Why not a linux/MacOS version?

Post by johanneseich » Mon Jul 23, 2007 9:18 pm

Why are there no ports to any other platforms such as linux or MacOS of Indigo?

I think the scene of Mac-Users is big enough for a OSX release of Indigo,
using indigo in a emulated virtual pc environment is kinda crap, because the long rendertimes are streched even longer.

i love the rendering outcomes of indigo, and im sad about it, that i cant use it on my mac...
and i bet alot of people are in complete agreement with that.

is there any version in planning?



best regards johannes eich

Feel free to buy Ono a Mac, and I'm sure he'll have no problem releasing a mac version.


OOTH, technically, Indigo shouldn't be that hard to port (if nothing else, the console version).

This is spoken as a non-developer of Indigo :P

you dont need performance (you can test that on the windows client), you just need to know it runs!

Perhaps your old rig could become a linux box.... or even do a multi System Box on your new baby :)

With a machine like the one you orderered Ono, I'm sure in a Virtual Linux environment you will have no trouble at all. Thx for that extra effort ;)
