    Media First to MC

    Hello all, 

     

    I'm running MC 2019.6 on custom build: Intel i7 8700 8th Gen. w/ 16GB RAM, Win 10 Pro, Nvidia Quadro P2000

    I upgraded from MC First and am now using MC. I am not having any technical isssues, it just seems that AVID won't allow me to work on my older projects from MC First in MC. 


    I had this issue in PT, but was able to find a work around. That process has not worked for me in MC. In PT, I could at least still keep PT First, but when I updated MC First to MC, it auto uninstalled MC First and it doesn't seem like I can co-install both like I could with PT. 

    It just says MC can't open MC First projects and gives me the finger, which seems counter intuitive to having a entry level piece of software, if you can't use projects after you pay to upgrade and you can't co-install. 

    Thanks

    That's by design. Sorry I don't have a better answer.

    Thanks for the reply. 

     

    I assumed that was by design, but that post is almost two years old. You'de think enough time has passed for that "later date" to have come by now. 

     

    I really love AVID so far, but things like this make me seriously consider just using Premier.

    You should tell them that. You can use the Feature Request forum:
