  1. Yeah I also thought that it could have to do with the extra workload, but I've tested with a restored window practically as big as the maximized window, but it goes from total smooth in restored to total stutter wreck in maximized. I also checked the GPU load during the UFO test and it barely reaches 10% in both cases. I hope Big Muscle checks this thread so that maybe he can give us some insight about this weird problem.
  2. At 60fps I don't have the problem. Only at 144fps, but it's extremely annoying because it's so stuttery and it affects scrolling a lot. I also used another tool other than the command line tool and the problem was the same. This one I think: http://winaero.com/comment.php?comment.news.199and the problem was the exact same. Yeah maybe the driver, but I've tried an earlier version and the problem remains. I have a GTX 680. This is so weird. Why would it only affect a maximized window? What does the taskbar have to do with the rendering of a maximized window and not a restored window?
  3. Hello, I've been using aero glass happily and even donated to the effort. I really love the blurred transparency effect. Wanting that also in my taskbar, I downloaded the command line tool to change window's composition attributes and turned my taskbar blurred. Perfect, it looks awesome! BUT! For some reason I can't explain, when the taskbar blur is enabled, my Firefox browser stutters greatly. I've tested it on http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameratesand it only happens with the taskbar blurred. As soon as I return the taskbar to normal, the framerate goes back to being butter smooth at 144fps (I have a 144hz monitor). Even more strange is the fact that this happens only if my browser window is maximized! If it's just restored, even if almost fullscreen, this problem doesn't occur! EVEN MORE STRANGE is the fact that his only happens if I have my 2nd monitor is also activated. I can't for the life of me explain why this happens only explicitly if these 3 conditions meet: - taskbar is blurrred - browser window is maximized - 2nd monitor is active Anyone can give me an input on this, or perhaps a solution?
  4. By correctly configured, do you mean we still need to use a custom theme? Or will the glow in the atlas file be enough with the Windows default theme?
  5. I was hopping that would add the missing glow on the file explorer windows. Probably I have no idea about what I'm talking about. I still have no idea how to enable it. Any tip?
  6. I have the same problem. Since Tuesday's updates I have an error message saying DWM is incompatible with aero glass. Any fix in the works? Or a way to manually update the symbols. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but the problem persists.
