    free trial

    Just wanted to know if 5.0.0 version of the free trial is available anywhere?  We are running on 2 systems with 5.0.0 and the director wants to be able to use his laptop over the weekend, so I was thinking he can use the free trial, but all I see available is 5.0.3....any suggestions?

    We haven't update because we are in the middle of a big show, and want to avoid any problems coming up if we do so.

     

    thanks

    Go with the free trial download of 5.0.3, but FINISH YOUR BIG SHOW FIRST!

    There is also the latest patch, 5.0.3.1 available at the patch center that corrects many bugs that have been reported by users, but I don't know if it is applicable when using the free trial version.

    Re: free trial

    He just wants to use the avid on a laptop for the weekend, we won't be updating our systems at all. We are months aways from finishing.

    He wants to be able to take the external drive that he has been using on the Mac Pro at the office, and edit over the weekend on his laptop somewhere else. Then continue back on the mac pro (when he comes back) with the external at the office like we always have been.

    Thats why I wanted to install 5.0.0 on his laptop.

    suggestions?

    Just install the latest Trial version.  There is no compatibility issues between 5.0 and 5.0.3.

    Would that be a Mac or PC laptop?

    Re: free trial

    Ok so he would be able to open up the 5.0.0 project in the 5.0.3 then back to 5.0.0?

     

    Just want to double check that, thats what you mean...

     

    thanks

    Re: free trial

    There really should be no issues, other than 5.0.3 being more stable and less buggy than 5.0.
