Benefit:  Once an account is created and the user is logged in, they can view and download VCS operations that have been created for them by Mecmesin.  Allows the use of VCS operations in the VectorPro timeline.

The creation of VCS operations is not available to the customer.  If an operation or set of operations is required that is/are not available within VectorPro, they need to contact Mecmesin.  If the requirement is feasible then a Mecmesin representative will need to create the VCS operation and upload it to the Vector Cloud, assigned to that customer's registered email address.

Alternatively, Mecmesin can upload commonly required operations for access by all users of the Vector Cloud.
