I’m on OSX but I’m not at all an early adopter when it comes to operating systems. I just upgraded to Lion in June and the next release, Mountain Lion is already here. So is it worth upgrading yet? The subject was brought up in our Facebook group and Mattias Lindberg (Fake Pilot) stated that he is running VDMX without problems so far but says that Vidvox has adviced against upgrading yet since there might be performance issues and plugins that won’t work. Since X11 is not supported in Mountain Lion, you will have to install XQuartz for VDMX and a few other apps to work. Mattias also states that all Vade’s V002 plugins works great.

Patrik Johansson (Nrlnd/Current Current) had a talk with Kineme and reports that Data Tools has been updated for Mountain Lion but Kineme core and Kineme 3D is not working yet.

My searches on the Internet reveals that there doesn’t seem to be any problems with Modul8, Resolume, CoGe and Arkaos. Let us know if you disagree.

    The short version;

    1. Do you recommend updating to Mountain Lion?

    NO.

    DO NOT UPDATE TO MOUNTAIN LION.

    At least not yet- we’ve noticed some significant performance slow-downs with CoreImage and Quartz Composer throughout 10.8 and until Apple addresses these issues any VDMX project that uses CI or QC for FX and composition won’t run as well as they would in Lion.
