Twilight Render and macOS M1 processors

Post by Chris » Thu Mar 24, 2022 3:24 pm

Please note, at this time Twilight Render does not run natively on the macOS M1 processor. If you have a macOS computer running the M1 processor, you will need to run SketchUp using the Rosetta 2 application. You can find out more about using Rosetta via this article from "MacWorld":

Please direct complaints to Apple/Mac, Twilight was working great until they made this monumental change.

Has anyone tested this on M1 running rosetta? Just wondering if it performs well/better than an older Intel computer.

P.S Is there any future development to make it work on ARM silicone? (Apple claim it's ' a little work' to translate it to native - but that could mean months still!)

It seems to be working stably so far. But it seems to me that when native support is added, it will be much better.
I have one favorite site. See this page if you want. There you can get bonuses.

I tested Twilight Render Pro with SU 2022 on a Mac Studio but after a couple of days I sent the Mac Studio back.
It was not much faster then my 2017 5K iMac with i7 7700k processor... Due to Rosetta 2.

I do think Apple sillicon is a great platform. Other apps I use that have been ported to Apple silicon are definitely faster.

IMO it's a question of costs / revenue for Twilight Render to be ported to Apple silicon.
