MacOS 13 Ventura - Warning

MacOS 13 Ventura - Warning

Mac users will be encouraged by Apple to upgrade to Ventura. However, compatibility is poor for most applications at this stage.

In particular, we recommend against upgrading to Ventura until you are sure your software is compatible.  

Software not currently compatible includes (but not limited to):
  • SketchUp Pro
  • Enscape

Vectorworks 2022 SP5 and 2023 SP1 are deemed compatible, though the recommendation is to not upgrade or install Ventura until issues are resolved.

Vectorworks 2023 SP1 – With the final release of macOS 13 Ventura, a long pause has been found the first time Renderworks or Redshift rendering is used on computers that qualify for Redshift GPU. These include M-series and Intel AMD 5600/5800 Macs. After this pause, rendering operates normally. The delay happens with each session. Vectorworks are working with Apple and Maxon to resolve this issue in a future Service Pack.
