    Re: Media Composer to Symphony 6 Crossgrade - $999

    In Australia, with the $Aus well above the $US we're expected to pay around $1130US.  Which of course means that it will be most likely sourced from the US.  Even with international shipping costs there's an appreciable saving.

    I knew that free trade agreement was useful for something.

    Mine just says "Sorensen Squeeze 8".  There's no "lite" or "pro" or "turbo" or "XLT" or anything.

    VAT is not 300 USD! In our country it is 20%.

    Price in US not includes tax?

    Whether or not you get charged sales tax in the US depends on where you live and where the company you're buying from is located.

    http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/sales-tax-internet-29919.html

    If an online retailer has a physical presence in a particular state, such as a store, business office, or warehouse, it must collect sales tax from customers in that state. If a business does not have a physical presence in a state, it is not required to collect sales tax for sales into that state.

    Also from the FAQ:

    FAQ:
    Q: Do the ScriptSync and PhraseFind options come with the Symphony 6 crossgrade or upgrade?

    A: No. ScriptSync and PhraseFind are add-on options that can be purchased separately here.

    Re: Media Composer to Symphony 6 Crossgrade - $999

    The main question is, why should i spend a lot of money for a software with a few more features when i`ll get an upgrade to Adobe CS6 with revolutionary news and features like Color correction tools, audio software and with after effects with 3D camera tracker included, new AVID import features and much more of new features? And presumably the price will be half of the symphony software (which will include probably the same bugs as MC 6.0.1)

    We all have to ask ourselves these questions, Zoppito.  If you feel that CS6 better suits your needs and that economically you'll be better off, and most importantly you will be happy to lose the features that Avid provides, then your decision is clear.

    Re: Media Composer to Symphony 6 Crossgrade - $999

    What i meant is to use the best of both worlds. MC as the editing software (ok, with some issues, but i hope there will be soon a solution) and CS6 as effects, audio, color correction-tool. I think a lot of us are working already this way. And when i  compare the advantages of a symphony upgrade with those of a CS6 upgrade ....

    Zoppito:

    I didn't get that.  I thought, like jwrl, that you were saying you need to weigh up the cost of MC vs the cost of CS6.

    Zoppito:
    MC as the editing software (ok, with some issues, but i hope there will be soon a solution) and CS6 as effects, audio, color correction-tool. I think a lot of us are working already this way.

    I'm sure that's true.  MC is a great editor, and while it's got reasonable effects, audio, and color correction capabilities, CS beats it in some of these areas, so many people use each of them for the task they're good at.

    Zoppito:
    And when i  compare the advantages of a symphony upgrade with those of a CS6 upgrade

    Now you're losing me again.  If your premise is you need the capabilities of both an Avid editor and an Adobe production package, I agree, but at the same time you seem to be comparing one upgrade to the other.  If you need both, I don't understand why you're comparing them to each other.

    Zoppito:

    Many of us are already doing this, just remember that this is two differnt companies, some days ago I helped a user that had got his PP - MC workflow broke when having updated to MC 6 .

    Zoppito:

    and CS6 as effects, audio, color correction-tool.

    Are you sure of that or is it just something that you hope for, we still don´t know if there are compability problems or not as CS 6 isn´t officially released yet .

    What I can suspect is that the Matrox dual applications workflow that finally have got fixed with the new drivers on the PC side might again go into a beta phase, this time trying to get the new version of Adobe compliant with the Matrox driver versions for MC 6.

    And, when that is fixed, Avid will release a new version that you have to install and there will again be driver and compability problems an so on, the Saga continues.

    Much better to use what you have and works and let others do the beta tests for you IMO .
