'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.

My desktop MacUpdate as at Jun 24, 2011 tells me that my installed version already is Bryce
Bryce 7.1.0.74 which i installed a couple of months ago.

Albeit, MacUpdate does not always get it right.

Bryce 6 from Daz, Bryce 5 from Corel !!
Bryce 4 and older Originals versions from MetaCreations & Eric Wenger what was been advance over its time, was just loose all theirs interest release, after release…

Just littles debugs with button color change all time…
Always say " 100% more speeder !!"
Daz was not speed bryce, We was just change computer CPU !!

Corel was work fine even it was no reals news, it was work on oSx…

But Daz was trashed this app by do nothing new in spirit of app…
if I could, I staid with Corel more clean,
if the dialog box was not bugged…

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. :(

I am certainly a Bryce fan, but does one rush out to buy a new version simply because there is one out? No demo, no interface screenshots or detailed specs -- just BUY it?

Come on DAZ! Get something out there for us to look at, and maybe we'll place an order.

I have no idea what they mean by:

" *** Note: Bryce 6 will not function installed on a UNIX partition under Mac OS X.***"

but anyway - there is no Itel version yet?

I believe they mean that it needs to be installed on an HFS or HFS+ partition. You can't install it on a UFS partition.

Count me as one who is very disappointed that this isn't a UB. I've been waiting for this upgrade for years, and will continue to wait until it is a Universal Binary.

Come on devs - Apple only makes Intel Macs now. If you don't have a Universal Binary ready to ship, keep on working on your app.
