Perforce is used in a lot and studios and also used in many 3D animation school. You can share large document/ modify them and post them back in the project.

Minpunten:

Setting up the remote depots was not difficult in the final analysis, but getting our remote contractors to manage Helix was problematic.

Hard to master

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Perforce is great, when you master it. It becomes a very powerful and useful tool once you know how to use it.

Pluspunten:

Perforce is the perfect software if you want to work with a team remotely on the same project. In video game development, you could have 500 people working on the same game at the same time. Perforce allows everyone to work on specific things within the project from their own computers.

Minpunten:

Perforce's user interface is very complicated to understand and to master. Many people that I know, including me, make a lot of mistakes after and there is not enough information online to figure it out.

Solid easy to use source control

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We use Helix Core to store everything related to software - source code, artifacts, design documents, tests, test results, etc. It handles everything we throw at it with ease. In over 15 years of using Helix Core, we have not had any issues with data integrity, speed or storage.

Pluspunten:

The software is hosted by our company, is easy to manage, easy to maintain and does it's job. The primary focus for the tool is source control. While Helix Core allows for integration with other applications, it has remained true to being first and foremost a world-class source control management tool.

Minpunten:

Remote depots were slow and confusing, though that has seen much improvement in the past few years. Setting up the remote depots was not difficult in the final analysis, but getting our remote contractors to manage Helix was problematic. We would use remote depots again if the need arose, but internet speed increases, remote clients can just VPN into our network.

Easy to download and easy to work with.

3,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Ease of use.

Pluspunten:

All files are arranged neatly and in order for easier access. I find the information on all files to be up to date and time stamped according to when they were last edited.

Minpunten:

I had to manually set up my own workspace folder. Again once this was set up correctly the features seen in the depot folder are available in my workspace.

best source control software around

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: i've been using this product for almost 20 years, and i'm not planning to change any time soon. it does what i want. it's pretty easy to use. it can do just about anything you need it to do. the company stands behind their product, and they support it very well. what more needs to be said.

Pluspunten:

i have been using this product (both as Helix and Perforce) since 2000, and it's wonderful. it has just about every feature you could want. on those rare occasions when i had to contact their support department, i got answers immediately, and whatever the problem was, it was resolved very quickly. over the years, there was only one thing i wanted that the software couldn't do, but i easily created a workaround that did exactly what i needed.

Minpunten:

several years ago there was a feature called "windows explorer integration". that feature has gone away in the more recent versions, which is too bad, as it was quite useful. there are other ways to do the same thing, but it was a nice feature to have around.

Helix

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Helix is used in the main big studios to share files in a project. And is very important to learn and understand well this software before working in the industry.

Pluspunten:

Perforce is used in a lot and studios and also used in many 3D animation school. You can share large document/ modify them and post them back in the project

Minpunten:

It could get confusing , there aren't tutorials and you can easily erase files in a important project. without a good internet connection transfering file could take alot of time

Great tool, easy to use but missing some important functions like searching capabilities and sorting

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It is a good source control program

Pluspunten:

Easy to use, has most common features intuitive. I like most the revision graph that assists in finding the history of a file.

Minpunten:

Search capabilities are poor. There is not enough filtering capabilities while searching for files, jobs, Change Lists or any other entity. I would also expect the ability of more complex searches to combine filters. e.g. search all jobs/Change lists by a certain user for a specific branch. Such option does not exist.

A powerful tool once you learn how to use it

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: My overall experience has been both using it for testing and software development. On on hand, I will occasionally be tasked to look at previous revisions to locate when a bug was introduced in our software. On the other hand, I also upload my own work to our repository, as a part of the project.

Pluspunten:

What I like most is how powerful it is when it comes to moving between revisions. Even in huge projects, it is not difficult to revert back to and older, or newer, version of your project.

Minpunten:

While this software is powerful, it is also difficult to use. It can take a lot of time and practice, and even some mistakes, before you fully grasp what the software can do.

Helix Core Review

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

the GUI interface with side-by-side compare is very useful. the shelve feature is also something better than git stash

Minpunten:

I had a hard time install p4 command line version in Ubuntu 14. https://www.perforce.com/downloads/helix-command-line-client-p4 it downloaded the website index.html, not any installer file it might be better to support apt-get for ubuntu version. Or have the app in the Ubuntu marketplace

High quality product with new features being added continually

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

Excellent control at file level, easy tracing of history, multi-platform support, good UI interface. We've had hundreds of developers using it for thousands of lines of code in hundreds of branches over many years and been very happy. We've had very good support.

Minpunten:

It is difficult to rename or move files without causing issues for merging. I hear our enterprise license is very expensive.

Very good product. Easy to use. Stable.

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

The Perforce diff and merge tool. Very nice way the tool works when merging files, split screen and colors.

Minpunten:

Installing updates or recover the database (we had a server with a defect HDD) is for me a kind of avoiding thing. I have had errors when recovering the P4 server, and in the end skipped the update, waited for the next release, which recovered without errors.

Good software but not easy to setup

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

The GUI use is well done. You don't have to use a third party software to connect to this server and start using source control.

Minpunten:

We had somme weird behavior while using this code source control. Probably cause by us but it was desapointing.

I have grown accustomed to this software.

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Peace of mind for source control. Being able to roll back changes.

Pluspunten:

I like the Eclipse plugin. Branch history display is fairly intuitive. Merging tool works pretty well.

Minpunten:

Sometimes something will go wrong with a check-in and your files will get locked. Eclipse requires restart to reconnect to eclipse plugin. Eclipse perforce client does not remember my password. With the upgraded perforce Helix client some of my changelists are now indicating different colors (blue and black) and have become difficult to resolve. The eclipse plugin does not recognize added files.

Build and Manage Complex Software Across Its Entire Lifecycle

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It helps me manage all digital content'even large files'in a single repository, and delivers files quickly to large, distributed teams.

Pluspunten:

It's amazing to use Helix Visual Client (P4V) on different OS platform with similar user experience, really like perforce's strong notion of a changelist.

Minpunten:

It would be expensive for small & medium scale project. If the data infrastructure is loosely bonded (there is off-line time), svn rocks. You can do a lot even if the server would not be reachable. Perforce essentially requires an always-available server connection.

Fairly easy to use

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We are transitioning to use test track as our primary management system for releases. It helps keep track of everything with the releases.

Pluspunten:

Requirements documents have made running through our test cycles must faster. Easy to create test cases off the requirement docs my company creates. I also like the ability to regenerate test runs.

Minpunten:

There is no good way for us to 'only' use Helix for releases. We must rely on other ways to track when releases are started, in development, ready for QA, and ready to be deployed. Right now we use folders for only QA, but it isn't ideal.

Really good tool for maintaining documents and code.

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

Integration with C# and Java application - API features. Label feature - to bundle the code Merge and Integrate feature - it is must for teams working in multiple iterations of code. Very easy and intuitive look and feel.

Minpunten:

Renaming of folder looses version history. There got to be some easy mechanism to keep a log of operations on the folder (renamed)

I love properties of perforce like finding differences, merging, code review capabilities and UI

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

File comparison between different versions. Labeling and branching. Filtering with different user names, dates, and changelists.

Minpunten:

Merging should be more intelligent. I get sometimes unwanted changes also merged when automatic merge is on. The merge UI is not so great.

Its pretty decent version control software and easy to understand and use.

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

File level permissions. Difference against multiple versions of source code. Can work on it while offline. Its centralized to my organization. Very flexible (and partial) checkouts (with customizable workspaces/clients), whereas it only supports full clones

Minpunten:

Somehow I feel that is slower than git and also it takes lots of space in disk. I have to keep track of merges in P4v.

Opmerkingen: We use this for version controlling and to document our artifacts

Pluspunten:

The ease of use and simple user interface is very simple to use. We did not need to explain more about the product to the new users.

It just works !!!

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Great version control, it always seems to work, developers never complain.

Pluspunten:

Easy to use, developers are familiar with Helix Core and are easily able to check files in and out. Great Version Control.

Minpunten:

Sometimes there is latency. Getting new users up to speed takes a bit longer the average. We still have to contact support for some of the administrator tasks.

i don't think i would trade this software for anything

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: it keeps track of everything. i find the labelling feature particularly useful, so you can retrieve all the files (exactly) that went into a particular release.

Pluspunten:

i have used other CM systems before Helix. this product has all the features of the others, works on more platforms, and is easier to use.

Minpunten:

sometimes administration can be a little counter-intuitive. there are certain administrative tasks the force you to go from screen to screen to screen to find what you are looking for. also, the upgrade process requires too many manual steps (at least it used to, perhaps that has changed).

Opmerkingen: Good for editing and submitting code.

Pluspunten:

Features are good. I found it convenient. I don't have much experience with other competitive tools.

Minpunten:

Sometimes finding a help is difficult online. Would be better if they provide chat session for customer support.

Easy simple and efficient!

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

I like that it is easy to understand who has certain documents checked out. The work space is easy to define and use. I enjoy that any file can be put on revision control.

Minpunten:

I dislike how when you switch computers it is difficult to keep the documents check out. I got a new computer and I had to contact the admin to release some documents that I had checked out.
