I’m trying to get Blender running on G5 imac. It’s running osx 10.4.7 with ati radeon X600XT video card. Maya runs pretty smoothly on the same machine. Blender is extremely slow, almost unusable when in edit mode editing objects that have more than 10 000 vertices. In object mode it runs very smoothly, just like it should.
I myself have a linux/windows background and I’m completely lost with this mac. I tried searching elysiun and blender.org forums but didn’t find really anything. I hope there’s some way to speed the edit mode up, since I have to deal with imported cad models now and then.
Help would be very much appreciated.
