How to fix screen tearing?

Question

  • 0

Your card may be brand new but it may have been sitting in a box on the shelf for a while.  There may be newer drivers for it by now.   Check on the manufacturer's web site.

Mac drivers are included with OS upgrades. However, to determine what card you have, select “About this Mac” from the Apple menu, then click “More Info”. Under Hardware select Graphics/Displays
If you are not sure what type of video card you have, use GPU-Z found (win only) here. For linux, in a console use: lspci | grep VGA

Screentearing on a running image is coming from the upper and lower image part not updating syncronously this can happen when your Framerate goes over the refresh rate of your monitor , which often is 60hz , in this case having more than 60 Frames per second can result in having screentearing. To prevent that from happening you´ll have to enable Vertical Sync which is not on by default in Viewer 1. in Viewer 3 this shouldnt happen as Vertical Sync is forced on in these and cannot be disabled anymore.

But beware the option is called Disable Vertical Sync, meaning it must be UNCHECKED to enable it.
