    MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

     

    I have been running MC First on an older machine and it seems to work fine. So I am tempted to buy a licenced version.

    1. Do I need to delete MCFIRST....first, I can I just buy and activate the licence thought the application manager?
    2. Is it true that Marquee has been dropped in the latest? Really liked that in the old 4.08

      That depends on the version you have installed if it's lower than 2018.8 you need to uninstall the First before you activate MC|Full. If you got 2018.11 all you need to do is punch in the codes, bear in mind that project or bins from MC|First will not work with regular MC

    Re: MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

    It looks like I have 2018.11 so as you say.... "all I need to do is punch in the codes".

     

    Does this inlcude or exclude marquee?

    Also, I have old BORIS effects. Can I install that in the new version of AVID MC? or am I looking at a new ;prushase there also?

    Re: MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

    Here is the info about Marquee. Not sure about the Boris effects is it the Boris Continuum Complete Lite?

    Re: MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

    Borris Effects are on an AVID disk that came with the box.It's actually called AVID FX - but the liscence label  says AVID BORRIS FX.  It would be great to know if they work going forward becasue I used them a lot, and it looks like replacing them will cost a bundle.

    Re: MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

    I'd unintall MC first befor installing MC regular. Marquee is EOL and I think Avid FX hasn't been supported for a while. If you have the discs and it installs it may work but I wouldn't bank on it.

    Note none of your current MC First Projects, bins etc can be moved to MC regular so make sure they are all finished and outputted before the transition. And lets hope you don't need to revisit them :-(

    Re: MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

    Pat is correct but.........  Boris does have an update - Boris RED but it is stand alone. Although the media elements on the Boris RED main web page indicate that the current version is 5.5, the true current version of Boris RED is 5.6.

    I doubt very much that Boris will make another update to this product though - RED/FX/Graffiti have been sunset products for several years now with only minor changes to account for OS/host changes that were the cause of issues or problems. 

    Anyway, the Boris RED installer is available at this link :

    https://borisfx.com/store/?collection=red-graffiti-fx-final-effects&product=red

    Definately uninstall all of MC First before forging ahead with MC.

    Re: MOVING FROM FIRST to MC

    Does MC FIrst interact with folder security on the hard drive. With MC-4 I use windows exploer to delete old files from the MC folders to keep the drive clean, but I can't do that since I installed MCFIRST. I'm locked out by folder security and can't undo that now.
