!!!!!! THANK YOU :-)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can finally(hopefully) open my .3b files that were too large to reOpen on 32bit 3DC OSX.



EDIT: So far so good, no major bugs/crashes. I'm seeing a frame-rate gain as well, looks like I'm getting about 25% more FPS now with this build. And a few minor glitches with the 32bit OSX 19a build are gone now in this 64bit build, !!! good stuff. Thanks again Andrew(and company)

yeah, to chime in again, its VERY smooth, noticeably smoother than the 32bit version. This is a very mature alpha/beta, especially being the first 64bit OSX build to publicly test.

And for me, since a number of 3D apps on mac use control, not command, I personally dont mind.(especially since I use windows and linux often enough as well)

By all means ifxs! +1

Impressive OSX build, :clapping: :clapping: :clapping:

What I reported to mantis already is that CTRL key is broken! CMD key instead. This is wrong.
For instance all navigation and the opposite of a brush works with cmd.

Lot of tests, 64 bit build shows the difference.
For the first time here, OSX 10.6.7 crashed. I had to repair (safe mode). This isn't good. It happened during auto retopology test on a 10 M vox. I can't provide any stuff, sorry.
Waiting for the next build. Please test it first, before uploading.

I thought beta software was provided as is, with possible damage responsability of user agreeing to use a BETA software. But I may be wrong, beta software MUST BE TESTED to be a good beta final. Ok ?Posted Image

I'm not complaining, trying to give some valuable reports.
This isn't possible always, especially when an app kills the OS
But having ctrl key off, this is something else. Indicates that nobody tested anything. Difficult and hard to navigate, difficult to test behavior of tools...

So far the only major bug I have run into is a voxel destruction / artifact bug after undoing/apple z after using the pose tool.
This is true whether undoing from the pose tool in surface mode or using the pose tool in normal voxel mode.

NB: this becomes apparent after multiple undo stages not just a single undo

See image attached.

Aside from that so far this update is my favorite yet with great brush response. So happy to see a deform cage in the pose tool - it's a wonderful addition.

OK, lot lot of bugs... lol
what should we do? I reported two of them already (ctrl issue among them)
But crashing OS ... I didn't like it at all.

Orthographic projection is another issue. Especially under retopo room

As we're all mac users here, as we'll probably have lot of OS crashes... an advise
After crashing, restart holding shift (safe mode) so OSX can clean all cashes. Then restart (not shutdown) In case you didn't know it. :)

Hello Mac users!
1. Regarding CTRL/CMD key. CTRL key will be enabled in the next build, but please specify, which button should CMD key duplicate – ALT or CTRL?
2. michalis What type of background image was that? “Camera > Background > Choose background image”? It seems like it works as expected. What about other types of background image? Do they work?
3. moska Does the application crash? Please try to run the executable from Terminal. It may output some useful messages.
4. michalis Was the 32-bit version of 3D-Coat crashing the OS?
