Go here
to download a free version. While not the best 3D software out there, it does have some use and you can easily make some nice imagery.

Oh man, I was so nasty at Bryce when I was 11 or 12, now I'm really sad I didn't keep any of the images.

LOL!

Stop whining, it's free.

But I understand your feeling. Luckily I'm still running Panther.
:) Don't get me wrong, giving Bryce away for free is really nice of them.

Nice find. Too bad Bryce 5.0 isn't compatible with Tiger.
Why do you think it's free? ;) I may download it just to have it incase I back down to Panther on an external drive or something. Might come in handy.

Thanks for the link!

I cannot save in Bryce in 10.4.7. Anybody else have this problem?
Same, whatever happens I have to cmd option esc as clicking save/save as somehow makes the menubar hide permantly.

Probably explains why 5.5 crashes under Tiger.

No, havent had that problem at all. What is everyone running? Is it on G5s, mostly or what? On my G4 dont have any problems so far. Saves ok in 10.4.7. I can even import it into photoshop without problems. I find the rendering a little slow, tho. I think their recomended requirements should be 1.25mhz. I cant imagine running it on their minimum 500mhz, gaaaak! :eek:

Whoa, what was up with that serial # ? LOL :D

Anyone gone for the $20 upgrade to 5.5?

Yeah G5, but why get 5.5 when this is why they are giving it away as 6.0 is coming out.

*** Note: Bryce 5.5 will not function installed on a UNIX partition under Mac OS X.***

That explains why 5.5 is buggered with me... though that doesn't make sense...
Dont know just curious if anyone had gone to 5.5. I've been playing around with Bryce and its kind of fun so far. I just found one bug tho, the help function crashes the program. Ow! :( It also doesn't feel complete like its missing alot of presets and textures?

Anyone know if 6.0 will be universal or what the requirements will be? Maybe 5.5 will be last that can run on G4s? I tried looking real fast but havent seen anything on bryce 6.

I cant believe this program is still around, its been bought and sold how many times?!
Why not? Good old Metacreations made many nice little programs like: Painter, Infini-D, Poser, Kai's PowerTools etc. There must be a market or they would have just ceased to exist a long time ago. :)
