It looks like the Avid people thought what Adobe did last week was a good idea. Here’s another 50% off deal in response to the problematic start of Apple’s new Final Cut Pro X.
Excerpt from Avid press release:
In response to your feedback, we are extending the cross-grade to Media Composer – through September. Final Cut Pro (excluding FCP X) users can get Media Composer 5.5 at the promotional price of $995 USD.
What’s more, you’ll get free Avid Media Composer for Final Cut Pro Users online training from Class on Demand (a $100 USD value)
So the question for many of us is: Learn FCPX, learn Premiere CS or learn Avid MC? I haven’t decided yet, what’s your choice? Definitely a good idea to make this decision while the competition is hot.
Here’s how you can get Avid Media Composer 5.5 for $995 (or 800€):
– Go to the Avid Store, add item(s) to cart and checkout.
– Enter FCP serial number and email address in this form.
– Enter the discount code (you’ll receive it in your email) in Avid Store checkout.
Through otherresellers Avid Media Composer 5.5 currently costs about $2000.
Offer expires September 30, 2011
