New Hype-user here involved in developing multimedia-content for eLearning purposes. Been using Flash for ages, then Adobe Edge and then suddenly I was out of software (Like so many others)…but then I found Hype!
The company I work for is a PC-only environment, which isn’t going to change. So I had to sweet-talk my boss into letting me buy Hype to use on an old 13" MacBook Pro we used for testing-purposes. Now, a few weeks down the road, I see Hype as a the best option for our developing of interactive animations for browsers…at least without hiring a (real) programmer for every media-guy already employed.
At the moment we don’t have the budget to suddenly start buying Macbook Pros, especially as we’ve already got powerful PC’s running all our other software, so I’m trying to figure out the most economic solution to present my boss, so we can get at least 2 developers up and running on Hype-dedicated Macs.
My questions are:
- Are Mac Mini’s a viable option to use for developing HYPE content?
- If they are, how about the future? Will the Mini’s be able to run HYPE for at least some years down the line?
- How likely would I be to experience a MacOS release, that I wouldn’t be able to install to a Mini for “compatibility-reasons”?
- Does HYPE have a habit of ditching older MacOS releases, and then only being able to run a “newer” releases?
Hope these questions make sense…it has been many years since I worked with Macs
