The Avid Upgrade from Media Composer 6 to Version 6.5 provides you with a full version of Media Composer 6.5, at a considerably discounted price, upon your submitting your Media Composer 6.0 serial number.
Media Composer 6.5 is a very powerful editing system that lacks no essential feature that could be found in another system. 6.5 operates on 64-bit performance and offers streamlined HD, file-based and stereo 3D workflows. The platform is designed highly open, enabling you to work with many different formats and with equipment you may already have or plan on getting.
Your purchase supplies you with a package containing instructions for downloading and activating version 6.5 and for submitting your 6.0 serial number. You can download either the Mac or Windows version. Along with Media Composer, you'll get all the programs that accompany it: Avid FX, for creating and animating titles, effects and transitions; Sorenson Squeeze, for optimizing and delivering content; EDL Manager, for exporting timecode metadata; FilmScribe, for exporting film metadata; Log Exchange, for converting shot logs into ALE files; MediaLog, for management of logging and metadata; and -- for Windows users only though -- Avid DVD, a disc authoring program.
