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.
