    Avid 8 DMG

    Hey there, looking to get Avid 8 on my machine for a work project. But 2018 seems to be the only downloadbable version. Can anyone point me in the direction of an Avid 8 DMG file?

    Thanks! I finally found it out after a while of searching last night. It was quite confusing because I had to create a seperate account just to access the download center.

    But now I'm running into another issue, I signed up for a monthly subscription to MC, but my sysID and activationID are not working for the latest version of MC 8. Is a MC 2018 license not backwards compatible with Avid 8?  I guess I could run a trial version of Avid 8, but that's just a temporary workaround.

    Moving forward, if I'm collaborating with facilities using MC 8, would there be any issues with them opening bins I send over that were created in MC 2018?

    Ughh. Just tried to run a trial and got a "Failed activating trial" error message.

    Thank you! That's very nice of you, but I'm just going to work in MC2018 and hope my collaborators can open my bins! If I run into any issues, I know someone who has an MC8 dongle.

    Has anyone created a bin in MC2018 and succeeded in opening said bin within MC8?

    Yes that works... with a dongle.  But if stuck, ping me on email and I can assist with a temp license to get you out of a ickle if you get in one.

    Re: Avid 8 DMG

    Hello,

    I'm working with a company on Avid 8, and I'm sending them a bin from Avid 2018. It crashes their system when they try to open it. 

    Did anyone find a way to resolve this?

     

    Thanks
