I'd like to be able to use LR cc on both of my home computers. I would not have it open on the machines simultaneously. I'm running late-model iMacs.
I understand that LR is not easy to network. However, if I attached an NAS to each machine by ethernet, and mirrored the NAS's overnight, could that provide a solution? I've heard that Dropbox can be a solution, and maybe I could use Dropbox on an NAS attached to each machine, that could work as well. I also do video editing (with Final Cut Pro X) and I'd like to do the same thing with video. It seems to me that the wired connection to each machine would eliminate the wifi penalty of using a single NAS (if that is possible).
You can install the Lightroom on two machine, officially adobe has not tested Lightroom using network drive or sharing the catalog on the network drive between two computers.
You can use an external drive, save the catalog on the external drive.
and you can switch the drive between computer.
I thought about carrying a drive back and forth between computers. It's functional, if clunky. I was hoping for something a little more elegant but that might be my best option.
