I save all my files as DNG, I have 2 hard drives, one in my desktop the DNG's are saved to and another external hard drive that I use to view/ modify the photos on my laptop. The 2 drives DNG folders are kept in sync.
All modifications to the DNG's are seen by both PC's after LR synchronizes, except virtual copies. As all mods are stored inside the DNG file itself I thought VC's would be picked up. I can only presume from this that VC's info is saved in the LR catalog which is why I'm not seeing them on the other PC, can anyone confirm this?
Yes, a virtual copy is not a separate file (except for the preview), and only excists in the catalog.
Thanks for your reply and confirming my presumption.
If you want to save your Virtual Copies to file you should use Snaphots - thats how I do this.
Snapshots are saved in the sidecar xmp file for proprietary RAW files or inside of DNG file and will be synced too.
