I used to love this program back in the day. The fact that nearly 5 years on DAZ still hasn't updated it to work on OS X 10.7 and above just sucks. I would gladly pay $20 for a version that would work on El Capitan. Sadly, I don't think that day will ever come.

Don't waste your money buying this program. It doesn't run on any recent OSX Version and the current owner (DAZ) hasn't upgraded it in over three years and it doesn't look like there will be any in the foreseeable future (unless they sell it to someone who actually has an interest in this program). Bryce is an excellent program with a user interface that is still lightyears ahead of any other 3d software (thanks to Kay Krause!) Why DAZ hasn't done anything to keep it running on the current OSX is beyond me. It looks like they only bought it to silence the competition. Can you imagine what it would be to run Bryce on the 'Coke Can' Mac Pro? Awesome!

'Bryce 7 Pro' for $19.95: Apart from the FREE Bryce Personal Learning Edition (see the link kindly commented below), there is 'Bryce 7 Pro' for $19.95 here: http://www.daz3d.com/bryce-7-pro It works ONLY through OS X 10.6.8. It is NOT for 10.7 or 10.8, apparently meaning that it requires Rosetta, thereby being a PowerPC CPU version. If you can work with the hardware and OS constraints, that's a nice price.

The incompatibility has nothing to do with Rosetta. The app has been broken since 10.7 due to bugs and API changes, and they haven't been willing to invest the programmer time to fix it.

that's because their software was always 100% slower when a new chip or Mac OS was released. Besides with mutli-processor support...finally!...it actually might be 100% faster :)

Bryce has one of the longest update cycles of any application I've ever known, and that it has changed hands between several companies seems to have not helped the situation one bit. Rather than incremental bug patches as they are found and squashed, we have to wait six months or more for a monolithic update that often causes as many problems as it solves, only to have to wait months to years again for nothing but a paid version upgrade which again, may add a new feature, but also introduces new bugs while old ones get left only partially resolved. That said, I've loved this program since its inception. I just wish it were easier to get the libraries from the old versions working in the new ones.

It's a shame that this is PPC; at least there's dual processor support. The video demo looks pretty good - rendering seems to be a bit better than previous versions though still not even close to Maya. For $99 you can't beat it. PS the DAZ website is very slow and the screenshots don't appear. :(
