    Well I really do understand the need for securing the legitimacy of the software, but I do have to chime in and say that it should be carefully done to avoid irritating the legitimate owners of the software. I've long since given up on all the Serious Magic stuff because of the tedium involved in registering their products via their lengthy registration codes. Moving to another system is a real hoot. Without an internet connection, which is not desireable on an editor, it's a real P.I.T.A. and I'd much rather have a dongle of some type.

    Dongle works for me too.

    I'd prefer a dongle, too.

    That's how GV/Canopus did it with EDIUS 4, and that seems to be working, from what I hear.

    Not that this is an official voting thread or anything, but over the years, after having to get replacement VT cards, or motherboards, or keeping software alive across newly built workstations, I've come to appreciate the simplicity and convenience of registration codes tied to USB dongles. It's a pain to have to re-register everytime you rebuild your system. I vote for USB dongle for future standalone SpeedEdit purchases, with an upgrade option to USB dongle for those of us that get SpeedEdit with a past VT upgrade/purchase.

    I expect the SpeedEdit that comes with VT[5] to be tied to the VT card. It's the stand-alone version (i.e. the extra one for those of us who upgraded early) that should have a dongle for its copy protection. Just like Lightwave.

    Well, logically, based on LW, it's not like Newtek doesn't have tons of experience with USB dongles.

    Just to chime in: Dongle please.
    Licensing issues like that would really make me consider getting Speed Edit as all (since I travel more and more,I'd rather pack in a couple of dongles than re-register every time I'm on a three day trip).

    Not to mention the fact that a single person may work on multiple machines, especially in smaller studios.

    Heck, even an extra 50 bucks for a dongled version would be o.k. imho.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Since it has never lied about going to war, raising taxes, or extra-maritial affairs, I vote for Dongle also....

    Now if my choices were that easy tomorrow.

    Dongle or 2-Seat Included, Please

    Either a dongle like LightWave, or a 2-seat license like Photoshop or Native Instruments. If a machine is going to go down, it will do so at 3am during a rush to deadline.

    Now imagine the same scenario with only ONE license!

    Lol, well, either case (1 or 2 lics) is a reason not to get it unless absolutely necessary...

    I have to say it seems a bit futile to be discussing this so late in the game. SE is being launched next week. Being one who has had to re-register VT on many occasions, Newtek makes the process pretty painless. The last time I had to do it, I think it took less than 5 minutes. There is no licensing solution that will please everyone.
