On OSX, I downloaded, unpacked and copied LDView from LDview_4.2.1_Universal.dmg. It seems to automatically detect my ldraw path and I am able to open an LDraw model launching the gui from (finder) context menu.

However, for command line invocation I get this response:

Trevors-Mac:~ trevorsandy$ /Applications/ -ca0.01 -cg23,-45,3993775 -LDrawDir=/Users/trevorsandy/Library/LDraw -SaveAlpha=1 -AutoCrop=1 -ShowHighlightLines=1 -ConditionalHighlights=1 -SaveZoomToFit=0 -SubduedLighting=1 -UseSpecular=0 -LightVector=0,1,1 -SaveActualSize=0 -SnapshotSuffix=.png -SaveWidth=1240 -SaveHeight=1753 -SaveSnapShot=/Users/trevorsandy/Downloads/models/6964-01/LPub3D/parts/3794a_378_1240_150_DPCM_1_23_-45.png /Users/trevorsandy/Downloads/models/6964-01/LPub3D/tmp/pli.ldr

Just to make sure there's no misunderstanding, are you doing that from a Terminal Window on a Mac that you're logged into? The error message implies that you might not be local. However, presumably anyone using LPub on their Mac would be a local logged in user and not a remote user.

I just tested the following simplest-possible command line on my Mac:

/Applications/ -SaveSnapshots=1 car.dat

It correctly generated a car.png file in the current directory (which was the LDraw models directory). I'm using LDView 4.2.1.
