    Guys,
    I've heard some reports from users that the editor application is acting strangely with the new Mac OS Big Sur.
    I recommend that you don't update your Mac OS to Bg Sur until we get this straightened out.
    Cheers,
    Jace

    I read this concerns 2013,4 MacBookPros at the moment, certainly my old 2012 MBP seems to be ok

    Odd that Big Sur issues with the AA Editor would be an issue for some versions of the hardware and not others.

    Are there any first hand reports of issues to share on this?

    Bump. Can anyone confirm that the AA Editor still runs on Big Sur?

    the editor runs on both intel and M1 silicon macs with Big Sur, BUT: (for me) the editor crashes when trying to back it up (even after deleting and re-installing the editor on both intel and M1 machines).

    If you're a bit tech savvy ... and you have an Intel Mac, you could try running Windows inside of VirtualBox (or VMWare) ... and then try the Windows version of the AA Editor. You'd want the USB to be enabled on the VM. I tried this a while back (on a prior version of MacOS) and it worked.

    Good luck.

    thanks but that seems like a lot of trouble (and doesn't one need to have a licensed copy of Windows anyway)?

    Just a note- I sent an email to Amplifire tech support about this 11 days ago and have not yet even had a response. (uncool).

    I'm sorry about that.
    We're working on a fix for compatibility for Mac OS Big Sur.
    We'll post a new compatible version of the editor when it's ready.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.
