System Specs for Motive 3.0?

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.
