Is Carrara dead?
DAZ has a story of abandoning products users would have liked to be able to use on a Mac: e.g.: Bryce, Hexagon...
Hexagon was basically unusable on a Mac.
Bryce can't even be properly >:-(installed on a modern Mac anymore.
Is Carrara next in line? In other terms, is Carrara EOL just like Hexagon and Bryce were?
You need to hire and RETAIN developers, if you realistically intend to sell software:
You can't possibly think of offering software you outsourced on a hire and fire basis and just drop support after product introduction.
If you persist, you are upsetting your users, and I humbly suggest that's not a viable business strategy.
