View Full Version : MacBook Performance

Sorry if this has been asked before, I didn't see anything specifically targeting the MacBook (non-pro) when I did a search.

Is anyone running Lightwave on a fairly current MacBook? I realize that this device doesn't have a dedicated GPU, but I'd think that would only be an issue in very high polygon count scenes/models.

I'm looking to get the next iteration of MacBook due next month and I was curious to the performance others have had. First thing I will do is max out the memory. :)

I have the latest MacBook and I'm really liking how LW 9.5 runs on it.

As you mentioned, there might be problems with high polygon models but I haven't tested that out yet. There also might be some OpenGL issues with complex scenes due to the graphic card not being as good as the pro version.

For instance, I remember reading After effects is buggy because of the graphic card.

I maxed out the memory and I'm glad I did :thumbsup:
