Introducing Blender Sync
30 Jun 2016 (updated 02 Jul 2016) | by Francesco Siddi
Blender Cloud is growing into a reliable and powerful storage solution. It is our goal to improve the workflow with Blender and today we are taking our next step in this direction: introducing *Blender Sync*. ![](//i.imgur.com/vmieL6r.jpg) ## How does it work Blender Sync is part of the [Blender Cloud add-on](https://cloud.blender.org/services) and it allows users to synchronize their *Blender Startup* and *User Preferences* files across multiple workstations, via the Blender Cloud. Download **and unzip** the [Zip Bundle](https://cloud.blender.org/r/downloads/blender_cloud-latest-bundle.zip), then install and activate the Blender ID and Blender Cloud add-ons. If you installed a previous version of the add-ons they will be automatically upgraded. You need to restart Blender for the changes to take effect. Now you can Save an Load your preferences and settings across devices. Multiple releases of Blender are supported. ![](//i.imgur.com/qD7mqBZ.gif) > Note: Add-ons preferences are synced, but not the add-ons themselves. Other settings that do not intentionally get synced are: CUDA device settings, DPI and file paths in the User Preferences panel. ## Blender Sync is Free We are happy to provide this functionality for free to everyone! All you need is a [Blender ID](https://blender.org/id/about). ## Coming soon: Image sharing As we roll out this first release of Blender Sync, we are already extending its functionality. Soon it will be possible to take a screenshot or a render output within Blender, and upload it automatically on the Cloud so that it can be shared with anyone. We hope you enjoy the new Blender Sync!
