LightNet Clusters

Creating and managing LightNet clusters

To set up a LightNet cluster, the following steps must be done:

  1. Enable LightNet on all machines,

  2. Make sure LightNetProjects folder is set up on all machines,

  3. Scan the network,

  4. Connect to Secondary machines and

  5. Transfer asset files and (re)open the project file.

So, let's proceed step-by-step.

Enabling LightNet

In order to enable LightNet, click on Window and choose LightNet.

A LightNet window will appear, where you will have to select Enabled.

LightNet Projects Folder

The next step is to make sure that all machines you want to include in your LightNet cluster have a LightNetProjects folder set up, as per the LightNet Prerequisites section.

Good to know: If a Secondary machine receives a transfer command from a Primary, it needs to know where it should copy the project and asset files on its hard drives. This is what LightNetProjects folder is for. It's where the Secondary machines, by default, copy all LightNet projects they receive from the Primary.
