Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am quite inexperienced with VDMX so i hope there is a simple solution I am not aware of
VDMX opens with blackscreen and I cannot do anything as there is a notification about the new update I have to acknowledge but I cant due to the black screen (tried to toggle fullscreen but that does not work either)
Hm, it sounds like VDMX is going fullscreen on launch, but you should still be able to toggle out of it normally!
The one similar report to this that I had recently was a pretty odd case where the person had downloaded an example project file from our website, and it somehow got stored in a weird tmp cached directory on their computer, and VDMX was getting stuck trying to load it on launch.
(I think they had a think called ‘Zipeg’ installed that might have been related?)
(If you could launch the Console application (found in /Applications/Utilities/) and switch to the system.log view (on the left side), and set the filter for VDMX, launch the app – then copy / paste that into an email for me I could confirm if that was the case for you as well.)
Beyond that, my initial suggestions are to try…
- You can try deleting the VDMX preferences file (use the ‘Go to Folder’ and enter ‘~/Library/Preferences’), but make sure to reboot after doing so as the macOS will sometimes cache prefs files in memory, and it doesn’t always refresh if you manually toss a file.
- Deleting the app and downloading + running the latest installer!
hey thanks for the quick response! managed to fix it by disabling my wifi so i did not get the notification, then i could exit fullscreen mode
