I sat down to work, and opened up the .blend file i was working on. Everything looked fine in material preview viewport window until i switched to render preview view.
Image is of my material preview looks fine.
When i went to work in render preview, this is what i see:
Then, when i try to go back to the material preview, blender crashes.
Any ideas? It just started doing it today.
Yesterday i updated windows 11, and updated the nvidia gameready drivers for Diablo 4. I did not run blender after that, so i have to assume this is the cause of the issue.
Today I have tried: switching nvidia gameready drivers back to creative drivers. Uninstalling Blender 3.5.1 and re-installing. (Running the file in Blender 3.4 worked for a bit, but after a couple crashes (and loss of a couple hours work) it started doing the same thing.) Nothing is visible in the render preview except my rig. Anything with a texture is showing as dark grey silhouette.
Next i guess i can try rolling back my Windows 11 update. and if that does nothing, maybe roll back my graphic drivers as well (although the nvidia creative drivers aren't updated as frequently as gameready drivers, so i doubt it would have much effect since i was working fine with them a few days ago).
Anyone know why its happening?
