Yeah, upgrading the dinosaur isn't feasible anymore. Bah, by the time I save up enough for a new Mac, they'll be talking about Puma or Ocelot or Bobcat. :P

Would Love To Use It...

...but it crashes more often than it's up and running. It might be too much for my antiquated iMac running 10.3.9. The funny thing is that it crashed only once when I went through the tutorial. But when I try to do something from scratch, forget it. I guess I'll have to wait until I get a new Mac......

How might it compare to something like Apophysis or Ultra Fractal?

Would just exporting the alpha channel make any difference?

Long Render Time

I'm using the 1.2 beta, and I'm rendering a 300 dpi image at 3000x3000 resolution. The Current Jobs window is saying it will take 13 hours to render! Is that normal or is it because of my pokey 400MHz processor?

EDIT: new problem: the sliders in the Breeding Pool don't work now. Please define "don't work". Do you mean that changing those values doesn't seem to make resulting children different? Or something else? The sliders won't move at all, not by dragging them or using the mouse wheel. (I'm not sure if...

It still quits when Live Feedback is set to "None", but now I don't need to reboot to get it to accept a new setting. I found the global color controls and changed the color mode. No difference. Also: only the spectrum gradient in the Color window (fourth choice in the menu) doesn't cause the progra...

Changing the Live Feedback to "none" caused it to quit, and it took rebooting the computer for it to realize I had changed the setting back to "Fine".

Changing "Color Mode"? How do you do that?

I updated the software and configured the mouse buttons to just "click". No change. Except for one thing: you know how the Color window opens right on top of the document window and the program freezes when I tried to pick a color? Well, I moved the Color window to where the desktop wasn't covered b...

The mouse that came with the computer went south the first year I had it (six years ago). I've been using Logitech mice since then. The newest one (cordless) I bought a week ago because the last one was tracking badly. I guess that's because the software didn't support newer versions of OS X.

Clicklng doesn't seem to be a problem. I dragged the mouse over the mandril for about 10-15 seconds, then it quit.

I've been working with the software to see if there are different ways to do things and work around the stuff I can't do the usual way. Clicking and dragging the image in the document window causes it to hang like I've been saying. Dragging the frame to the drop targets is fine. I can rotate it usin...

I spoke too soon. I tried to change something on the Details screen, then it tried to quit and hung. I had to force it to quit to get rid of that spinning beach ball.
