I have been a Final Cut user for the past few years but have now decided to make the change to Avid. I have a Macbook (v.10.6.8), can Avid work on Macs? I heard they were mainly used for PCs?

Will the new Avid MC 6.5 work on my version of Mac? On Wikipedia it seems to state that Avid MC 6.5 only works for Mac OS X v.10.7 and 10.8

Also, what is the difference between Avid Symphony and Avid MC?

MC 6/6.5, is not supported with snow leopard but it works. Never got to deep but everyhting seems ok in SL. Not sure who told you MC works better on PC’s. Im my experience going back and forth from a PC at work, to a MAC at home, theres no difference other than at one im on nitris hardware and another is thrid party hardware. Everything else works identically the same.

Thanks for the reply

So I won't have any problems running it on my Mac? What is SL?

Also, do you know which is best for video editing? MC or AS? what is the difference?
