Will Avid Media Composer 6 work on OS X Lion 10.7.3?
on Apr 23, 2012 at 1:10:10 am

I currently have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and was going to upgrade to Lion 10.7.3, but I want to make sure that Avid Media Composer 6 Academic will work on this OS before I do so.

My Mac specs:
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 3.06 GHz
Memory: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M

I also read that "Core 2 Duo based systems do not support HD baseband capture. You may experience limited HD playback performance," on an Avid requirements page. What does this mean? Will I be able to edit with HD footage?

Thanks!

Nope...it is not officially approved by AVID yet. Although some have had luck. Personally I would wait, They will make an announcement on their forum when it is official.

Hmm, ok thanks. My issue also is that I only have 1 month left to buy AVID at the student price. Should I maybe buy an earlier version 5.5.3? Or would that have the same issues....

It will work on 10.7.1. But then, they aren't selling that version are they? I bought Lion when it was 10.7.1.

I was running MC 6 on 10.7.3 from the get go.
I didnt check if it wasnt compliant.
No problems here.

I've been on 10.73 for quite a while as well. Few AMA crashes...not sure if that is because its AMA or 10.73, but other than that i'm quite happy.

FYI, MC 6.0.1.1 and Lion 10.7.3 are working just fine for me now. I was happy to upgrade Lion finally, I was having some issues(unrelated to MC) with 10.7.2 that are now resolved.

Ok, So I downloaded Avid 6.0.1 and it keeps shutting down on me. I'm trying to download the patch, but the instructions read..." Mac patches are full installers. You must uninstall your previous version first." Does this mean I need to uninstall my Avid and then download the patch and reinstall? I won't have to pay again right?

You won't have to pay again. Downloads are always free. The "Payment" doesn't occur until you launch the installed program for the first time and it asks you for your serial number and SID number. Those items you will receive from Avid when you pay for the software in the first place. Keep that information, as you'll need it if you want to transfer licenses to different computers.

Yes for Mac Avid, you have to run the uninstaller program in your applications folder, remove everything, then run the new version you just downloaded. Make sure you un-register your software from within the program before you uninstall it. (You already have a registered version running on your box correct?)

How do I unregister my avid? The program always quits before it fully can start up.

I was successful in having Avid 6 work on the OS X Lion operating system. However, I did have to change the read/write settings on my mac (ones that lion automatically sets), in order for Avid to open properly.
