This tutorial shows you step by step how to install Avid Studio on your computer.

Before beginning installation, be sure to finalize your current works in Studio (render a DV Encoder AVI or MPEG depending on your source). We advise to temporarily inhibit your antivirus software.

One last thing if you install Avid Studio on a new configuration and you own activation keys : read the FAQ #23 How to enable all activation keys at once when re-install Studio?. This FAQ is perfectly valid for an installation of Avid Studio.

Let's go !

After inserting the Avid Studio DVD, Autorun should start. Click "Run Welcome.exe".
Otherwise, you have to get this file directly in the DVD with Windows Explorer.

Okay, so I've downloaded the trial version and everything was going great, till now. The last thing I have to install is the plugins and try to click on it in the installer, but it wont do anything. Even though I can't continue without installing that plugin. The computer doesn't seem to be realizing that I'm even clicking on the plugins.

I have windows 7 with 4GB RAM and I was working good with the avid studio programme until last weak. Certenly I get the message that due to low memory NGstudio has to end the application. this is happend for severall times. Then I decided to deinstall and reinstall avid studio. The problem is that after re-install Avid Studio the programme does not open. can you help me?

Hello Theodor,
4 Gb of memory is really the minimum that must be dedicated entirely to Studio 16.
Please look at the System Requirements for Studio 16 (It is the same for avid).
Also look at the tutorial Optimize your computer before you start editing
Best regards,
