I just got a new intel Mac, i think dual core. 2*3 processors.

i'm running lightwave 9 on os 10.4

i'm trying to render a simple scene, 4 objects 5 images, 5495 points it has ray trace reflections on but nothing else significant.

rendering at enhanced low

its rendering at almost 2 minutes a frame. what gives? also in the render status window. it says memory 760K, is that how much ram it is using to render the scene? i have like 4 gigs?

any suggestions?

Hi,

You're using the PowerPC version of LightWave, it sounds like. Check your downloads page on http://register.newtek.com/ and grab the Universal Binary.

It will be MUCH FASTER on Intel hardware.
