  • Re: Looking for some licensing advice

    okay fair enough. This software that I am looking at keeping current is my own personal copy which gets used a handfull of times a year. I do use Media composer every single working day at my day job, but I think it is version 6 and obviously does not have support. So, other than not being able to use my symphony option with the $199 / year subscription

  • Re: Looking for some licensing advice

    I own my perpetual software now and I have to pay $299 to keep it current. If I don't pay the $299 now, I still own it, but can have access to updates on another "rented" license for $199 in the future. Not sure the support package is worth anything to me, I have had Media Composer for 10-15 years and have never needed support. Thank you

  • Re: Looking for some licensing advice

    So, it seems like there is a $100 dongle "tax" . I also have a Perpetual license on a dongle with the symphony option. What would I actually lose if I let it lapse and then get the $199 deal sometime down the road. I'm trying to justify keeping my dongle current. Why pay $299 now when I may be able to use the version I have for some time

  • Will Renaming my computer affect my license

    The company I work for wants to rename my Mac workstation. We are currently runing a perpetual 8.4.5 non-dongle version. Will renaming the computer cause the software to not work? Thanks in advance!

  • 708 Closed Captioning workflow?

    Just upgraded to 8.9 from 5.5. This means I am leaving my faithful mojo behind. I have one broadcaster that requires me to send a beta because I haven't been able to close caption my hd files which is why I have kept my old software and Mojo so long. However, I was hoping that by moving to 8.9 I would be able to somehow create an mpg file that has

  • Re: Advice please SD or HD ?

    One of my clients uses HDV for his show and I convert to 1920 by 1080i in Avid. I output to Sorenson for the broadcast mpeg files, but also export back to HDV to my Sony camera. I then import back in as DV for the close captioning file with the Sony camera doing the HDV to DV conversion. I make the DV and SD beta files that way. I get the best results

  • Re: Do we have an ETA for a patch to fix HDV in MC 8.1?

    Seriously?! HDV has been my bread and butter for years and works great on 5.5. I don't transcode, just mix down to "real" HD after I am finished editing. So, Avid wants me to pay them for software that won't do what I need it to do? Another reason the new pricing policy is good for them and not for us. It better be fixed by the end

  • Re: New licensing rules

    Talked my boss into buying MC6 as it runs but is not supported on the old Mac that we have. Now, there is no reason to pay the $299 / year as we don't have a computer that will run anything newer. Also, this policy leaves a bad taste in his mouth about going to Avid. So it is unlikely that Avid will get any more money from our company even after
