    Newer O/S with old AVID MC

    Stupid question:
    Roughly speaking I guess it’s fair to say: the latest versions of Max O/S more or less support the latest AVID Versions. Sort of. Ish.
    But is it fair to say the newer versions of Mac O/S will support much older AVIDs? Quite a lot of other apps seem to continue working un hindered after the O/S is updated.

    Anyone got any experiences they’d care to share?
    Ta.

    it depends.... 

    Once you get to High Sierra and beyond, the changes to the OS require changes to the application.  What specifically are you asking about re: OS

    If it isn't indicated in the approved Avid Version Matrix (see PDF attached to that page for older versions) it hasn't been tested and your mileage may vary.

    Perhaps if you offer a specific OS/MC combo, someone can comment if they have been successfully using that configuration.

    What version of MC are you looking to support?

    If you look at Kevin's post and click the Matrix go to the bottom and Legacy pdf. MC 8.7 is qualified on Mac OS X 10.12.1

     

     

     

    Thanks,
