I'm wondering the specifics of th VLab licensing, and if it can be installed on multiple computers at once, as long as it is not used simultaneously? And/or could it simply have the license deactivated on one, without performing a full uninstall?

Here's the deal: my siblings may be helping me to finish my fanfilm, by helping to rotoscope the lightsabers. I don't have the budget to purchase another FXhome product right now, but need to be able to continue working on my own machine, while they do the rotoscoping. So I'd like to install Vlab on their computer, and set them to work. I'd even be willing to deactivate it on mine (if this is possible) during the time they're using it. I just don't want to uninstall the whole program off my machine, if at all possible.

Thanks, I'm just trying to be honest and obey the law.

The license only allows for a single install at any one time, so you'd need to uninstall it from your machine to install it on another one.
