upgrading media composer 6 to 6.5.4
on Aug 7, 2015 at 9:31:56 am

Hi, been working on media composer 3 forever but even forever has to end..
I'm considering buying on ebay a brand new Media composer 6 (for 600$), but actually I'm interested in version 6.5.4. (everybody tells me its one of the most stable versions around)
Will I be able to upgrade 6 to 6.5.4?
Thanks!

No. 6.0 to 6.5 was a paid upgrade. You can upgrade 6.0 to the highest version of that...but to get 6.5.4, you need to buy 6.5

Shane,
Can I ask you one more question?
If I do buy that media composer 6, and I want to pay for the 6.5.4 upgrade - do you know if it's even possible these days, with the new Avid licensing policy, and the newer versions?

I know with a dongle, you can run most earlier versions of Avid..i believe back to 6.5...perhaps earlier.

There was a posting back when all this new subscription stuff started from Avid (i think Marianne) saying that you can do that with a software licence as well, so you might just want to buy 8.4 and run 6.5.

Call avid to double check.
