Smoke Preview broken in 2.77 on some Mac systems.
Worked fine in previous release on same system under 2.76b (hash f337fea)
Description of error:
Smoke preview in viewport not showing up on some Mac systems. My test file is the simple default cube with smoke quick effect applied.
I am running a Hackintosh with Mac OSX 10.9.5 and the viewport is not showing the smoke preview in 2.77. The smoke preview works perfectly in 2.76b though.
Smoke preview also works in 2.77 on the same system when booted into Windows 8.
In system preferences for 2.77 I have tried setting the Compute Device to all three options (None, CUDA, OpenCL) and all available GPU selections. None of that made a difference as the smoke preview still failed to show in the viewport.
I did test 2.77 on two other Mac systems and smoke preview operated normally on those. One was a 2010 Mac Mini running Yosemite 10.10.5 and the other a 2008 Mac Pro running OSX 10.8.4.
