    Need add on recommendations MC 8.3

    Fist off I had to replace my hard drive so I am starting from the beginning upgrade from MC 6 to MC 8.3.  I am just hobbies but do a lot of family and vacation videos and special events like car and Air Shows.  Anyway because I had to upgrade from starch I do not have squeeze I do not have Avid FX.  I do have Adobe After Effect 6 and Adobe Media encoder so I could encode without purchase Squeeze.  My goal is not to round trip so much.  I was looking at the Boris products but not sure which one. Looking for something for keying and color correcting and titles. Any suggestions?  Is there away purchase little at a time?

    If you have MC6, you should have a download link and activation code for Avid FX in your account.  It's not included with MC8 anymore, but it will work if you have it already!

    Same goes for Squeeze - you should be able to install the version you had before.  That doesn't have anything to do with what version of MC you have.

    I use both (well, I use Squeeze, but I have AvidFX and it works) with MC8.

    My understanding is Avid FX dose not work with 8.3 is this true?  I am kind of stuck I had to switch out my hard drive.  How do find or retrieve my AvidFX and Squeeze activation code?

    When you say "switch out your hard drive" you mean your OS drive & not your data drive, correct? They should be seperate drives and not connected by usb. Is what you're trying to say, my OS drive died or is so corrupt I can't use it, I don't have a backup & I no longer have the installation disks to reinstall the programs?  If so, & it is corrupt, not dead, try replacing the OS drive, install your OS & connect the old OS drive as a data drive and attempt to recover your important data.

    Re: Need add on recommendations MC 8.3

    I got it. I found some old emails I just have to use the original Serial numbers for Sonic DVD and Avid FX.  I will have to uninstall Squeeze 10 to get 8 to work. I am getting a conflict between the two because I activated 8 after I installed 10 which is not activated.

    Thanks
