There isn't a tech section of the boards so I guess this must go here.

For Eovia software, I would like to know what advantages and disadvantages there are to running on either platform. If there is somewhere else with this information, please give me a link.

Thank you for your time.

Ohh, always a bad idea to bring this up but okay, I'll bite. The guys who made the software did it on PC's. End of thread. lol

If you bought a Mac, prepare to be willing to buy a PC to resolve the software issue once and for all.

I'd say right now Windows is what I'd definitely recommend because there are no universal binaries for the Mac side. If you buy a new Mac, you'll be running Carrara or Hexagon in emulation mode. Of course if you're interested in MacOS or apple hardware, bootcamp running windows on the new Apples is a nice platform for Carrara (not so much a Hex guy so don't want say how it runs). I do most of my work on a MacBook Pro running Windows.

Even if/when the UB problem is solved, I'd say Windows has some advantages over MacOS; usually better OpenGL drivers, threading is more efficient for the Carrara renderer, and plug-ins from new plug-in developers tend to be available first on the Windows side.

PC of course. Many advantages over Macs currently. More choice too in may 3d applications in general.

I run Macs I much prefer Macs to pc's - but have to agree with the above with regard 3D software.
