    Re: MC 5.5.3.3/SN 5.5.3.3 w/10.7.3 Support NOW AVAILABLE

    If I run 5.5.3.3 on 10.7.3 Lion should I run the operating system in 32 bit mode or 64 bit mode? Can it be left in 64 bit mode and will 5.5.3.3 run correctly, what is recommended by AVID?

    For MC 5, you should run 10.7.3 in 32 bit mode. Only MC 6 is a full 64 bit version.

    Yes, it is. See the version matrix for complete details.

    Re: MC 5.5.3.3/SN 5.5.3.3 w/10.7.3 Support NOW AVAILABLE

    Cheers Larry,

    Thats great,

    Shame the ATI Radeon HD 5770 is the only card qualified ... I was expecting this card but Apple delivered with a 5870 instead, doesn't seem to make a difference, but everytime I have a glitch I think it's probably because this card has not been qualified !

    Anyway, thanks again.

    My understanding is that for Media Composer 5 and higher, Avid will support any Radeon card that Apple supports.

    Thanks again for your time Larry,

    Like I say it seems to work fine . . I had a play with AvidFX the other day to get prepared for moving to MC6 and the app told me the card was not supported .. but it still kind of worked !

    I cannot find the patch Media Composer 5.5.3.3 in the download center. I only have the avid trial. So is the patch not available for test versions?

    At the download center product list, look for the link "Avid Editor Patches".

    Re: MC 5.5.3.3/SN 5.5.3.3 w/10.7.3 Support NOW AVAILABLE

    I may be a little dumb, but to install the Avid 5.5.3.3. patch on a Mac, I just need to: Deactivate, deinstall and install the new 5.5.3.3. dmg, just like everytime, I install a new MC version... right?

    Re: MC 5.5.3.3/SN 5.5.3.3 w/10.7.3 Support NOW AVAILABLE

    Yes, that is correct. With Macs, every new patch is treated the same as a full version install. So, deactivate the license, completely uninstall the old patch, install the new patch and reactivate the license.

    Re: MC 5.5.3.3/SN 5.5.3.3 w/10.7.3 Support NOW AVAILABLE

    Okay, avid's website has beaten me. I've created a Master account and linked my community account to it but I can't get my download centre account to link. I followed the 'forgot password' process and got a temp password for all my accounts but it still doesn't let me link my download centre account. If I try to create a new download centre account it tells me that the email address is already in the system.

    I'm not sure what else to try short of contacting Marianna but I thought I ought to check here in case anyone has any bright ideas.
