I was planning to upgrade my Mac OS from 10.8.5 to a more recent version.
The thing is that Avid Media Composer only works with 10.10.3, not the more recent 10.10.4 version.
Does anyone know if it’s possible to download and install 10.10.3 onto their mac now that there’s a more recent version available? And is it recommended?
I’m running MC on 10.10.5 and it’s fine. But of course, this is not yet qualified and I really haven’t rung it out thoroughly.
As far as the update and back-revving, my suggestion is this. Make a second boot drive. If this is a tower, buy a new internal drive and do a clean install of everything from the ground up. Park the 10.8.5 drive on the shelf in case you need it or have to go back to it. You’ll have way less potential problems that way going in either direction.
Oops, if it’s the MBP on your signature, then buy Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper! and clone your internal drive to something you can sit on the shelf. Then do a clean install to the laptop boot drive.
I am also working on Mac version 10.10.5 since last one month. Earlier it gave really fast responses but now it is dead slow. I even updated each software…but it is still slow and crashes projects on FCPX or Premiere pro CC.
