Minimum System Requirements

Clarisse has a modern fully multi-threaded architecture and massively uses all the available system cores. The more cores your CPU(s) have the faster it gets. Clarisse doesn't rely on GPUs (even for the 3D View), and thus doesn't require a high-end graphics card.

We certify Clarisse on RHL/Centos 6.x x64 distributions. However, it has been reported Clarisse runs perfectly fine on other Linux distributions.


The Binaries (application files) and the Contents (projects, tutorials, manuals...) are available in your My Download Area Menu.
