[Chris Harlan] "And, I'v been roaming with FCS for the last five years. I've taken my work on all manner of vacation, and on afternoon getaways. Its not like X is somehow mobile and other NLEs are not. That'a a fallacy.

At the risk of brushing agains the "beating a dead horse" thing...

Chris, nobody every said that you can't edit on the road with Legacy. People do it all the time.

But if you don't understand the qualitative difference between X and Legacy as a mobile editing platform, then you're NEVER going to get this point.

Legacy on a laptop, cut off from the "home base" assets of network and storage was an exercise in diminished capacity. X on a laptop is EXACTLY the same as X on a desktop. It's a seamless experience.

If you haven't used X enough to experience that, then please don't keep coming back to the "mobile editing was "possible" in Legacy."

It's also possible to drag race with a Volkswagen. But few do that seriously. It's a very, poor tool for that purpose, while X is an absolutely superb tool for mobile editing - perhaps the finest out there from what I've both experienced and heard.
