I was wondering if there were any plans for making your software run native on Intel Macs?

Sorry if this question has been asked a million times. I did do a search but couldn't find anything.

As a fellow Mac Intel user, I feel your pain. smile

Currently, there have been no official announcements from the team about making the Lab programs a Universal Binary. However, they are well aware of the demand, and products like PhotoKey and (the discontinued) VideoWrap! were/are both Universal binaries.

The team has hinted that they are ramping up on the production cycle for the next generation of Lab products, so hopefully they will let us know sooner or later what some of the new plans and features are.

If you try out the demo, though, you will notice that the FXhome team has strived to increase speed wherever possible, and the programs are still very much usable. Alternatively, you can run the Windows version in Boot Camp. smile

I don't know the technical difficulties involved, but it seems like a no brainer at this point.

I've been on the fence with CompositeLab for a LONG time and it seems there's always something that keeps me from buying it.

I would be using it mainly to composite 3D animation.

Look for schwar's posts on the second page of that thread. He explains the technical difficulties that prevent the move to UB. As well as the adjustments the company has made in development of their future software that will allow it to be native on Intel Macs.
