    MC First / MC Co-Install

    Hi all!

    I'm interested in testing Media Composer | First. 

    Can I co-install MC First with the full version of MC in the same machine?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi agusting,

     Not at this time, Media Composer | First and Media Composer cannot be installed on the same systems.

    Thanks,

    agusting.....

    One thing to remember is that Media Composer | First is derived from Media Composer.  Thats why they work with each other so when a MC | First user decides to move on up to MC, they can.

    Say you have MC 8.8.3 on your computer and you install 8.8.4.  It wont work.  You need to unistall 8.8.3 first then move up to 8.8.4.  Same thing....

    Great! Thanks for clarifying. It's good to know that projects from MCF can be moved to MC. This could be a game changer.

    All the best.

    Not yet they can't. Its planned as a future addition.

    So currently the only thing you can move from First to MC is exported files.

    So I guess this means I can't use MC first to use in the field to ingest media on my laptop and then import the bins into a MC project when I get back to base

    As of the moment, You also cannot open bins from Media Composer | First in Media Composer; this functionality will be added at a later date.

     

     

    Thanks,
