    Movie Magic Budgeting

    NOTE: Apple's new operating system, Yosemite, has been released. We are currently working on a free update to Movie Magic Budgeting 7 that will make our product compatible. The update will be ready in early November. Please check back soon for more information.

    In the meantime, if you are actively on any critical projects using Movie Magic, we recommend that you refrain from upgrading to Yosemite until we have released the compatibility update.
