    I've been running MC7 in 10.8.4 for about a week with no problems to report. But if you need support from Avid, you should wait till 10.8.4 is qualified.

    MC v7.0 is Qualified on OSX 10.7.5 and 10.8.4 

     

    Please refer to the updated documentation or version matrix if you need clarification.

    It's at the bottom of page 9 of the v7.0 readme. Bottom of page 4 for the version matrix.

    Hi. I had to upgrade from 5.0.4 (nice and stable) running on Snow Leopard, to V7 on Mountain Lion and regret it hugely. I had to as a collegue is creating bins in V7 which are not compatible with anything below 5.5. I find it runs sluggishly. There's a bug (mentioned by others also) where the play / space bar will not work - you have to activeate a screen a second time to work. There are other annoying bugs which I'm sure Avid will address over time, but it's hassle if you're under pressure. Also, Mountain Lion has created a problem where the seocnd monitor (or Composer monitor) is not recognised as a real monitor, but more like a TV and as such, there is a colour overlay problem. This manifests itself when you press play and stop in the Composer window, there is a coour / gamma and brightness shift. There are fixes out there (forcing RGB to the monitor) but I have not managed to find one for Apple Displays. My system is very simple - MacPro, 2x Nvidia GeForce graphics cards, 8GB Ram and no peripherals that might cause problems. If I were you, I'd wait. But having said that, some people are getting along fine...
