    7.5c is maintenance only, meaning all fixes and no new features, and the difficulties in the Mac version are the primary reason for there being a 7.5c. The update will be released for both platforms simultaneously.

    Thanks for the info Chuck! Made me feel a bit better.

    Hmmm. Be sure you send info about this to [email protected], but if the OS update introduced the bug, it may be something that another OS patch, not a LightWave patch, would need to address.

    Actually, i notice the 10.2.6 update is now out, and specifically addresses some OpenGL bugs - does it address the one you mention?

    Hi Chuck, Yes I updated to 10.2.6 and thought it would fix the problem but it didnt

    Well actually the problem seems to be ATI-radeon based since no mac-nvidia user gets the problem. So maybe its not Lightwave, but why would apple update their OS if it only get worse? It could be a major change in the openGL engine that causes the crash in Lightwave.

    well more on this issue is here: http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthre...&threadid=3257

    Thanks for the reply Pensart.

    I know ATI has sometimes bad drivers, but how come Lightwave worked in previeus version of Jaguar. And, isnt it Apple that writes drivers for ATI-cards?

    The 7.5c update is posted! The OSX version does include three of the plugins previously not in OSX - Reduce-Polygons, Reduce-Points, and Rest_On_Ground.
