I understand. I really hope Luxcore will get more developer attention and funding. I would definitely start funding Luxcore if that would enable someone to spend more time on macOS development.

I'm glad to see that U3Dreal in the Luxcore Discord (the 'Luxcord' ;) ) is already supporting ARM Macs. That's an important step.
So far the problem is that i do not own an M1 mac. I think it would be relatively easy to compile Luxcore if i had an M1 in front of me.

Maybe a friend of mine will buy one ...

My plan is to update the build azure pipeline to 2.6 libs and then try again with an arm64 build.

Concerning Metal i have been looking into that for a while. I'm even learning c++ and had a good look at the examples given from apple.
It will be a big effort for me. Of course if there would be support i would have more time and motivation.
For now i have to focus time on other things to earn money.
Feel free to contact me if you have any idea.

Actually, i have an Apple macbook M1 but I do not have enough experience with Metal API.
If there is a way to help I will be glad to try.
