well they do support xml , which the skin engine is based

it depends how similar the interfaces are

options may have to be different

and skins might need to be redone

plugins will need to be compiled in a different way prehaps as im not sure to what extent a dll file can be read in mac os

the only ones who can give a definative answer on this one

are the dev team.

I'm no VDJ spokesperson, but I don't see any reason why the skins would be completely portable between the 2 versions. It should b the same program, same functions, etc. just running on a different platform.
The VDJ programmers aer professionals so I'm sure they will keep everything transparent to the user.

skins do work, effects and transitions need to be in a different format called a bundle, as .dll's don't work in mac.
