The goal of this plugin is to allow two or more LiSP sessions running on different PCs to be synchronized during a performance (no edit synchronization). The two session are supposed to be identical, so, only user interaction with the cues are replicated on other sessions.
How to use¶
The plugin usage is quite simple, the only thing to do, is to add the remote session
you want to “control” to the peer-list, this can be done via
Tools > Synchronization > Mange connected peers
On the left you can find the peers list, on the right the following buttons:
- Discover peers: Allow to search for other sessions in the network;
- Manually add peer: Allow to manually add a peer, using it’s IP address;
- Remove selected peer: Remove the selected peer;
- Remove all peers: Remove all the peers.
To easily retrieve the (local) IP address
Tools > Synchronization > Show your IP
will display the current IP address of the PC.
How it works¶
Once a session is connected, user actions are replicated on the connected one.
This is achieved by sending some info over the network, by default the
50000 (for the discovery) ports are used, those values can be changed
in the configuration file
Two or more sessions can be mutually connected, this way all the sessions share the same “state”.
