Guys
I'm trying to setup a project to be accessed by multiple users over source control (our case Perforce).
Has anyone done this?

hi !


just put the whole project folder onto a server/network drive, then import it into the CityEngine workspace from there on each user's machine. that's great also to back it up since it's only located in one spot...

I hope this helps !

Forgot to ask this should be doable with the demo version as well yes?

Suppose you still want to use a revision control program like perforce for the revision history features.  Are there files within a CityEngine workspace that aren't appropriate for adding to version control, such as the .lock files?

For example, I see these in my workspace:
.attribute_layer
.metadata
ce.lib

I was thinking ce.lib may be appropriate for version control, but I have no idea about the other two.

Hi !

ce.lib can be recreated, so you don't really have to backup that one.

the others contain metadata for the projects, but I guess they're not really crucial.
