    It's going to be hard to edit much off of a thumb drive. I want to say that if proxy mode the files sizes may be small enough that one or two layers would be ok. In my tutorial I actually show the difference in file sizes. What is a 2gb clip in full rez was under 60mb in proxy mode. That's where your biggest benefit comes from. Doing masks or keyframed moves on footage or filters in proxy mode is going to see a benefit but it is not as big of a benefit as file size related tasks will be. Proxy mode is best for data intensive things like multicam. On an i7 laptop I can fluidly edit an 8 cam multicam in proxy mode (original footage was DSLR footage) off of an external USB laptop drive. On a thumb drive, the read speed may be a little slower so you would not see as big a benefit. Single layer or two layers you are probably ok. If possible I would use a laptop external 2.5" drive. USB works ok for most stuff but eSATA of course is better.

Then I bring back the thumb drive and put it back in the original machine where I check it in to be exported in high res. Is that right?
    Just and FYI. I have a video tutorial coming out a week from tomorrow and the subject is proxy mode for Edius. They are being released www.eventdvtv.com. My first one is out there already and covers the new Mask filter what
    was said here already is in the tutorial but I go into detail regarding how it is works.

    If it is just 64GB copy everything onto the laptop internal drive and edit in full quality. Obviously depends on the laptop but my drives/processor can manage HD happily.

    Proxy mode is useful if your laptop is not that powerful or does not have much space. The problem with a flash drive is that it will be plugged in by USB2 which is slow. However if you want to use external drives and the laptop has eSATA you could use that and it will also be fast enough.

    No flash drive will handle the necessary data rates for HD.
    Try the proxy mode from thumb drive, it actually works on low-power laptops easily.
    And, the output is good enough to burn a (low-rez) review DVD for clients.

    You don't have to run it in proxy mode.
    Check out has options.
    You can check out proxies, You can checkout only use area in Highres.

    You can also chose if you want open timeline only or everything.

    You can do with your workflow but it is not the only way. :)
