    I ordered a new laptop especially for using Lasershow and Lightshow software (ASUS K95VB-YZ051H - Core i7, 24GB RAM, SSD drive).

    Now as I wanted to install Windows 7 (I don´t like Windows 8), there were problems while installing and ASUS support says "no Windows 7" on this laptop :mad:

    So my question: will Beyond run fine on Windows 8 or do I have to expect any problems while working with Beyond under Windows 8?

    Hi Reinhardt,

    Such PC should work fine with BEYOND, good choice. Francesco use Asus Zen Book, Win 8, i7, etc, - it work fine. At present time I am not aware of any problem caused exactly by PC with Windows 8, if PC itself correspond to minimum requirements of BEYOND software. You choice is very good.

    Best Regards,

    Where can the hardware requirements for different versions of Beyond be found? (I assume they are quite similar). I was thinking of upgrading a graphics card, but not sure if it's actually causing the framerate issues. Anyhow, couldn't find system requirements anywhere on

    It's the complexity of the animation/shape/cue and your galvo's PPS that causes frame flickering. A video card might help with rendering the output on your monitor but even with a 5/10 yr old video card it will be faster than galvo's.

    Read Bill's tips and tricks here for advice on how to correct flicking outputs:

    fyi: If you have a new question please start a new thread. The Hardware requirements for Beyond are in the first page of the manual:
