Mountain Lion



  • I may have missed a post, but has anyone had experience with running Izzy under Mountain Lion?  I saw enough problems posted with Lion that I never made the leap - wondering if its too soon to go ML.  Thanks.

    I am waiting for my free download code that apple should send me. I will then try as soon as possible.

    Best,

    There are a lots of problems surrounding USB with mountain Lion.... USB 2 and 3. But that's all I've heard so far.



  • Well, the big thing for me is that I need to "certify" Isadora so that MacOSX won't label it as some possibly nasty application. I will be doing this as soon as possible.

  • I have Izzy running six different permanent installations about 16 hrs/day... now all into their first full week using 10.8.  No changes.



  • Kdobe,

    Did you get the warning about it not being certified?

  • i installed 10.8 this evening and launched a very large Izzy patch with no apparent problems. Did not get any warning about app certification.  Will continue exercising various functions.

  • Hmmm... yeah, I just installed 10.8 myself -- and no weird notifications about the app certification thing either. Strange! I thought that this certification process was required.

    Did anyone do a completely fresh install? Or was everybody upgrading from a previous version? I wonder if it changes the security setting if you perform an upgrade. (Given that, from a previous system you might have numerous "uncertified" apps, I could see a certain sense in that.)
    Anyway... glad to hear the positive reports. I hope that continues!

  • It may have to do with the Gatekeeper setting in 10.8.



  • Dear Eric,

    Yeah, but I had gatekeeper set to alert me about "non certified" apps. (I didn't go to the "Only App Store" setting because that didn't seem to be the default.)
    Anyway... as long as she's running OK for people, that's the main point.

  • Hoping to start testing w/ 10.8 tomorrow and will absolutely push it to the limit. Will keep y'all posted!



  • Happy to report stable running conditions on a MacBook Pro 2.8ghz Intel Core 2 Duo for 1.30of24 rendering video to three projectors through a Triple-Head-2-Go, live video feed coming in through ADVC-55 with Processing running in the background pulling tweets, folder actions auto-importing, and on a network screen sharing a second computer. Early adopter success!



  • The only issue that was different for me from 10.7 was the fact that if the system setup did not have the QC's in the Composition folder, it would not find them in the other locations as 10.7 and prior OS's did.  After simply moving them to the composition folder, there was no difference in stability issues to prior OS's.



  • Well, I want to change the behavior of Isadora for the next version so that it only looks in the Apple agreed upon folders for .qtz files -- I think it's confusing to have it finding them in the FreeFrame folder, etc. I think using the standard folders will be clearer for everyone.

  • No problems here on a MBPr 2.6 !


  • Tech Staff

    I like that idea Mark. Makes much more sense.



  • I've deleted a post here with a very stupid question about how to install Isadora on 10.8.1 only to find out a minute after I posted it that all I needed to do was change my security preferences. Sorry. Had a short night.

    I am thinking of upgrading to 10.8 in a few weeks. Going to wait until after a show though!

    Any issues with Isadora and 10.8 now then? Anyone had/having any major issues? And what are your general thoughts about it?
    Thanks! :-)


  • I am very interested what benefits there are using 10.8 over 10.6 for video works?



  • None! (As far as I can tell).  There are, however, many drawbacks, chief among them are the random and frequent SBBODs I get all the time after the upgrade.  Been having all sorts of problems with Chrome, Quartz Composer, etc; Izzy (v22) is hanging and stalling in places it didnt before.  Things usually clear themselves up, but I've also had instances (e.g. last night) where I was working in Izzy and the entire machine froze - no response to keyboard, nothing.  Had to do a hard power down.

    I'm really not sure what the root causes are, and its been too random (and I've been too busy) to search the apple support forums or start submitting bug reports.  I;m hoping for a fixpack soon.
