Default Isoparm issue

Greetings all, Im currently studying Maya at university and am in my third year. an issue (that seems to only occur on my home computer) has been plagueing my isoparm tool. each time I click and drag an isoparm across a nurbs surface (when red) it jitters and leaves a trail of multiple red isoparms whenever I stop moving the cursor across the surface. (this happenes no matter what shape the surface is) However as soon as I release to create the isoparm it does create my isoparm and the other red ones dissapear. I've put up with it untill now as Im finding it hard to see the red isoparm that I want to create in amongst the others blocking my view. any help would be fantastic

You might want to try updating your video card drivers.

Try a higher res on your card but also to get the isoparm to work you have to the menu 'edit nurbs' and hit 'Insert isoparm'. otherwise it wont work on release

Look at this link for so called qualified drivers;

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...112&id=9683256

I also have this problem some times and i think it's because it's an ATI card when i had NVidia i never had problems like this.

Good luck
