    Which version of MC & MAC OS to run with Pro 15 Retina mid-2014

    This is my first post so be gentle.

    I am having a right old time working out what is the best version of Media Composer and Mac OS to run on my Macbook Pro

    15", 11.3 (mid 2014) Retina.  It is running an 2.8GHz i7, 16GB RAM, Intel Iris Pro 1536mb Graphics and 0.5TB SSD.

    It is presently running Yosemite 10.10.5 and MC 8.6.4.

    I know there are issues with OS level and MC version but for various reasons I need to upgrade the OS but don't know what the optimnal combination OS and MC versions?!?  Is there anyone out there who can give me some guidance?

    Many thanks,

    CL

    Hi,

    About halfway down this page there's a link that says Legacy Matrix, which will take you to a PDF showing what versions of Media Composer are good for whichever OS you need to run.

    Belated thanks for the response.  It is helpful but the problem I am having is not just what OS is compatible with what version of MC, but what actually works.  There are playback issues, particularly with AMA clips, with certain versions of MC, particularly on my older mid-2014 MacBook Pro.
