It has been noticed that sometimes the Editor can't be started (or at least with WebGL errors) and then can't be used. That problem has been noticed mostly on devices using Intel HD Graphics.
Intel HD Graphics
There are 2 options to fix the startup problem
Changing Windows settings
- Open the Windows settings and search for
Graphics Performance Preference, select
Desktop Appin the drop down and then browse to the
BabylonJSEditor.exe, you should now see it added to the list.
- Click on
Babylon JS Editorin the list and click
- Set your preference to
High Performance Mode.
- Close and reopen the Editor.
Updating the Intel UHD driver
Install the Generic Intel DCH graphics driver (the
Driver Support Assistant is recommanded).
Read the caveat, but in short: your default drivers are usually customized by the manufacturer, but this generic driver is not. Obviously you run the risk of screwing something up.
