Hmmmmm. The Application Manager doesn't like me! Tell's me to "go to the avid store" and buy the upgrade... but I already did that! How could I have gotten to 8.2 if I didn't buy the upgrade?

After scanning other boards, it appears that I'm not the only one encountering "friction" with this upgrade.

I downloaded from the Download Center and installed the old fashioned way. I'm on 10.9.5.

Must say im pretty impressed!



Multicam is back in working order.



Trimming is good with Blackmagic hardware (driver 9.9.3). Caps Lock/Scrub is tight and responsive.



I tried the 4K workflows out. My I7 Imac was playing back AMA'd 4kRED clips in proxy 1/16 with no problem.



Transcoded to DNxHR HQ and it played back no proxy Full Quality with no lag! Didnt think i'd ever get native (to avid) 4K playback on this thing at decent quality. Pretty impressed I have to say. The Proxy implementation is pretty effin slick. LUTs as FX on the timeline is sweet!

New Bin search/find/sorting thing is really cool.

App feels pretty snappy and responsive overall in compared to the last couple version. Background Service's running right, etc. I think Avid might have just come thru in the nick of time. Cant wait to try it on a computer with some juice!

I was running 8.2, now running 8.3. I did the update through the Application manager. But I did have to deactivate and reactivate after I installed.

Any of you folks running it with a Nitris DX?

And if you are, I take it your not using a nMP.

Pretty sure Avid has qualified the DX for use with a thunderbolt chasis.

Mark -

You would obtain your v8.3 activation ID from the MY Account aka Master Account. Once you login you can see your Media Composer | Software line item which will have your MC 8.3 activation and if on dongle licensing the dongle updater file. The 8.3 has the new logic that once installed will not behave that way any longer and will know what you have via Appman.

Log in to your master account.
Open My Products and Subscriptions
Open Media Composer | Software
Expand the screen by clicking on the V
you should see your activation or dongle updater there.

If you have a dongle based system - you will see BOTH and activation and a dongle updater as dongle based licenses are able to migrate to SW licensing based systems by chosing the convert option in Appman.

HTH and sorry for taking a while to get to you - there are way tooooooo many internet sites now with people asking questions and we can't be everywhere at once.
you can always email me

Or you could spend more time hanging around the site with the largest number of people. :-)

Mark,

I spoke to AVID tech yesterday. They said there is a glitch in Application Manager. I got the same message, no active license. I had to go to the web page, log in and download. No need to deactivate reactivate here.

Warren,

Thanks for the info.

Kinda defeats the purpose of an application manager, doesn't it!

I've seen conflicting info from Avid. Some folks are getting the App Mgr to update, but I have also been told this doesn't start working until 8.3 onward. Might be an OS version issue, as well.

When I installed (the old way) I had to de-activate/re-activate for the licensing to work correctly.

The update manager way of upgrading worked fine for me. There was an update to the app manager itself that i did before i tried to update the app itslef, maybe thats why you guys are having trouble. Once i updated the app manager, deactivated my license, clicked install, re activated and i was good to go.
