DAZ: will we get a 64bit Hexagon version for Mac and PC ?

PIN THIS

maybe others feel the same that Hexagon needs to go 64bit very soon, like ASAP

Hexagon 32bit is so old architecture with great potential, but for the sake of its mere potential 32bit isn't gonna cut it anymore

what we need is a solid 64bit Hexagon that doesn't blow because of three levels of subdivisions

also we need more features for detailing a mesh, better UV tools, better this and that

 

have your say here and DAZ might have time to fall over this thread and do something in the positive direction to make Hexagon stay on the market for a long time

    From the Beta thread:

    We have updates planned for Hexagon in Q1 2018 that include (but are not limited to) 64-bit support

    Update obviously won't be released in Q1 2018 since we're now in Q2, but that's definitely planned.

    If you check the threads about this,  including the Sticky threads at the top of the forum you will see that Hex has recently had an update,  and that the 64 bit version is being worked on and will be along some time in the not too distant future.

    my apologies - I guess I was ignorant about the headlines as it didn't imply a 64bit version as general release, well, I got that release and it isn't 64bit

    given the statement that 64bit is not a priority but stability... this approach will backfire

    The first update was mainly for stability, adding 64 bit support will take longer to do (and, apparently, longer than was initially hoped) so holding the stability update for that would have added an unneeded delay to that. It isn't a measure of relative priority.

    I spend about 20 Euros on Hexagon which is far less than it's actually worth and now it's free (again for the second time) which is great and of course it's not of utter urgency but acceptable "development-speed" given Hexagon's age for how long it's been like this and nothing happened until now - looking forward that everything goes well because I don't want to see such a great program getting wasted and even less so that corporate decision makers get rid of it altogether for not knowing its true potential in the 3D industry (we all seen it before...)

    thanks for your feedback Richard

    Any update on when the 64-bit version will be released?

    @Cris,

    Thanks for the link and it's great to 'meet', so to speak, one of the 'coders' (Rob)working on this. I can imagine that there is a lot to do and only hope that the original code is beautifully commented to make the task a little easier !
