I am considering purchasing VisionLab Studio. I have 2 questions.
1. My work flow requires me to work on the same project on both my desktop workstation and my laptop by moving the project from one to the other as needed. Will your licensing allow me to install VisionLab Studio on both computers?
2. Will the CompositeLab part of the program work with Virtual Sets offered by other companies such as Serious Magic?

No, you need one license per computer.

That depends on what format the Virtual Sets (or other media) are in. If it's a proprietary format that only works in Serious Magic's products, then no. But if it's an AVI or QuickTime MOV video, or a collection of images, then yes, you can import them just fine.

If you haven't already, try the demo and see if you can import them.

But I guess it would be the same for most programs. What you could do possibly is install it on a USB key or portable HDD or the like, not violating the "install on one computer" thing etc

But get a team member to confirm this wink

Thanks for the come-back Hendo. Then what would a second liscense for the same product purchase cost? I use Adobe software for my primary video work. They allow the use of a single purchased program on 2 computers that are owned by the same individua: no cost. This is varified upon installation and registration of the program. They understand the importance of this Desktop-Laptop work flow and how common it is with professionals. I would not be willing to buy two liscenses for the same product at full price. What is my recourse?
