Default Installing crossgrade from perp on new MacBook

Hi. I just got a new MacBook and I guess now have to crossgrade to a subscription because the perp doesn't work on Catalina.

Will my old plug-ins still work or are there compatibility issues. I've got several ex PT user buddies who switched to Logic, but I've already begun a project and don't want to change horses in midstream.

I just wanna make sure my plug ins will work, but admittedly am bummed about my perpetual not being usable. I don't use a ton of features and just make my own albums at home.

Thanks

While Avid stopped selling reinstatements at the end of last year, many dealers still have stock. If you buy a reinstatement, you will keep your perpetual license, get a new 1 year support and upgrade plan, and be able to renew that plan before it's expiration date and 30-day grace period have expired.

Yep, try that first (and remember to renew while the plan is still active).

As for plugin you use, you will need to double-check each and every one of them and likely download fresh installers.

thanks. I figured it out, once I discovered where the download links were.
