LightAct's multi-server functionality
LightNet is LightAct's multi-server functionality. It allows you to:
- detect other machines with LightAct on the network,
- make other machines secondary and set up a LightNet cluster of machines,
- transfer project and asset files between all the machines and
- propagate all the changes done on the primary machine to all the secondary machines.
In order for LightNet to work, all computers must be connected to the same network. LightAct allows you to transfer the whole project together with its assets to any machine connected to your LightNet cluster. After the data is copied to all machines, your LightNet cluster is ready to go.
To make the folder a directory where all LightNet project will be transferred to click on Edit and choose Preferences.
Select LightNet and under LightNet project path chose the LightNet projects folder location.
For LightAct to be able to transfer files to LightNet projects folder, it needs to have access to it.
This means you need to share this folder in Windows setup, so that it appears directly in the root of the network machine.
