicates both versions of Moho are using the Dedicated GP...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

Mac doesn't have a native way to uninstall apps? That sounds odd. Did you make sure your computer is using its dedicated graphics for v13? Did you restart your system after the install?

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

Upgraded, but no improvement. The only thing I can think of doing is reinstalling 13 (although, since there is no uninstaller and I'm not a whiz at searching for hidden files, maybe creating more directories might make the problem even worse!). If I want to use the app resorting to Support might be ...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

Not a bug, just trial mode...or not using dedicated graphics on your computer. Upgrade before claiming you've found a bug. Yes, you're right, I guess reporting a bug on the mere basis of the trial wouldn't be fair and maybe wouldn't clear doubts. At least I know that dedicated graphics is working, ...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

Ok I think I've at least isolated the problem. It looks like Moho 13 (or my trial) simply doesn't make use of GPU acceleration. I tested a high-res image in Moho 12.5, and by toggling GPU acceleration on and off I can distinctly tell the quality boost. Repeating the same task in Moho 13 produces ho ...

Re: Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

All my tests have the same preview quality in both versions. My next guess would be that 12.5 is using your dedicated graphics card while 13 is using your integrated graphics. If you're on Windows, you can right-click the Moho shortcuts, chose "Run with graphics processor", and select anything exce...

Do you have GPU acceleration enabled/disabled in both?
Yes, the Preview Modes are identical, including GPU = ON (or OFF, I tried various combinations). As far as I can double-check, the example shows 13 & 12.5 set to the same viewing conditions.

Moho 13 vs 12.5, preview quality loss?

I have problems with the general visualisation in Moho 13, and it's not confined to bitmaps. Even vector brushes look like they suffer poor preview quality. Here is a quick test: the doodle was created in Moho 12.5 and contemporarily opened both in 12.5 and 13. The shapes are clearly crisper and cur...

Re: Stills rendering window not showing controls and badly lagging

Update: altough the UI is hiding the zoom slider, I can zoom out by using a two finger swipe on the trackpad. It's still quite laggy, especially when zooming in. The image I'm zooming is nothing complex, no color, gradients, softened edges. Just a few test doodle lines with a couple of brushes.

Stills rendering window not showing controls and badly lagging

Running the trial version of 13 on a Mac, when I press ctrl-R to render a still, the content doesn't automatically fit the window. I usually can only see a detail of the total image. I try to zoom out but the zooming slider is invisible, tucked away somehow in the render window's lower side. If I pu...

Re: Moho pro 12 faster than moho pro 13

For what it's worth (I guess not much, every setup is different), I just tried to compare some of my more complicated files (in terms of quantity and complexity of animated material, camera movements, etc) and I found no visible difference in performance between 12.5 and 13. The unrendered playback ...

Re: Moho pro 12 faster than moho pro 13

I have not experimented enough with 13 to say whether it's generally slower or not, but in one respect I just found its performance better, and that's in playing back imported video. I have some reference footage I need to add animation to. I've compressed the file from 4K to the same video size but...
