Do I need git-lfs for a repository that will store big 3d files? (LAN repo, not online)

Do I need git-lfs for a repository that will store big 3d files? (LAN repo, not online)

 

I´m afraid to use standard GIT for such large binary files.

 

Some advice will be very welcome, I´m kind of newbie to GIT.

 

 

Thanks in advance!

If you are storing large binary files it is generally recommended to use Git LFS independent of whether you use Bitbucket Cloud or Bitbucket Server. Git was generally not built with large binary files in mind and Git LFS solves the issues that Git has with these large files.

To read up on why you should use LFS please see: https://blog.bitbucket.org/2016/07/18/git-large-file-storage-now-in-bitbucket-cloud/
