    Is Avid Media Composer 8.5.3 compatible with Mac OS X Sierra Yet

    Hi,

    Is Avid Media Composer 8.5.3 compatible with Mac OS X Sierra yet? I know it is compatible with AMC 8.6 upwards.

    Thanks

    Tatjana

    Hi Tatjana,

       MC 8.5.3 is compatible up to OS X El Capitan 10.11.4. Check out the MC 8 documentation.

     

     

    Thanks,

    Yes sorry, 8.5.3 will never be qualified for Sierra. That's not how the qualification process works. 8.5.3 was created and tested in pre-Sierra environments. For the 8.5.x series of Media Composer to be qualified for any OS newer than it was tested, Avid would create a higher 8.5.x version, and then you would have to update to it. 

    Currently 8.5.3 is the latest in the 8.5 series and it is only qualified specifically for 10.11.4, no higher, no lower. 

    Is there a reason you need to stay at the 8.5.x series?

    Check out these resources, which may help you understand the different versions and their qualifications:

    Sierra: http://www.alwaysediting.com/avid-sierra.html

    El Capitan: http://www.alwaysediting.com/avid-el-capitan.html

    Yosemite: http://www.alwaysediting.com/avid-yosemite.html
