  • Hey folks,

    You can download 1.0.2 MacOS version where we returned Yosemite (OS X 10.10) support

    Thanks for patience,

  • I am also getting the same message although I've never run LensStudio before. Downloaded the current LensStudio as of rn. 

    Running 10.10.5

    Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB.

    2.7 GHz Intel Core i7

    16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

    I'll try on another system but if you have any ideas, feel free to share.
