Legacy Movie Magic Budgeting 7 transitioning to end-of-life status on 6/30/21

Earlier this year EP launched the new Movie Magic Budgeting 10 with a newly designed user experience, simplified workflows, intuitive dashboards and much more. Consequently, EP has made the decision to retire the legacy Movie Magic Budgeting 7 product.

Entertainment Partners will continue to provide support to Movie Magic Budgeting 7 customers through the end-of-life date of June 30, 2021. After this date EP and MovieSoft  will no longer provide customer or technical support for Movie Magic Budgeting 7 (MMB 7).

On how many computers or devices can I install Movie Magic?

The Premiere and Upgrade Edition are granted to one user who can install Movie Magic on 2 computers (MAC/PC) simultaneously. So technically, you can activate your license on two Macs or two PCs or one of each.

The Academic version can be installed on 1 computer only.

Students and educators must provide a valid student or faculty ID card, film course schedule, registration receipt, report card or letter of enrollment on film school letterhead.

What is the difference between the Academic and Premiere License?

The Premiere and  Academic version are technically 100% identical. They offer the same level of features.

How do I proceed if I want to install the application on a second computer?

Simply, get connected to your Moviesoft account through the second computer.
Click on your most recent order and download your application.

How does it work if I change computer?

If your software is already installed on two computers, you will first need to deactivate it from one of your computers and then ‘reinstall and reactivate it ” on your new computer.

To deactivate your license:
Launch MMS or MMB
Go To Help Menu / Licensing…

However, if you can no longer access one of your computers (HD crashed or computer stolen), you can remotely recover a license when installing your new software. This procedure can only be used only when deactivation is not an option, and only once during a 90-day span.

Common reasons not to be able to download on a Mac computer

“File Damaged”… Error Message
On a new MAC, by default you can’t download from any store except APPLE STORE, unless you change your settings. Go to System Preferences / Security / Privacy and then in General Panel change your settings.

Password requested
If you are on a MAC and try to install the program and a window comes up asking for your Admin Password, that is your computer password, not your Product Key/ License Activation ID.
If you do not have a MAC password you will need to go to System Preferences/Users and create one. Alternatively, you can contact Apple.
