Film and video editing software compatible for Mac OS X 10.5. Version 3 is the first version of Media Composer software by Avid that does not require specialised proprietary hardware.

Download #1 is the installer disc image for Mac. The retail disc comes with both Mac and Windows versions of the software; however, I do not have a copy.

Download #2 contains instructions to avoid the requirement of a dongle to run the software. The crack only works on an Intel Mac. For PPC you will need a dongle.

See also: Avid Media Composer 6.0, released in 1995 for Classic Mac. (Clearly, Avid has reset the version numbering, this occurred in 2003 as they transitioned from Meridien hardware acceleration products to the Avid Adrenaline and Avid Mojo products. A software-only configuration option was added in AVID "Adrenaline" Media Composer 2.5 )

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) and 10.5.4 (Leopard)

You are right. I made additional tests on a Leopard/PPC iMac and a Leopard/Intel iMac and the crack only works on the Intel Mac. I have added the relevant info to the page

I have installed Avid, then comes the reboot
then replacing SuperPro32 in /Library/Frameworks/SuperPro32.framework/Versions/A
then replacing Avid Media Composer inside the application package under Contents/MacOS
After this he ask for a dongle

System is 10.5.8 on a Power Mac G5

I will test it on a 10.6 VM in the next hour and give a feedback

EDIT: Under Snow VM it dont ask for a dongle (i get a bus error perhaps because OGL ins not available)

So it looks like the "crack" only work on Intel

It works for me (I always test that cracks work before I upload). BTW I tested in Snow Leopard. Are you sure you followed the instructions exactly?

Looks like the no-dongel patch doesn't work. SuperPro32 and AvidMediaComposer replaced but Avid wants the dongle.

I have a no-dongle patch for v. 3.1.2. However, I do not have an installer disc image for Avid Media Composer 3.1.2. If anyone has this version, please upload it to this page. I will then upload the patch.
