We currently do not recommend that you upgrade to Mac OSX 14 Sonoma until we’ve done more testing, worked through bug reports, etc. If you do plan on installing the latest version, or have already done so.
Don’t update if you’re in the middle of a big project that might get disrupted.
Please submit any bug reports through the built in bug reporter via the help menu when VDMX is open.
If you are currently on Mac OSX 14 Sonoma, please share your experiences here.
Based on some recent feedback, it appears that the Quartz Composer and CoreImage FX can lead to crashes in Sonoma on certain systems. It’s worth mentioning that Quartz Composer is deprecated by Apple, so some future updates may address these issues, but generally speaking more users should transition away from using Quartz Composer FX all together. In anticipation of this, VDMX has an option to completely disable CI & QC content in the VDMX preferences.
I’m still on older 12.x and 13.x where the tool officially works, and will stay there as long as I can, but I’m relieved to learn that according to this post on the Logic Pro Help forums, the tool seemingly works fine on Sonoma 14.0. So hopefully its also gonna work for the future.
(Note I haven’t tested this myself, just relaying info)
It works for me and it’s a god send. How on earth do you guys avoid the dot without it?
I have two systems (Macbook Pro M1 still on 12.6.1 and Mac Mini M1 on 12.6…x? the latest 12.6.x, I don’t have the system with me right now) and they both work fine, orange dot gone, no problem installing it.
I had some problems with the tool and security updates yes, but the problems where reversible (I could reverse the system to previous state). I communicated with the app developer, I wasn’t the only one, and they solved it in the latest update.
I have a 13.x systems also but that is doing audio services so far, haven’t gotten around to install the tool on that system yet, I might have to do it next year for a tour. According to reports from others it works fine on 13.x (and now, 14.x) but haven’t personally installed it yet.
Perfect, no issues with Crop v1 (P.O.) but with Crop v4 (P.O.) the crop sliders operate differently from v1 which could be confusing to users. It would be better if both versions used the default value of 0 for Top, Right, Bottom, Left. Also I’m not sure if VIDVOX has a coding convention for addressing sides, following the CSS Top, Right, Bottom, Left clockwise order would be logical. Thanks for making the FX.
please help me with my problem.
After turning on VDMX, it unexpectedly shuts down after a few minutes. The project is a test, and I have only one media bin and one layer with three FX: glitch shifter, some feedback, and that’s all. Please help, as I have a performance in December, and I need to resolve this. Thank you."
Hi all, some Sonoma experience: I got a new Macbook Pro M3 just now, and that came with Sonoma so I’m forced up, its currently running macOS 14.1.1.
I haven’t had the time to stresstest VDMX extensively, but just from first impressions, seemingly it opens and runs my projects fine. I haven’t done any development or production work, just opening a bunch of various projects with different routings, layers, effects, all seems to open fine. I won’t be working with this system and VDMX production properly until January, might have more to report then.
Only thing puzzling is that VDMX takes almost a minute to start when launching? With seemingly nothing happening for the first 30 seconds, the icon just bouncing. Compared to pretty much every single other heavy media application that opens rapidly in just a few seconds (Vuo, Photoshop, Final Cut, Logic, Ableton etc), this is veeeery peculiar. But I think I’ve reported this before.
