    Idea [I] *Crossgrading from a Perpetual License (Dongle / Software) to MC | Ultimate

    Something to consider "you dongle people out there"............

    If you are thinking of Crossgrading from a Perpetual License (Dongle or Software) to Media Composer | Ultimate..... note the following:

    1. Your perpetual license will stop working. Crossgrading a perpetual license means you are surrendering your perpetual license in exchange for a Media Composer | Ultimate subscription license. You will keep your existing System ID, but will receive a new software Activation ID that will activate your monthly, yearly, or multi-year subscription license.

    2. Dongle hardware will no longer work on a subscription. Since subscriptions are not supported on dongles, the dongle will be disabled and will no longer license your software. You will continue to use your existing System ID with the new software Activation ID to activate and run your subscription license.

    ** Note that a few dongle users got bit by this when selecting the renewal option in MyAvid so we are working on adding an info note to give an added level of notice. BTW those that got bit by this or didnt "know" - we fixed :) **
