    HI Ondrej Trhan CR & dougcjohn, can you tell me how to run RC on the virtual machine. I couldn't get it to work on my M1 Max and Paralles 17. It asked me to add Cuda 11 but it didn't work? If it is possible to have a tutorial. Thank you in advance . PS CR if you can release a mac version that would be fine😁

    Hello, I was wrong… It does run in lower preview but I received the same Cuda & DirectX errors you mentioned in Normal. 

    I was confusing my MBP Intel i7 & Win 11 VM, that does support. The Win11 ARM VM on MacBook Pro Max M1 does not.

    Parallels 17 on M1 with ARM Win11 needs to add support for both DirectX & 3D graphics.

    Do you have NVIDIA card on your Macs?

    If you are using MacBook or other compatible Mac OS device you can install RealityCapture with Boot Camp.  
    Boot Camp is a utility that comes with your Mac and lets you switch between macOS and Windows. Download your copy of Windows 10, then let Boot Camp Assistant walk you through the installation steps. You can read more about Boot Camp here:
    Then just boot into Windows 10 using Boot Camp, download RealityCapture from our website and install it on the Windows partition.

    We have heard a rumour that it can run using parallels. We have not tested this internally so I would not believe it unless you see it with your own eyes. It might be worth reaching out to the online photogrammetry community to see if anyone has actually tried it. If this did work, it would most likely be very unstable.
