just to confirm, C1 4.6 will not work on my G5/Leopard 10.5.6/??
I installed it, it boots, tells me that it works best on a intel based mac, continue, and POOF, it dies
I have it working on my dual G5, it is very slow but seems to work ok.
"Works best on an Intel Based Mac" should be interpreted in the following way: "May or may not work; proceed at your own risk" or basically you're leaving the mapped road (the tested and supported environment) and entering the wilderness (untested environments).
We have at least two customers running 4.6 stable on a PPC based machine. However, we have several others who were not able to.
All of us (vendors, software writers, hardware providers, end-users) have, to some extent, been screwed by Apple's switch to Intel. With the next version of OSX which will not support PPC expected very soon, and increasing likelihood that Adobe and Microsoft will not support PPC in their next major software revisions, the decision was made not to spend equal time testing on Power PC machines.
Capture One 4.1.2 supported Power PC, so that is one option for G5 users who don't want to stay with C1 3.X and who don't want to upgrade their computers.
Remember, I don't make the decisions. I just report whatever facts I know.
