Can any mac user tell me if 8.5.0.149 runs on 10.8 Mountain Lion that is officially released in a few days time?

I have heard it WILL NOT! I am planning on buying a new MACPRO in 2 weeks and they will come with mountain Lion 10.8 installed! I am going to have to DOWNGRADE the OS to LEOPARD or 10.6 to use carrara safely and I think that sucks!~

There is no hint as to if and when carrara 8.5 will ever be released.

ALSO NOTE I have read a lot about the latest OSs from apple, from higher end artist, and they all love leopard and most refuse to go higher until some issues with lion and mountain lion are resolved.

Some animators say that LION is significantly slower on the render than Leopard.

However I have read that when you but a new Mac with either Lion or Mountain Lion installed it is not possible to donwgrade the OS. I may be wrong.

Basically if you want to use carrara 8.5 on mac, your going to HAVE to somehow make Leopard 10.6 your OS which is infuriating to me! GRRRR!

I have read on MAC-RUMORS a few times this is no big deal BUT it was in the MACPRO forum seeing thats where my concerns lie.

I have just submitted a THREAD there about just this issue and await competent replies!

I will let you know what I learn!

Frankly i have never seen any modern software apps where one has to downgrade their OS 2 version back to make it work MY GAWD!

Oh, come on now, be fair. When Lion was first released there were more apps that didn’t work in it than there were apps that did. It caught a great many software companies out, and some of them bigger companies than Daz3D.

Surely its Daz responsibility to keep their software updated.
Its very frustrating.
I love the ease of use of Carrara and want Carrara to develop but not being able to use it on the latest mac OS is crazy.
I am using 10.6.8 presently just to use Carrara.

I am running C8.5beta just fine on osX.7—assuming DAZ remembers to provide a serial number on this un-ending beta.

I assume that is part of what they are doing during the current dev cycle. Carrara is currently being developed.

New in Carrara 8.5:

16. Mac OSX Lion support has been implemented

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/2177/

and what I’ve been hearing is the change from Leopard to Lion was extreme, much like the OS9 to X was, while the change from Lion to Mountain Lion isn’t extreme. However, experience is that if DAZ says OS Lion support works, I wouldn’t assume Mountain Lion will until they say it does, and I wouldn’t expect any version of C to run under operating systems other than the ones it’s released under.

Mountain Lion is finally out. Anybody had a chance to test Carrara on it ? I plan to make a switch soon, but I am too afraid that Carrara won’t work in ML. However, there are too many apps that require Lion+ now, so I might be forced to do the update anyways.

Well looks like I am gunna be a ginnie pig soon! Looks like there is NO WAY round getting a new mac that does not come with Mountain lion installed, AND you will play hell trying to get an install disk for lion even if you wanted to down grade the OS!

SP looks like I will stumble along with carrara on this machine running like a 3 legged horse with a stroke on Mountain Lion. I bet it will at least run but it will be hell working with!

PLEASE DAZ! Give your code zombies anything they want to get Carrara 8.5 to run well on ML!

Richard, I think I will download & install ML on one of my older computers and will definitely test Carrara on it. Hopefully this happens over the weekend. I will let you know. Is anyone faster ?

At least you guys know that Daz is working on it. We poor peeps over in the other side of the forum have to wait till they get Carrara and DS sorted before we get a chance of any more dev coming our way.rolleyes
