    Funny (?) competitive pricing

    Hi Avid,

    did I understand it correctly?

    I have a Media Composer Standard Support Perpetual License, which cost me 321 €/year the last years and know you want me to pay 428 €/year for the same license???

    Sorry, but this sounds like a joke to me, especially when I look around and see editing software like Da Vinci Resolve which is FOR FREE or Adobe Premiere Pro for 227€ / year...

    I was a great AVID fan for over 15 years and still defending it it front of peoples saying it was oldschool and not modern, but if this pricing politics is really what you now expected, than you will probarly lost one more customer.

    That's a pity.

    Jack

    Jack,

    Yes this summer we increased the price a 100 US.  The software/support plan - has not increased in over 5 years and the cost to develop has increased.  Since MC 8.x we have added TONS of ne features including a new interface and overhaul in 2019.x

    this document lists those adds

    Jack,

    I too feel that the pricing structure is a little unfair.

    Those of us who have perpetual licences seem to be penalised for investing in MC over many years.

    (In my case 29 years...)

    I have two perpetuals with Symphony and I have stopped updating one so it is stuck on 8.9.

    Meanwhile to update you can obtain a better deal here currently:
