View port Screen gray

I downloaded the Omniverse but View port is gray. Couldn’t see imported asset in the View port. Please help.
Thank you,

same problem… View port is gray. Couldn’t see any asset in View port. Please help.
Thank you,

Grey sometimes means you are not using an RTX capable card. Are you both using RTX cards?

Thanks for your reply. I’m still in GTX world. Probably that’s the reason.

We are working on version on the Omniverse App that can still work with old GPU using HdStorm more easily
but already if you have a GTX you should be able to launch the omni.create.hdstorm.bat that is in the same folder as creaete , using the Launcher you can find the folder where the app are installed and that that bat file
let me know if you can’t find it I can give more details

Hi Dfagnou,
Thanks for your reply. I can’t find it. Is it in the “sample” folder under localhost\NVIDIA\Sample?

@mikaelworks -
Here is some info to run Create with HD storm. This works for a GTX 1660 that i have.

NVIDIA-SMI 461.92 Driver Version: 461.92 CUDA Version: 11.2

Using storm will not display materials or have the true RTX Omniverse experience, but you can play around.


How about when I use two GPUs? I have the grey viewport. Now I suspect its because Omniverse is using my secondary GPU (GTX 1080 Ti). The main one is a RTX 3080.

How can I set which one to use?

@malmqvist.martin -
can you send me your Create log file(s) at this location (zipped)


Let me look into repro and solution


here are the log files. Thanks

logs.rar (895 KB)

@mikaelworks - The logs you sent for have a 4/19/2021 date for the Create log. Thus do not think they show the latest info. Did you try and start Create from the command line as in my response?

Can you help me with the syntax.

The right syntax :

cd C:\Users\Mikael\AppData\Local\ov\pkg\create-2021.1.1

Otherwise you can go inside Create → “Help” Tab → “App Launcher”.
