Q:   Why am I seeing discolored or distorted graphics visualizations in CORMIX?
A:   Occasionally, the graphics visualization tools in CORMIX like CorVue, CorSpy, CorPlot, or the CorHyd Diffuser Visualization application can render discolored or distorted images on your computer.

Such distortions may include large black areas, distorted color schemes, or colored (e.g., pink/purple) striations across the rendered graphics.  

Based on reported cases, the problem mainly occurs in laptops with integrated graphics hardware with outdated drivers.

Here are some troubleshooting steps:
1. Please download and install the latest CORMIX evaluation version on another computer. Run the CORMIX evaluation version and the visualization tools, without activating a CORMIX license, to see if the problem exists on a different computer.
