Media Composer v8.2 is qualified for OS X Yosemite

Media Composers, rejoice: your NLE of choice is now compatible with OS X Yosemite, including the Symphony option. Now, before you run off and download Yosemite, for the love of God, back everything up twice…

Avid have officially confirmed that Media Composer and Media Composer | Symphony Option will both work with OS X 10.10 Yosemite. However, users who are running “dual 6 core Mac Pro towers (Westmere) and the 2013 Mac Pro with a single 12 core CPU may experience performance issues with transcode, render, and playback.  These degradations are typically seen with higher resolution material. The issue has been logged with Apple and [Avid] are awaiting an update.”

You’ll also need to make sure you’re running the latest builds of New Blue Titler Pro v1 and v2 in order to avoid installation errors.  These builds are available for download through Avid’s Application Manager, and details of how you’ll want things set up for a seamless installation can be found in the Media Composer | Software readme file.

You can find the readme and other key documentation over at the Avid Knowledge Base.
