Thanks Jacque,

I can't quite picture the "persistent backdrop." Is there a way to preview it?

Will Media support all the commands, functions, properties and 
containers presently supported by Dreamcard, except for external 
database-related stuff?

If so, will Media do other things that DC presently doesn't do?

I still can't figure out if Media is meant as a DC replacement, or if 
it also adds functionality to Studio. Am I overlooking some kind of a 
comparison chart on the RR website? If I'm not, this really shouldn't 
be so hard.

I paid for an extended licence for DC some time ago, so renewing the 
license is not an issue. I thought it was a bargain at the time, 
still do.

Cheers,

Tim
