With Motive 3.0 just around the corner, is there any insight on the recommended computer specs? We're in the process of upgrading.

Hello RaveTZ,

We generally recommend a 3.0+ GHz i7 processor and 8 GB of memory. Motive 3.0 should continue to run well with these specs.
If you can spring for a better processor, an i9 can also go a long way when capturing many subjects on a larger system.

In addition, we usually require a dedicated graphics card that is capable of running OpenGL 3.2+. A built-in graphics card can be hit or miss as to whether or not it fully support Motive and allows it to run. It does not need to be a high-end card; we often run with a $100 NVIDIA, and it is possible their less expensive cards would also support Motive.
