Pros
Perforce is great, when you master it. It becomes a very powerful and useful tool once you know how to use it.
It was so good very user friendly, especially features like label and conflicts tracking. Checkin and checkout features are awesome.
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.
Cons
It hanged during a demo which made the demo totally useless. Because of this issue getting difficult to work with only solution seem to be is to kill and restart application.
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.
Sometimes something will go wrong with a check-in and your files will get locked. Eclipse requires restart to reconnect to eclipse plugin.

Hard to master

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

Pros

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.

Cons

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

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Reviewed 7 years ago

Ease of use.

Pros

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.

Cons

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

Reviewed 5 years ago

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

Pros

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

Cons

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
