• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

final cut pro x-using with a server system

Reaction score
the company i'm working with has quite a bit of stock footage we would like to upload and we're editing it with the free trial version of final cut pro x, which we will probably buy. however, i cannot figure out how to edit footage from our server without actually importing it to the laptop i'm working on. my boss says i shouldn't have to actually import everything if i'm using the eathernet cord that connects me to the server and therefore the footage
any ideas?
