I’ve worked with Bryce as tester and user for many years and have invested literally thousands of dollars into Bryce related products. After updating to Lion ... On a new 64 bit MAC, I can no longer work with Bryce. I haven’t seen any warnings not to purchase either Bryce or Lion and find any mention of a ‘MAC’ version of the program disingenuous on DAZ’s part. Please don’t tell me there’s a hidden warning on the Bryce product page. The fact that it’s hidden or not obvious is actually outrageous.
I’m posting this morning because I was checking in yet again and thought after going to the product page that my old friend had been finally updated. Took a look in here to check it out and found this thread
Bryce was my mainstay. I have resisted saying this but I feel hurt and consequently angry at DAZ’s blanket dismissal of customers like myself. And I can’t express how sad my loss of Bryce as my mainstay tool has been to me.
Thx for listening,
I understand the feeling but it’s not really a matter of Daz dismissing Mac Customers. The issue is that Daz is not as big or as powerful money wise to do more then they have done. A big part of the problem is that the software any developer would need to know to be able to upgrade Bryce isn’t something widely in use and therefore there are too few developers up to the task and the ones that are, are quite expensive to hire. This led to an unfortunate situation where the guy to fix it was done with his contract and moved on, before the problem with Bryce and OSX Lion or above was realized. So Bryce has had to be put on hold for now but for what it’s worth fixing it for Lion has been reported as a top priority for when it does go back to developement.
Unfortunately for people like you or me for that matter (even though I use a PC) is that while Bryce is very dear to us we (Bryce Customers) make up a very small segment of Daz’s customers. Therefore it just makes good business sense for Daz to devote more time and resources to the products selling well then to devote them towards Bryce. As much as none of us might not be happy to face this reality that fact of the matter is we’re very lucky Daz hasn’t given up on Bryce completely.
