^ If you intend on capturing multiple angles of video in such a way that each angle is being ingested on an individual Mac, "Stacking" is the process of simultaneously viewing multiple angles during or after the live-capture session. Stacking more than three angles is not recommended unless you have a Mac Pro (not a MacBook Pro).

If you are using an external hard drive to save and work with pre-captured Studiocode files, a thunderbolt or firewire 800 cable interface is necessary. USB is not recommended. Capturing directly to the Mac (not the external hard drive) is recommended.

If your Macs will be networked for file sharing purposes, please refer to Network Protocol Requirements for network requirements.
