Will run Unreal engine 4 development kit on Macbookair?
Hi i plannnin use Unreal engine4 engine on my macbook air. it has 4GB ram.
I do not want to do Heavy rendering or Mega project. It will be just for simple&small iOS game app. I'd read System requirement at payment page and It tells me need 8GB ram. Should I buy new mac system for develop iOS product? I had stopped at the subscription plan screen. geez.
someone help me please.
Our attempts to run UE4 on MacBook Air found that it ran but was extremely slow. We definitely wouldn't recommend it for use. Even with simple content on-screen, the Unreal Editor interface itself requires enough GPU performance to bring a MacBook Air to single-digit frame rates.
The most important system component for editor performance is the GPU. That's why we recommend a desktop computer with a good discrete GPU.

While I would not expect it to be officially supported, I am downloading it to test on my mid-2013 Macbook Air (it's all I have on me here at GDC). I will happily post an update here and tell you how well it seems to run. ^-^

BTW, it runs well on MacBook Pro with Nvidia graphics in them.
