Buzz X for os x was gutted--it is not an upgrade, but a huge backward step from buzz2. The filters are very limited and the results are not even close to what I can do with the earlier version--a great dissapointment. The folks at Fo2pix blamed poor support from apple and programming that was too difficult for a small company. The new artmaster sofware will be available for OSX when the next version of is released soon but it will be very expensive and I have read very negativ e comments about the interface. I have built a small business based on the buzz software rely heavily upon it. If the new OSX software is a crappy as the current BuzzX--i need analternative.. Either continue using Buzz2 on my Mac in OS9, or A pc using Buzz3, or buzz3 on a mac using Virtual PC.. Apple is soon to discontinue support for OS9. so something will be need in the future.
