    Re: Media Composer | First 2018.12.7 Available 8.8.19

    Thanks for the link.  However, I dont seem to need to reinstall the old version.  i found an avid folder in my  Applications folder, found the Media Composer file, double clicked and a window opened up, asking me if I wanted to run it as MC First,(plus a couple of other options which looked like they were for MC users).  

    Then i was  asked to log in to Avid Link, which was new to me so took me a while to figure out how to open it, and then how to log in.  But it now  all seems to be working, even on this i5 machine...
