    Lightwave and Yosemite

    Is it pretty safe to upgrade to Yosemite now on Mac? I'm running Lightwave 11.6.3. Any problems with LWCAD? Really want to get current.

    I'd like to know this myself. Mac OS upgrades are never painless for me. The App store even started auto downloading on me a couple of days ago and I almost unplugged my computer to stop it. If anyone has made the upgrade please share.

    I've briefly tested LW 11.6.3 and LW 2015 on Yosemite while testing DLI_SNUB-Launcher with some network rendering tests and didn't run into any trouble. I'm still doing most of my work in a much older version of Mac OS X though due to some other software I still need to run not related to LightWave. I haven't tested LWCAD though.

    I've been using Yosemite for some time now, and didn't had problems with Lightwave (11.6.3), here.

    I'm running LW 2015 on Yosemite and all is well ... so far.

    Thanks, but that may have been written with Yosemite in mind. I'm really curious how LWCAD fairs.

    I am running LW modeler 11.6.2 on Yosemite and it runs just fine. I have only done a few renderings as my main use for Lightwave these days is to make models for my 3D printer so I use modeler a lot but only used layout a few times, still have not run into any problems though.
