Linux installs on Mac for Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate?

Hi, Thanks for any time and help on this.

 

Using X11 and Fink (http://ashu-geek.blogspot.com/2011/11/how-to-install-linux-applications-in.html ), it appears to be possible to install Linux programs on a Mac.

 

Purchasing the Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate seems to include the install and use of Maya, 3ds Max, Softimage, Mudbox, SketchBook Designer, etc. 

 

On the Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate Subscription, when downloading from the Subscription Downloads, for the 'Platform'  "Mac 64," the only programs for download are;

 

   Autodesk SketchBook Designer English, French, German, Japanese 2013 Mac 64 

   Autodesk Maya English, Japanese, Simplified Chinese 2013 Mac 64
   Autodesk Mudbox English, French, German, Japanese 2013 Mac 64

 

Are those the only installs available for the Mac with the purchase of the Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate, or are the Linux 64 programs also intended for install and use on the Mac?

 

Additional Linux programs listed;

 

   Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite Ultimate English 2013 Linux 64

   Autodesk Softimage English 2013 Linux 64

   Autodesk Maya Entertainment Creation Suite Standard English 2013 Linux 64

 

Thank you again, any help on this is sincerely appreciated :smileyhappy: .

 

All my best, 

 

Josh Purple

-a small somewhat greyed-out tab ).

Dear Josh Purple, 

Thank you for contacting Autodesk. The Linux downloads are not intended for Mac operating systems. Unfortunately, we do not have an Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite or Autodesk Softimage available in a Mac version. 

 

The Autodesk Entertainment Creation Suite has products that are Mac compatible, however not all products within the suite are Mac compatible. But, all products are Windows compatible. Only the following products within the suite are Mac compatible:

 

Maya® 2013

Mudbox® 2013

SketchBook® Designer 2013
