Does anyone else have issues with macOS and Nvidia drivers in terms of running Chief?

There are some issues on PC's with the the latest 388.xx Series drivers but I have seen no reports of issues on MAC.

 

On PC most find it helps going back to version 382.05 from May.

What kind of issues are you having?

When I updated to Sierra I was having a jumpy mouse. I had to turn certain settings off on Sierra and it has been working good since then.

As Nividia isn't supported by Apple....and the req's for Chief clearly do not address this... Please do explain what Nvidia card you have that is apple supported (non AMD) as personally on a new Mac Pro with an aftermarket Nvidia card (Apple only supports AMD atm) well the issues are definitely a problem.  Further its appalling that the software requirements to run this program do not address these issues...Apple doesn't sign drivers other than AMD, and the support is likely only going to degrade, for sure this should be a thing on the requirements to run this software....

I am not a MAC person but I thought Nvidia had supported Mac OS for years , (does Apple Support Nvidia I don't know,)  but Nvidia has drivers for download, they are harder to find though.....

there is also sites like tommymac and 9to5 Mac mentioning it

perhaps you should be calling Tech Support if possible and have them help if needed... as there are many here running CA on MACs with no issues...

 

it would help to if you filled in your Forum Signature with your System Specs so others can offer more help and advice .....see my signature for a quick how to do it....
