    MC Standard no longer usable with Nexis?

    Am I reading the FAQ right that I have to upgrade all of my licenses to Media Composer Ultimate to share projects with on existing Nexis Enterprise system?  This can't be right?  I have 20 seats and would now have to pay an additional $4000/year to keep them under support.  I don't need any new features but our projects must be shared.

    Is this right?

    thanks.

    What licenses do you currently have? Subscriptions (rentals) or Perpetual licenses (bought)? For the latter, nothing changes. For the former, there is now a cheaper option that does not support shared storage, in addition to the current option, that is now renamed Ultimate.

    I have perpetual licenses but am pretty sure I was paying $300/year to keep them up to date. Will keeping the Nexis Ultimate go up to the $500/year per license? That's what I thought I read. Thank you.

    The annual support renewal for perpetual licenses remains unchanged. Same functionality remains included. Nothing changes.

    The 200/500 offering concerns subscriptions (rentals).

    Re: MC Standard no longer usable with Nexis?

    Out of curiosity, what happens if a project is started in a non-ultimate MC system but then needs to move into a NEXIS environment?

    Can I just plug-in an ultimate dongle/license key and then run the project from NEXIS, or do I have to start the project in Ultimate from scratch?

    A real-world scenerio would be an offline editor working from home (standalone Media Composer license) who then needs to move to a facility for finishing (using NEXIS/Ultimate)

    Thanks in Advance!

    Media Composer Perpetual and Ultimate are the same software with the exception of NewCutter, PF, SS and Symphony are bundled with Ultimate where they are separate for Perpetual.

    Both versions will work with NEXIS.
