Thread: LW 11.6.3 and OSX 10.12.1 Sierra Install Issue

  1. #16
    Yes I still have a whole set of every prog I have running under SnowLeopard, and yes the only and I do mean ONLY reason I updated to Sierra was because of bloody Photoshopping CC, but thats no excuse for LWGroup not doing some sort of bare minimum maintenance

    Have you looked into Affinity? I've switched from Illustrator to Affinity Designer. It also has what they call a pixel persona, which are pixel based layers. I now use it for everything I've used Illustrator/Freehand for in the past as well as most of what Photoshop was used for. They also have Affinity Photo if you need even more high end Photoshop type stuff. And the best part is no subscription!

    Agreed 100% -- Mac LW users always seem to get the "short straw" w.r.t. LW3DG fix/maintenance effort, but this current situation is deplorable.

    I installed onto a USB thumb drive using the "minimum" setting.
    Copied/paste to my Mac drive and all is good.

    Fringe benefit is I have a USB that runs LW.
    So that really does seem to work running from a USB drive? Any stability or functionality issues??

    I agree with the "Short Straw" comment.

    Hey guys, I have been a long time user of LW but I have not been out here on the group much at all. In fact, I lost my sign on which went to an apparently dead e-mail and had to create a new profile today. So I'm writing because much to my surprise last night I went to load 11.6.3 on a Sierra Macpro and of course LW installer does not work. So I came out here and found this thread and realized that this is known situation. So if 11.6.3 doesn't work with Sierra, how about LW 2015? I have used Cinema 4D previously, but I still prefer Lightwave.

    I considered trying the 2015 demo on the Sierra machine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am more than willing to upgrade if it works.

    Thanks

    Frank P.

    This is the best approach, as it also gives you a chance to judge functionality/stability of the LW features you care about most.
