How MaxCloudON Sync Manager works
Our goal is to make you feel like our system is a part of your everyday workflow. That’s why we’ve created MaxCloudON Sync Manager, it will automatically copy all the input files (assets) that your projects needs from your workstation or file server to the storage we provide you (from the directories you select) so the render nodes you rent will be able to use it in the rendering process. You can also specify folder for the output to be downloaded in. Once you set the directories, and press the “Enable Sync” button, MaxCloudON Sync Manager will copy your assets to your cloud storage and on a given period of time will automatically check for new files in the this directories and will copy them on our system and then check for new files from the project’s output to download in the local folder selected by you. That way, every time you make changes in your asset folder they will be copied in the corresponding folder located on our storage the same thing applies for the output directory. This presents MaxCloudON Sync Manager’s main function – we create you identical setup with what you have locally. By doing so, you won’t need to change assets paths before submitting anything for rendering to our render farm.
