It is a modern engine that will be faster, and come with features unavailable in Kerkythea as well. 8-)

This is as much as we can currently divulge. We can not give time tables for our next release, but it's being worked on.
Thanks, I'm really delighted to read your answer. Keep up the good work !

It's good to hear this. At the moment, I am still not upgrading my 20 core MacPro to a Mac Studio, for stability reasons and M1/M2 support. Still rendering very fast, I can't imagine how it will be with full support on the new processors!

Hi Fletch,

Any updates on the Apple Silicon version of Twilight Render?
Still waiting to upgrade my iMac to a Mac Studio... :halo:
