I would like a very interesting news. Maybe it happened much earlier, but I noticed only recently. Perforce version control system for the team up to 20 people can be used for free – http://www.perforce.com/

And during setup process across multiple machines, I decided to try to activate its support in Mobu. In fact, there is a ready-made plugin inside Mobu, and you can activate it through the configuration file Application.txt by adding

[Version Control]
CurrentManager = Perforce
AskOnStartup = Yes

In this case, we will connect to the local Perforce server. Further, in the configuration file Perforce.txt you should enter your User name and a Workspace name. And we get to our new Mobu main menu Version Control

mobu_version_control_menu

But on that step my knowledge of the configuration process ends. In the documentation there are a few lines about version control. Therefore, no answer to what version of perforce does MoBu support and how to specify a remote host?

Even in my case Mobu sees the database and there is a button to open the fbx file, but after clicking, nothing happens. Perhaps I have too recent version of a perforce server. I did not go further, at this stage my experiment integration with Mobu ended. If you have the answers to my questions, please write in the comments.
