Avid offers Media Composer 5.5 deal to FCP users
BURLINGTON, MA — In the wake of the controversial introduction of Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and the simultaneous discontinuation of FCP 7, Avid, like Adobe last week, is offering an incentive to Final Cut Pro users.
With its limited-time (expires September 30, 2011) Crossgrade promotion, Avid (www.avid.com) is inviting old and new users to download Media Composer 5.5 (including the Production Suite) for a special price of $995. They are even throwing in Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Users online training from Class on Demand.
Please note this offer is not good for Final Cut Pro X users, only owners of earlier versions. They have set up a page on their site with details: http://www.avid.com/US/specialoffers/fcp-mc-promotion.
