Pixels flicker if zoomed on uneven percentage


Go to solution Solved by Rick Brewster,

Hi,

 

i've today first witnessed probably a when zooming the canvas deep.

 

If I zoom at 400%, then scroll out to 357% and move the canvas to all sides, it sometimes happens to appear that the pixels flicker in their size, when I move things around.

It seems like they are not fully fitted to the Pixel grid.

 

I've recorded the effect: https://youtu.be/vHxMXSzCZn4

 

 

I can't tell an universal way to reconstruate this case, sometimes it happens immediately, other times it takes some scrolling to show the effect. It does not happen at even zoom levels (like 100 or 200%) and also not at every uneven one.

 

Greetings

Tobi

Sadly not.

 

Actually, there's reason for you to be happy. If it's a "real" bug, it will likely be fixed soon. If it were due, for instance, to your having an outdated GPU, you'd probably just be stuck with either living with it or going without hardware acceleration.

This is a rendering artifact that happens sometimes at non-integral zoom levels. (non-integral meaning not a multiple of 100%, e.g. 100%, 200%, 300%, etc.)

 

Nothing's wrong with your system or configuration. I looked into this awhile ago and I'm not sure it's possible to fix, but mostly it's just not a high priority right now.

 

So the workaround is to set your zoom level to the nearest integral zoom level. Usually pressing Ctrl + (zoom in) or Ctrl - (zoom out) will accomplish this.

Thank you for the reply and explanation.


My GPU is a RTX 2070 and I was a bit worried whether its has anything to do with possible GPU problems. But thankfully it's what it seemed to be and i can understand that has only low priority as it is only a cosmetical thing! :)
