Constantly Updated Backup Machine
The "Collect Files" option is a really helpful tool to set up a backup machine quickly. But as soon as you make a tiny change like transition time, reorder files, add an effect, etc., the backup machine is no longer up to date. It would be great if a backup machine would constantly update itself via network, to always have two identical machines...
As a temporary workaround you can setup a network drive (or google drive) so that both systems are pulling from the same files and you can save a project file in one place. That way to refresh the backup you just reload your file and are back in business.
It would be cool to have a computer designated as “backup” allowing you to auto update in one direction and maybe a push back function if you have to make updates during a show.
Or maybe a “sync” feature.
yes!!! I use the COLLECT consistently - but that is an issue too - as I save this to a Share on the BACKUP machine.
But now my primary is using this file.
So I have to close primary and re-open original file.
