In order to register and post messages on any one of the Avid Community Forums you agree to abide by the rules below. These rules are contained in the Avid Forums Rules required during the forum registration process.Considering the real-time nature of the Avid Forums, it is impossible for Avid to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted.

This is a user (peer-to-peer) forum. Though Avid employees do visit the forum periodically, if product support is needed we recommend you contact Avid CS directly, especially for issues relating to accounts or licensing where other users would be unable to assist.
