hi i'm interested in adding a mac to my range of pc's and would like to know if there are any outstanding issues running lightwave 8 on a imac g5 re the graphics card that ships in it or any other major show stoppers when running lightwave 7.5 or 8 on a mac system in general...

as a wouldbe new mac user i'm also looking toward the mini mac as well...

There may be issues with Points displaying properly on some machines with ATI cards (not sure which models, but others having this issue will certainly speak up if they see this thread). The problem has been present in some ATI cards since LW 8 was released, and I am not sure what is being done about it.

The bug, however, does not appear in 7.5d, so you could still use that on the iMac on Mini-Mac when you get one if the problem is present.
