I'm editing a massive project on FCP 7 (Mac Pro (3,2 GHz Quad Core) OSX 10.5.8) and EVERYTHING is stored on an external LaCie drive. That works great for me. I'm the only editor and everyone interrupts me to view footage. Is there an easy way for them to access my external drive and use Quicktime or a logging program to see what they need.
When I was in a newsroom this was easy. In post production not so much.
