I'm running OS 10.4.10 on an Intel iMac and was wondering if CompositeLabPro will run OK on it.
I see in the specs it's not a UB app, so I was wondering if it will run and what the performance was like.

You can download
the demo and see exactly how it will work for yourself.

I'm currently running VisionLab on an intel iMac, and I have to say I have no complaints. It runs great. As essentially all of the CompositeLab code is also in VisionLab, the performance should be consistent.
I've heard that running the windows version on your intel Mac is actually faster than running the Mac version, due to the delay in a UB, but I'm not displeased with the speed of the Mac version at all.

I remember somebody saying that running it in windows is about 8x faster than in rosetta (PPC emulation on intel macs) so if you do have windows on your mac I would recommend using it on the windows side. Still, I run it on my intel macbook pro, and although it could be faster its fine for small projects.

Try the demo, but I would definately recommend using Boot Camp and installing XP on your Mac. I recently bought a Mac and have had to do this as I find VisionLab virtually unusable under OSX when compared to XP. The difference is quite staggering.

Thanks for the replies, folks.
I guess the best bet is to dl the demo and see how it plays.
