Modo ona Mac?

has anyone been able to get Modo to work on a Mac? i just downloaded it tonight and i get a license error when i launch the app.

If you have downloaded and installed the license key and it still does not work, please contact cs@luxology.com directly and we will work with you to sort it out.

Thanks

Yep, it works like a dream.

I believe the instructions said to run the temporary licence command file before you launch Modo. (The download link for the licence file was on the same page as the main Modo download).

So I get a '14 day trial' message now when I launch Modo. Which I guess is how the temporary licence works until I receive my permanent licence number.

I haven't got Modo yet, but I'm very interested to know how it does on Mac OS X. There are reason why Modo should excel on Mac OS X...

1. First 3D app written from the ground up with the most modern OS X / G5 compilers
2. OS X will allow more RAM to be allocated to the app than current Windows systems
3. Luxology's "3D OS" should mean better cross-platform plug-in support.

Some other 3D apps make the Mac users second class citizens. That should all change with Luxology. This app should make your Apple G5 workstation shine!

I got the license error, too, reinstalled, and it worked.

I'm running on a relatively slow G4 laptop (867 mhz). Modo is less responsive than LW Modeller on this platform.

Its very slick, though, and very reminiscent of LW. The surface editor; a bunch of stuff reminds me of LW. Its what should have happened to Modeller. . .a recommendation; if you're a LW user, install with LW shortcuts-- I keep hitting "T" expecting to bring up move. . .

I would be really interested to know how Modo performs on a 15" powerbook with 1.5 gHz G4

modo is really having problems with OS X or these are just isolated cases?


thanks

thanks

i am thinking it has to be isolated coz it was developed on OS X

Just installed on my 17" PowerBook G4 1.5Ghz (BTO 128MB ATI card)... everything went smoothly, performance is great as well... now launching the tutorials and starting to learn.

Problems? I don't think the license key is a major problem.

Don't know how useful the info really is, but my robot in the wip thread was mostly built on my old 800mhz powerbook....
