Thinking about getting a G5 dual proc. Have now a G4 DP using LW 7.5 OS 9.2 - does anyone have the G5 DP using MAC OSX with LW 7.5 ? Are there any glitches? Looking forward to LW8 - hope there are no glitches with that and MAC!!!

Now that the 10.3.3 update is out, LightWave 7.5 is virtually glitch free.

Compared to your G4 DP, the speed of the G5 will blow you away.

Also, in my opinion, you haven't really used LightWave until you've used it with OS X.

People are recommending to hold-off buying G5s right now as there are some new models on the way, but that will have to be your decision.

I'm running lw7.5c on a G5 DP 2ghz machine. Now that OS 10.3.3 has cured the GE crashes all that remains is the erratic mouse behaviour. Oh and keep 7.5 and 7.5c as some third party Lscripts were broken in 7.5c and some Lscripts only work in 7.5c. Put as much memory into it as you can afford, at least 2.5GB and have lots of fun.

thanks!~ It's for work and I pretty much can load it up (G5 DP) - but as of yet, just looking into it, probably will go for it by the end of the year.
