Perforce + GitHub - New Perforce Helix Core Actions

Building a great game involves uniting team members and their tools. But too often, developers spend more time setting up their environment and building their pipeline, rather than innovating. Perforce Software has been working with Microsoft to address these challenges. It started with the Enhanced Studio Pack. This lets studios quickly launch a pre-configured environment with industry-leading tools.

Introducing Helix DAM (Beta)

On behalf of the product and engineering teams at Perforce, I am pleased to announce the Beta release of Helix Digital Asset Management, or Helix DAM for short. Helix DAM is the newest addition to the Helix Core Versioning & Collaboration Suite, that is purpose-built to help teams capitalize on and secure their creative digital assets.

Best Artifactory Alternatives: Helix Artifacts for Your Team

Using a package manager — also known as a repository or artifact manager — is a best practice for teams to secure their build pipelines and scale development. They can save developers time by breaking down silos, promoting reuse. For example, instead of needing to manually update each product that uses a binary component, you can simply update it once and changes will be available everywhere.

When Plastic SCM was acquired by Unity, game dev and VFX studios already using the Unity Engine started considering it more seriously for version control. Why?

But if you are starting to build the next great game or immersive cinematic experience, you’re eventually going to need to push the bounds of scale and performance.
