You may note that, beginning with V2.12, we are dropping support for 32bit (x86) installs of SketchUp. This includes some versions of SketchUp 2015 (the 32bit version) and all versions of SU2014 and prior.

Since SketchUp dropped 32 bit support 4 years ago, it seemed a reasonable step to move forward in that direction as well. The primary motivation is certain software components that TWR uses (or will use in the future) are only available in 64bit. The secondary motivation is that it will simplify our configuration management by about half. Since SketchUp tends to use a new Ruby release with every other SU version, the different "variations" of TWR tends to add up. Dropping support for versions before SU2015 allows to cut that almost in half. We will be able to produce updates faster and easier.

We know that there are some users that are still using 32 bit versions of SketchUp (some as far back as SketchUp 7!). You can still download and install the final 32 bit release, v2.11, here: https://www.twilightrender.com/index.ph ... 6-installs.

Also note that the minimum version of MacOS/OSX is now OSX 10.11. We don't expect this to be an issue as virtually every Mac user is on version 10.13 or 10.14 at this point.

Please note, there appears to be a framework problem with V2.12 on MacOS Mojave. We have replaced the current OSX download with the previous, V2.11, until we can get a fix implemented. We appreciate your patience. This only affects OSX users.

If you are on MacOS Mojave, please try this download and let us know if you are able to render without crashing.

We have released an update for OSX, backing down from a minimum OSX version of 10.11 to 10.8 (which is what previous releases have been). If you are a Mojave user and experience crashes using TWR V2.12, please try downloading the V2.11 version linked above.

We've updated the MacOS release with V2.12.15 (available on the webpage). This should take care of most of the issues encountered with Mojave but please let us know if there are issues (and please include steps to reproduce them if at all possible).
