Mac computers with Apple silicon M1 chip

Hi everyone,
A recent update to the Pix4Dreact software now supports macOS Big Sur. I’m curious to learn if the software will run on Apple’s new Mac silicon computers (Macbook Air and Macbook Pro 13" - M1 chip). The 64-bit Arm-based devices are emulating x86_64 instructions using Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulation layer. The Apple M1 is a 5nm 8-core System-on-Chip (SoC) with 16 billion transistors and an integrated 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU. It’s a power computer chip that should crunch image stitch/rendering operations.
Has anyone had success running Pix4Dreact on a new Mac computer with Apple silicon M1 chip? Curious to hear your success stories.
Kind Regards,

Hi @AirWrx,
We haven’t tested the Pix4Dreact with the new M1 Chip, as it has just been released. I would wait to see the experience of the user who had tried it.

Any update on the M1 version update ?

Hi, just want to know if there is any update on this.


We havent tested Pix4Dreact on this device yet. Maybe some of our users? If yes would be great if we can know what is the behavior of this.


I have a Mac Pro m1, can you share a temporary license to give it a try and test?

Hi @cristianmp3 ,
That is very nice of you. I see you have not used your Pix4Dreact trial yet. (I will leave this, so you can use it in the future). I gave you 15 days Pix4Dreact license to use it, test it and let us know your feedback with this new computer.

To start using your Pix4Dreact license, please download the software here, and use your Pix4D credentials. Your license will expire 2021-05-11.

Looking forward to your feedback :slight_smile:

Hello @Cranesndrones
