NOTE: A system with Media Composer 8.8 or later is preferred but older versions of Avid are fine as well. As long as it hasn’t expired, a trial version of Avid is fine. 8GB of system memory and Windows 7/OS X 10.10 or later are required to run Media Composer 8.8.

Computer rentals are available for as little $60/week from Hi-Tech Computer Rental in Burbank.

Let us know if you have any questions about system compatibility.
