Run 3DS MAX 2008 on a Mac

The latest version of Parallels Desktop for Mac runs 3D Studio Max 2008 in OS X.5 (Leopard), seemingly without any problems (well no additional problems that the two products don’t have independently). It also works in Parallels “Coherence” mode, so you get a seamless experience, for example dragging and dropping files from the Finder into the 3DS Max interface.

The catch? DirectX rendering doesn’t seem to work, so you’ll have to use software rendering for the viewports.
