Blender & Maya on same machine - issues


(SMaturin) #1

I have a Mac Powerbook G4 running Mac OSX Tiger.
I had previously installed Blender 2.37 and it was working fine.
Since I last used blender I installed the trial version of Maya 7 just to try it out and the next time I went back to use Blender I found that Blender would load but wouldn’t do anything. Some of the menus in the menu bar will highlight but if you select them nothing happens.

I removed blender, downloaded it again and “reinstalled” but that did not fix the problem.

Does anyone know of any compatibility problems between Blender and Maya? Is there anything in particular I should be doing to uninstall/reinstall Blender besides removing its folder from the Applications directory?

Thanks

In windows, maya consumes all the graphics card resources and leave blender with nothing…

are you trying to run both simultaneously?

Funnily enough, I also have the trial of Maya 7.0 and Blender and it always works for me. Even when I run them simultaneously they both work.
