    To claim their upgrade, students should go to www.avid.com/us/support/upgrade-academic-free.

    Has the Q2 update dropped yet? I would have thought it would be available before July 1st, has it been delayed?

    I saw a post recently saying they're in testing, and 8.1 should be released "soon".  What "soon" means specifically I don't know.

    Re: Avid Media Composer | Software NOW AVAILABLE

    I am running 10.8.5 and I understand I need 10.9.2 for MC8 (which I intend on getting) however, when I try to update my OSX I can only get 10.9.4 as a download.

    So, here comes the question... where can I download/get 10.9.2 ? Help?

    Thanks.

    Re: Avid Media Composer | Software NOW AVAILABLE

    You'd have to get the 10.9.0 base installer, which is unfortunately a difficult task now - and then the 10.9.2 combo update.  Best bet in the future is to download the base installer as soon as it's released - which is easier now on the Mac as the OS upgrades have been free - and then download combo updates as needed.

    So, you can future-proof yourself, by downloading 10.9.4 NOW, then not installing it, keeping it on hand for the future for when Avid eventually qualifies it, even if Apple releases 10.9.5 by then.  IF you really want to to go Mavericks, that is.  Personally, it's working fine for me.

    Anyway, the version matrix says MC8 is OK for 10.8.5 - so you're already fine.

    Re: Avid Media Composer | Software NOW AVAILABLE

    Great advice.

    So I (newbie to os x) would just go tot he app store and download it. Basically, I have to click on it to install in finder or does it start installing as soon as the 5Gig file has been downloaded?

    Thanks for your wisdom

    Yes - if you download it, it does NOT install automatically.  You will have an installer for 10.9.4, for whenever you want to use it.

    Note that the new MC 8.1 is qualified for 10.9.4 - so if you're going to download Mavericks, now is a good time to do it - you're guaranteed to have an OS that's qualified for MC8.1 - no need to go to 10.9.2 and MC8.0 anymore.

    Re: Avid Media Composer | Software NOW AVAILABLE

    Hi AVID Moderators,

    I tried to claim the upgrade from MC 7.0.4. to MC 8.1 of my academic (teacher) version, but on the homepage it didn't work out, saying that my system ID is not connected to an academic system?

    Isn't it possible to claim the upgrade with a teacher academic version?

    And if not:

    Will there be updates for MC 7 to make it compatible with OSX Maverciks 10.9.4 (or newer versions of OSX)?

    I understand that Avid wants to change its business model, but there are still a lot of MC 7 users and long-time clients who also deserve updates, at least to make them compatible with newer OS versions...

    Re: Avid Media Composer | Software NOW AVAILABLE

    My understanding is that starting with MC v6.5, only students (but not teachers or institutions) qualify for the 4 year free upgrade program.

    This would normally be a Marianna question, but with her OOTO I suggest you contact Aidas for further assistance.

    Also note that there will always be an end point to how far back Avid confirms MC works with newer OS'es.  I think that's one reason they are switching to a subscription model, so it's easier for users to stay up-to-date.  But there will always be the other side, folks who need the latest features but can't update their OS for some reason.  So it's a fine line they walk.

    Nonetheless, I can say there is an update to MC v7 currently in beta testing.  I don't know the particulars about when it will be released or which OS'ed are supported, but we should hear something soon.

    Re: Avid Media Composer | Software NOW AVAILABLE

    Hi Kevin,

     

    Thank you for your reply!

    Ok, I understand, so possibly it is not possible with the teacher account. 

    I also understand that, at some point they have to stop the support. But I bought the MC 7.0 Version and was just surprised that the support stopped with 7.0.4.

    But it is good to hear that there is an update in beta-testing, thank you for the information.

     

    Have a great week!
