Flexible User Management Capabilities

BeeHive’s real-time user management tools include: Customisable User Avatars that allow multiple users to easily identify themselves, others and even virtual cameras, as well the changes made by each avatar inside the scene. While User Highlighting streamlines collaborative working by ensuring all team members can always see what others are working on or have selected.

 

glassbox beehive data management

Powerful Data Management Toolset

BeeHive’s database intelligently stores a complete Transaction History of all actions performed in each multi-user BeeHive session, whether from a connected Unreal or Maya user. Ensuring every modification is logged in real-time and is never overwritten, and that all changes to the scene will persist even after a user disconnects. Thanks to its internal Version Control system, BeeHive streamlines collaborative working allowing users to move between scene history states to visualize changes, and removing the downtime incurred with a traditional VCS.

 

glassbox beehive collaboration

Simple Host and Client Collaboration Set Up

BeeHive makes it possible for any user working in Engine to set up as the host of an active scene or virtual world, defining where the Transaction History for that scene is stored. Client Users can then join and leave the scene at will via a network connection without interrupting the active scene, ensuring a fast and efficient setup for collaborative working.
