Blurry Dreams UPDATED

Hey guys. I had to do a fresh install of Windows 10.  I have installed klite mega.

 

All dreams are blurry.  Any ideas?

Nevermind, adjusted something in Radeon settings, all is well.

 

Thanks for marking it solved, whoever you are....

Not solved. After a reboot, dreams are blurry again.

 

All dreams.

Well, oddly, if I download one from the gallery, and start it by clicking Open file in my browser, it's blurry, and changing dreams from that point are all blurry.

If I then disable DS, then renable it, blurriness goes away.

Is it just dreams that are doing that Jim? Just wondering if your graphics driver is up to date after the fresh install.

Most recent gfx driver from Radeon.  Just dreams. 

I have done the purge deal, it didn't even succeed at uninstalling DS.

Doesn't work.

Did you try changing the settings from media foundation

to one of the Direct Show settings ?

did you install the latest version from your account

not a saved version in one of your folders.

and always do REBOOTS.

I have installed klite mega.

One should not need to do that at all for DS...


Nevermind, adjusted something in Radeon settings, all is well.

What did you adjust, RND....?  DS 10.02 was working just fine prior to the reinstall of Win10, and the not needed codecs, yes?


Well, oddly, if I download one from the gallery, and start it by clicking Open file in my browser, it's blurry, and changing dreams from that point are all blurry.

If I then disable DS, then renable it, blurriness goes away.

Can you post video of any of this, RND....?

Where do you have DS installed, RND....?

I needed codecs before. I always install Klite Mega.

 

The adjustment in my Radeon settings was a fluke. Can't remember what it was, but the only time the blurriness occurs is when loading a dream from the downloaded file.  Applying a dream from withing DS Config isn't an issue.

Where do you have DS installed, RND....?
The default. C:\Program Files (x86)\Stardock\DeskScapes10

 

Dreams in Public Documents, as per usual.

I can try.

As per usual, it won't do it when I want it to. Next time it does, I will capture video.

Do you suggest I uninstall Klite?

Seems to be fixed.

Nope. I load a dream, blurry. Disable DS, then open DS again, set a dream, it is fine.

 

Working on the video, Sean.

Ok, finally got around to the video.

 

https://www.screencast.com/t/AM9JQkNmrYvY       I get this when I click the downloaded file to install/run a dream.

 

This is how it looks once reapplied.  Happens with all dreams.

Dunno why the vid is jumpy, but note the blurriness.

 

The dreams run smooth on the desktop.

RG, the videos are made by Jing, to share. I can't do anything about the format.  Support will see them.
