I’m having a really rough time with my editor today. I’m not sure what the problem is. Windows update? New antivirus? Other open programs? Who knows?
When I open the material editor or material instance properties, I get one of a few possible problems that’s making it impossible for me to make new materials and material instances.
When I click in anywhere in the material editor space, I get a new mask node, which makes me think that my editor is detecting a key press–whatever key it is that is the shortcut for creating mask nodes.
And I can’t control the material preview. The material preview window shows nothing there, and I can’t move the camera as far as I can tell. And the material instance preview either zooms really far in, or really far out.
Sometimes if I press Shift, the camera will zoom in to a more useful perspective.
Is anyone else having this problem? Any idea how to fix it?
Update: Now instead of creating mask nodes, left-clicking in the material editor is creating “unspecified function” nodes.
Update 2: I restarted my computer, and several services failed to start. But after I started them, it now looks like everything is working. A couple days ago my drawing tablet wasn’t working right and I had to restart my computer. And I occasionally get a video memory error beep code when I start up. I think my computer hardware must be burning out.
