BrightAuthor for Mac?



Not a support question so much as a general query. Are there any plans to port the BrightAuthor software to Mac OSX? I would have thought that with so many graphic and video professionals using Macs/Final Cut Studio that it would be on the cards. Any chance?

    I know some customers are running it in windows environments like parallels, but this hasn't been a common request from our customers.

    Am using Brightauthor on a Mac with VM ware Fushion,
    works fine, except for the fact the macbookpro doesn't have a normal DELETE button.

    I'm surprised to hear there hasn't been much interest in BrightAuthor for Mac.
    The VM Ware Fusion looks great but I'm still on 10.4.11 though, oh well...

    I'd been trying to use BrightAuthor on 10.4 running Parallels, but whenever I'd make a new touch action, BrightAuthor crashes.

    I had to borrow a PC laptop and use BA that way.

    MacGoof. Try Function Delete. The Mac delete it actually a backspace.

    I'm a Mac user and I wanted to use BrightSign players to play multiple channels of video in a continuous loop.

    It's not obvious, but you can do things like that with a simple text file. (You don't need BrightAuthor at all.) I wrote a complete guide on my website with downloadable scripts that you can use. It's easy. Hope it helps somebody.
