    Avid Media Composer 6 student upgrade

    I currently have the student version of media composer 5.5.3. Does anybody know how I can obtain my (free) upgrade to MC6? will they ship me new disks, or will i just download and use my same serial #?

    - and given the probable load on the system, it might be smart to wait a few days after that!

    The academic free upgrade website is experiencing problems and is currently being worked on, according to Marianna, but no definite date/time has been stated. Please continue to monitor the link for when it changes. Sorry for the delay, and thank you for your patience.

    I hope I didn't really mess up. Following a link that Marianna sent me to this site I just began completeing the fields that were there... thought that was here instructions.

    In doing so it generated a SOFTWARE LICENSE for MC Academic 5.5 that is DIFFERENT than the SERIAL # associated with our original boxed STUDENT version 5.5.1 that had already been registered!

    Is this a comedy of errors? I should NOT have done that right? The site is not ready.

    Ugggh!

    Don't worry Jim. Marianna will get it sorted out for you. Please just give her a bit of time. She's really swamped with emails right now but contact her if you have download problems once the academic site goes live.

    Thanks Larry.

     

    I'll be patient. I know she's like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs right about now.

    I had some issues deactivating MC5.5 and activating MC 6 with my student upgrade. I messaged Marianna and she fixed it within the hour! Thanks Marianna!!
