Avid Media Composer Licensing

Note: There were some changes made to Media Composer Licences in 2019. For more information, refer to Changes to Media Composer Licenses in 2019.

You can now easily manage your software licenses from the Avid Link utility. While functionally similar to how software licensing worked in the past, there are new tools, terminology, and activation web pages to be aware of.

Please refer to the documentation for detailed instructions on installing and activating your software.
