    Re: Media Composer to Symphony 6 Crossgrade - $999

    Something weird happened to me today...

     

    I finally gave in and ordered the $999 Symphony 6 crossgrade yesterday (and have been using for most of the day today; it's really nice !)

    But three and a half hours ago, someone from Avid tried calling regarding yesterday's order (we got cut off because of the storm so I have no clue as to what the point of the call was...)

    ...but now, when I log into my account on avid.com website, my Symphony purchase is gone from the "Your Products" page (!?!)

    (It's still listed under "View Order History - 2012" but not under "Your Products")

     

    I tried calling the guy back but avid doesn't have a phone number... I've emailed but still no reply. :-/

    Like I said, weird.

    George......

    Not saying I can do anything but I have posted a few times that if you feel your circumstance warrants consideration I am happy to entertain it.  Send along via email your sales order showing when you bought and what you bought and I can advise you.

    Hmm that is odd. Could you rovide me with your sales order # for the purchase via email so I can check it.  Also provide me with the email address used to purchase the crossgrade.

    Email addy below.

    I will sort this out for you...

    Re: Media Composer to Symphony 6 Crossgrade - $999

    From the download center:

    BCC is 8.0.4.1

    Sorenson is 8.1

    Avid FX is 6.0.6

    The BCC Avid upgrade for MC 6 is $495.00 at the Boris website.

    So add that to the cost of upgrading to MC 6 at either $499 (5.5 to 6) or $599 (Pre 5.5 to 6) and the upgrade to Symphony at $999 is cheaper, gives you BCC 8, Sorenson, Avid FX, and Avid DVD (PC Only) as well as vastly superior color correction toolsets. But remember, the $999 cross grade expires this Friday.

    Re: Media Composer to Symphony 6 Crossgrade - $999

    I had considered going for this offer. Had I not already upgraded my suite to MC 6 and BCC 8, this would have been a no-brainer, I suppose, although I am still not confident that the carrying costs won't be higher with Symphony.

    Good luck to those who did upgrade - hope you post your successes with Symphony - would love to hear how it performs for you.

    Cheers

    Done. I am Symphonied. Procrastination paid off. I also ordered Avid Pro Tools 10+MBox Pro, also a fantastic deal, and now face a daunting and fun-filled installation. I also recently dropped money upgrading to Adobe CS 6 Master for my photo editing and business illustration and promotion. But when I am finished, I will have a lot of capability and a fantastic toolbox both for sight and sound. I feel lucky to be living in a time when so many great programs are available at what are really very low prices when compared to how it was just a few short years ago. Can you imagine what it would have cost in 2000 to have the capabilities we take for granted nowadays? Pretty amazing.

    Yes indeed, because the total circa 2000 cost for what you mentioned above would have been well into 6 figures.

    Follow-up on Universal Mastering:

    Job ter Burg:
    I placed the following here some time ago, which may help. It explains the difference between Mix & Match framerates (standard feature in MC as well as Symph) and Universal Mastering (only on Symph):

    posted elsewhere by Job:
    here's what I drew up last year, but never got to finish. It's lacking some additional data, and may need to be double-checked on certain facts (like the ability to do insert edits within consistent pulldown cadence when playing out a a progressive sequence to 60i).

    Disclaimer: use at your own risk, I haven't been able to completely verify all data in the document.
