The NinevehGL Forum uses a new concept of "socialized forum" or as we like to say "Tweet Forum".

Here is the deal:
  1. No new registration is required. Just sign in with your Twitter account and authorize the NinevehGL Forum.
  2. Once you’re in, you'll be able to "Follow a Thread", that means every time that thread receive a new post or update you'll receive a mention on your twitter.
  3. Besides, you can enable "Auto Share", then every new post and/or thread you make will be tweeted on your timeline. (By default, auto-share is enabled only for your threads)

Forum Rules:

1. We understand human comunication can become "hot" sometimes. So some insults and bad words ARE allowed. Just don't push too much being an asshole all the time.

2. SPAMMERS are not allowed. There are penalties for this kind of user and they can be banned forever.

3. You can report other users, if you judge necessary. An user reported many times by many people can also be banned forever. However you can also receive penalties for report deliberately for no apparent reason.

If there is a similar thread title, make sure the other one doesn't already have the answer you're looking for.

Hi all,
I'm developing an iPad app using this fantastic 3D framework.

My 3D view is showing a 3D object, and the user can rotate an zooming with gestures.

All is working, but I see a flickering effect sometimes, when I move the object.

The operation made in code are in the drawView:
1) rotation of the object:

_mesh.rotateY = rotateX;
_mesh.rotateX = rotateY;

2) translation of the camera:

[_camera translateRelativeToX:0 toY:0 toZ:zoom];

3) [_camera drawCamera];

Some stuff methods are used with gesture recognition, for changing the parameters of zoom and rotation.

Global settings are:

nglGlobalColor((NGLvec4){255.0f/255.0f, 255.0f/255.0f, 255.0f/255.0f, 1.0f}); // white background
nglGlobalColorFormat(NGLColorFormatRGBA); // for transparency
nglGlobalLightEffects(NGLLightEffectsOFF); // no light effects
nglGlobalAntialias(NGLAntialias4X); // antialias ON


Have you some advices? Thank you

I notice that if I disable multithreading with


the flickering effect disappear.

is mutithreading allowing to draw empty screen?

In response to: @LeonardoBenini1


Hard to say what is going on with your tests. Where you see the flick? Simulator or device?
First time someone see such thing in years. I advice you to send us your project via email for investigation.
