"Do buy the hype about this product from its fans"

Until recently, I did not feel compelled to review. I've replied to one review (scroll down) if you want to see my comments more in full, but I'll summarize:

It's a mac-port of a PC Program. Stability, support, reliability all lacking on a Mac. Company attitude: "Get a PC." User group attitude: "Get a PC."

It uses non-standard patch-based modelling rather than the more universally accepted Sub-Division Surface technique. Since most renderers now support dynamic SDS, their is almost no advantage to patch-based modelling for charcacter animaiton.

It claims many advanced features that are so poorly implemented to be almost unusable.

It is so unstable that it is an exercise in frustration to actually learn the program and even old hands trip over existing bugs.

Company attitude is" "We're a small company, so you can't expect a quality product." If you don't mind that, then I guess A:M is OK. If you have to make a living, it's completely unacceptable.

Tiger version more than a year late. Their response? Blame Apple.

They proudly point out the three or four alumni who have gotten "industry Jos" while ignoring the *thousands* (maybe tens of thousands at this point) who will have nothing to do with A:M and Hash.

Caveate Emptor! Steer clear if you value your time and money.

Purchased this less than a year ago and it wont run on TIger. Id love to deal with a learning curve, but the developers might want to keep up with the technology. Last piece of software I buy at Macworld SF presented by a slick, paid for, front man doing a demo on how easy and support orientated the company is. Its all been a waste.

    A SSE4 version is now distributed too , the installer for this version detects if the cpu has the capabilities for this version , otherwise it doesn't install. This results in needing a secondary installation packet . To avoid to download the false packet You can look at http://en.wikipedia....ped_by_CPU_type if Your mac supports sse4.2 or open a terminal and type "sysctl machdep.cpu.features" (look in the output for SSE4.2) or look in your Master.log (Avaible instruction sets)
