Pro-Render for Blender on MAC OS

Hi, I have attached screenshots. Not having much luck using the Pro-Render 3.5 driver for Blender 3.0 on my intel mac. The render is way dark and doesn't include the nodes correctly, even in the viewport. I also don't seem to be able to activate my AMD card in cycles mode. Is there a way to activate the GPU in Cycles Render? It's greyed out and nothing shows up in the system in Blender 3.0 preferences to activate other than installing the AddOn Driver.. Screen Shot 2023-03-01 at 5.43.36 PM.pngScreen Shot 2023-03-01 at 5.42.56 PM.pngScreen Shot 2023-03-01 at 5.42.44 PM.png

AMD has a ProRender Forum so post this thread there and see if you get any responses:

According to this Apple website you can upgraded your IMAC to Ventura MacOS:

By upgrading your MacOS you will also automatically upgrade the native AMD driver for your GPU card and possibly make it more compatible with ProRender. Just guessing though.

NOTE: Misread the IMAC Compatibility chart. Ventura is the newest MacOS you can install.
