Good News! Now blender.org has started posting nightly builds of blender here: http://builder.blender.org/

Thanks a lot for posting your builds, much appreciated ! :)

Weird thing is that Cuda doesn't work here (it says "Failed loading render kernel"...), on Lion 10.7.2 (hackintosh with a GTX560) while TKROO's builds are working perfectly fine.
Other than that, it's cool to have new builds so often for Mac OS X, it makes a big change from the beginning of Graphicall when we were often left with "old" builds while other systems got a new one on a daily basis ! :D

Thanks Don, your the man! I hate to be a bother, but now many of the video render outputs are missing, such as H.264 (which i use daily).

@Bjornio, thanks for letting me know. I added compiler option to include ocean sim now.
@gun4hire, I have added an option for collada. I believe it's in now though I did not test it.
The build is getting uploaded right now. Once you revision changes to 41945. You can download. It'll be in a few minutes.

Applied an Ocean Sim modifier to a plane. Does nothing and brings up the modifier with the words inside it saying "Built without OceanSim modifier" so I guess it wasn't included? Thanks!

Instant Crash - Leopard 10.5.8 iMac 2.8 GHz DuoCore 2GB memory - am running cycles on a 2.59 version works OK

also, is there a reason this build is marked as experimental? It says trunk in the title of the build but the icons next to it indicate that it is experimental.

hey Don Quixote, thanks for the builds. Do you think you could build with the collada (.dae) import/exporter? It does not seem to be included

Hey there... Noob question here...

This is the second time I try a 'Blender + Cycles' build... Last time, there was a 'Rendered Mode' option that has disappeared in this version... Or at least I can find it anymore! :/ Any ideas?!

This is not a CPU vs GPU issue, because I don't own a CUDA compatible graphics card, and I can only run Cycles in CPU mode...

Here's a capture of where it used to be:

Hi All,

Same remark as for the 41769 : cycles seems not working with GPU (black rendered image), since it works well with CPU.

Do i miss something ? (my config : macpro 2011 lion 10.7.2, AMD radeon HD 6750m)

@eversimo, I am not sure how to compile blender using scons. I use cmake. I followed the blender wiki. It worked out without me reinventing the wheel. I found somebody's shell scripts for updating svn repository, compilation and creating dmg files. Modified them for my paths and they just work. The shell commands executed per one each blender branch are:
make -j4
make install
and after that I run a script to create dmg file from the blender.app

@wafa, I will try compiling onion. If it goes smooth I will upload.

I just want to ask if You could build onion branch osx blender. I heard that the sculpt tools are great.

What I need to do to build blender again?
I'm on a Mac Pro and I build Blender through scons for myself but... python version was changed to 3.2... then I updated python through mac port but when I try to build it I get this error in terminal:

Mac24:blender Mac24$ python scons/scons.py BF_BITNESS=64 -j12
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "scons/scons.py", line 66, in
if os.environ.has_key("SCONS_LIB_DIR"):
AttributeError: '_Environ' object has no attribute 'has_key'

Can you help me?

@tmcintosh, the 3DConnexion driver is not included in this build.
14:32 August 11th, 2011
Tried using this on 10.5.8 and could not get the SpaceNavigator to work. Are there any special things to do to turn the feature on? The new beta 10 driver from 3DConnexion is installed. I also tried the 2.58 build, and it did not work either, but the left button did launch the SpaceNavigator menu within Blender. Any thoughts? Thanks...
Feeling talkative?
