Sync Clip Library

Share the clip library of Silverstack via ShotHub to keep clip metadata and file information synced across computers.

In order to use the clip library sync feature a Silverstack cloud project should be created first. You can either sync a project from Silverstack with ShotHub or create a new project on the ShotHub web page.

Then, there are generally two ways to connect another Silverstack application to the synced cloud project. Create a new Silverstack project (1) by syncing the clip library from a Silverstack cloud project or merge the local clip library (2) with a Silverstack cloud project. For both ways, make sure that you have added your Pomfort Account in the application preferences to be able to access the Silverstack cloud project.

(1) Create a new local Silverstack project means that connecting the Silverstack desktop application with a ShotHub project creates a new local project that is “synced”. Further changes in the clip library are bi-directionally synced with the cloud project and connected Silverstack applications.

  1. Click the “Sync from ShotHub” button in the Project Chooser (next to the button “New Project”)
  2. Choose your account or sign in to ShotHub with your Pomfort Account credentials (for first usage only)
  3. Choose the Silverstack cloud project that you want to sync with to create a new Silverstack project
  4. Click “Start Sync” to start the sync process of your local library with the selected ShotHub project.

(2) Merge local clip libraries means that you can merge a local Silverstack library with one cloud project, which makes especially sense when you started two Silverstack projects independently. That way, folders with the same name in both local libraries are merged (e.g. “Shooting Day 1”) into the synced clip library, bins are never merged, even if they have the same name.

  1. Click the cloud button in the toolbar
  2. Choose your account or sign in to ShotHub with your Pomfort Account credentials (for first usage only)
  3. Choose the Silverstack cloud project that you want your current local Silverstack project to appear in
  4. Click “Start Sync” to start the sync process of your local library to a Silverstack cloud project in ShotHub.

NOTE: If you are not using the same Pomfort Account on the other device or want to authorize other persons to sync with your project, you can invite them as contributors to your ShotHub cloud project. Learn more about Managing Members and Invitations here.
