Silverstack Library Sync Feature – Beta Version

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

The Library Sync Feature is supported by Silverstack 8.0 Beta and Silverstack Lab 8.0 Beta. You can use it to sync these applications across several machines or even test it on a single machine by running both Silverstack and Silverstack LAB in parallel.

Here is what you need to get started:

  • Download Silverstack 8.0 or Silverstack Lab 8.0 Beta here.
  • Add your Pomfort Account in the Silverstack preferences
  • Optional: login to ShotHub with your Pomfort Account. Please note that all cloud projects created with Silverstack 8.0 or Silverstack Lab 8.0 Beta are marked as “Beta” in the project dropdown menu.
  • Sync your first project with ShotHub: Sync Silverstack libraries via ShotHub  to see the synced Silverstack library in ShotHub
NOTE:  You don’t need a paid user plan for ShotHub as the sync feature is also supported with the free plan.

SYNC FEATURES

Syncing your Silverstack library via ShotHub to other instances of Silverstack includes:

  • Complete library with all folders and bins
  • All clips, sidecars and documents
