For the record, this is the most awful software upgrade procedure I’ve experienced.
- The previous versions of various Apple pro media apps such as Motion don’t run at all on newer, Intel-based machines. BOO!
- The various individual products have been discontinued in favor of the Final Cut Studio bundle which includes a bunch of them. You can no longer get just one. So to run your old copy of Motion on your new MacBook, you have to upgrade to the entire bundle… BOO!
- …which they offer a huge cross-grade discount on! YAY!
- To get your new installation media, you have to mail in your original installation DVD… which will naturally get lost in the mail. BOO!
The good news is, if you have enough documentation you can talk them into replacing your lost media so you can send in for the upgrade again.
