I'm interested by the Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE for mac (after effects CS3)

But in the pdf release notes, it is written that :

"• Please note that the 4 filters in the BCC 3D Objects category require MacIntel systems with MacOS 10.5 (Leopard). PPC systems will be supported with an update in the near future. "

Can somebody tell me if an updated version supporting Power PC based Mac is yet available or not ?

thanks to everyone

Unfortunately, 3D objects remain accessible on Intel Macs only. PPC macs usually lack the graphics processing power as compared to newer Intel machines. Considering that all 3D extrusion and rendering is done on the graphics card, PPC macs are not the best choice of platfor for these newer, cutting edge 3D effects. I hate to disappoint some of our customers but the odds of pulling something as compute intensive as 3D extrusions are not in our favour.
