Need a solution
« on: December 26, 2015, 03:18:47 pm »

Hey, guys. I sure some of you guys have noticed that I tend to sort of pop my head in every couple of months, and that's only because I'm currently living in Norway with only access to a Macbook, so I can't run Anim8or at all (not with Bootcamp, at least, and I don't have Parallels). I'm looking and digging for a solution because I'd like to get back into it.

How do you Mac-owners make use of Anim8or? Maybe there's a cheap, small computing device like Raspberry Pi that I can run maybe Windows XP on and get Anim8or going?


Also: Is it appropriate to post something like this? I wish the forum had a few more places to post things that are slightly off-topic like this.

If you can't run Bootcamp or Parallels, and are willing to spend money to run Anim8or anyway, you can try the CrossOver free trial and see if it runs Anim8or.

Otherwise you can give online virtualization a try. Cameyo runs windows apps on their server and lets you work with them in the browser or using their app. It may be a bit slow and delayed though, especially if you don't have a super-fly broadband speed.

I made an Anim8or package and put it online that you can play right in your browser: https://online.cameyo.com/apps/635867432143792552/play

By the way, it's also a way to run Anim8or on your smartphone or tablet ;)

Hey Raxx, That is very cool! There is a slight delay but Anim8or in a browser is amazing.

Davdud101:  I often run Anim8or on Virtualbox with Windows 8 on my iMac. Virtualbox is similar to Parallels and Fusion, but a bit tricky to install and configure. Virtualbox is free, but you would still need a copy of Windows. For more intense Anim8ing, I use Bootcamp and the same Windows partition in order to have the benefit of better graphics drivers. Early on, I tried Wine and Crossover but had no luck with either.
