comment What are other sources of screen tearing?
I read several places that indicated that windows aero used directx and/or was more tightly coupled to directx. I found someone here that had the same issue I had with directx but not opengl. And the forum here suggests that "OpenGl, being tied into your display driver, can actually do a better job...[with vysnc stuff]". I would guess that directx relys on windows aero for vsync but the opengl goes around aero.

Ok I think I understand what you are getting at. Yes, when i tried forcing vsync on in the control panel, I made sure i was in the "global setting" and a set it to "on" instead of "use the 3d application setting". I have not messed around with the multithreading settings as I'm not sure why that would help, and I need to use multithreading in our application uses directx multithreading for performance.

Just took several screenshots (using printscreen) and the tearing (which was visible on the montior) did not show up in any of the screenshots.

My confusion is I don't see anything about "global standart" (global standard?) or "internal" or "Multi-threading" in the control panel.

comment How to pass rendered frames from OpenGL to DirectX 11?
Thanks. I've looked into this. From what I understand, the extensions allow you to go from DirectX to OpenGL, but I need to go from OpenGL to DirectX.
