I have Carrara installed on my Mac Pro 3.1 (Early 2008) and Mac OS 10.6.8 with Carrara 188.8.131.52.
I have not been able to get Carrara to run right for almost 2 years now (even with my previous version of Carrara). The main problem I have with Carrara is that I get no real-time visual feedback when I drag with the mouse. After I release the mouse button the display updates… so it is pretty much unusable. (It does work fine on my newer MacBook Pro that I purchased last July with i7 processor).
Carrara Tech Support tells me that they “think” it may be a Video Card issue on my Mac Pro?
I currently have an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT Card in PCI Slot 1 and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 in PCI Slot 2 and (3) NEC Monitors connected.
My question is, do you think that if I replace both my Video cards with ATI Radeon HD 5770 Graphic Cards, that will solve my Carrara issue? Has anyone tried anything like this?
I should mention that I own tons of high-end graphics software that I use daily and Carrara is the ONLY APP THAT HAS A PROBLEM with my configuration.
Any incite would be greatly appreciated.
