    Legacy components post Catalina

    Hi,

    I was downloading the new MC2021.2 when the Mac only info caught my eye,

    To install the 32bit features like the classic Title Tool or Marquee on non Catalina (or newer) machines, please download the Media Composer Legacy Components 2020.4 below.

    What does "(or newer)", refer to? Do the legacy components bring back classic Title Tool on Big Sur? Or is it future insurance, I don't get it?

    Catalina is MacOS 10.14. Newer than that would be Big Sur, Mac OS 10.15. Neither Catalina nor Big Sur nor any MacOS in the future will be able to run 32bit apps/components.

    So Media Composer Legacy Components will only work on Mojave (10.13).

    So: no, it won't help you get classic Title Tool on Catalina nor Big Sur. It will never happen. You can still run classic Title Tool if you run Mojave and install the Legacy Components.

    Thanks, thought that would be the case. I guess I was just confused with or newer in brackets which with the negative non before Catalina suggesting that it was saying the opposite.

    Of course these 32 bit apps won't be supported going forward.
