IO boxes stutter renderers


I’ve been building a vj setup recently and the interface is made up mostly of various IO boxes. For example - rows of strings listing available patches with bangs next to them to activate.

This works really well, however, I noticed today that whenever the mouse cursor moves over one of the IO boxes (which are very large), or the tty renderer I have open, graphic output on the external screen ‘stutters’ significantly.

Why is this happening and is there a workaround?


This is asked many times before, read what Tonfilm has to say, and download slider test at the bottom of that post.

In short: “I would call the IOBoxes a developer GUI. but never an application or enduser gui”

I fear you got some work to do and build your own interface.
