    Apparently Squeeze 7 and Squeeze 8 that come with MC are Lite versions

    -the Squeeze 7 version that you get with the download of MC6, doesn't have watch folders, nor CUDA engines
    (if you download the Squeeze 7 from the sorensonmedia web, the serial that came with your avid, can't be used)

     

     

    -the Squeeze 8 version that you can download from the sorensonmedia web, only activates the LITE version, again without CUDA engines nor watch folders...

     



    I think that if you want the FULL Squeeze 8, you can buy an upgrade at the avid shop
    http://shop.avid.com/store/product.do?product=307571209548144

     

     

    Benefits of upgrading to the full version of Squeeze 8, $149:

    • -Review & Approval – Enjoy this integrated workflow included with your complimentary Sorenson 360  account.
    • -Watch Folders – Set up workflows with the use of this intelligent automated functionality.
    • -Encode videos for Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) delivery in a variety of formats—Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth, Flash Dynamic.
    • -CUDA-enabled GPU acceleration of H.264 encoding – Up to 5x faster than CPU only.
    • -Web Publishing – Customizable Flash players, Playlists, Permalink pages, Analytics and easy Media Management.
    • -Time-Savers – Encode multiple files simultaneously and enjoy SMS or text notification when they’re done.

     

    You guys think this is worth it?

    MC 6 was supposed to ship with a Squeeze 8 sn - turns out it's Squeeze Lite!

    Activation e-mail from Sorenson suggests that the Squeeze serial number is for Squeeze 6.

    Also - once Squeeze 8 is installed it runs as Squeeze 8 LITE (no watch folders and stuff)

    I thought we covered this in previous emails - Marianna stated that we would be able to run Squeeze 8 with the serial number we received with MC 6

    Any comments? This is so not cool!

    BTW - I downloaded and installed Squeeze 8 and used the serial number I received with MC 6 - I did not install the Squeeze package I received with MC 6 - was that a mistake?

    ok, so I went and bought from that link the FULL Sorenson 8 upgrade from the Avid Shop.
    They send me an email with the serial, BUT I was unable to use it...

    I contacted sorenson and they said:

    The serial number you provided for the standard version was incomplete.

    Squeeze serial numbers have 30 characters, grouped into sets of 6. Please check again and let me know if you have a full serial.

    So I adviced the Avid Shop and they said...

    http://www.avid.com/US/support/support-contact

    For further assistance with the installation, please contact our technical support team by selecting your brand here:

     

     

    So now I bought something that none of the two parties can help me activate it!

    Got back from Sebastian Nye of Sorenson..

    He will investigate why the upgrade from Squeeze 8 Lite to FULL from the Avid Store, resulted in sending me an 'incomplete and thus invalid serial number...'

    so be careful if you buy that, keep you posted...

    Re: Apparently Squeeze 7 and Squeeze 8 that come with MC are Lite versions

    I saw in another thread that the "lite" version doesn't have blu-ray presets.

    Can anyone confirm/deny?

    that's right, just a few presets, no blue-ray, no watch folder, this doesn't feel like an upgrade at all... goin back to 6.5 ... be careful!

    • -Time-Savers – Encode multiple files simultaneously and enjoy SMS or text notification when they’re done.

    The "Web Publishing" line is a direct reference to the 360 account. It is not a feature of Squeeze. Same goes for the "Review & Approve" feature.  As far as time-saver, check with support for any specific codec that you will be compressing to. Not every codec is supported for multiple simultaneous encoding - such as MainConcept.

    The "Watch Folder" is very important to have if you are compressing more than two or three files. Squeeze doesn't like to have much more than that in the job list.  If I'm doing more than three, I designate a watch folder.

    If you are make customized settings, save your presets AND the job before you start compressing. You will save yourself a lot of frustration when you do.
