Hello all. Just a quick question, whats the best Blender 2.49b and Blender 2.5 Alpha builds for a Mac?
My Mac specifications:
It’s a Mac OSX, Version 10.6.2. THe stuff below is what I copied from the “about this mac” button.
Processor: 2 GHz Core Duo
Memory: 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
For starters I’d get the releases from blender.org as your main versions and then say try an updated build from graphicall.org once a week/2 weeks to see what updates there have been. There seem to be new builds every other day so difficult to keep up with everything.
For 2.49: http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.49b/blender-2.49b-OSX-10.5-py2.5-intel.zip
2.5 alpha1 - http://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.50alpha/blender-2.5-alpha1-OSX-10.4-i386.zip
These are both the 32bit versions since you only have 2GB ram. I have seen some definite rendering speed increases with some of the 64bit versions so may be worth giving them a go to see if you get any benefits.
