    MC Software only.... Is this the same as our Adrenaline upgrade?

    We have Media Composer Adrenalines.  It's ben fun reading about software only Composers and all and how it's going to open up Media Composer to a number of different segments of business and all.  What's it all mean to me though?

    Sure I'm flirting with upgrading my Xpress Pro 5.5.1 system on my laptop to a MC 2.5 software package.  I'm more than curious and also caught up in the hype more than I'd like to admit.  Now since we have Adrenalines with MC dongles (Upgrading as I'm typing, hence the time).  Is the 2.5 software our Adrenalines running the same as the software only version.  In short:  Can I install our NC Software on my laptop and take the dongle with me and it'll work without a DNA box or with a Mojo rather than be tied down to the Adrenaline?  If I remember correctly, 2.2.4 we're running won't even launch without being hooked up to the DNA box.  Never tried it with a Mojo... did not want to throw the firmware into hypercrap mode or anything.

    Is Media Composer Adrenaline upgrade to 2.5 also the Software Only MC 2.5 software?  I'm sure many Adrenaline ownsers are as curious as I am.

    SYMPHONY SOFTWARE ONLY WITH BUILT-IN TELECINE SUPPORT!!!!  After the Composer has gone software only and runs on laptops somewhat functionally I can honestly say nothing would surprise me.  What's next?

    "Is Media Composer Adrenaline upgrade to 2.5 also the Software Only MC 2.5 software?  I'm sure many Adrenaline ownsers are as curious as I am."


    YES.  MC 2.5.x can be ran many different ways.  Software only. with Mojo. with Mojo SDI. with Adrenaline. with Adrenaline with DNXcel Card.


    anyway you want it.

    you can install in on a desktop with Adrenaline and on a laptop as software only and just move the dongle back and forth.

    Hey Mr_difficult-have you actually tried the two computers with the same dongle or are you guestimating?

    I have not tried it. But tell my why it won't.

    This is the way dongles work. They don't care what machine they are one. you can put your avid software on 1000 machines if you want. but only the one with the dongle will work. people have done this pre 2.5, so why wouldn't it work now? if fact i'm pretty sure this is one of avid selling points.  Buy one dongle, load software on Desktop and Laptop and move back and forth if need be.

    We have an Adrendaline w/dnxcel upgrade (2.2.4). Should we bother upgrading? We use this system for onling HD. What would we gain? Running mojo isn't necessary.

    Thanks

    Safe Color Limiting for your onlines, and a few other features. Read the Readme to see if it appeals to you.
