    Avid Media Composer 8.8.5 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6

    Hello everyone!

    I have Media Composer 8.8.5 and I'll need to upgrade to macOS Sierra.

    The documentation says that this version of Media Composer is compatible with 10.12.5. Unfortunately, the only version I was able to get from Apple was 10.12.6.

    Has anyone used Media Composer 8.8.5 with macOS 10.12.6? Are they compatible, or will I have to install version 10.12.5, instead?

    Thank you in advance.

    You shoud be fine.  I ran that version during tetsing of the higher 8.8.x version and had prior run that with 8.8.5.

    Hello Robert!

    So far, after a week working with Media Composer 8.8.5, over macOS 10.12.6, everything works fine. Yes


    There's only a graphic glitch in the Timecode Window that becomes partially transparent. This happens when launching Media Composer, after quitting it with this window openned. All you have to do to fix this is to resize the window. 

    In case anything arises, I'll add it to this thread.

    Best regards,
