    Usage of MC 12.18.15 and alternately MC FIRST 21.3.0

    I'm on MC 12.18.15 (Symphony Option/ Mac Os 10.14.6) and want to use alternately MC FIRST 21.3.0 (for my job as a teacher). The Media Files, the projects, the camera files and the user settings are on an external drive. So can the alternate installation and uninstallation cause problems? Best

    The Project and Bins aren't transferable between First and regular MC.MC First doesn't have user settings the same way MC does so thats a non event.

    So the only thing you can share is the camera source files. Not MC First also has limited export options.

    If you are a teacher you should be eligable to the academic MC version. I'd go that route.

    Thanks Pat for your quick reply.

    My problem is that the students have to use MC First, and I want to teach them on my production computer. So I have to uninstall MC and install MC First each week, hoping there won`t occur any problems. What do think?

    Best!

    The installer for MC Firsta nd regular MC are the same. The software is the same its Avid Link that manages how MC launches and what version you get.

    I've found it a real pain trying to switch between them! I'd go for a dual boot!

    Hi Pat,

    thats what I have been considering, but my internal HD is too full...

    So what I´m going to do is using a mixture of Avid First Tutorials and my full version for teaching.

    Thanks a lot, Bernd

    Avid, Just a small feature request. When de-activating switching 'versions' (Normal-Ultimate) is not an issue... but if an editor makes the mistake to select First if a license runs out... The usual license reset is needed. Not a huge pain, but can this be changed?

    Thank you.
