iMac or PC?

Post by bmutterb » Sun Sep 02, 2018 3:38 pm

I am interested in purchasing Pyware 3D version 9.2. However, I've read that higher specs are needed to run the software. I only have an iMac (27 inch) right now. Should I look into getting a PC or gaming laptop, or will an iMac be sufficient? I would most likely be writing drill for up to ~250 performers.

My specs:
Processor - 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory - 16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
Graphics - AMD Radeon R9 M380 2048 MB

Thank you!

I am running an older iMac as my test machine. You should be able to run the v9 on that computer. If you are working with larger bands 175-200+ you will need to turn off shadowing.
