Support for macOS Catalina and Beyond

Due to circumstances beyond our control we have been forced to suspend CameraRC Deluxe support for macOS versions 10.15 (Catalina) and later. We will continue to provide updates for versions of macOS prior to Catalina. The issue we have encountered is that Apple now requires all applications on macOS Catalina to be 64-bit applications and the company that provides the tools we use to build CameraRC Deluxe currently only provides 32-bit support for macOS. We are exploring options to resolve the issue as we wait to see if or when our tool vendor will provide us with a 64-bit solution.

If you plan to upgrade to Catalina and still want to use CameraRC deluxe then it will be necessary to have an older version of macOS available. There are two possible ways in which you can set up your Mac to have an older version of macOS available. The first is to dual boot your Mac; this enables booting either Catalina or an older version of macOS. The second method is to use virtualization run an older version of macOS from within Catalina.

  • If you have some spare disk space on your Mac then dual booting is a good solution that we use here at CameraRC to test our software on multiple versions of macOS. You can find a good How To in this Macworld article. The best part about this solution is that it is FREE.
  • The best virtualization solution is probably Parallels Desktop. You can find a how to on the Parallels web site. The downside to Parallels is that it is not free and costs about $80 USD.
  • A free virtualization option is VirtualBox – see this how to article for more information on using this option. This solution is more complex to implement but it is FREE.
