I'm experiencing an issue in Illustrator where the colors on screen slightly flicker or shift in value. It is especially noticeable on bright, saturated color. It's a little difficult to explain but the video will show what I'm seeing. This is only happening in Illustrator and it doesn't happen all the time. The screen recording is from my Macbook Pro.
Could this be a hardware issue?
2019 Macbook Pro
macOS Catalina 10.15.7
Adobe Illustrator 25.1
This COULD (but shouldn't) be an issue with your graphics card. It's possible your GPU is creating the problem - although I have to imagine, it's within Adobe specifications. Please turn off the GPU functions at Preferences> Performance, and see if that resolves the issue. If so, maybe talk to Apple about this, as the GPU on that model should be sufficient.
Thanks for shedding some light on this. It looks like the GPU setting is the culprit. However, the problem with the flicker only happens occasionaly. Basically turning off the GPU setting and then turning it back on seems to help stablize it. I'm going to see what Apple may have to say as well. I've also had GPU issues with Photoshop.
Exactly the same problem, looks like this has not been solved yet (MacBook Air (M1, 2020)) turning off CPU in settings solved the matter.
Did you have any response from Apple? I'm having the same issue and turning off GPU worked fine. However, AI is now sluggishly slow moving around artboards.
Running a 2019 Mac Book Pro and having the same issues. It seems turning off the GPU functions have solved the issue.
I'm experiencing the exact same thing. I'm on a 2018 MacBook Pro with a Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB GPU. I'm also experiencing a number of other really annoying GPU-related problems in both Illustrator and Photoshop. Turning off GPU computing fixes the problem but it also results in a huge loss in performance. Very frustrating.
