    Media Composer 2018.12.7 Avialable 8.8.19

    As part of Avid’s Long Term Maintenance Release commitment, Media Composer 2018.12.7 launched today, Thursday August 8. 2019.

    Location at Launch: The Updates to Media Composer 2018.12.7 ( Mac and Win ) is available from the Avid Download Center (login and password required) only. The Download Center is accessible via the MyAvid Master Account.

    Status of Support Plan The ability to launch this Media Composer 2018.12.7 software is dependent on the status of your Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released.  

    Important Note - (Windows) Installing the Editing Application.  Both a full installer and a patch installer are provided for Media Composer v2018.12.7 (Win).  To use the patch, you must have v2018.12.3 already installed. Then use the 2018.12.7 patch to update to v2018.12.7. 

    Changed in Media Composer 2018.12.7:  The following has changed with this release.

     -  Simplified InstallerA change has been made to the Installer to remove an install menu window. When you download Media Composer v2018.12.7, simply double-click Install Media Composer.exe to install Media Composer. 

    -  Open I/O NDI Plug-In - In previous releases, the Open NDI Plug-In was automatically installed when you installed Media Composer.  With this release, you have the option to install or not during the install process.  For details on this plug-in, see “Support for NewTek NDI Video over IP” in the Media Composer Help. 

    Fixes:  there are a lot of fixes in this release.   See attached ReadMe 

    Enjoy all of you on the old UI.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.12.7 Available 8.8.19

    If I unserstand this correctly "Both a full installer and a patch installer are provided for Media Composer v2018.12.7 (8-8-19) (Win)." So I can (A) uninstal 2018.10 and install 2018.12.8 from the full installer called 2018.12.7 (8-8-19)? Or do I (B) upgrade from 2018.10 (my current ver) to 2018.12.3 and then run the patch to 2018.12.7 (8-8-19).?

    Is any method better than the other? (I'm 2019.7 gunshy.)

    BTW: Version control is getting kinda wacky here. Why isn't this called 2018.12.8? 

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Yes and this is the way I would recommend.  

    The bug fixes shown in the readme suggest that this could be the best 2018.12. x version yet.

    I reverted from 2019.7 to this update on this W7 machine. Nice to get my speed back again.
