  • I just submitted another ticket. So frustrated after several attempts. This still is not installing on my Mac with Big Sur

  • Studio will run on my Mac Big Sur 11.4, but Daz Central locks up on the first or second asset I try to open. have to force quit and launch again. I submitted a ticket.

  • I’m also having issues running Daz Central on Big Sur. It crashes when I try to install any assets. I also no longer seem to be able to use Install Manager.

  • Sorry to burst your bubble. Your nVidia cards will cease to render with this update, and you will be left with GPU-based iRay rendering only. Simple reason, as given by DAZ developers:
    “Unfortunately, we will not build a script for the latest Iray render engine to work with older NVIDIA Drivers. It is up to NVIDIA whether they would like to continue support in their render engine and they also choose when to stop support drivers in their render engine. This support is out of our hands since NVIDIA is the company that created and updates the NVIDIA Iray render engine. We only implement then versions of the NVIDIA Iray render engine that they send us.”
    Unless DAZ goes the extra mile, it is pointless to install 4.15 “for Mac”.

    • We apologize for the inconvenience. While we don’t have an immediate solution for older NVIDIA drivers, we may have alternative solutions coming in 2022.
