Using Neat Video on due-in-two-hours deadline projects might not make sense, unless file and frame are small. At least for my MacBook Pro mid-2012 retina (with plenty of room on external hard drive).
Also, maybe importing finished Neat Video clips into open project would also make sense, for me.
Wish I could hook up a blazing eGPU---not a doable situation for my set up.
