    ...and a little birdy said that at some random time, it's going to want the dongle, especially for important operations.

    Is it safe to insert or take the dongle out when the system is ON ?
    I won't take this risk.

    Can Edius continue working properly without the dongle inserted?

    I'm fairly sure the software EULA states that you may only run the software on any one system at any given time (with the dongle providing the portability). (30-day trial mode exepted)

    So uh, running on more than one machine with a dongle-swap is breaching the EULA..

    it sure does, so does Pro Coder, once running the dongles can be removed and the apps keep going until you close them, then they need the dongle again to re open.

    Then you need wireless dongle--a feature request for GV...

    If I'm not moving between machines, my preferred method is:
    1) Establish internal USB port (via cable if motherboard has sufficient headers or via add-in card).
    2) Stick dongle(s) on internal USB port(s).


    We just did it here in Kobe so yes it is quite possible.

    But I have to agree, if I had only one dongle for each I am not sure I would risk it.

    it is under CD\Tools\EdiusLM

    I wouldn't use it though except if it was absolutely necessary...
    By merging the licenses you are multiplying the risk...
    Loosing one dongle/one license means that you have to pay for one software...loosing one dongle/many licenses means that you have to pay a lot....(!)

    Should be on your E4 installation CD/DVD somewhere, with a name like 'EDIUSLM.EXE'

    Dear Kenneally,

    EDIUS LM app
    can you please give a short description what app you are using here?

    To be honest, I only discovered it by running the EDIUS LM app on a 'super dongle' we have here used at NAB. My understanding is that this is only possible with ProCoder 3/EDIUS v4 dongles.

    EDIUS v3 and/or ProCoder 2.0 can't be a part of this party..

    Sure can - like with the notion of putting licenses onto the hard drive, you're "*******" the license off the dongle, rendering it into a $60 piece of plastic, metal and silicon. So if your (now combined) dongle breaks or is lost/stolen, you now have NO applications. While EDIUS is forgiving in that it gives you 30 days of basic, non-dongled use, ProCoder 3 simply won't run.

    Beware.

    The ironic thing is that I bought a USB hub last week because I got tired of juggling cables and the dongles. My LCD has a built-in 2-port USB hub and I was using that for the dongles, but I always wound up unplugging one of them to plug in my phone, my DSLR, or my HVX200 -- the location was just too convenient.
