    Media Composer 2019.7 available now...

    Great News!  The new Media Composer 2019.7 release along with Media Composer | First 2019.7 is now available.

     Status of Support Plan:  The ability to launch this Media Composer 2019.7 software is dependent on the status of your Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released.

    Baselight has a bunch of new licenses so I would reach out to them and see if they are having any issues with 2019.7.

    Already done.

     

    I can't find 2019.6 on the download page, and don't still have 2019.6 on my computer. Where can I get it so I can roll back to a version that works with Basselight?

    Hi Marianna, sorry to post in the PC side of the forum, and if this has been, or is due to be posted, my apologises, but was wondering if MC updates can be posted to the MC Mac forum. Of late I have started to notice that new MC release/patches info/links etc (as per this post) have been lacking on the MC Mac forum. I reguarly look through both the MC PC and Mac forum, so able to read the release notes etc., but would be great if the posts could also been seen within the Mac forum.

    They should be posted to both.... looks like a few Mac moderators are snoozing on the job so I need to get them back in line :)

    I will address it and thanks for letting me know.

    2019.7 is a full install. Normally I just run the installer and let it do whatever it wants to do with the previous installation. Strangely, 2019.7 told me I'd need to uninstall the previous version of MC using Windows Add/Remove Programs. I did, and 2019.7 installed fine afterward.

    To be extra safe, I renamed Avid Users, Avid Projects, and Avid MediaFiles to keep them from being removed during the installation. I don't think this was necessary, but I didn't feel like having to restore anything from a backup version.
