    Re: Do we get Squeeze 8 with MC 6?


    I have the same question. Just bought Avid for the full price and the package with Squeeze8 made me think it was reasonable at the end. Avid advertisements also say Squeeze 8 is included, also my Avid dealer told me so. Then on the disc is Squeeze 7. Then a paper is included to explain I can download Squeeze 8 from the Avid download page and it will work. After all processes it gets clear that it is a cheap Lite version for amateurs.

    I can not appreciate this and hope that Avid will make a clear point to customers.


    Thank you

    Before this spins out of control, as Marianna posted, Sorenson was in Burlington for 2 days for meetings and we'll have a message shortly about how we will move forward. Working on that now.

    Re: Do we get Squeeze 8 with MC 6?

    Hey everyone.....


    First off, as Dave said - Product Management has been meeting with Sorenson the past few days and Squeeze was a big part of that.


    Second, we know closure on is a long time coming and I personally want to thank you all for your patience as the team worked to find a solution to the issue raised here on the forum.  Unfortunately, as I posted in response to  DFW, TVJohn and others last week ...  sometimes implementing change especially within large companies can take longer than we would like, but when all is said and done, I think you folks will be happy with the final result. 


    I believe Dave mentioned in a previous post that Avid and Sorenson have a long-standing partnership and have been working for the past year on extending and expanding that partnership. We've both agreed to many positive changes, like adding Sorenson Squeeze to Academic purchases and now including Sorenson Squeeze for Avid support customers both of which never had this before.  As you are all VERY aware :)  a new version of Sorenson Squeeze was introduced that was different from previous versions of Sorenson Squeeze, and while this new version had new functionality, it also limited some of the features.  Your posts, emails and calls showed the product teams that these features were very important and had become an instrumental part of your workflow. 

    Thanks to the passionate reactions J and tons of feedback you all provided, we are going to reinstate the full version of Sorenson Squeeze 8 that is feature compatible with the previous version of Sorenson Squeeze that was included with Media Composer 5.5.   So thi means you will receive some of the great new features of Sorenson Squeeze 8, like GPU accelerated encoding, adaptive bit rate encoding, NLE plugins, new format support and  more.  

    Sorenson also offers some great services like integrated Review & Approval functionality with Sorenson 360, the online video platform.  You can add that functionality to your workflow for $99 at or try it out for free at   

    Dave and his team are currently working through the issues with Sorenson and our Customer Success team and we need a few more days to work through the internal processes to be able to provide you with access to the full version of Sorenson Squeeze 8.  If you are really stuck with a workflow issue, you can contact me off list ( my email addy is below) and I can work to get you a code.  Naturally, I would prefer that you wait a few more days on this as we have a lot of logistics to workout.

    Also note that if you did already upgrade to the Sorenson Squeeze full version, we will have a process for you too. Not sure exactly how we will address that piece but we will. 

    Thanks again for your patience and commitment ..... stand by for more information on the next steps which I hope to have early next week.

    Clearly, an exemplary effort on behalf of the Avid Community. With actions such as these, Avid reinforces the belief that an Avid purchase extends beyond the purchase of software, you are buying into a complete support solution.
