I've had a project lined up that is ready to go next week. I was always aware that the company would deliver the project on an external drive to work from. I just found out that the drive is usb2.
Here's the confusion, I've always been aware that fire wire is a little slower than usb2, but being designed to work with video, fire wire deals with it better.
The video has already been captured and will be delivered as files, so I'll basically just be working with the video files. I'd like to avoid having to free up space and transfer all this data to my computer to work with it, it's all additional time that needs avoided.
Is usb2 sufficient to work with in this way?
