When you select enable render raw from the raw cache preferences, PM wants you to select where the Adobe Raw DNG convertor is, rather than using the built-in Apple Raw Convertor (which is pretty good).  The work around it just to shoot jpegs with the raws, I suppose, but it'd be even better the have a fully native version of PM for today's Macs.

The built-in renderer refers to our own RAW renderer that was never completed.  Most RAW files have good previews in them so no need to shoot JPEGs.  I do not recommend turning on the rendering via the DNG Converter since its performance is very poor.
