    can I run MC 8.9.4 (pre-subscr.) on new MBP M3 (came with Sonoma OS)

    Hi there,

    Retired during covid (was turning 70 anyway) but was recently asked to edit some interviews with just a bit of cover.

    I can do it with HD (not 4K) footage on my trusty old 2010 Mac Pro running High Sierra OS, using my trusty old 8.9.4 version of Media Composer, but I'm wondering if I can get this old version of MC onto my new MacBook Pro, and if I can, will it run with the new Sonoma OS.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks very much, 

    Malcolm

    My guess is that it would run...

    The version matrix doesn't go back that far but current versions run on your configuration.

    Thank you for the reply. I guess I'll make sure I have Rosetta installed. Will then look for v. 8.9.4 to download.

    Hi Malcolm......

    Hope you are well and great to see you still posting.   MC 8.9.4 most likely wont run on Sonoma and definately wont on a dongle based license.  Better off using the trial version of MC 2024.3 for 30 days than to have an install headache.

    You can always email me too if you need a tad longer than the 30 days just to get this interview work done.

    Best
