    What version of Avid works with Big Sur?

    I recently downloaded Avid 2020.12.0 for the free trial.. it installs but when it tries to open i get hit with 'Bob is unavailable' error message. I've read that this version isn't compatible with the new Big Sur OS.. it's a new laptop so can't revert to an old OS.

    What version of Avid would work for me and where can i download the softare from?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi gb199,

      Someone posted the same error recently, are you running mac M1 machine? If so this is not supported.

    Hi RalphC,

     

    When will mac M1 machines be supported?

    I work at USC's School of Cinematic Arts' Creative Tech Department and we're getting this question from our students who recently bought new laptops.

     

    Best,

     

    Rommel.

    Hi,

    so Media Composer is not running on Big Sur in any capacity as for now (trial version etc)? Is there a way to pause trial once initiated so that I can restart it once qualified on Big Sur?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Marcus,

      The latest MC released on Dec 21, 2020 is qualified on Big Sur, no you cannot pause the trial version. I can help with the license if you need to test on Big Sur send me an email.

     

     

     

    Thanks,

    As stated yes MC 2020.12 does run on Big Sur. Its the new M1 ARM chips that aren't supported yet. This isn't an OS issue its a hardware issue.
