Mac users beware! I own the pro version. Customer support is the worst. The program does not do as it promises. You can’t import video into your scene like you can in windows version. Bugs and glitches or so many. reallusion treats Mac users as second class. They will take your money. Thats about all they will do for you.
I like the program for Windows. But for Mac it is Limited.
