    Avid Academic Version questions and plugins

    I have an Academic Version of Avid (I teach Digital Media and ICT).

    I read that MC 6 Academi version ships with Avidd DVD, Avid FX and Sorenson with the installer. I don't seem to have this. Is it because I purchased MC 5.5 and upgraded online to MC6? BTW - I'm on Mac Lion.

    Also, I went to get plugins to use AMA at http://www.avid.com/US/products/Avid-Media-Access/plug-ins

    It seems that the links are not working. I this the correct place?

    Thank you for your support.

    If you upgraded to MC6 you are entitled to AvidFX, AvidDVD and Sorenson Squeeze 8.

    Re: Avid Academic Version questions and plugins

    I downloaded Sorenson, but it says the serial # I have is not valid. I tried both the serial # for my academic upgrade, as well as the original that came with MC 5.5. Any suggestions?I am overlooking something, but can figure it out.

    Any suggestions appreciated! :)

    Hi,

    http://avid.force.com/pkb/LegacySearch?DocId=424031

    Scroll down to where it says:

    Note on Squeeze activation:

    When you install Squeeze the installer will prompt you for your serial number and registration information. You need to provide an email address in order for Sorenson to send you an Activation Key which you which you will enter at the next screen to complete the activation.

    and there's a link below that which says "Media Composer Academic Students".  Click there and you'll get bounced to the bottom of the page, where it says:

    ·         Students with Media Composer Academic purchased after March 2009

    These customers can request their 3rd party serial numbers by emailing videoreghelp@avid.com with 

    "Production Suite License Request" in the subject and providing their Name, Email, Phone Number, and System ID(s) in the body of the email.

    Hope that helps.

    ciao,

    Re: Avid Academic Version questions and plugins

    I am having a similar problem to the original poster:

    I downloaded MC6 Academic (Teacher) for MAC with the understanding that Academic versions come with Squeeze/FX/etc.  When I go to the 3rd party licensing site, I receive an error message that my system ID does not correspond to any 3rd party license.  Are the bundled apps only available for Student licenses?  If so, there is no indication of it in the avid store when actually purchasing the software...

    Re: Avid Academic Version questions and plugins

    That doesn't sound right to me.  The MC6 installs as far as I know all include the production bundle.  Try emailing Marianna Montague (marianna.montague@avid.com), Avid's customer advocate.  If anyone can help she can.

    tkb2@cornell.edu:

    No, the bundled apps are for everyone.  Did you register your copy of Media Composer?  If you haven't, that may be why the system doesn't recognize you.

    If you did register, then follow jwrl's advice and send an email to Marianna.

    p.s. Register links here:
