Cinerender Surfaces Problem

I'm running AC25 (3011) and have noticed a glitch with the Cineware Surfaces dialogue boxes. All of the preview images for Noise are black! The previous iteration of AC25 was fine. FYI, I have upgraded to Big Sur 11.6 which may be part of the problem.

Try to also perform a graphics card driver update and see if that is any help.

Isn't that part of the OS on the Mac? The graphics card is an Intel UHD 630 - but AFAIK the driver is part of the Mac OS.

You do not have a dedicated graphics card, like and Nvidia or AMD?

Graphisoft strongly advises against using Archicad on computers with only integrated graphics:

Recommended graphics cards for laptops
We have also good experiences with most of the dedicated Nvidia's GeForce cards, somewhat middling experience with AMD/ATI cards, and very bad experience with on-board (integrated) Intel graphics cards. Definitely avoid the latter at the moment. Although integrated graphics cards (iGPU)  are gradually improving in terms of performance, still perform quite badly for 3D demanding applications like Archicad.  At the moment, AMD's Ryzen processors with integrated Vega 10 & Vega 8 graphics processors perform significantly better than the rest of iGPU solutions and on par with Nvidia's low ended dedicated GPU line (MX series).
