3D Max Under Apple Bootcamp
by Tom Strong on Aug 22, 2009 at 5:46:36 pm
These questions are for Intel Apple Mac Pro system users running 3D max under Bootcamp.
1. Anyone have experience using the new Macintosh Nvidia GeForce GTX 285 card with Max under bootcamp Windows?
2. What mac video card best supports the 3D Max viewport features (ambient occlusion, etc.)?
3. Any other issues running Autodesk 3D Max under Bootcamp now that Autodesk fixed the license issue?
I'm currently using a beginner 3D program on the Mac (Strata CX) and want to step up to a full-featured program and 3D Max looks like it has a wide range toolset and features and a large community. I work on a mac doing graphic design and some video, but I envision picking up some architectural work, 3D illustrative figures, and maybe doing some involved animations for TV advertising or short films. Max seems well- suited for this variety of work. I know there are other great 3D programs for the Mac, but I'm interested in whether 3D Max can run as well under Apple's Bootcamp as on comparable PC's. I really need to work on a Mac and I can't afford multi systems for my small freelance business.
So anyone out there using 3D Max on a Mac, let's hear from you.
