Frequently Asked Questions

You can also talk to us on Discord or reach us via support@anchorpoint.app

Can I use Anchorpoint offline?

Anchorpoint is a desktop application so you can always work offline. If you are working on a team project, you need an internet connection to synchronize with your team members.

Is Anchorpoint compatible to Dropbox or Google Drive?

Coming soon. Currently, every project in Anchorpoint is a Git project with which you can connect to GitHub and similar platforms. This is perfect for projects with game engines. For film and animation where you want to host your Data on Dropbox or Google Drive, you'll have to be patient for a while.

Can you tell me about pricing?

Anchorpoint is still in development and currently free to use. We will be announcing our pricing in the future. We will always have a free plan.

When will you launch?

We are launching at the end of this year. But you can already test Anchorpoint now, as the beta is open to the public.

Do you have a roadmap?

Sure, here is the link to our roadmap.

Will we get a Linux Version?

A Linux version is planned and will also come towards the end of the year.

Can I use Anchorpoint on a network drive?

Coming soon. This is the same case as with Dropbox. Currently, every project in Anchorpoint is a Git project with which you can connect to GitHub and similar platforms. This is perfect for projects with game engines. For film and animation where you want to host your Data on a NAS, you'll have to be patient for a while.

Can I self host a Git server?

Yes, you can set up a Git server yourself. Common solutions are e.g. Gitea or self-hosted GitLab. We have created a tutorial on our blog.

Where is the data for project versions stored?

In a Git based project, older versions are stored in a hidden .git folder, which is also located in your project. The whole project database is also located there. Since Git is a standardized system, even if Anchorpoint fails, you can restore old versions with any Git client (GitHub Desktop or SourceTree).

Does Anchorpoint support 2FA?

Not yet but it is planned. Please contact us if this is a deal breaker for you. We will find a solution.

Can I use my original project folder structure?

Absolutely. You can transfer your folder structure to Anchorpoint. Anchorpoint is not a closed system but works like a normal file browser à la Windows Explorer or macOS Finder.

Is there a Python API?

Of course. You can automate processes, create templates or create plugins to other applications with this API. Here you can find a documentation with examples.
