3D Studio Max on mac book pro using bootcamp?
show user profile  Justin101
Hey all,

Any thoughts about running 3D studio Max 2011 64bit on a mac book pro via bootcamp?
Has anyone done it and is it worth the hassle or should I just stick to a PC laptop?

No problems at all. My main machine at work was a Mac for a few years.

As an aside, its best to keep all questions that are related on the same thread. No point in starting 3 topics all about the same enquiry.

There is a point mike_renouf.
I asked different questions in different posts as they came to me
and I maximise the amount of responses.

Thanks BishBashRoss.
I'm looking into it.

bishbash was it a laptop though?

i had a horrible time with max via bootcamp on my macbook pro, it wouldn't display properly some days, most days the top tool bar would disappear after an hour or two and i'd be force quitting all the time, it got so fucking hot it was scary and the fan noise was so loud it was crazy - i ended up on here with people helping me buy a pc for about £600 -

in your other thread you're looking at buying a laptop - i personally wouldn't recommended it for max just because the long hours i was spending doing lessons and then projects on a laptop were fucking my back and i didn't realise it

This is so true, it's hard to get a comfortable angle when working and you always find yourself "leaning in", but don't realize it for a few hours, because your so focused on what you are doing.
I can run 4 miles without struggling, but after a few weeks hunched over laptop my back starts to give out after a mile, laptops are bad for your health.
I have to use one at the mo' because it's all I've got, but take regular breaks doing situps and leg raises...also helps to stop the belly grow :)

Apple...

Hmmm...

Christ, just buy your laptop already. If it dies, too bad. Mine overheats like hell but is still alive.
