    I've been running it on my MacBook Pro under Windows with Bootcamp. Works pretty well.

    But I also wonder though if it will be available for Mac at some point. *Crossing fingers*

    I am staying away from Bootcamp so hopefully they do put out Something that will run natively or can be run with X11 AND WINE.

    Sculptris will run under wine. but some hotkeys and shaders while painting won't work.

    Those few (but important) issues aside, I have it running on my MacBookPro in OSX and it runs very, very smoothly.

    Sadly there have been no word from either Pixologic or Dr.Petter about a native OSX version. However, I can't imagine Pixologic not supporting the furture versions of Sculptris for the Mac.

    WTF is wine? I'm also one of the people who stays away of installing windows on my iMac.... and don't have a clue about fiddling with codes. All I wish for is a native Sculptris for Mac. So, is there any official word from Pixologic about their plans?

    P.S. Is it true that "material painting" is not working under wine (whatever wine is).
    Is it buggy?

    From the wine website:
    Run Windows applications on Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac OS X.

    Lightbulb Sculptris_a5.app

    Hi there!

    I have build up a Sculptris-App for Mac which is based on Wine! You can find it here:

    http://www.digitalworks.at/files/Sculptris_a5.dmg

    The only thing you have to do, is to make sure to have the latest X11 installed (especially if you are runnning MacOS X 10.5!!)

    Than just download, double click dmg, drag to your favorite place and run it! ... No need of confusing wine installation!

    Due to wine the bump mapping doesn't work in paint mode yet ... and the shortcuts are different to the original one:

    Working shortcuts:
    rotation = command+left mouse
    zooming = command+Ctrl+left mouse / Mouse wheel
    panning = command + right mouse
    UNDO = command+Ctrl+Z
    tool settings = command+Ctrl+space
    smoothing = Shift + left mouse

    If Sculptris freezes (mostly due to a wrong shortcut) just click to an other window (like Finder) and than go back and it should work again!

    Have fun!!

    Leto

    PS: You use this at your full own risk!!
    PPS: Due to the fact, that the new download link at the pixo site didn't work for me at all, I've used the version 1.0.2 of Dr. Petter to create the app.
    PPPS: If Pixologic don't want me to host this "app" on my server, just give me a hint and I will delete it immediately!!

    LetoAtrell I have given your link to several Mac friends. I am a PC user but you rock. It's a Good thing you have done. I really hope Pixilogic will continue to let Mac users download this until they come up with a Mac Alpha 5 version.

    BUMP!
    They say time is the fire in which we burn. Quick! Someone get a fire extinguisher!
