Before I post a feature request, has this question come up before?
I would like to see a split or sub-licence feature to enable Prelude to be installed on a field computer (i.e. laptop), while the rest of the suite can stay on my main editing machine.
I've found OnLocation valuable in the past as a tool for, well, what it was designed for . I attach the camera via firewire to the laptop, and I can see the vectorscope and other scopes, audio levels, and capture footage straight to the laptop hard drive. This has worked for me because I got a complimentary copy of CS4 with my CS5.5 suite, as an aid in transitioning from 32-bit to 64-bit, and it works really well for me.
I would like to have an all 64-bit setup eventually, i.e. 64-bit Win 7 laptop for the field work, and 64-bit win 7 desktop for editing. It would be REALLY helpful to licence Prelude on the laptop, and everything else on the desktop. I don't use Prelude on the desktop, because all of the tools I need are available in PPro.
You can install the entire suite or parts there of on a main computer and a secondary computer such as your field laptop. In your situation, you could install everything but Prelude on the editing machine and just Prelude on the laptop (if space is an issue), or the full suite on both (if space is not an issue). The only thing is, you cannot use both computers at the same time. Hope this helps.
