As a newbe to Astro Pixel Pro I installed Mac version 1.083.2 and everything was woking fine. Spent the day yesterday working through various tutorials to get up to speed. However last night my Mac updated to Mac OS Ventura 13.0, and now Astro Pixel Pro won't load. Has anyone else had this issue and is there a workaround please? Any thoughts.

make sure you use the 2.0 beta. I am using APP beta on an M1 MacBook Pro and it is screamingly fast running native on the M1 chip!

Might be something going on if you have the console window in a separate window + using stage manager. That seems to clash somehow.

@agbell005 Hi Tony,

As Ecki writes, use APP 2.0.0-beta6 please. The download link can be found at the top of any forum page. For me it runs fine on macOS Ventura, even with Stage Manager enabled.

I have the same problem, it does work with macOs ventura, but I followed as written here the admin, I installed the 2.0 beta6 for macOs arm64 M1 and now it works perfectly, much better graphically than the previous version !! Thanks for the update.

Hi all,

We think that we might have a fixed Astro Pixel Processor version for macOS Ventura. Can you all try the following 2.0.0-beta7test version and let us know if this solves it and works properly?

new M1/M2/arm hardware:

Looking forward to your feedback!
