Hey everyone. I'm really confused with trying to install Autodesk 3ds Max on my mac. It's supposedly compatible with this software, but no matter what year/version I choose, the only two options are either a Windows 32bit or Windows 64bit. If you could help me on how to get this option or what programs actually work on macs- It would help me a lot!
