We tend to build newer updates and fixes based on bug reports that come from the latest versions. Many times users roll back to older versions and report older bugs that were addressed in newer versions. It is understandable that older OS and computer need the older versions, which is why we’ll continue to keep them available, but if you’re using a new OS, you should try to report bugs from the latest version. If it’s something we can reproduce, or happens to multiple users, it makes it easier for us to find the problem and fix it.
There are always bugs, and that’s the nature of any application, but VDMX is always in development. Many times there is user error, or hardware issues, that seem like bugs in VDMX, but are caused by other factors. VDMX tends to push the hardware and software to the limits, and can trigger problems in the system enviornment that are already there.
For hardware diagnostics, I like to recommend Etre Check to identify some pain points for the computer: https://etrecheck.com/
Disk Utility, to check the health of your drive (EtreCheck will do this when you run it).
If you have a bug report or crash using the latest version, please use the built-in VDMX bug reporter as it will give us system hardware specifics that we can keep track of on our end. If you submit the report through Apple, it does not share that, nor a way to get back in contact with you to try and replicate.
I know this is long winded, but it may help some other users in the future to share their problems and help us troubleshoot.
